Today’s review is going to be of the L’Oréal Color Riche Shine Lipstick, they just came out and I first got one shade then I got two more.
I’ve heard great things about them but when I swatched them in the store something immediately caught my attention, they smelled EXACTLY like YSL Lipstick, which if you know them you’ll know they have a really specific and unique scent.
I have one of them the YSL Rouge Volupte Shine in 15 Corail Intuitive which is so similar to the shade High On Craze you are not going to believe it. The other shades I have are Only In Paris and Blow Your Glow
You can get them here for 13$
The packaging is a classic lipstick bullet and it’s so freaking PRETTY! It’s so chic and luxurious it feels high end.
I love that you can see the colour of the shade on the bottom.
The scent is identical to the YLS Lipsticks, it’s like mango maybe, it’s quite unique and very pleasant.
- High On Craze (245): Light coral, very pretty and out of my comfort zone, it will look amazing with a tan.
- Only In Paris (112): Light natural pink, I love this shade, I’ve been wearing it a lot. Perfect everyday shade if you like pinks.
- Blow Your Glow (659): Shimmery brown, I hate this shade, I haven’t noticed the glitters until I tried it on, it’s horrible on me, it looks like melted chocolate.
FORMULA & APPLICATION
The formula is very creamy and it glides on really easily, it’s almost too creamy that it can melt if you are not careful. The finish is quite glossy and shiny.
They feel really hydrating and the three shades I have all performed the same. They are a little bit streaky so I like to blend them in with my finger, which I feel like it makes them melt into the lips.
This lipstick lasts for 2 hours on me (without eating), since they are so shiny I wasn’t expecting an incredible lasting time, but you can really them really easily.
High On Craze (245):
Only In Paris (112):
Blow Your Glow (659):
The YSL Rouge Volupte Shine formula is ABSOLUTELY IDENTICAL, I can’t believe it! The shades are slightly different though. On myself, I like the YLS one better since is pinker.
But other than that: how it feels, the scent, the lasting power and the fact that they are own by the SAME COMPANY, I think is safe to say they are the same product.
These are the two formulas side by side:
TRIMETHYL PENTAPHENYL TRISILOXANE, HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE, DIPHENYLSILOXY PHENYL TRIMETHICONE, PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAISOSTEARATE, DIPENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAHYDROXYSTEARATE/TETRAISOSTEARATE, BIS-BEHENYL/ISOSTEARYL/PHYTOSTERYL DIMER DILINOLEYL DIMER DILINOLEATE, POLYETHYLENE, ISOHEXADECANE, SYNTHETIC FLUORPHLOGOPITE, OZOKERITE, HDI/TRIMETHYLOL HEXYLLACTONE CROSSPOLYMER, ALUMINA, PARFUM / FRAGRANCE, MAGNESIUM SILICATE, CALCIUM SODIUM BOROSILICATE, SILICA, CALCIUM ALUMINUM BOROSILICATE, ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE, COLOPHONIUM / ROSIN / COLOPHANE ,TIN OXIDE, TOCOPHEROL
DIISOSTEARYL MALATE HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE PHENYL TRIMETHICONE SYNTHETIC WAX C12-15 ALKYL BENZOATE CETYL DIMETHICONE OCTYLDODECANOL DIISOPROPYL DIMER DILINOLEATE PHYTOSTERYL MACADAMIATE PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAETHYLHEXANOATE EUPHORBIA CERIFERA / CANDELILLA WAX EXTRACT POLYETHYLENE PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRAISOSTEARATE POLYGLYCERYL-2 ISOSTEARATE PARAFFIN CERA MICROCRISTALLINA / MICROCRYSTALLINE WAX HEXADECENE CALCIUM ALUMINUM BOROSILICATE CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE ALUMINA CALCIUM SODIUM BOROSILICATE TOCOPHERYL ACETATE PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE ETHYLHEXYL PALMITATE SYNTHETIC FLUORPHLOGOPITE MAGNESIUM SILICATE ALUMINUM HYDROXIDE SILICA TIN OXIDE PUNICA GRANATUM EXTRACT SILICA DIMETHYL SILYLATE BUTYLENE GLYCOL TOCOPHEROL CAPRYLYL GLYCOL PHENOXYETHANOL SODIUM HYALURONATE BHT HEXYLENE GLYCOL PARFUM / FRAGRANCE
I don’t understand enough about formulas to tell you if there’s any difference but I’ve highlighted the ingredients that are in both. Just based on the lipsticks I can tell you they are identical to me so if you like the formula and want to save 20+ $ go with L’Oréal If you want to treat yourself the one YLS is still an amazing product.

GRADE: A –
I love these lipsticks, I like the formula since is so creamy and shiny, I like the packaging, they are comfortable and balmy, perfect for everyday wear, the pink one has been in my purse since I got it. The brown shade is horrible on me so I’ll have to gift it to someone, I’d never use it. The orange one is going to be perfect with a tan. The lasting power is great for a sheer lipstick and overall I’m very happy with them.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
