REVIEW: L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in 201 Rose Symphoy



I got tired just typing the name of this lip product. This was released as part of the Cannes special range this year. They have mattes and glosses, and well I prefer gloss. Like mentioned before I am in a total pink funk so I went for what looked like a pretty pink shade.

The name Rose Symphony just brings to mind shades of red, pink and white roses interwoven to create a tapestry of colour.

Price:950 INR
The packaging is a classy gold tube and the applicator is your regular doe foot applicator. The name is printed at the bottom of the tube and there is a coloured panel on the side, making identifying this product quite easy.

Being a gloss, the shine factor is pretty high. I really love it because once it settles it makes my lips look dewy. Thought the colour on the applicator looks quite bright it applies as a pretty doll like pink. I thought it might wash me out, but it actually doesn't.

I have a problem with lip gloss applicators. They never give me the smooth looking finish I want. So once I am done with applying it, I always dab my finger to make it smooth and sit properly. As soon as this is applied, it seems to kind of settle in the small cracks on the lips. In all honesty, this isn't visible unless you like come close to the person's lip and stare at them. People with dry lips may have a bit of issue with that.

My lips feel kind of moisturised after applying this. The feeling doesn't stay for too long, maybe for like 2-3 hours, but the gloss doesn't dry out the lips even after 3 hours. The gloss fades once you eat or drink something. There is a stain left for a while, but after about 3-4 hours it looks like there is nothing on your lips.

The Rose Symphony gloss makes sure that its presence is felt and leaves a trace on glasses. It is definitely transferable.



What I like about the product.
Love the colour and the packaging.
I like how glossy it is.

What I don't like about the product.
The price. It is quite pricey.
It is transferable.
Not very long lasting.

Tried something new with the camera


Overall it is an every day kind of colour for sure. It does not last very long and does have to be retouched. So I don't really see myself repurchasing it again especially at that price.
