My thoughts | L'Oreal Color Riche L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipsticks




The newest buzz in beauty has to be Liquid Lipsticks. From the original Hourglass Liquid Lipstick to the more recent Dior Fluid Sticks, the highstreet has now caught up with recent offerings from L'Oreal and Bourjois.

I have yet to try the latter and really want to as they are my faaaaav formula - matte! But on a recent trip to Boots in my quest to collect more 'drugstore' makeup options for my most recent youtube vid (I severely lack in any kind of drugstore product as I tend to be a wee bit of a makeup snob) these caught my eye.

The first one I got was 301 Rouge Soprano as the colour fit perfectly for the look I was trying to create. I fell in love with the formula so much I scooted back two days later and nabbed 204 Tangerine Sonate. First thing I'd say, don't bother with the nudes, they're no different to a regular lipgloss or stick of your choice. Defo go for the brights though. I love the idea of liquid lipsticks as they dry down to more of a stain and are a real no hassle, no smudge option when you're going somewhere and don't want to be haunted by the half hourly, touch up/is it on my teeth/has it smeared/have I eaten half of it scenario. The formula of these are super glossy and this doesn't fade or bleed. They are also really comfortable to wear, feel pretty moisturising for a gloss and last really well. Due to the sheerer, gloss type formula, which can be ramped up to a more intense finish by adding a lip liner underneath, I think they are a great way to dip your toe in the bold lip pool if you're not usually too comfortable doing this.

All in all a definite thumbs up from me!

Have you tried the L'Oreal Liquid Lipsticks, or any others for that matter?

  1. Both colors look gorgeous on you but I think my favorite is Tangerine Sonate - it's perfect for summer and a tan :o) Xx

  2. These both look really gorgeous on you! Think summer is the only time I gravitate towards punchy glossy colours like this. Rockin it girl ;)

  3. I really like both colors on you, and think the Tangerine suits you most beautifully. I have the nude shade and I really like it. I unfortunately am not that great with brights as they accentuate my lip shape which I am just not all that happy with. (thin upper lip and medium bottom lip). Nudes seem to give me a fuller looking lip. I have been watching you for quite a while on You Tube and am always so excited to see when you post a new video. Your videos are fabulous, so I figured I would come over and check out your blog and it certainly did not disappoint! I feel like a kindred spirit with you in the fact that I always have daily, weekly, monthly beauty and fashion wants. The husband does not quite understand as many times as I try to explain it to him. On another note, I really like your eye shadow colors in the Loreal Lipstick pics and think I will try it as I have the same color eyes and hair as you do. Just lovely! P.S. Your eyes look really great with eyeliner on! xo
