New (ish) from L'Oreal: Made for Me Pinks

Earlier this summer, L'Oreal came out with their new Color Riche lipsticks calling them the "Made for Me Pink" range.  Basically, they have a few pink colors that are made for light, medium and dark skintones.  For fair skin, they have two color options.  There's "I Pink You're Cute" which is the brighter of the two shades and the second is the one I purchased called "Ballerina Shoes."  

When I chose this one as opposed it's brighter companion I was thinking oh, it's more versatile and every day than a brighter shade would be.  When I put it on, I was a little disappointed at how frosty it seemed to look.  I love the Color Riche line in general and the formula of the lipstick is really nice...but it just looks a little 90's/early 2000's.  Which, I know, to my dismay is "in" right now but I just can't bring myself to bring back frosty lips, overalls and mini backpacks. 

I'll keep this one around and maybe use it over the top of a brighter lipstick to tone it down, but I don't know if I'll be wearing it very much on it's own.  I will say that all the other colors in the range look really pretty and I might just have to pick up "I Pink You're Cute" because I do love the formula...this is just a bit of a dud unfortunately. 

Have you tried any of these new colors?  Which ones do you like?


Thank you for the comment! I really appreciate it :)
