They feel quite thick and “on there” (as compared to my favorite barely there lip formulas). They stick to hair strands that taking photos with ‘wind effect’ (contrived or not!) isn’t as fun and ideal. They make you look like you just knocked down a slab of pork chops in one bite. You get the picture! However last year, upon trying the Dior Fluid Sticks, I’ve been more open to trying lip glosses! Curious to know how L’Oreal’s L’Extraordinaire liquid lipsticks fair?
Liquid Lipsticks by Color Riche
There’s definitely nothing extraordinary with a liquid lipstick formula, right? I’m even confused as to how to draw the line between lip glosses and liquid lipsticks anymore. Do super pigmented lip glosses qualify as liquid lipsticks? How about liquid lipsticks that are less opaque? Are they not just lip glosses? I’m officially confused. Definitely a sign of more innovative times though, yes? Next thing we know we’re not sure if we’re putting on liquid or powder foundation because they’ll virtually be the same.
Let me attempt to illustrate these L’Oreal L’Extraordinaire* liquid lipsticks anyway – they are quite in between a liquid lipstick and a lip gloss. I feel like they have good pigment (see below) but they lack more oomph to be qualified as a lipstick. So to me, they’re basically just lip glosses with more pigment than the usual. But with less – almost none – of the tacky, sticky lipgloss feel despite being high-shine products.
The first three pink shades – Rose Finale, Rose Symphony and Coral Encore – basically register the same on my lips (!?!?!?) probably because of the lighting. They are more difficult to work with as application is quite streaky and uneven in one layer. I have to put on at least two layers to even them out. The last two which are reds, Rouge Soprano and Ruby Opera, are easier to work with as they apply fully pigmented in one swipe and aren’t as streaky as the pinks. Only issue with the darks is that it’s hard to get a clean outline as the pigments tend to bunch up on the outer lip area.
Did I mention these aren’t sticky? They are quite smooth and less heavy than others although you will feel them on as they don’t particularly set. I also noticed that while they aren’t moisturizing, they don’t dry my lips like the L’Oreal Shine Caresses did with their high alcohol content. I feel that these L’Extraordinaires are very similar to the Rimmel Apocalips so if you liked those, you may like these as well. I haven’t tried the Maybelline Elixirs but I feel that these are quite similar to those, too.
Wear time isn’t impressive. These don’t last longer than a meal on me, except the darker shades which leave a stain. Since I mentioned these don’t fully set and cling on to the lips, once you sip coffee or grab a snack, these come off easily. These also have a subtle fruity mango-peachy scent which you’ll either love or loathe. I personally like the scent, it’s not bothersome as the others I’ve tried. Overall, while I find the formula better than other lip glosses I’ve tried, I find nothing particularly extraordinary with these L’Extraordinaires. That doesn’t mean they aren’t worth a try if you’re a liquid lipstick fan, though. I personally love the Ruby Opera shade!
