L’Oreal Violet Attitude Colour Riche Le Gloss
L’Oreal Violet Attitude Colour Riche Le Gloss ($8) is a rosy-magenta with a pearly sheen and a glossy finish. Colour Riche Le Gloss is infused with ultra-hydrating Omega 3, protective Vitamin E, and Argan Oil for intense moisture and shine. You can wear these glosses alone or layered over your favorite lipstick. Le Gloss is available in 16 sensual shades from deep plum to crystal clear.
If you’re looking for a really saturated with color gloss, these aren’t going to be it. There are many bright and fun colors, but the color payoff is on the sheer side. I’ve seen swatches where they look really pigmented, but on the lips, many of them appear the same. I think they’re great for the Summer though, or just about any time you’re going for the a natural glossy lip.
They have a fruity, sort-of vanilla scent – and normally I don’t care for scents in my lip products, but I don’t feel that the scent of these cheapen the product or turn them into “kiddy” glosses. I kinda like it.
Also, I really like the simple name of the lipgloss. Le Gloss or The Gloss in French just has a bit of a high-end ring to it. (You can put French words on anything and it sounds expensive, right?) The lipglosses also have a really slim, squeeze-tube design which is super lightweight, and perfect for your pocket or bag.
I think these lip glosses are great, but truthfully, I don’t think there is much that sets them apart from the rest. I love the packaging, the moisturizing feel and the glossiness, but I just prefer something with either longer staying power or bolder color. I really like the color I chose, but I probably won’t be purchasing additional shades. (Don’t quote me on this though, I tend to buy on impulse.)
- Cute, convenient packaging
- Fun colors
- Feels great on the lips
- Glossy finish
- Reasonably priced
- Very sheer color
- Isn’t very long-lasting
- Contains fragrance which is bothersome to many in lip products – I don’t particularly care for artificial scented lip products, but I don’t mind this one.
