I’ve been interested in trying these little gold lip products for awhile, but a couple weeks ago I finally got my hands on L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Colors in Rose Symphony* and Molto Mauve*.
L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Colors are a pigmented lip gloss product with a comfortable, non-sticky, cushiony formula. They come in small gold packages that indicate the shade on the outside, but it’s not actually a window into the product which is too bad. The brush is pointed and a bit curved–it holds the perfect amount of product and makes it very easy to apply the product. I am a huge fan of the applicator and think it would probably work well even with darker shades. There’s a slight scent to the product, but it doesn’t bother me, unlike Maybelline Elixirs.
I received two shades to try out, and the first one is L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Colors in Rose Symphony, a bright pink with gold shimmer in it. It isn’t entirely opaque and I do feel it settles into fine lines a bit, although that’s not incredibly noticeable unless you are taking a lip swatch from a few inches away from my face. I find the L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Colors very comfortable on the lips, although they do wear about as long as an average gloss which is around 2 hours.
The second shade is an absolute favourite and one I have been reaching for a ton lately (as well as it being featured in yesterday’s blog post–check out a full face photo here of me wearing it), and that’s L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Colors in Molto Mauve. This is a mauve-y brown shade with a touch of shimmer that is my-lips-but-shinier-and-prettier. The pigmentation is not incredibly intense so I don’t need a mirror to apply it, and I love how natural and pretty it looks.
I’m really glad I finally had a chance to try out this formula from L’Oreal. To me, these are basically lip glosses in pretty packaging with a decent amount of pigmentation and an incredibly comfortable formula. The applicator is pretty cool too! So if you are looking for a bright rose or an awesome neutral, definitely consider L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Colors in Rose Symphony and Molto Mauve.
