Blake Lively has been gracing red carpets and front covers for a while now and with her gorgeous blonde hair and perfect skin she’s definitely my beauty idol. After the success of Loreal’s nudes collection it wasn’t long before they brought out the beautiful reds, consisting of different shades of red lipstick from famous faces such as Blake, Eva, Liya and Julianne. Being a blonde and in adoration of Blake Lively I had to go for the ‘Blake’ even if I was hugely influenced by the fact is was ‘Blakes’.
The packaging is chic and has a great pointed shape to the lipstick which makes it much easier to apply such a bold lip colour, especially if you’re not using liner. I would describe the lipstick as a cooler toned red with blue/pink undertones, which makes your teeth look super white and shiny! Some people have commented on the smell of the Loreal lipsticks and they’re obviously no Mac lipstick but I don’t think they have a ‘smell’ and it really didn’t bother me. It’s a really beautiful colour and even though I don’t think it’s a typical Autumn/Winter shade I will definitely be wearing it throughout the Fall. For only £6.99 you really can’t go wrong and I’m very tempted to go and pick up a few more!
Have you tried any of the Loreal Colour Riche Red Collection? Which is your favourite?
