First look: L'Oreal Color Riche Balm in 818 Nourishing Nude

Psssst: if you haven't heard yet, L'Oreal is coming out with a line of tinted lip balms called Balm that seem to be very much like the Revlon Lip Butters with the same type of tinted, translucent lids that match the color of each balm. 

A HUGE thank to my pal @rnsmithny on Twitter for sending a pic of the one she just purchased at her local Bed Bath and Beyond (again, to see if your BB&B sells makeup, click here):

I hope to have permission soon from another reader who shared with me a pic of several other shades (there seems to be a rather large shade range) and if/when I get permission, I'll share that pic as well.

According to Mary at Beauty & Soul, there might be a Clinique Black Honey dupe in this range as well. Exciting!

Another huge thanks to @rnsmithny for the great pic!

Have you spotted L'Oreal Color Riche Balms in your area yet?


  1. Noooo. My wallet screams in agony. I want these! Too bad none of the Bed Bath & Beyonds near me have a Harmons inside. =/

  2. I am sure there will be plenty of companies trying to come out with similar products since the Revlon Lip butters were such a success! It will be exciting to see which ones are better :)

  3. ooh! maybe these will be actually come out in Canada *crosses fingers*

  4. I actually like L'oreal cosmetics over Revlon, so I'm excited for this to be released.

  5. Oh I cant wait to see swatches and reviews! I dont like the scent of Loreall lipsticks so hopefully they will have a different scent

  6. If I see these, I'll definitely be picking one up for review. I'm curious how they'll compare to Revlon's.
