L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Gold Dust - Sexy In Sequins and Hidden Gems

Being the texture obsessed blogger that I am, when I came across the L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Gold Dust collection in my local Target, I had to pick up a few. They had a lot of metallic looking shades, but the two that caught my eye were both dark bases with glints of color. I purchased Sexy In Sequins and Hidden Gems.

Sexy In Sequins is a darkened base with a purple tint. There are little pops of sparkle in green and gold. It also has larger glitter pieces in it, which were visible but not as prominent as the larger glitters in Hidden Gems. It applied well and covered easily in two coats. The brush is a little moppy when it gets the texture polish on it, so make sure you wipe it off a bit to avoid making a mess during application.

Hidden Gems is a blackened base with teal sparkle. This one has large silver glitters in it that show up nicely as the polish dries down. They are a really wonderful addition to what would have otherwise been a simple polish, and bring a lot of interest to the final effect. I used two coats here.

Overall, I had no issues with these textured shades. The texture felt nice to me; it wasn't too rough but still had that unmistakable textured finish. They applied well, had good opacity, and didn't take too long to dry.

I found these at Target, but they should also available at drugstores and locations that sell L'Oreal products (like Bed, Bath, and Beyonds with beauty sections).


  1. These are gorgeous! I don't normally go for textured polishes but I love these two! I think sexy in sequins is my favourite! :)

  2. So pretty! Love texture polishes too :)

  3. I randomly bought the light purple one (can't remember the name) a few weeks ago and it's my new favorite. I ended up going back and buying both of the colors you listed above! I found it at Walgreens and, best of all, they're having a BOGO 50% right now.

  4. I passed these over the other day, because I'm still a little iffy on textured polishes, but I may have to go back and get some. I really love the finish on these!

  5. I got mine at HEB around Christmas! I got these two plus the gold one (GORGEOUS), the teal one and a black one (I don't remember the names). I got some of them for my friends too!!

  6. Those are the same two colors I picked a while back! Sexy In Sequins is even better in person. I was so disappointed with Hidden Gems. It looks like an amazing duo chrome in the bottle. On the finger, it looks like a murky mess :(

  7. These both look gorgeous, I love the texture paired with the little silver glitters! The purple tint of Sexy in Sequins is amazing :)

  8. *droooool* SOOO gorgeous!
