L'Oreal Colour Riche Project Runway: The Temptress' Kiss & The Queen's Kiss

10:35 AM

I hate to say it, but I am pretty disappointed in these lipsticks.  And it really has nothing to do with the texture.  After being excited to finally find the collection, I ended up feeling underwhelmed after trying them.

The Temptress' Kiss: dark plum
The Queen's Might: medium reddish pink

I was not a fan of the shades, especially The Temptress' Kiss.  It was a bit too dark and had too much brown.  Not exactly the shade I would pick out for a temptress.  It looks darker in person than in the pictures.  Again, sorry for the blurry pictures.  Hopefully in the near future I can get a better camera.

Pigment, Texture and Finish
The pigment is amazing.  One swipe and you have full coverage.  The texture is also great.  They feel very smooth, creamy and even moisturizing.The finish of these lipsticks is what made them a no go for me.  They have an almost frosty look to them, which I cannot stand.  Another factor I am not a fan of is that this lipsticks highlight the tiny lines on my lips.

Staying Power and Packaging
 The staying power was good.  I got 6-7 hours of wear out of these lippies, which I was impressed by.  I did not expect them to last that long.  The packaging is simple and sturdy.  It is plain black with the Project Runway Logo on it.

Overall Impression
Not a fan.  The pigment is nice, but the shimmer and the way the shades look on me was a turn off.  Of course that is just personal preference.  Quality wise, the lipsticks are not bad at all.  The are smooth and nicely pigmented.  However, if you have a lot of lines on your lips, settling is a definite possibility.
