Hello, and welcome to the second entry of my Love Letter series! In my first post, I talked about how instead of doing a monthly favorites entry, I am just going to focus on the one product I couldn’t get enough of during the previous month. And for February, it was the Loreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in the shade “Varnished Rosewood”.
I am a sucker for all lip products and frequently purchase them impulsively. Like, I know I already have 6 shades of slightly different nudes, but this one has a different undertone so I *need* it. So I knew when I heard Mariah Leonard talk about this formula in a recent video of hers, the decision was made before I consciously even thought it: I was going to buy that lipstick. What I didn’t count on was how much I would truly obsess over it. I’ve tried (really, I have) to wear other lip products since buying this lipstick but I have gotten nowhere. The formula just makes my lips look so juicy and glossy that I can’t get enough. With just enough color to be a lipstick, it works for pretty much any occasion: work, night out, minimal makeup, or just lounging in your apartment because you love it *that* much and want to see it on your lips as you pass every mirror in your home.
Shine is truly the best word to describe this product. It makes your lips look glossy but without the sticky feel of an actual gloss. Next time I am at Target I will be buying every shade they have in this formula.
