Makeup Edit: L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Exclusive Blake Lively Red Lipstick

You can never have too many red lipsticks can you? Well that was the logic I ran with when I popped into Boots to take a look at the new L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Exclusive Reds collection, and I knew which red I was after straight away, Blake Lively Red!

This particular lipstick was always going to be a must have for me, purely for the fact that I'm a huge GG fan (I'm talking hard core, I was watching GG on YouTube before it even aired) and Blake Lively along with her golden tresses is pure perfection! Plus she has fab taste in husbands hehe. The fact that Blake's shade happens to be a true "Me" shade was just a lucky coincidence.

It's a gorgeous pink toned bright red that's super creamy and easy to apply. As with all red shades, I always like to use a lip liner just to add extra longevity and create a smooth base. For the first coat I used a lip brush and followed with the bullet to intensify the colour. This lipstick isn't matte, it's more of a satin finish but that actually makes is sit more comfortably on the lips. It doesn't feel in the slightest bit drying or tight.

Staying power wise it's pretty good, I had a cuppa and quite a large piece of cake right after I took these pictures and the colour was still intact. I probably wouldn't wear it during a 3 course meal, but for tea and cake with the girls it's the perfect red lip.

What is your favourite "Red" lipstick? If you have yet to jump on the GG bandwagon, what have you been doing with your life? Get thee to Neflix and indulge in all six seasons, you can thank me later.

XOXO Claire

  18. Hey! I just wondering how thick the fabric is? Would you say that it is a coat suitable for winter? I live in sweden and it's pretty cold here in the winter. But I have a really thick winterjacket but that one I wear when it's like -10 Celcius...

  19. I think if might not be warm enough for -10, here in England it doesn't get that cold, luckily.
