L’Oreal Color Riche Shine Gelée...

L'Oréal Paris Color Riche Shine Gelée is L’Oreal’s first lip gelée enriched with Royal Jelly. This formula provides the delicious colour of a lipstick, the crystal-shine of a lip gloss and the nourishing moisture of a lip balm and cocoons lips in a conditioning formula that nourishes like a balm and shines like a gloss. Lips are left hydrated, nourished and even dry lips feel soothed. The smooth texture glides on effortlessly for a subtle boost of colour with a non-sticky finish.

The Verdict:
Unexpected presents from friends are always a source of great delight, especially when they’ve been picked out with love. This little gift travelled quite a way to get here, and the gifter couldn’t have picked out a nicer item or colour. The shade I got was #101 – Shiny Grapefruit which is reminiscent of a shimmery “pink grapefruit” shade.

Given my penchant for pink grapefruit and all things citrus, it’s not surprising I went “ooo…grapefruit!!” the minute I saw it. Sadly it didn’t smell of grapefruit, but had more of a rose scent. The colour is lovely albeit slightly sheerer than what you see in the tube but feels simply smooth and glossy on my lips, not to mention lasts quite a while too. Truth be told, there isn’t much (if any) to not like about this lippie. Sadly this isn’t available locally, otherwise I’d have bought a few more just because! :D

L’Oreal Color Riche Shine Gelée is available in 11 shades. It was a gift from a friend (hence the lack of pricing), and is available in Australia as well as UK if I’m not mistaken.

Rating: 4 / 5
Value: N/A (you can’t put a price on a gift like this! :D)
