L'Oreal Color Riche Balm

Plush Plum, Caring Coral

These have been well reviewed by many of my friends , now I'm finally getting to them. We all know I LOVE tinted balms and I've been thrilled that every brand seems to be coming out with them this season.   Well, the new L'Oreal Color Riche ones are not proving to be the exception. I am loving them as well.

They mainly go on very sheer with just a hint of tint. The one deeper shade I have- Plush Plum leaves more tint than the lighter ones , so  if you want more pigment  go for the darker ones. Plush Plum leaves just enough of a tint that it looks great on it's own but also layers well with my rather large collection of plum lippies.

Caring Coral  is a sheer peach that warms up the lips just a little. It's very pretty and good for a barely there look or layering. This one especially will be fab for summer. It can go to the pool or beach  with it's SPF and look just enough.

I think these have really good moisture.  I can wear one on it's own and head out into the cold and it's fine for hours. Which brings us to another good thing about the Color Riche Balms - they seem to last long for a balm.  No, they are not long wear but the Plush Plum, by virtue of it's deeper color I guess, stayed put for a couple hours. That's quite good for a tinted balm.

Ingredients include shea butter, argan oil, rose canina oil and vitamin E. They have SPF 15 , have little scent ( L'Oreal says there is a vanilla scent, I get just a hint of that ) and come in 8 shades.

 Have you tried these yet? My local Target was cleaned out of them this week so they seem to be popular and I can see why.
