L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Gloss #304 Ruby Opera
I am sorry for my long disappearance. I hope all of you are in pink of your health. I was so occupied with my exams that I barely got any time to pen down reviews for you. But since it is weekend now, I thought I will drop a review for all of you. I recently subscribed to Vogue magazine and as a part of fee gift for my annual subscription they were generous enough to send me some awesome L’Oreal Paris goodies. Yayyy I was so excited to have received them earlier today. It was completely unexpected to me that the gift will arrive this soon.
I received the L’Oreal Paris Kajal Magique, L’Oreal Paris Lucent Magique Blush palette (I will be doing a review on this sometime soon) and L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Color which I am reviewing in this post. Late of the trend of liquid lipsticks has been much hyped. All the brands are introducing their liquid lipsticks and so did L’Oreal a few months back. When I received the lipstick it completely reminded me of Maybelline Lip Polish. Oh! How I love the texture of that liquid lipstick. But anyways read on to know if L’Oreal impressed me with their glossy liquid lipstick or not.
Also don’t forget to read my previous post on Bio Bloom Dandruff Control Hair Cleanser. It can be your solution to dandruff problem.

How to use:
Use the wand to apply the lipstick starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to outer edges, following the contour of your mouth. Then slowly glide across the entire bottom lip and you are good to go.
The packaging is very impressive and rich. The case is completely golden with a little see-through area on the bottom case and the color indication on the bottom of the case. Has a twist and screw cap and the lipstick is surely travel safe.
The texture is smooth but not as smooth as the Maybelline lip polish. Also it is transferable and the color settles in fine lines of the lips. I am a little disappointed with the texture. However the applicator is soft and impressive. I had to dip the wand in the case 4 times to cover my entire lips.

Cons of L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Gloss #304 Ruby Opera:

- Average stay time
My take on L’Oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Lip Gloss #304 Ruby Opera:
Well my experience with this lipstick is that of love-hate types. I liked the finish but I don’t prefer to see such glossy lipsticks on myself as I am more into matte finish lipsticks. Also I don’t like leaving behind lipstick marks on straw and glasses and this one transfers and also the stay time is average.
I will rate it 7.5 on a scale of 10
Will I recommend this lipstick again?
Yes, if you like glossy lipsticks and are looking for a smooth textured, hydrating lipstick then you can give this one a try.
