REVIEW | L'oreal Color Riche Collection Privee Lipsticks

As I was repurchasing my holy grail foundation, L'oreal Lumi Magique, on Sunday, I came across their new(ish) range, the L'oreal Color Riche Collection Privee lipsticks and immediately fell in love with both Cheryl and Julianne's nude shades..
The limited edition range is basically so that any woman can find their perfect nude shade, with there being the perfect lipstick for each skin colour, hair colour etc and have used iconic females, such as Eva Longoria and Cheryl Cole to promote them. I think this is such a great idea as I think the UK drugstore is definitely lacking in the subtle and easy to match too, nude lip shades.
 I immediately fell in love with Cheryl's shade, which is 'Barely Greige', and this is the colour that suits me the best. It is the ultimate 'your lips but better' shade, offering a subtle pinky brown sheen to the lips. I also really liked Julianne's shade, and even though I am not as pale as her, I can't get enough pinky nude lipsticks so it was basially necessary that I purchased this one aswell.. Julianne's shade 'Barely Peach' is a peachy pink, very cute and girly and I would probably say is the perfect nude for people with light hair. 
I have heard whispers that the scent has really put people off wearing them, but as I'm actually sat here sniffing them to see what people are meaning, I don't really find it that offensive? It definitely has the 'grandma' scent to it, but as long as it's not stale wee, I'm good to go..! It has a talcom powder like smell, but scents of products don't particularly bother me really, although if you are sensitive to medium-strong scented products, I would probably give these a miss.

The lipsticks from this range that I have tried are sheer, basically the exact opposite to a cremesheen by Mac for example, although in my opinion, this makes them even better as I can wear them everyday without feeling too overdone and can easily apply them without a mirror, win. They are at the pricey end of the drugstore scale at £8.19, but currently in Boots they have a 'buy 1 get 1 half price' deal on all L'oreal products, the perfect excuse to try these bad boys out.

L'oreal have really been impressing me lately and I can't wait to try more of their products out - what are you're current L'oreal favourites?
