Review: L'oreal L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick

I thought I'd do a short review on the 'L'Oreal L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick' today. If I'm honest, I had no idea that it had such a jazzy name until I just searched it, but it I think it is rather classy!!
The first thing I want to say about this 'liquid lipstick' is that I really like the packaging! I think it is not too much and too in your face, but it isn't plain and boring! It has a screw on lid as you apply it like a lip-gloss, and it is all gold except for the 'section' (I couldn't think of the write word!!) of colour shown above, and the same colour is put on the top and the bottom.

When I first applied it I was like (and I quote) "whooo...". Lets just say it was quite bright and I wasn't expecting that from the colour shown on the container. However (as seen above above) I tend to remove excess with a tissue or my finger to make a shiny pink colour that isn't too bright.

The pictures above and below show what it looks like before I remove excess (on the right) and after (on the left).
It doesn't look as though there is a huge difference here but it is normally a lot brighter than the picture on the right is showing when I first apply it!

The actually consistency of this lip-gloss is quite thick and the only criticism I have is that it feels quite sticky and heavy on your lips. Having said that though, it lasts an incredibly long time. The initial bright colour doesn't last more than an hour in my experience, but the softer pink left afterwards can easily last an evening, but I would advice topping it up at some point, just to not leave your lips too bare!
Oh, and a cheeky selfie!;) Looking good, I know!!;)
Overall I would say that this is a good lip product, but I don't find myself using it that often, probably because the colour I got (Rose Melody) only goes with a few of my things, and I often opt for more of a nude colour with most of my outfits. This can actually be brought in 9 colours though so the product itself is worth buying in my opinion, but if I were to buy another one, I think I would either buy a really out there colour like a deep red, or the complete opposite and go for a nude. I don't think the in-between colours suit me too well!
 It costs £8.99 but I swear I bought it for less! Maybe I had a voucher or something! I don't think I would buy another one of these for this price but it is still a lot cheaper than some other alternatives!!
As usual, thanks for reading and your comments genuinely make my day!

    1. It is a shame but maybe I'm just too picky and critical!! thanks for reading xxxx

  2. I'm not a huge fan of liquid lipsticks because they make my hair stick to my lips every 10 seconds, but the color does look wonderful on you!
