This lipstick has been like a little gem hidden away in my drawers. Originally I brought it for my mum, but I actually brought the wrong one for her and not being one for turning down a lipstick I kept it for myself. I do love a good red lipstick, although they can seem a little scary, but I’ve found the trick is to keep swatching until you find the right red for you.
The lipstick in question is L’Oreal Color Riche Boosting Serum Lipstick in ‘Bright Burgundy’. The formula contains Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid, to hydrate and plump with moisture and you can see this encased in the centre of the lipstick.

The colour of the red itself reminds me of cherries, its vibrant but not in your face red. Once on the lipstick feels very moisturising and has a lovely sheen to it which lasts until the lipstick starts to wear. Although I have to say that when it does start to wear, it really shows. It kind of rubs away but leaves the lips looking really patchy and dry, so I would just watch out for this. Other than that, the lipstick’s texture and colour is beautiful and I am really glad mum decided she didn’t want it! ♥
