The L'Oreal promotional display at Target
Next to the permanent Colour Riche balms are the limited edition shades
left to right: ballet show (171), dragon fruit (172), lilac sweetness (174), and vineyard peach (176)
Since there were no swatches online, I couldn't tell which one I wanted. There are the four limited edition shades for funnnnn.
L'Oreal Colour Riche balms Pop in Lilac Sweetness, Dragon Fruit, Ballet Show, and Vineyard Peach, $5.99
Besides the Pop addition, all size and packaging remains the same as the permanent line.
Couple of swipes of each shade.
left to right: Lilac Sweetness, Dragon Fruit, Ballet Show, and Vineyard Peach
Lilac Sweetness is a plummy winy shade
Dragon Fruit is a bright watermelon red/pink
Ballet Show is a fuchsia warm tone pink
Vineyard Peach is a deep coral
All shades are shiny in texture (not matte), but do not possess any shimmer or glitter.

Off the bat, these shades definitely look a lot more pigmented than the permanent line. I find that they show up a lot better on my lips and do "pop."
They contain the L'Oreal lipstick scent when you first apply them on your lips, but it goes away quickly.
Update: I have tried on several of these balms and they are not drying or moisturizing. They last about 3 hours on my lips if I don't eat or drink anything. There is a slight fruity scent as well as a lipstick scent but neither stay for long. If you just smell the tube, you can catch the fruit scent more.
Have you spotted these? What are your thoughts on bolder Colour Riche balms?
