First Impression: L'oreal Paris Color Riche L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick

Tuesday, June 03, 2014

Hello ladies, 
I'm back with another first impression today. I absolutely love doing these and I actually have quite a few products that are waiting for their turn. Hopefully it's not only me that enjoys doing first impressions, but that you enjoy reading them as well.



























Today I'm going to talk about the L'oreal Color Riche L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick. Seriously, could they give them an even longer name?
I got this in Seiersberg and as far as I know, they're still not available in Slovenia. I've heard quite a few mixed reviews on these liquid lipsticks, but when I saw them in Seiersberg's Müller I was instantly drawn toward the shade 600 Nude Vibrato. They retail for 11,99€ there. 























What they say: Marketed as extraordinary lip colours with luxurious micro-oils infused with rich pigments. They claim to have colour intensity of a lipstick, magnifying shine of a gloss and softness of a balm (Boots.com).

My first impression: I love the sleek, golden packaging that it comes in, and the fact that you can easily see the shade you've got. The only thing I don't like about the packaging is the fact that there's no product name written on it, just the name of the shade. If I'm honest, this actually makes sense since the name is so long, but it would still be a nice touch. Although, by now probably all beauty enthusiast already know what this ''thingy'' is called. 
It has a pleasant, fruity scent that reminds me of peaches, and it lingers on your lips for a few minutes after applying it. I actually quite like it, even though I'm quite picky when it comes to scents.

















The thing that I don't like about this product, is the applicator. It's a completely flat wand that's actually very soft, but has a weird split down the middle. It grabs way too much of the product, so you do have to wipe off the excess. The application itself is a little bit tricky as well; it goes on a little bit streaky and doesn't apply evenly, so you have to be really careful or just go over with another coat. It's probably even more challenging with the brighter shades.
Other than that, I actually have to agree with what they are saying; it's very pigmented and even more shiny, it also feels very moisturising on the lips.
As you can see on the swatches below, it really is extremely glossy, it almost has that wet look to it. I think that it makes your lips look very juicy and even though I'm more of a matte-lipstick-gal, I've been loving this look lately.
The best part - it's NOT sticky AT ALL and it doesn't feel heavy on the lips as some glosses do.
As far as the longevity goes, it's not revolutionary; it did survive drinking although it did transfers to the glass. It started fading a little bit after good 3 hours, meaning that it has lost a little bit of that shine & started looking more like a lipstick, but it was completely gone after eating lunch.

















I'm absolutely head over heels about the shade itself. Nude Vibrato is, what I would call it, a peachy nude shade that has some tiny, tiny peachy&gold shimmers in it, but they're almost unnoticeable on the lips.
You can see that it actually is very opaque; the swatch on my hand is from one coat only and on the lips, I'm wearing two coats, even though I could get away with only one, if I would apply it more carefully. 
It also looks a little bit more nude and muted down on my lips, and I think that this is the perfect nude shade for me as it doesn't washes me out, nor does it make my teeth look yellow. 

All in all, I'm really liking this liquid lipstick and I kinda wish I didn't only get this one shade. Even though I'm not a big fan of the applicator, the shade itself prevails over that.

Have you tried the L' Extraordinaire liquid lipsticks? Do you like them?

  1. Resno sem razmišljala, da bi ga naročila takrat iz Boots, pa sem si premislila ko sem prebrala, da dosti ljudi moti fejk cvetlični vonj. And now I want it again :) Izgleda super, pa sploh ne maram glossov. Ne vem če bi počakala, da bodo prišli k nam, če sploh bodo ali naj kar naročim iz tujine.

    1. Js sm res ponavadi čisto mimo pri opisovanju vonjev, ampak mene ta res ne spominja na cvetlični vonj. I could be wrong though :D
      Mene je tud presenetilo, da mi je tako všeč, ker se ponavadi izogibam glossov. Sem pa sama tud v dilemi ali naj naročim še kak odtenek, ali naj raje počakam :D

  8. Sprva sem mislila, da je to še en izdelk v vrsti mat liquid šmink.. potem sem ugotovila, da je v resnici pigmentiran glos :P.

    Embalaža je luštna, ampak majhna.. :)

    1. Ja, malo drugačen od vse trenutnih matte lip lacquerjev :)
      Embalaža je res dokaj majhna in kompaktna, ampak izdelka pa dobiš več kot pa recimo Essence lip glossa (4 ml), ta L'orealov je pa 6ml.
