L’Oreal Extraordinaire by Colour Riche ($9.99) is a new liquid lip color available in 16 different shades. The unique formula of this lippie contains five micro-oils to create that perfect lip. It’s supposed to “resurface and smooth lips like a balm, provides color impact of a lipstick, and gives a varnished 3-d shine effect of a gloss”.
When I first came across these in the store, I was confused by the packaging. It looked like a lipstick to me so I kept trying to pull off the cap like a dummy. After a few minutes I realized they were glosses and that the lids twisted off. Duh! I bet I looked pretty silly trying and trying to open it, lol.
The applicator is the soft doe foot type. This lip color applies just like a lip gloss. It has a silky smooth texture with a very glossy finish. The gloss has a nice amount of pigmentation. It’s not quite opaque but not ultra sheer also. The consistency is on the semi-thick side. It does not get sticky and does not feel slippery either.
I picked up two of the light pink shades; Rose Melody and Blushing Harmony. Rose Melody is a softer pink color while Blushing Harmony is a medium pink with hints of mauve. Both shades are very natural colors that work well for everyday.
I do really enjoy these. They make my lips feel buttery smooth and they fill in most of the lines on my lips and make them look smoother. What do you think?
