30 Years of Color Riche #coloryourlifeforcharity

by 16.10.15

In the year of 1985 the Color Riche lipstick from L’Oreal was born. In that same year I also became part of this world. Funny fact is that lipstick is one of my favorite beauty items.

The color range is endless. There are nudes, pinks, reds, purples and all the colors in between. The finishes vary from creamy to matt, semi opaque and even the glitters come out to play.

I’ve swatched 14 our of the 24 lipsticks that came in the box. You all have seen me with red lipstick and L'Oreal has several red beauties in their collection.

From all the lipsticks I was most curious about the ones with the matt finish. They are actually my favorite out of the anniversary box.

Let’s get swatching!

The Nudes

The Corals

The Pinks

The Purples

My favorites are 228 VIP and 144 Ouh Lala and 374 Intense Plum. They are a beautiful coral, a kick ass pink purple and a sultry plum shade. Intense plum is a perfect autumn shade. Overall, I prefer creamy and matt shades.


The lipsticks from which €1 will be donated, will have this image on them.

L’Oreal Paris has a special Color Riche Charity edition in stores at the moment. The charity lies closes to my heart.

From each Color Riche Charity lipstick that is sold (they have the image printed on them that I shown above), €1 will be donated to DKMS LIFE. It is a daughter organisation of ‘DKMS Stiftung Leben Spenden’ that offers free make up seminars to help women during their fight against cancer to ‘look good, feel better’.

If L’Oreal reaches 10.000 #coloryourlifeforcharity, they will donate an extra €10.000 to DKMS Life!
