L'oreal L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick By Colour Riche In Rose Symphony

YSL Glossy Stain Dupe

Last month when snooping around boots I came across the L'oreal stand and noticed these new little beauties. I had heard a few things about them from various blogs but one thing that attracted me was the fact they reminded of the famous YSL lip stains. I swatched a few on my hand and decided on Rose Symphony.

I usually avoid any lipgloss kind of product, I just hate the feeling on my lips and then wind gets involved and your hair ends up smothered all over your lips and ew! one big mess. However I thought I would give them a chance. First off I really like the packaging almost identical to the YSL one. The wand applicator is perfect it fits nicely onto your lips and applies product evenly. As for texture, they are like a gloss, but kind of different. They almost feel like a really moisturising lipstick. However there still is that glossy look to it but I don't find them sticky which is good. Another thing to point out is they smell amazing, I can't quite put my finger on what they remind me of but it smells incredible, which I find important in a lipstick, its going to be stuck under your nose all day it has to smell at bit decent. 

The shade I have is a pink/ coral shade but more on the pinky side of coral. I did noticed it looks way more neon on my mum so its one of those shades that adapts to your lip shade. On me though its a pinky coral with tiny amount of gold sparkle running through it. Swatched on the back of my hand it reminds me of Essie Cute As Button.  Staying time is around 2-3 hours before needing to touch up. They do fade off nicely and leave the lips a tad bit stained. Maybe a darker shade would have more of a staining effect.

Overall I really like these glossy stains from L'oreal, They are a lot better than I thought they would be considering I hate gloss. I think once this ban is over I will pick up a few more shades. I did notice that the States have way better shades than us, but that's the joys of it I guess.

L'oreal L'Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick By Colour Riche retail for €13.49 / £8.99 in boots.
