I picked up this L’Oreal L’Extraordinaire liquid lipstick on a time-killing trip to boots a couple of weeks ago. I was waiting to meet my mum after work so I popped into Boots as you do! There was a little display of these new(ish) lip products and it just caught my eye. I like a bit of gold packaging, and the long-lasting formula intrigued me.
I decided to go for a pinky nude shade, as that’s what I usually go for. Also, bit of a side note, my recent hair struggle with it going ginger means that very few colours suit me at the moment. I’m back at the hairdressers next week, and I can’t wait to be rid of the dreaded orange tones! (No offense to any red-heads out there, I just really don’t suit it)
Anyway, back onto this lipstick. I picked up the shade 101 Rose Melody and its a really lovely wear-anytime shade. I’ve been wearing it a lot for work, because its so easy to throw on, and it lasts longer than most other nude lip products I have. (It’s also ridiculously hot where I work, so even the longest lasting formulas, especially in foundation, don’t last much longer than a couple of hours.)
Because of the blend of oils in the formulation, it’s very moisturising. I was worried this would make the product move around, but I haven’t noticed any of that at all. I’m not sure on the darker shades as I’ve only tried this shade.
The applicator is really nice too. It reminds me of the YSL Glossy Stain applicator but a little less shaped. It applies the product really evenly, and the packaging is really lovely, it definitely looks more YSL than L’Oreal.
I’m really pleased with this little product, and I’d recommend giving it a try. They’re £8.99 so not the cheapest option, but I’d say they’re worth the price! (They’re also on 2 for £15 at Boots at the moment!)
Hope you’re all having a lovely week so far! It’s been my only day off this week today! x
