With liquid lipsticks being a rave for their long staying ability, there are still a few of us who are repulsive to them due to the dryness factor. Myself not a great fan of dry matte lipsticks due to my insane drier lips prefer to stay with glossier types most of the times. Today I’ll be reviewing a liquid lipstick that falls into that glossier category and it’s the L’oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick in the shade Dancing Rose. Let’s get straight into the details.

My take on L’oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick :
Packaging : L’oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick comes in a luxurious golden case with a transparent oval patch that let us see the shade of the lip color. The top part is a twist up mechanism to which a pointed doe foot applicator is attached. The shade name and number is on a sticker at the top of the lipstick case. I love the packaging, its simple yet chic.
Fragrance: The lipstick has a fruity vanilla fragrance that fades away in a couple of minutes after application and thankfully it does not have any particular taste. I hate lipsticks that tastes weird and smells chemical-ish.
Shade: 104 Dancing Rose is a beautiful mauve rose with subtle silvery shimmers that makes it apt for special occasions as well as casual outings. It goes well with my skin tone and can be worn with such an ease. I feel this shade would be suitable for fairer/medium skin tones rather than deeper skin tones as it might look washed out due to the shade’s cooler undertone.
Application & Performance: The liquid lipstick has a thick creamy texture that glides on to the lips like butter. For me this lipstick is more like a gloss, it does go almost opaque in a single swipe but tends move around like a gloss. I would suggest to use a lip liner underneath so that the liquid lipstick stays intact at one place.
The pointed applicator aids in ease of application and disperses the color uniformly without looking patchy. The lipstick gives an initial sticky feeling which settles down to a comfortable finish after a minute or so. Building up the color does not look clumpy or make the lips heavy.
Despite being the glossier type, L’oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick has a good staying power, staying for about 3+ hours with slight munching. With a lip liner underneath , it did stay longer.
What I find praiseworthy is that, even though this is a shimmery shade, when it fades away it does not look terrible by leaving the shimmers alone on the lips and the color fully gone. Simply put, the color and the shimmer vanishes evenly from your lips, so no need to worry about your whole mouth area shining like a disco ball.
- Color coded packaging.
- Pretty pink shade with mauve undertones.
- The shimmers are subtle and not too glittery.
- Pointed doe foot applicator aids in precise application.
- Has a creamy texture that glides easily onto the lips.
- Nicely pigmented and Good staying power.
- This particular shade may not suit deeper skin tones.
- More like a lip gloss.
In all, If you are looking for a non-drying liquid lipstick that acts more like a lip gloss, then get this. But if you are expecting this to be a super matte long staying liquid lipstick, then you need to stay away from the entire L’oreal Color Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick Range. I found myself reaching out for this more often on days when I just need a pop of color on my lips but for the price it retails I would not repurchase it again.
