L’oreal Color Riche #GoldObsession Lipstick Review

Crazy over the metallic lip trend that took the runways of Paris Fashion Week by storm? L’oreal MakeUp Designer/Paris brings Color Riche Gold Obsession – an opulent collection of lipsticks infused with real 24-karat gold on a tube of lipstick that will make you feel instantly confident and sophisticated.

Let’s bid adieu to mattes and welcome metallic lips for a bold twist on our usual look…

Color Riche Gold Obsession with real 24-karat gold, comes in four sophisticated shades that gives a metallic sheen and subtle dimension on the lips – pure gold, mocha brown, rose pink, and classic red that complements Filipina skin tones.

The lipstick is housed in a black tube the same as the other Loreal lipsticks but with a golden gradient effect on the cover making it look more posh.

Color Riche Gold Obsession Lipstick Shades

Color Riche Gold Obsession in Le Gold – pure gold shade. Wear this in two ways – all out gold like a regular lipstick or on top of another lipstick shade as highlighter to create subtle dimension.

Color Riche Gold Obsession in Rose Gold – coll pink shade with the hint of gold perfect for fair skin tones.

Color Riche Gold Obsession has this creamy texture that glides like butter on the lips. Pigmentation is great even with just one swipe except for the red shade which is hard to build. You need to swipe twice or thrice for a vivid color pay-off.

What I Love:

  1. The metallic sheen gives a more sophisticated look and dimension on my lips.
  2. Gives a good color pay-off with 1-2 swipes especially the mocha brown
  3. Doesn’t dry out my lips
  4. Formula is lightweight and heavy on my lips.
  5. The Le Gold can be worn on its own.
  6. Staying formula is great even after meal. But, retouch is needed for a fuller pout.
  7. Price is affordable.
  8. You can mix and match the shades of lippies and create a whole different look once topped with Le Gold.
  9. There’s no weird scent.


  1. Leaves a stain on the lips even after I used my trusted lip makeup remover

I highly recommend these shades to all Filipinas who would love to experiment and join the metallic lip trend bandwagon. You don’t have to a supermodel to don these lippies with 24-karat gold as these shades are all wearable. So even you’ll just do grocery shopping in the mall, have lunch date with your friend or fetch your daughter in school, you can swipe this on your lips and feel beautiful. Always remember confidence is the key. So be bold and go for the 24-karat gold!
