This is not your ordinary lip color. Take lip gloss and lipstick, combine the idea for a lip balm and voila! L’Oréal Extraordinaire by Colour RicheR is born. This transforms lips from ordinary to extraordinary. Lip color is now richer, smoother and shine is magnified. The formula has precious micro-oils and rich color pigments that help to give the ideal balance of color and care for perfect lips. A soft doe-foot applicator allows for silky smooth, gliding application. Extraordinaire by Colour Riche comes in 16 shades.
To apply, start with the wand in the center of your upper lip and work outward toward the edges of the lips. Follow the contours of the lips. For the bottom lip glide across the entire bottom lip.

These are the most interesting lip colors I have ever worn. They go on first feeling like a lip gloss. There is no stickiness in the formula that I notice. I do believe that they are very pigmented. Below I am wearing Blushing Harmony and Nude Ballet. Just one swipe on the lips delivers great pigment with the slickness of gloss that wears for hours. The difference is that this is more of a “super” lip color. Eventually the shine does wear off but the color does stay. It ends up feeling like a lipstick after a while.

This is serious lip color. It is part of a new trend that has lip gloss mixed with lipstick. And it works! I like this trend because the companies are getting better at delivering a great product. It may have taken a while, but now it is near perfect! L’Oréal Extraordinaire by Colour RicheR is an excellent example of this mixture and I think that if they deliver more shades (Especially shimmers, are you listening L’Oréal ?) then how can they go wrong!
L’Oréal Extraordinaire by Colour RicheR retails for $9.99 and is available at www.lorealparisusa.com and mass market retailers such as Walgreens, Rite-Aid and Wall-Mart.
