By Contributor: Mansi
As Anshita promised in one of her previous posts on L’oreal Paris Cannes Makeup Collection, TeamVNA is back with a detailed review on the new Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Color which is one of the 3 newly introduced products by Loreal from Cannes 2015. I am sure most of you Beauty Divas must be well aware of the advent of Liquid Lipsticks in the world of Make up. The shade I shall be reviewing and swatching for you all today is Coral Encore.
Brands like Revlon and Maybelline have had similar products in the market for quite sometime now and Loreal has finally launched their own contender in the Indian Market. I have used and liked my Loreal Lipsticks – especially their Caresse Collection so when I saw this little baby, I just had to pick up a shade (Had to because : Refer to Rule Number 4 for Beauty Bloggers* at the bottom of the review).
L’Oreal Claims: Transform your lips from ordinary to extraordinary with L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick. The doe foot brush gives it a 3-D effect making your lips pop and stands out. This is a 3 in 1 lip colour, which takes care of your lips like a lip balm, highly pigmented as a lipstick and shiny as a gloss.
It comes with an easy applicator, which makes the gliding of the lipstick even.
The gloss does not smudge.
Keeps lips moisturised and hydrated.
It is formulated with precious micro-oils and rich colour pigments.
It makes your lip fuller and plumper.
Shades Available: Coral Encore, Rouge Allegro, Rouge Soprano, Ruby Opera, Tangerine Sonate, Fuchia Orchestra, Molto Mauve, Nude Ballet, Orange Tempo, Plum Quartet, Rose Finale, Rose Melody, Rose Symphony
Product & Packaging: The lipstick has a Golden Shiny Packaging which looks like it’s a standard Lipstick however when you twist the top it pops open to reveal a Doe Foot soft Lip applicator and the other half contains the liquid lipstick product. The outer packaging is completely in sync with the product itself since its all shiny and glossy on the outside too! The bottle also consists of a coloured patch along one side so as to easily identify the colour without opening the bottle. The application wand has a fine tip which facilitates a smooth and precise application on even the thinner lips.
As far as the texture of the loreal liquid lipstick is concerned, I would say that as compared to lip glosses, it is slightly on the thicker side which does feel a little weighty on my lips but despite that it is quite wearable due to the rich colour pay off. True to its name it is indeed a lip colour with a high gloss finish which does not compromise on the colour pay off as is the case with lip glosses in general. The wand glides on the lips like jelly and is not sticky at all. Although one application lasts on the lips for about 3 odd hours, the high gloss finish seems to recede after the first hour or so. L’Oreal extraordinaire is perfect for people with fine cracks in their lips or dry lips. It completely covers all cracks and the high gloss sheen prevents it from forming into lines at the same time ensuring high moisturization for your lips.
Suitability: This color riche Coral Encore baby is perfect for ladies with dry lips. Since the product is Parabens free, it does not cause any irritation on even sensitive lips like mine. There are 12 shades available in the market ranging from pale to vibrant colors. This particular shade called Coral Encore is a vibrant peach with pinkish undertones rendering it true to its name: Coral. Combined with a high glossy look Coral Encore is sure to make heads turn. This Extraordinaire Lipcolor shade will work well with pale to medium skin tones. The lipstick contains minute shimmer particles which make it more suitable for evening wear. Combine this colour with a smooth winged liner and you’re good to go on that Movie date this weekend!
Price & Availability: The product is priced at INR 950 and is available across all modern trade outlets. You can also buy it online at Nykaa.com and Amazon.in.

My Take: This new launch by Loreal is great try for people who love Glossy lips. I have sensitive lips that tend to be dry at times. The Smooth moisturizing formula is non sticky on my lips and helps conceal the cracks. The colour pay off is brilliant and the best part about this lip gloss is that it dries off consistently and does not create patches. The 2 downsides would be that it does feel a little weighty on my lips and the pricing could have been easier on the pocket considering that it’s a newly launched product but I’d definitely rate it a must try for all lipstick lovers. This particular colour Coral Encore works well for NC 25 skin tone and makes my lips fuller and plumper. Wouldn’t call it a must have for everybody but people who like glossy lips should definitely go for it!
*Rule Number 4 for Beauty Bloggers : Thou shall not shy away from buying that new lipstick on the stands. It is for the benefit of masses really. So if it does seem like it shall be expensive on thy pocket, think of all the people you be doeth good to. *hides face*
