Despite the fact that I probably have more than a lifetime supply of pink lippies, occasionally I still find myself without one on the go. I usually buy something from a discount store nearby my downtown work place if this happens. L'Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss Berry Chic was the latest "emergency pick-up" that was supposed to be a one day thing, but I ended up really liking it.
I had tried a few when the Le Gloss range first came out but found they were not really my thing. The colors seem all quite sheer and they feel maybe too slippery. I am not big on tube lip glosses anyway. They are very hydrating on lips without being tacky and ideal for layering to add shine and moisture, if that's what you look for from lip gloss.
However, this particular shade, Berry Chic is very pigmented and even staining, which is a pleasant surprise!
Berry Chic differs dramatically from the other Le Gloss shades I've tried that it makes me wonder if it is the kind of pigment used.
Maybe hot pink/magenta is more staining than others?

These three lip products are all quite long lasting and leave strong stains behind. Other colors I've experienced from the same ranges act differently, so there is my little hypothesis.
Sorry about those orange-y rims.
I remember I was wearing that drying Rimmel matte lipstick then applied Le Gloss Berry Chic later on to ease the pain.
Here is an overall look.
Besides the fact this lip gloss is probably quite old since it is an LE shade from many seasons ago, I am immensely enjoying this hot berry pink lip gloss. Hence this humdrum blog post, because we are supposed to blog about something we love, right? It just effortlessly brightens up my complexion providing comfort and a long lasting color on the lips. Plus it was like $2.
I am not complaining that L'Oreal Colour Riche Le Gloss Berry Chic is distinguished from other Le Gloss shades, but why do you suppose a certain color performs differently from other colors even though they are from the same range? Any thoughts?
