For quite a while now, the lipstick has been THE essential product we are wearing every day and always carry at least one in the bag. When it comes to everyday makeup, both of us stick to the rule “less is more”, and that’s why we usually like to keep our daily makeup look quite natural. However, one thing that is impossible for us not to wear when we leave our houses is an appropriate lipstick. To be honest, we would feel like naked without a lipstick, because to us, a lipstick is such a perfect tool to make even an effortless daily makeup look polished and fancy.
For this reason, we were more than happy when L’Oréal Paris asked the 2 of us to try their new Color Riche Matte Addiction lipstick range and to create two looks for two different occasions. We couldn’t wait to try them out and find our favorites.
L’oreal has kept it simple as well as classic in all these lipsticks. Overall, there are a total of 8 shades in this range:
- 633 Moka Chic
- 634 Greige Perfecto
- 241 Pink-a-Porter
- 103 Blush in a Rush
- 104 Strike a Rose
- 463 Plum Tuxedo
- 346 Scarlet Silhouette
- 349 Paris Cherry
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction lipsticks deliver intense moisture while providing a velvet matte finish. On one hand, the unique formula contains Jojoba oil which provides a long lasting moisture for the lips. On the other hand, thanks to their matte gel technology, every shade creates an intense matte and noble look. And the best part about this lipstick range: all the lipsticks are long lasting and very easy to apply.
TIMO’S DATE NIGHT LOOK WITH “463 Plum Tuxedo”
A few years ago, I used to only wear a transparent lip gloss on my lips, but at some point, I dared to wear a red lipstick and all of my friends thought it looked great on me and that’s how I´ve become a huge fan of red-colored lipsticks. My private collection contains all the red shades: from pink, bright reds all over to berry and plum shades like the plum-colored one I’m wearing on these pictures. This plum shade is ideal for when I want something feminine and dressy – simply perfect for my date night look.
One thing I like about red lipsticks ist the confident feeling I have when I wear them. I can’t even put it into words, but I simply feel like I could achieve just anything when I wear them. I suppose it’s my lucky color somehow.
Another thing I love about red-colored lipsticks is the fact that they are a perfect tool to spice up any look. Even if I decide to wear only “the little black one” on my date night, it can look fabulous and dressed up if I “combine it” with my favorite red-shade like Plum Toxedo. I love this shade especially because the plum sets into a illuminated yet matte finish.
SARA’S LOOK FOR A GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT WITH “346 Scarlet Silhouette”
This shade is a perfect scarlet red. Neither too warm, nor too cool toned. A shade which would suit all skin tones and actually be great for all occasions. The thing I really love about this lipstick is that has has subtle gold shimmers in it, but sets into a comfortable matte finish so it isn’t too shiny, but just perfect.
Timo is a person who loves to wear red in the morning, during the day, in the evening – actually all the time. I, however, love wearing it on occasions when I’m feeling playful, girly or like partying. Don’t know why, but the lipstick has quite an impact on my mood and vice versa – I choose my lipstick based on my mood.
One special occasion when I love wearing red is when I meet my girls for a night out, because I always know it’s always going to be a fabulous night, the mood will be great and I’ll be feeling good. Another thing that we also have to admit is that every woman loves to get attention when she’s in a bar or in a club and a red lipstick is just an eye catcher and effectively guarantees that you’ll get attention.
However, it’s not just about wearing a red lipstick. We mustn’t forget one certain rule while wearing it, especially if it’s quite a bright shade like this one.
If you wear bold lip color, keep your eye makeup simple.
Of course, you can wear both dramatic eye makeup and a bold lipstick together, but then you really have to watch out, because it’s quite risky that it’s going to be too much. I rather stick to the safe side and let my lips be the touch of glamour on my minimalist makeup.
