L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Balm Review

My thoughts on the Color Riche Balm
Hey guys!

I hope you are having an awesome week! For today's blog I wanted to write a quick review on the L'Oreal Color Riche Lip Balm. 

I have the color 518 Tender Mauve. I purchased mine from CVS, but you can also find it here: Loreal Color Riche Balm

Let me start by saying that I love this color. It is one of those "my lips but better" kind of color. It is a very sheer dusty rose, pink color and it has a tiny bit of rainbow shimmer in it. Nothing too crazy, it just gives a nice shine.
I initially thought this was a lipstick, because all the L'Oreal lip products look the same. But it is a balm.On the L'Oreal Paris website it claims that this lip product will "provide a hint of luscious, kissable color, smoothing lips instantly and for a fill 8 hours of continuous hydration. Lips are softer and more supple all day long, and keeps conditioning even after it's been removed."

Okay, so now this is supposed to be super hydrating. It's not. This I have to say is one of the worst lip balm products I have ever tried. 

This product made my lips extremely dry, like, drier than they were before I applied it. My lips are the driest they have been this whole winter. My lips are so chapped that the skin is coming off, yeah I know, gross.

The product also comes off super fast. After about 15-20 minutes of wearing it, it's gone. I don't know where it goes, but it's gone. 

This review makes me sad, because I really love the color. 
I would give this product a 1.5 out of 5 based on the claims of hydration.

Now, based on the color alone it's about a 4 out of 5.

If you guys have tried these lip products out or have tried super amazing drugstore lip balms let me know!
