Disappointing Products – Loreal Paris Color Riche L’Extraordinaire Mat Lip Colors

I love almost everything from Loreal but this lip product disappointed me a lot. I had high expectations from the Loreal Paris Color Riche L’Extraordinaire Mat lip color in the shade Madeleine Pink but unfortunately, it failed to perform well. If only the formula was as great as the luxurious rose gold packaging! This product could have been a winner but turned out to be a dud.

My biggest complaint with this product is that it claims to be a matte lip color but the formula is a glossy lip cream at best. The swatches show that it reflects the light and is pretty shiny. I could live with the shine though, but the texture of the formula is very difficult to wear throughout the day too.

Although the color is quite opaque, the formula is pretty streaky and it is hard to get an even pigmentation on the lips. You will need to use a lipliner or will have to apply the product very carefully to get an even finish. I would much rather go for some other liquid lipstick than spend so much effort on perfecting my look with this one. Moreover, the formula clings to every imperfection of the lips and exaggerates them more than even my true matte lipsticks do.

I was drawn to this product because of its gorgeous pink shade with slightly peachy undertones. If the formula would have been more cooperative then this lip color could have been perfect for daily wear. What is more, this product is priced at INR 950, you can buy two decent liquid lipsticks for that amount. So basically, I would recommend skipping this product and trying out the other lip glosses and lipsticks from Loreal instead.

    What a letdown. The shade is so pretty but the texture looks so clumpy and sticky. Thanks for sharing your review. 💕

  4. Why do they call a product matte when it doesn’t dry down matte? Ugh. Also, looking at the picture, I think the formula is quite uneven, slightly patchy and blotchy.

    I’d love it if you’d stop by my blog and check out my latest post: https://macandmetallica.wordpress.com
