when i learned that l’oréal and balmain partnered to bless us lippie addicts with this designer matte collection, i freaked out. color riche is balmain’s first limited-edition collection of 12 tailor-made lipsticks designed by mastermind himself, olivier rousteing.
i tried 2 colors that are vastly different, which i’d wear either day, night, and according to my mood in general.
one thing a boss bish has to realize, there are no makeup ‘rules’. wear your personal style proudly, regardless of the trends you see or read about. pick shades that suit your personality, feel, and overall aesthetic.
despite being a designer product, these lipsticks are reasonably, and competitively priced, at $14.
what i like about these lipsticks are the following
attributes that makeup the formula:
– ultra thin – smooth- lightweight- non-drying – matte-
meet urban safari. it photographs darker, but appears lighter while on. it is a pale nude/pink.
meet power- i love this color! it’s so rich and buildable. you can wear it softly, or add on layers for a deeper, darker lip.
in nyc, i bought my shades at barneys. they can be ordered in the link below. if you happen to try these limited-edition shades, leave your likes/dislikes in the comments!
