L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick 1st Impressions ♥


So I recently purchased 2 of the Liquid Lipsticks by L’Oreal, I haven’t seen these hyped up too much, but I know they have been around for about 2 years. When I saw them on the Boots website I just had to grab a couple.

The L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipsticks are presented in a stunning White Gold packaging it has such a minimalistic look and has the feel of a high end product. You get a soft fluffy doe foot applicator, when applying the product to the lips it glides on softly and the applicator lines the lips without creating a messy over-line.

Liquid lipsticks are the talk of the town these days, and so they should be with their promised long wear a shade to fit everybody’s needs.

The 2 that I picked up are in the shades 500 Malto Mauve & 601 Nude Ballet, I chose these simply because I love nude and mauve colors as I feel they suit me best (or well at least I believe they do lol)

So my 1st impression <3

500 Malto Mauve
A dusty pink with some brown undertones this liquid lipstick has a slight shimmer to it when swatched it looks absolutely stunning. The product is easy to apply and as previously mentioned glides onto the lips. I did expect a little more pigmentation and I feel that it is more of a gloss rather than a liquid lipstick simply due to the sheerness.

601 Nude Ballet
Anything with the word nude in I am completely sold on the product, I was so excited to try this shade and the name is just so cute.
When swatched again it has a nice level of pigmentation but on the lips is again extremely sheer, I found it also made my lips look like they had foundation beneath them which they didn’t. it seems as though the pigmentation only picked up on certain points of the lip.

Nude Ballet

Overall I am not completely won over with these liquid lipsticks I do feel that they are quite sticky and very glossy ( which isn’t all bad )but I’m not one to just dismiss a product I will make them work well I will try over other lipsticks for a glossy effect and also pair them with lip liners – which will give them lips more depth and take away the sheerness whilst still keeping the pigmentation avoiding that washed out look.

  3. I love L'oreal lipsticks so much! These look so gorgeous but the pigmentation doesn't look great!


  4. I love these colours so much but glossy lips just don't suit me at all! x


  5. Firstly, how gorgeous are your pictures?! Now on to this post.. I am loving Nude Ballet on your lips! It's abit of a let down that it is a little sheer but like you said, it would work great if you used it on top of a lipstick. I think I'm going to have to get my hands on Nude Ballet after reading this blog post!
