L'Oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick reviews

I got excited when I heard about L'Oreal Colour Riche Shine Lipsticks although I haven't bought many drugstore lippies lately.

The new Shine Lipstick range seemed like an amplified version of the Balm range and the lipstick case looked sturdy and even pretty. I had to try a few for myself.

But, my idea of adding dimensions to the face is more about luminosity and for that, I have almost entirely relied on highlighters. I paid very little attention to shading products or bronzers. I did not own a real concealer nor did I know that many people use concealers to contour, not necessarily to cover up blemishes.
