These new Extraordinaire lip colors from L’Oreal Color Riche are absolutely magical. And this is coming from a girl who isn’t overly fond of lipgloss. The texture on these is by far one of my favorite glossy formulas. Not to mention that the color options are absolutely stunning. Magic in a little gold tube, I tell ya.
As far as formula goes, the I would compare them to the YSL Rouge Pur Couture liquid lipsticks. They’re one part lipstick one part gloss but they manage to be more moisturizing than sticky. My favrorite part of the L’Oreal Extraordinaire lipsticks is the way they wear. They have a slight staining quality that keeps you from getting the infamous “ring around the mouth” and I’ve not had any problems with them bleeding into lip lines. They also leave plenty of moisture on the lips like a balm long after the color has worn off.
I would have a hard time choosing just one favorite from the five that I have. Ruby Opera is a deep cherry red that is perfect for an evening look. Orange Tempo is my favorite for a mod daytime look. Rose Symphony and Molto Mauve are the go-to colors for tossing in my handbag everyday and Nude Ballet is a gorgeous nude to wear with a dark smokey eye.
