[one layer, three layers]Plum Rush is kinda disappointing for me. I wanted to expand my collection of dark lip colors, so I selected the deepest shade in the Colour Riche Le Gloss line, and was sorely disappointed when I swatched it. Plum Rush looks almost black in the tube. Sadly, this gloss is quite sheer - it gives a translucent, cool toned purple tint to the lips. A second layer adds a bit more depth. To get Plum Rush anywhere near the color it shows in the tube you need to apply a very thick, unwearable layer of gloss. Plum Rush is devoid of shimmer or glitter. d This Colour Riche Le Gloss has a very shiny, jelly like finish. On my naturally pink, pigmented lips, Plum Rush shows up as a lilac-y tint. In my opinion, this is more of a layering gloss than one to wear on it's own, unless you want very sheer color. L'Oreal's Plum Rush pairs nicely with Maybelline's Color Whisper Lipstick in Berry Ready
I have mixed feelings on L'Oreal's Colour Riche Le Gloss in Plum Rush. I like the formula of the gloss a lot - it wears well and is quite moisturizing. Color payoff is very light. For being so dark in the tube, I expected more depth and pigmentation from Plum Rush, though I like the color it provides is pretty we well. If you want a rich, nearly black gloss keep looking. I'll continue to use Plum Rush, but I wouldn't repurchase it or recommend it unless you like the color. I hope to try another Colour Riche Le Gloss in the future to see if the lack of opacity is a range-wide issue of if it's exclusive to Plum Rush.
