After seeing a couple ads for this Loreal Colour Riche Collection Privee nude lipstick offering, and with spring on the way, I had to try them! These can be found in a range of stores – I’ve seen them at Target, Walgreens, Ulta and Bed Bath & Beyond. They also range in price depending on the store and discounts available – I got two at Walgreens at a buy one ($10.49) and get one 50% off ($5.24), and one at Target ($6.29).
There are six lipsticks in this collection of nudes to choose from, offering a range of shades and options – at least one that will look beautiful on each skin tone. With the smokey eye, all the rage, a nude lipstick is the perfect compliment. Wearing a nude lip allows smokey eyes or black lined eyes with black mascara to be the focal point of your look, and also pairs gorgeously with a rosy, pink cheek.
Loreal’s 2015 collection offers six nude tones (*the 3 that I purchased):
Jennifer’s Nude* (had to get this one, of course!) by Jennifer Lopez – a pale rose beige/grey nude, for medium olive skin tones
Freida’s Nude by Freida Pinto – a slightly parma violet/lilac nude, for honey skin tones
Doutzen’s Nude by Doutzen Kroes – a baby pink nude, for fair/light skin tones
Liya’s Nude* by Liya Kebede – a purple/brown nude, for deeper skin tones
Julianne’s Nude by Julianne Moore – a warm pink/peach nude, for fair skin tones
Eva’s Nude* by Eva Longoria – a beige pink nude, for light/medium skin tones
To wear a nude best, exfoliate lips, next apply a lip balm to prep the surface and ensure extra moisture, then use a lip brush to apply color or use it directly from the tube (depending on preference). Make sure to get color into the corners of lips and top with a clear gloss for a full effect. Then, brush on a flushed pink blush on cheeks for a nice contrast.
These lip products smell similarly to other Loreal lip products – they have a bit of a sweet, powdery smell. And, note that color swatches on the Loreal site are not necessarily true to actual color (I have found).
Let me know if you have a favorite nude of this brand or another. You go Gorgeous!
