L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Balm Review

"Indulge your lips with Colour Riche® Balm. This tinted lip balm provides a hint of luscious, kissable colour, smoothing lips for a full 8 hours of continuous hydration. Lips are softer and more supple all day long—and keeps conditioning even after it’s been removed".

Shades from right to left:
plush plum (219), vineyard peach (176), ballet snow (171) & pink satin (118)

Overall rating: 7 1/2 / 10


These are definitely what the company says they are, a tinted lip balm. Nothing really struck out apart from the shades & the pigmentations on them. 
Lasting power is definitely NOT over 8 hours. That's just a bunch of nonsense right there. 
However, it does leave your lips feeling softer.

Warning: Do exfoliate your lips, these can get trapped in the cracked parts of your lips otherwise. 

I brought these products from OZSALE & DRUGSTORE.COM which is why the prices varies as both were AUS & US. I believed the full price for Australian retail price is around $20 but I haven't had any luck locating it online within Australia.
