The Karl Lagerfeld Loreal lipstick collection has dropped with six striking shades that will carry you into spring. Pucker up because we’re taking them for a spin!
Who doesn’t love an excuse to pick up a new lipstick? Especially when they’re somewhat of a tribute to the great Karl Lagerfeld?
Few people make their mark on the world quite as strongly as Karl Lagerfeld. He was truly a force to be reckoned with on the fashion scene as creative director of several French houses – most famously a long tenure at Chanel and Fendi. He also pioneered his own namesake fashion label, Karl Lagerfeld, who joined forces with Loreal to honor the legacy of this true icon with a collection of SIX lipsticks.
Karl Lagerfeld Loreal Lipstick Collection
I think it was around October of last year when the Karl Lagerfeld Loreal lipstick collection was first teased at Paris Fashion Week. Now, here we are four months later and the beautiful selection of six rock-inspired shades have launched exclusively at Ulta!
Around these parts we all love Loreal and their signature Colour Riche lipsticks in general are among the very best on the market. They’re soft and ultra creamy on the lips with fantastic color payoff. For the Karl Lagerfeld x Loreal Paris lipstick collection, the already famous lipsticks get a stylish upgrade with sleek black packaging and Karl’s signature as the perfect finishing touch.
Karl Lagerfeld x Loreal Paris Shades:
- Kontrasted: Deep plum
- Kultured: Soft dusty rose
- Kontemporary: Coral
- Ironik: Poppy fuscia
- Karismatic: Vibrant hot pink
- Provakative: Fiery red

Karl Lagerfeld x Loreal Paris Lipsticks ($13.99 each)
The four Karl Lagerfeld Loreal lipstick shades I got my eager hands on are Provakative, Ironik, Karismatic and Kultured.
Given how much we love Loreal around here (last year’s Infallible Fresh Wear foundation review continues to be a monthly favorite), I knew you guys would be just as excited as me to take a closer look at this exciting “Parisian” collaboration. I know how much we all love and miss Karl Lagerfeld as well and the collection is a nice way to pay tribute to someone who’s made an impression on all of our lives.
The full Karl Lagerfeld x Loreal Paris collection does also include a mascara and an eyeliner — but I was most excited about the lipsticks. They’re fun and come in a vibrant selection of shades that add a much needed dash of FLARE during these drab winter months. Anyone else feeling in need of a little color? Me too!
Below, I share with you a full rundown with everything you need to know about the Karl Lagerfeld Loreal lipstick collabatoration. Kisses!
Full Coverage with a Satin Finish
Same as the the traditional Colour Riche range, the Karl Lagerfeld Loreal lipsticks offer a beautiful satin finish and full coverage for the lips. If you blot down, the lipstick can also be adapted to be a semi-matte. Whatever you prefer!
Something I always love about Loreal’s lipsticks is how incredibly comfortable they are while providing moisture to the lips. The lipsticks are formulated with omega-3, argan oil and Vitamin E and are quite nourishing when worn. Particularly in the winter months, this is much much appreciated!!
Moderate to Strong Longevity
While the lipsticks don’t last as long as say a liquid lipstick or one with a matte finish, they do wear really nicely throughout the day! They’re not “bullet proof” per say, but as the color wears off it’s in a way that’s flattering and doesn’t get blotchy.
Not Transfer Resistant
Word of caution that I always like to offer with any satin lipstick, the product can transfer. So, be careful when eating or drinking so you don’t end up with a smear of lipstick here and there around your face. #NotCute

I really REALLY love the Karl Lagerfeld Loreal lipstick collection!
They live up to the quality we already know from the Colour Riche line but offer a stylish upgrade that I think Karl would really enjoy. Yes they’re priced at $3 more than your standard lipstick from Loreal, but to me these limited edition lipsticks are worth it. The colors are fantastic, the packaging update is stylish and the lipsticks are a great way to remember such a powerhouse icon.
