Last month I shared L'Oreal's Color Riche Matte Lipstick in the shade Cliche' Mania and since then I've been trying out a new colour - Mon Jules (430). It reminds me a lot of Mac's Rebel as it's a similar deep berry shade, but L'Oreal's Color Riche Matte Lipsticks have a slightly thinner texture than Mac's Satin Lipstick formula. Although the Color Riche Lipsticks are matte they're a really fantastic matte formulation that's really comfortable on the lips and they don't feel dry or uncomfortable to wear. My favourite way to apply them is to smudge them into my lips for a sort of lip-stained look, I find that this helps them last really well and it also makes it a lot easier to wear more dramatic shades. When they're applied as a stain rather than a full-on lipstick you don't have to worry so much about your lipstick bleeding or transferring. But I do have to admit that if you can be bothered with all the effort of applying Mon Jules properly then you get a stunning final look.
Although Mon Jules would make a gorgeous lipstick shade for the autumn or winter months I do still think that it's highly wearable year round. Shades like this can be smudged out to make them more wearable or built-up to add drama, and this sort of berry shade is going to be incredibly flattering on a whole host of skintones. Personally, I'm smitten - I think that it's a lovely choice and I'm really happy that I have it in my collection.
