L'Oréal Colour Riche Extraordinaire in Pink Tremolo 105 REVIEW

14 January 2014

This is going to be a review on a new lip product from L'Oréal; the Colour Riche Extaordinaire liquid lipstick. This is basically one of those lipstick/lip gloss hybrids. I'm pretty sure this is their version of the Maybelline The Elixir lippies they have out. The formulas are pretty similar in texture. These are pretty pricy for a lip product; they're currently $9.99 according to L'Oréal's website and that is a lot of money for a drugstore lip gloss. The tube is small and compact, which is nice but at the same time...this product contains 0.18 fl. oz./5.5 mL, which is more than the amount in the Revlon Super Lustrous glosses (0.13 fl. oz./3.9 mL) BUT less than what comes in the Le Glosses from L'Oréal, which are also only seven dollars at most places. (0.40 fl. oz./12 mL)

I only own the one color but I might be picking up a few more and I do really like this particular lip product. The shade I own is "105 Pink Tremolo" and it's a really pretty hot pink. It's not too blue-based and I think it would work well with a variety of skin tones. t's easier for me to type up individual color reviews so this is probably going to be how reviews get done lately, lol. If you like smaller posts like this instead of my huge multi-color reviews, please leave a comment and let me know! :) Thanks in advance.

According to L'Oréal:

Transform lips from ordinary to extraordinary. Color is richer, lip surface is smoother and shine is magnified. Formulated with precious micro-oils and rich color pigments, Extraordinaire provides the ideal balance of color and care for perfect lips. The unique soft-touch applicator allows for a silky-smooth, gliding application."

I don't understand the Colour Riche packaging. I find it to look cheap and tacky. The gold holds fingerprints super easily. This product still has the same cheap, tacky gold, but I do like the product appearance. Like the Maybelline product, it looks like a lipstick tube. But I'm not the type of person to flip out over packaging so that aspect doesn't really bother me.

I really do like this gloss. It applies smoothly and evenly and does have a line smoothing effect on the lips. It's still thick, but it's not as thick as the Maybelline product. Neither gloss is actually sticky, just thick. It's actually easy to apply too much product, which makes it incredibly uncomfortable to wear but it's a slower process with this gloss than with the Elixir product. Because it's a thicker gloss, it wears for a decent amount of time. Longer than a standard gloss, at least. I get about four to five hours before it needs definite touching up. It feels pretty nice on the lips, super hydrating. And when it wears off, your lips still feel nice. These liquid lipsticks are so much better than the glossy stains that they had released earlier! Although I do prefer the more pointy applicator in those. This applicator isn't really bad, but the other one was better, for me at least.

Finally, the pigmentation is great. It's creamy and glossy and very true to the color in the tube. Overall, I'm quite pleased. There's not much I can say about this. I guess potential negatives would be the price (which is a bit steep) and the texture. I actually prefer thicker glosses so this doesn't bother me, but it's not a super comfortable gloss, in the sense of not being able to feel it on the lips. You can certainly feel it on your mouth and it will gunk up any glass you sip out of. Also, if you apply too much, it can seep into your mouth and the taste is not great. It's not HORRIBLE, but it is STRONG and more like flowers.

Petition for L'Oréal to make all future lip products smell and taste like the Le Glosses, because the baked good scent is amazing.
