Drugstore Buy of the Week - L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Reds, Eva's Red

Last year, I shared with you one of the great Nude shades for women of color, L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Lip Color, Liya's Nude 630  which was part of their Exclusive Nudes collection

This year the Paris Colour Riche Collection has created multiple red lipsticks inspired by all of their celebrity and model ambassadors.  The one I was drawn to the most happened to be L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Reds, Eva's Red 403, inspired by actress, Eva Longoria.  

Red lipstick is something that most women either REALLY love - or stay away from like the plague, because it can sometimes be hard to find the right one for your skin tone (as well as your undertones).

I happen to love lots of different reds, but I find that I most often go back to the reds which have a warmer or brown/brick red base to them

As you can probably tell from the photo above, this is a red that's much more in the brownish/orange category - but with my skin tone, it definitely still reads as red, just a very warm one.  I think Eva's Red is so pretty for Fall and does well with brown/chocolate shadows and a dark brown smoky eye.  

Even better than the color is the texture and quality of the lipstick.  It has a very creamy texture with lots of slip, so it glided effortlessly over my lips.  It also stayed put while keeping my lips moisturized for hours on end - I was very impressed!  The finish is a satin-matte, so it had a touch of sheen, but no shine.

The L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche pigmentation is also incredible.  Just one light swipe of the lipstick on my lips and I had the exact, rich color from the tube.  The packaging is great too - it's a special limited edition case with gold lettering, Eva's autograph in gold and a black rubberized lipstick casing.

If you're looking for reasonably priced warm red to add to your collection - this is the one! - RLB
