Welcome to my my first ever L’Oreal lip product!

I’m not going to lie, I picked this up mainly because the packaging is absolutely gorgeous, it’s so luxe looking for a drugstore product.

L’Oreal say that the Colour Riche Extraordinaire (ugh I hope I don’t have to type that too many times) isn’t a lipstick or gloss it’s a bit of a liquid lipstick hybrid bringing in the best of both worlds. The smooth feel of a balm but the pigment of a glossy lipstick, honestly i’d put it in the lip gloss basket. While it does feel nice on the lips and while it is a little sticky it’s certainly not uncomfortable to wear. On that note, wear time isn’t the greatest which is also why I’d call it more of a gloss.

The colour selection wasn’t too big but most of the colours in the range are on trend. I went with the punchy pink of Rose Symphony.

I’m not usually a lip gloss girl, but this has been used quite a bit lately. It’s one of those great don’t need a mirror to apply colours and the pink is punchy enough to brighten up my face.

Coming in at a price point in of $21.95AUD it’s a little on the pricey side for a drugstore lip product. I managed to pick mine up on a 30% off at Priceline (woo!).

Mind the face lol I was in torrential rain and had a long day at the Spa & Beauty expo before this shot was taken 🙂

These babies (lol!) have been out for awhile now but I only recently decided to hit up my local Priceline and grab a couple. I chose Berry Crush & Cherry Kiss (Which I keep writing down as Coral Kiss… it looks more coral right?).


Moisturising with a slight hint of colour, these are my new go-to balms for on the go (or in the case of Berry Crush on my desk at work).

What’s even better is they only retail for RRP $3.95AUD.
As you can probably see Berry Crush is the more pigmented of the 2 colours, but Cherry Kiss gives a nice flush of coral to the lip without being too over the top. Plus it’s a winner if you don’t have a mirror handy so if you go “outside the lines” people will be none the wiser.
The scent isn’t over bearing either, just a sweet fruit scent that doesn’t linger around too long.
