#LorealParis #BoldinGold Lipstick Collection – Review & Swatches

I posted a curtain raiser on the just launched L’oreal Paris Bold in Gold Makeup Collection yesterday in the blog – click here for details.

I am sharing the lipstick swatches and reviews of the 7 lipsticks in this collection today.


The lipsticks come in a black & gold packaging and some of the shades are selected by international celebrities themselves!

These lipsticks are unique and special in a way, since these are bright and have a metallic finish, owing to the 24k gold infusion in each of these shades.

One can spot the shades easily with the small window in the lipstick base, same as the color of the actual lipstick.

Without much ado, let’s head to the swatches and my thoughts on these lipsticks.

Shades available in the #BoldinGold collection –

  • Coral Gold
  • Scarlet Gold
  • Le Gold
  • Mocha Gold
  • Plum Gold
  • Rouge Gold
  • Rose Gold

PRICE – INR 1025

Loads of swatches, true to the actual shades for you –

Now coming to my take on these lipsticks, I love how creamy they felt when I swatched them first. They just glided like butter and I was quite wary as to not break the bullet.

In close look, one can find fine golden shimmer in all of the shades, that translates to a nice metallic sheen on the lips. It doesn’t look over-the-top on the lips at all and you can take my word for this – coming from someone who hates anything shimmer in my makeup and loves everything matte.

I am not someone who is into metallic lips again, but simply love the shade range this collection has to offer – where most metallic lips trend are all about browns, grays and nudes! How about a coral, pink or red metallic – bring it on baby! Perfect for our Indian weddings and parties!

One swipe and these lipsticks have a good punch of pigmentation and two swipes is all I need to get desired intensity on my lips.

The staying power is a little low 2-3 hrs on my lips, because of the metallic sheen, post which it lives a mild tint on the lips. Some shades leave tiny specks of golden shimmer behind and some don’t when they fade.

Also this collection has Le Gold, a true golden lipstick – first of its kind in the Indian beauty market, which is great for mix and match or ombre lips. I think I am gonna try it as a highlighter and eyeshadow as well 😀

If you are still wondering if these are going to be too shiny, glossy, frosty or shimmery – worry not! These are perfect for our Indian skin tones. Suitable for dry lips too and great for parties!

I am particularly in love with the shades – Rose Gold, Mocha Gold & Plum Gold.

Available already at Nykaa. Which shades are you picking?
