Simply Lippy Challenge Day 174 | L’Oreal Lip Paint Matte in Shade 203, Tangerine Vertigo

You may recall me writing about these new L’Oreal lip paints previously throughout my challenge as I’ve worn two shades from the matte range that was released earlier in the year.

Of the two shades I tried, the first Hollywood Beige, was a gorgeous peach toned nude which I liked, and the second, King Pink, was a super bright pink shade which I wasn’t too sure about (mainly because that kind of pink isn’t really my thing).

However, what I absolutely loved about these was the creamy, velvety formula that really was so lovely to wear and kept my lips incredibly moisturised throughout the day.

The finish is a soft matte without being drying at all; the consistency is smooth, the pigment is great, and the staying power is pretty great too! So there’s a lot of positives when it comes to these lippies that’s for sure.

Today unfortunately though, I once again wasn’t a big fan of the shade. From both the name and the colour of the packaging, I was expecting this to be a rich orange-red shade, something similar to one of my favourites, Lady Danger, but it just wasn’t.

It was bold, but the orange shade was a very cool toned orange and just felt a bit ‘meh’ to me. There was nothing rich about it and it just felt very flat and non-descript. As with the pink shade I tried, there was nothing wrong with the shade per se, I just didn’t really like it.

I tend to go for warmer tones as I’m sure many of you know so maybe that’s why o didn’t like this so much, but regardless, the formula is lovely so this shade won’t stop me from trying out another colour soon!

What do you prefer when it comes to lipstick? Summer is a great time for warm shades, but do you prefer cool tones? Let me know by commenting below!
