We all know by now I’m a lipstick girl and that I own more than 30 lippies at last count LOL… I never did finish off Day 30 of my lipstick feature did I? Well consider this one compensation! 😀

Many readers noted that my lipsticks all tended towards the rose-red end of the spectrum, a color that suits me well. So, it looks like the new L’oreal Color Riche Glam Rose  lipstick collection was made just for me! Haha… 😀

L'oreal Glam Rose Color Riche

5 new shades of the bestselling L’Oreal Color Riche lipstick line for Asian skins and matched to your skintone so you never have to work out which works best for you. From left to right :-

  • Baby Rose 632 – Porcelain skintone
  • Rose Sunset 634 – Porcelain skintone
  • Rose Crimson 631 – Golden Tan skintone
  • Rose Petal 630 – Rose skintone
  • Rose Blush 633 – Golden Fair skintone

The skintones are a guideline, not a firm rule. I fall under the Porcelain skintone category and yes Baby Rose is a gorgeous “my lips but better” shade. However, Rose Sunset is a little too warm and Rose Petal is lovely to brighten up my face! I’ve featured the swatches below after the jump.

My favourite is Baby Rose a “my lips but better” look. Because its so sweet and delicate, I can just imagine pairing this with Miss Dior Cherie perfume and putting on a pretty summer dress and run barefooted in the fields. Its pretty – make no mistake!

loreal rose sunset

Rose Sunset is warm orange with gold tones. It would be lovely if you can handle warm colours. Although slated for Porcelain skintones, I reckon it would make a lovely neutral if you are tanned.

loreal crimson lipstick

Rose Crimson is marked for Golden Tan skintones but I rather like this too. Very nice if you can handle strong colours. Its not as berry as it looks in the tube and goes on my lips a lovely creamy rose red. I’m one for strong lips so I don’t mind this one too!

l'oreal rose glam rose petal

Rose Petal is a favourite of mine. Its a sheer bright pink that instantly brightens up my face. I’m not sure what Rose skintone implies. I reckon it means those with a pink undertone. Its beautiful and I’ve been wearing it out! Perhaps since this works for me, this means I have a Rose Skintone?!

l'oreal glam rose blush

Rose Blush for Golden Fair skintones is a peachy rose with warm gold tones on my lips. Its actually very wearable for most people I would think. If you have a tan, it would make a pretty neutral lip.

The thing I noticed most about the new L’oreal Glam Rose lipsticks is that they all look solid and dark in the tube but apply more sheer and in some cases, rather different from what you see in the tube.

The texture is sheer, glossy and fragrance free! I somehow feel they have taken a leaf out of the Japanese lipstick book because these feel just like Japanese lipsticks at a much more affordable price!

Each L’Oreal Color Riche Rose Glam lipstick retails for RM33.90 and is available at most L’Oreal counters. As usual, watch out for discounts at Watsons and Guardian – sale time’s a great time to pick these up.

So, which L’oreal Rose Glam lipstick do you think will suit you best? :)

Stay beautiful,

Paris B

Ah, Loreal lipsticks are actually quite amazing!! I love their Star Secret ones (especially the Aishwarya Rai ones!!)… so pretty!!

I like Rose Petal the best, but I think Rose Blush would look better on me!! But i have to say, all 5 lippies look great on you Paris! 😀

Hi Jenn

Thanks ! A long time ago, I had a Color Riche. I wasn’t so impressed. but this time, I’m quite stunned at how similar in quality it is to Japanese lippies which I love! So did my taste change or the texture change? 😉

All the shades look pretty on your lips PB, my favorite is Bright Pink! It looks so natural on you!


ParisB July 22, 2009 at 2:58 pm

Hi Nikki

Thank you! Its quite strange eh? but that shade really brightens up my face so its a keeper!


aichaku July 22, 2009 at 11:38 am

ParisB July 22, 2009 at 2:59 pm

Hi Aichaku

If you have similar colouring try Rose Petal. Its really pretty.

are these limited edition? i was totally attracted to how Rose Crimson looks in the tube, it looks like a dupe for MAC Most Popular, which i love and is LE (but of course *shakes fist at MAC). but the swatch on your lips looks different… but i might still have to check it out myself!


ParisB July 22, 2009 at 3:01 pm

Hi Jooj

I don’t think its limited edition. Just some new rose shades to complement the existing line. I’m so clueless with MAC but do let us know if its a good dupe :)


Irene July 23, 2009 at 12:29 am

Except for Rose Sunset, I can prolly wear all of them. All the shade looks flattering on you tho.

Rose Blush looks awesome on the tube. 😀 Hopefully Watsons will discount em next month so I can get that one.


ParisB July 23, 2009 at 10:01 am

Hi Irene

I’m not sure but I know Watsons is having 10% off L’oreal now and these are already available in some Watson’s stores. Take a look? 😉
