My Experience with L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Gold Obsession Lipstick Coral Gold
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a classy, black and gold ombre, glossy packaging with a shade color button, helping to pick the shade easily. The shade number and name are printed at the bottom in a color-coded sticker. The cap shuts with a click and does not break or open in the bag. “Coral Gold” is endorsed by actress Chompoo and has her signature on the packaging. Its svelte-pointed tip makes it easy to apply even to the inner corner of the lips and also to draw smoothly on the Cupid’s bow. The packaging looks really luxurious.
Texture: The texture of this lipstick is very creamy and glides smoothly on the lips. This shade is pretty well pigmented. Although other shades need just a single swipe, “Le Gold” and “Coral Gold” require a couple of swipes to cover up pigmented lips. It gives a glossy finish. This lipstick is extremely moisturizing, and a great change to those drying matte lipsticks. The fine 24 carat gold particles cannot be seen or felt as they are completely infused with the color.
Shade: “Coral Gold” is a pretty muted orange shade. It is not that bright neon orange, thus making it wearable even for duskier skin tones. It is a perfect shade for the upcoming summer.
Below are swatches of all shades available in this range.
Performance: This lipstick features velvety pigments mixed with a touch of pure gold for an illuminated finish and gold lipstick look. This shade is a warm but wearable orange. Being glossy and pigmented, it makes the lips look voluminous. Its illuminating shimmers give an illusion of plumper, fuller lips. This shade will look different on various skin tones: on fair skin tones, it may look a bright orange, whereas on medium and deeper skin tones, it may look a perfect mix of coral and orange. The lipstick glides like butter and does not settle into fine lines. The product feels soft and nothing on the lips. It does transfer a lot being a creamy lipstick. It did not bleed nor feather at all. In fact, this lipstick being enriched with the goodness of jojoba oil, it is quite hydrating on the lips despite how matte it looks on the tube. It does not accentuate any dry patches. This shade could be worn alone or paired up with “Le Gold” to create a unique lip look. This lip color lasted for around 3–4 hours; the initial sheen faded off first and then there was only a bit of staining left on the lips. A lip liner underneath might give an extended wear time. This lipstick is easy to remove. The pricing is quite steep. Overall, there is a gold obsession lipstick for every mood.
