Here at the Candy HQ, we're all huge fans of red lipstick and we're always on the hunt for the perfect shade to suit and flatter all our skin tones. Which is why when we got the chance to try the latest Color Riche Collection Star Matte Reds by L'Oreal Makeup Designer, we knew we just had to share the great news with you! The collection comes in 8 different red shades that are suited for Asian skin tones! Plus, they're all so pigmented and don't dry your lips despite the finish being matte. Aside from the creamy texture and high color pay-off, another thing that won us over is the fact that they're super wearable for every day. 

Being a morena myself, I wanted to test just how true it is that all 8 shades flatter all Asian skin tones! I tried on all 8 and I'm happy to report that they all matched my skin tone perfectly! Don't believe the myth that tanned girls don't look great in a red lip. Go ahead and swipe on your favorite hue! Scroll down to see the different shades on the tube and on me as I tested them out for you to see just how great and versatile they are.

If you're a big fan of pink lipstick, this is the best shade to ease you into transitioning to reds. The red-pink hue is very feminine and will go well with a cat eye and light pink cheeks.

For a slightly deeper but subtle red, this shade is for you! This specific lippie is a favorite of Blake Lively and we totally understand why! It's got enough of a blue undertone to it that makes it stand out more, especially after swiping it on.

This shade is a little similar to the Pure Rouge shade except it's got more of a purple undertone, making it slightly darker and perfect for girls who aren't afraid to go deeper with their red pucker. Try on this shade during your next girls night out and pair with long, full lashes!
