L’Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Ballerina Shoes Review

IMG_6023 (2) So I decided to try one of the classic L’Oreal lip colors in Ballerina Shoes. It’s a medium pink with warm peach tones. Or at least it looks more like a warm peachy pink on me. And it’s a classic frosty look, which surprisingly I don’t have too many of.

IMG_6025 (2) It comes housed in a golden , metal tube, and is fairly lightweight.

I kind of like this peachy color.

IMG_6035 (3)Here’s a swatch with flash. Excuse the scratches, those are from my cockatiel. I let him climb around on my arm sometimes.

No flash natural lighting, it looks a bit more sheer here.

IMG_6169 (2)Applied on the lips it did tend to settle a bit in lip lines. Also it was a bit sheer looking in certain lighting. But it did have a nice frosty shine.

IMG_6172 (2)Here’s a better more in focus picture.

Now I will say I didn’t mind the sheer application, it’s great for when I want to go for more subtle looks. But the heavy perfume smell was a bit much for me. It’s not the greatest scent and is overly floral. I’m more into vanilla, or fruity scents than how this lipstick smells.

IMG_6176 (3)I know I recycled a picture from my Smashbox review, But I thought the lipstick went well with the eye makeup. It does read a bit more of a peachy-pink on my skin.  I think I do like the color just not the strong perfumy smell. It’s fairly easy to find and inexpensive but I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who has issues with scented lipsticks. It lingers on a bit too much.  Well that’s all for now let me know in the comment section on your favorite peachy/pink lipsticks .

  1. I used to use this brand! Yes, it totally smells perfumey, just like its more expensive Sister brand, Lancome. I can’t stand the smell of L’Oreal and Lancome lipsticks. I agree that vanilla or something sweet can be nice, but not that perfumey stuff. Dior has that perfume scent too. What’s up with that? This shade looks really great on you though!
