L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Privee - The Nudes, photos, swatches

Ooh this is a collection I can get behind!  If I was to go through my lipstick stash and pick out all of the nude lipsticks I have, I'd be here all day.  I have a lot of nude shades and one of my aims in life is to find The Perfect Nude.  It's a quest I've put a lot of time and money in to and those of us that love nude lips will know what I'm talking about.  And what might be a perfect nude for me mightn't be so perfect for you.

L'Oreal's Collection Privee is a range of six nude lipsticks, custom made to suit all skin tones.  They've worked with the spokesmodels we see on all the ads telling us we're worth it and each of them had an input into what shade suited their specific skin tone.  I've got four to play with today so let's get to it eh?


The black tubes have gold detailing on them along with the signature of each spokesmodel which is a nice touch.  Freida Pinto, Eva Longoria, Julianne Moore and Doutzen Kroes have made the cut alongside our Cheryl Cole and Liya Kebede to complete the six strong lipstick wardrobe. 




Each of the lipsticks are smooth and creamy, almost feeling like a lip balm when I apply them.  They feel comfortable and moisturising on the lips and have a good bit of slip in them for when I like to smush my lips together as I like to do.

Left-Right: Freida, Eva, Julianne, Doutzen
The Frieda nude has a mauve undertone to it and looks lighter on the lips compared to my arm.  Eva's nude is a light peachy shade and is the most pigmented of the four here.  The Julianne nude is a rosy pink shade and would suit pale complexions and finally Doutzen's nude is the lightest of the four shades and looks almost frosty on the lips, but the shine in the formula stops it from being too 1980s.

Top row: Freida (L), Eva (R)
Bottom row: Julianne (L), Doutzen (R)
Of the four shades I've been playing with, Eva and Julianne's shades are my favourite.  That being said, I'm going to have to head to Boots soon and see what Cheryl's shade looks like in the flesh!

The Color Riche Collection Privee are €11.99 and are in shops now.  Which is your favourite nudey lip?

  5. Oh that's interesting! You have Julianne and here instead it was J Lo. If you want them run to the store since here in Montreal they're already hard to find. I wanted Eva and J Lo but they're sold out already. I would have loved to see Julianne's coz it's super lovely and right up my alley as well. :)
