L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Pinks Lipstick: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
In addition to six gorgeous nail colors, the new L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Pinks Collection introduces six beautiful pink lipsticks ($11 CAD each) created in collaboration with the brand's celebrity ambassadors. These shades will join the permanent Color Riche collection and I have swatches of them all for you today. To check them out, click.......
L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Pinks Lipsticks
Packaging:
The Collection Exclusive Lipsticks come in gorgeous matte black lipsticks with shiny gold accents. Each ambassador's autograph is embossed in gold on the outside of the tube and the lipsticks have a pointed tip for a precise application.

Formulation:
The L'Oreal Collection Exclusive Pinks lipstick features a surprisingly sheer formulation. All the shades are buildable but from the looks of the colors in the packaging, I assumed that at least the deeper shades would be quite opaque. All the color have a subtle pearly shimmer, which is not great news if you tend to get dry lips as the shimmers will accentuate any dry patches. The colors have a satiny finish; the formulation isn't drying but it's also not very hydrating. However, because the lipsticks cling well to the lips, you get a better wear. Finally, the formulation has a slight waxy scent (or what I call the "old-school lipstick scent").

Blake's Pink: Bright coral.
Doutzen's Pink: Bold cool-tone pink.
Eva's Pink: Rosy pink nude.
Jennifer's Pink: This one looks really dark in the tube, almost like a wine-red but it actually swatches as a much lighter cool-tone berry pink.
Julianne's Pink: Appears as a pale pink in the tube but swatches as a soft pink with a strong golden sheen. I thought this shade would wash out my lips quite a bit but it's actually fairly flattering.
Liya's Pink: Bright pinky red.
