Loreal Color Riche Le Gloss in Violet Attitude: Swatches & Review

My Makeup Mantra for this sweltering summer season- Lipsticks out. Glosses In. There is just one teeny problem with that mantra- My dresser is like the Bermuda’s Triangle for Lipglosses!! Im serious- once they enter that territory, its just a kiss of death…they vanish from the earth and can never be found in that mass of makeup anywhere. So when i was randomly rummaging through my drawers (one of my favourite random things to do when left home alone on a weekend) i chanced upon this Loreal Color Riche Le Gloss and i said “Hayyyyyy you! I forgot you existed”

I guess that wasn’t a very nice thing to say to it- that it was kind of forgettable, so its been sitting there giving me a bad  violet attitude all day long !!!

The Shade- Violet Attitude

Violet attitude is like a mid-tone fuschia pink with silver micro-shimmer.  The shimmer looks more obvious in the swatch but on the lips its pretty much unnoticeable. Its a color which looks really vibrant and bright while swatched, but because of the semi sheer nature of the gloss it settles into a much more muted, sort of sheer watch of plum pink on the lips-a color that is universally flattering.

The Texture- Loreal Color Riche Le Gloss

Couple of quick things. Firstly these are definitely quite sheer once you apply on the lips and after a while you only see a very faint hint of color along with gloss remaining . Secondly, these are very moisturizing-i will put them up there as definitely one of the most moisturizing glosses iv tested out so they make your lips very soft and supple. Thirdly, these are non sticky and inspite of that they do last for 3-4 hours but like i said before- the gloss lasts , the color doesn’t  I guess i feel a bit annoyed because the print advertisement of these glosses features a girl wearing a bright, electric fuchsia pink that’s full coverage and they seem full coverage in the tube as well so its a bit of a let down that they are weak in the pigment department. Lastly– i need a wand with my glosses, i just find these squeezy tubes very messy and inconvenient to work with.





Verdict: B

Price: Rs 550/-

Recommendation: Loreal Color Riche Le Gloss in Violet Attitude is a semi sheer, mid tone fuschia pink with silver shimmer. These glosses are quite sheer, so you only get a very faint hint of color on the lips . If you are ok with the  sheer pigment, you may want to check these out because they are very moisturizing and make your lips soft and supple. I however, would pick the Revlon Colorburst in the same price bracket as compared to this- i need more pigment, and i definitely need a gloss with a wand. Plus this feels kind of gloopy!

The shade looks pretty in the hand swatch. In this hot weather I stay away from lip glosses though, I feel it makes my lips burn in the sun.

doesnt it look like mall madness from MAC ?


mehak May 4, 2013 at 1:39 pm

Yeah it does actually, except mall madness is more pigmented, on the lips this is very sherr


Ritika May 4, 2013 at 1:22 pm

mehak May 4, 2013 at 1:56 pm

Thanks ritika!


Xuvious May 4, 2013 at 1:25 pm

I like the colour but like you said, the tube glosses are ones I wear the least. Just so difficult to deal with!


Shikha May 4, 2013 at 3:22 pm

Heena May 4, 2013 at 10:14 pm

The only thing I hate about lip glosses are they are sticky. Its rare to find a gloss that doesn’t make my hair stick to my lips ! So yey to that.. but I would prefer my revlon Colorburst lip glosses any day ! Specially ~papaya <3


Karishma May 4, 2013 at 10:27 pm

Well I don’t know how it happened but I have been using lipsticks way more than glosses since like an year.
Nice shade.


gargi May 4, 2013 at 10:33 pm

it looks okayish


Richa Saxena May 4, 2013 at 11:09 pm

The color looks so pigmented in the tube but is quite sheer…Agreed the Revlon colorbursts maybe a better choice between the two..Great Review :)


Gowthami May 4, 2013 at 11:26 pm

i love so fuschia pinkkkk :P


Vipra S May 5, 2013 at 3:09 pm

I too hold the same shade… same pinch mehak ;) :D


Abhi May 5, 2013 at 4:22 pm

I am yet to find a lip gloss that looks the same on me and the model atleast coverage wise…
they are all expensive…and it seems like a rip off to me each time…
the models are always wearing some base lipstick and then the gloss over….I think the ads should specifically mention that..
but those bright glossy cute tubes and those superb pouts in the ads….I just cant resist…I have my sizable collection and am still adding to it…sighhh!! if only I would learn from my mistakes :)

What I love the most about this product is that it is not greasy at all compared to other gloss. It adds the right amount of shimmer, which is really nice for the Summer and of course the colors are pretty!


thevowsandbeyond May 5, 2013 at 6:50 pm

I love glosses, but I hate the fact that they wear off so soon :( Nothing like the ads!


ID May 5, 2013 at 7:12 pm

crushforcoral May 5, 2013 at 11:32 pm

It looks similar to Mall Madness from MAC archies girl collection.


Bhumika May 6, 2013 at 3:19 am

ya quite sheer..but love the shade though..


Shang J. May 6, 2013 at 4:08 am

The colour looks beautiful for you. However for me this gloss has all what I do not want in a gloss, shimmer, sheerness and tube application. x


Neeraj May 8, 2013 at 7:36 pm

I am getting this for sure….what a color and the same plush effect that I always look for…fantastic review.


Anupama May 28, 2013 at 7:54 am

i would rather stay away from glosses in this humid weather
Nice review Mehak


Heena June 15, 2014 at 5:15 pm
