My Review of L’Oreal Gold Obsession Lipsticks:
Packaging – Gold Obsession Lipsticks comes in a gold and black ombre packaging with a shade indicator in the front with the name of the L’Oréal brand ambassadors for individual lip colors. The shade name and number is written at the bottom. The cap has the click lock system and the twist up functionality. Overall, the lipsticks are gorgeously packaged and well designed for travelling.
Shades in details – Every lipstick shade has fine golden shimmer in it but you won’t be able to see them in pictures. The gold shimmer merely gives a touch of glossiness and highlighting effect on the lips. These lipstick will not look metallic at all, except for the shade G101 Le Gold.
1. L’Oreal Paris Le Gold Lipstick:
This is a pure gold color with gold shimmers. My first impression with this lipstick was clueless as I had no idea how to incorporate it. The moment I started using this as a top coat, I couldn’t stop using it. For the lip swatches I have applied this in three ways. Firstly, I applied the RB602 Scarlet Gold and then applied Le Gold on the center of upper and lower lips. For the second swatch, I applied the shade P601 Rose Gold by lightly patting it and applied a light layer of Le Gold all over the lips. This gave me a wonderful rosy-pink gold lips. For the last look, I applied a clear lip gloss and using a brush, I applied the Le Gold lipstick on the center of upper and lower lips. Overall, I am in love with this gold lipstick from loreal paris.
2. L’Oreal Gold Obsession Coral Gold Lipstick:
This a beautiful mixture of coral and orange but nothing neon. In the bullet, it looks pretty neon but in person, it is a great wearable color for fair to medium Indian skin tones.
3. L’Oreal Paris Rose Gold Lipstick:
This is a very beautiful fuchsia toned pink shade. The color is not subtle but nothing too loud as well. So, you can wear it as you wish. It is a great option for fair to medium Indian skin tones.
4. L’Oreal Bold in Gold Rouge Gold Lipstick:
This is Aishwariya’s red and it is a pretty orangish red. This is the ‘safest’ red for warm Indian skin tones and you will never go wrong with this red lipstick. The shade reminds me a lot of the MAC Lady Danger, but with different formula. This will go for every Indian skin tone.
5. L’Oreal Gold Obsession Scarlet Gold Lipstick:
This is a deeper red with neutral tone. It has this bright tomato color and would be a perfect bridal lipstick color. Again, this red lipstick from loreal paris is great for every Indian skin tone.
6. L’Oreal Paris Mocha Gold Lipstick:
This is a beautiful mixture of deep warm brown with burgundy undertones. The color from the loreal gold obsession collection is a ‘love at first sight’ and perfect ‘fall’ kind of shade. It leans on the deeper side and would complement medium to deep Indian skin tones like anything. Even fair Indian skin tones can rock this kind of color with subtle eye makeup.
7. L’Oreal GL’s Plum Gold Lipstick:
It is beautiful true deep grape color. This is my favorite lipstick from the bold in gold collection from loreal paris and I simply couldn’t wait to try this out. It will suit every Indian skin tone, ranging from fair to deep and looks absolutely stunning.
Pigmentation – The pigmentation of the loreal gold obsession lipsticks is wonderful. The deeper shades like Mocha Gold, Plum Gold and Scarlet Gold are insanely pigmented and a single swipe deposits rich amount of color to the lips. Shades like Rose Gold, Coral Gold and Rouge Gold are opaque with double layer. The shade Le Gold is best applied with a lip brush as it tends to be slightly uneven due to the rich amount of golden shimmer when applied directly from the tube. All in all, the pigmentation of the gold color riche lip colors is admirable.

Texture and Finish – The texture of the loreal star collection lipsticks is creamy, soft and smooth. It literally glides on the lips like butter an feels hydrating all day long. It is enriched with the goodness of jojoba oil and other emollients to give a rich and moisturized feel to the lips. As I have mentioned earlier every gold obsession loreal lipstick has golden shimmer in it, but they never feel gritty or uneasy at all.
The texture is gel glossy with a wet look on the lips. The finish is well balanced between creamy and glossy and gives a beautiful plump lip look to the lips. The shimmers are illuminating and when light falls on them, it gives a highlighting effect. Try Le Gold on your cheekbones.
Formula – The formula of the loreal paris lipsticks is good. They feel comfortable to wear and don’t bleed or feather at all even when they have a glossy touch to them. The gold lipstick colors can be easily worn alone and you may skip the lip liner when you are in a hurry. Being creamy and glossy, they have a tendency to transfer a lot onto cups and spoons which is one thing I despise. If you would blot it with a tissue, the color slightly fades. Some colors like Plum Gold an Rose Gold have a tendency to stain your lips but this doesn’t stand true for other colors.
Staying power – The staying power of the new loreal gold collection lipsticks is good for a glossy lip color. They stay on my lips for around 3-3.5hrs and leave behind a fresh tint of color to the lips. Also, when the lipstick is completely removed by the end of the day, it leaves behind minute particles of golden shimmer. You can apply a lip liner underneath to make the color long lasting for any special occasion. The pricing is slightly on the heavier side but the lipsticks are totally worth it.
