Company’s Description

The first choice in luxury lipcolor, Colour Riche is deep, luminous color in a weightless, creamy texture. Dewy, botanical formulations moisturize, condition, and last for hours without flaking or splitting.

L’Oreal’s Project Runway The Electric Fantasie Collection launched this month in drugstores. The collection includes four (4) shades of L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Lipcolour lipsticks. This review is for the shade The Mystic’s Kiss–a red-violet shade with orchid shimmer.

For images and swatches of all of the Colour Riche Lipcolour lipsticks in this collection, please see this post.


Packaging: 9/10

L’Oreal’s Project Runway lipsticks come in plastic, black, rounded-square tubes with the Project Runway logo on the side.

Quality: 9.75/10

The Mystic’s Kiss is a semi-translucent red-violet with tiny, orchid shimmer particles. It has a beautifully glossy finish and looks multi-dimensional because of the contrast of the more pink base and purple shimmer particles.

The formula is slightly creamy and glides onto the skin well with even color. The lipstick brings a little moisture to the lips and feels smooth.

The lipstick is not transfer-resistant, but does last on the lips two (2) to three (3) hours before needing touch-ups.

My only criticism of this lipstick is the scent. It has an old smell to it and reminds me of what my Grandmother’s lipsticks used to smell like.

Ease of Use: 9.5/10

The lipstick pulls just a little at the skin but otherwise applies evenly. This is a bold shade, so apply carefully around the edges of the lips.

Price: 9/10

For around $7.00 you get 0.13 ounces (3.6 grams) of lipstick. This is an average amount of product and price point for a drugstore lipstick.
