It'll come as no surprise that matte lips aren't going anywhere this year. And thanks to newer, more moisturising formulas, I don't have to worry about my lips looking like a bum hole. Yes, I used the words bum hole in the opening paragraph of my blog post. Twice. That's going to do wonders for my SEO. New from L'Oreal Paris is the Matte Addiction lipstick collection and with 16 shades, I'm already wanting to check out the rest of them. I was sent three shades and each of them are gorgeous!
They've the usual distinctive scent that only a L'Oreal lipstick has, but slightly less strong than other ones I've used in the past. These are enriched with Camelia oil to make them more comfortable to wear, less drying and are packed full of pigment. I mean it. You're not going to need to keep swiping them over your lips because they pack a punch in the colour payoff department and are smooth and creamy too. They don't fully set on the lips meaning there is some transfer but I'd rather that than dry lips! I've been testing out Erotique all week and it lasts a couple of hours on the lips before I need to reapply and when it's time to add more, my lips are left lightly stained by the first layer.
L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction Lipstick Shade 640 Erotique
It's only fitting that someone with a blog called Lovely Girlie Bits would love a lipstick called Erotique. But it's stunning and I've been wearing it all week. This peachy warm toned neutral shade was made for me and is one of the many neutral shades carried around with me in my handbag, ready to make me feel more put together at a moment's notice. Love this a very lot.
L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction Lipstick Shade 463 Plum Tuxedo
Plum Tuxedo was a lovely surprise when I started to apply it because I thought it was going to be too dark for me from looking at it in the bullet. Instead, it's a bright, beautiful, wearable plum shade that instantly makes my eyes look greener. I'm going to make it my mission to be not afraid and wear this shade out and about!
L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Matte Addiction Lipstick Shade 347 Haute Rouge
You know that reds absolutely terrify me and while I'm happy to sit at home and film in them, wearing them outside the house (or the office) makes me super self conscious. Some day I'll go wild and wear a red out and about and based on comfort and shade, this is most definitely one that'll be on the list
They retail at €11.99 but at the time of writing this post, they're on offer in Boots for €10.49 and there's a 3 for 2 deal going on too. I want a coral one. But who buys one lipstick? Which would mean I'd have to get 2, but then with the offer, I'd be mad not to get a third one for free. And this is why I'm broke and have more lipsticks than sense! But these are too lovely not to pick up more of!
