Loreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick, Plum Adagio ~ review,picture & swatch

Hello girls...Today I'm reviewing Loreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick, Plum Adagio These liquid lipsticks are available in 16 shades. I was craving for a "dark plum"lipstick something kinda vampire like ...yes you heard it right vampire like so I decided to try "Plum Adagio" but I'm not impressed with the shade. The color is pretty dark in the tube but its sheer on lips.


According to Loreal(taken from here)

Transform lips from ordinary to extraordinary. Color is richer, lip surface is smoother and shine is magnified. Formulated with precious micro-oils and rich color pigments, Extraordinaire provides the ideal balance of color and care for perfect lips. The unique soft-touch applicator allows for a silky-smooth, gliding application.

Ingredients (taken from here
OCTYLDODECYL NEOPENTANOATE ● TRIMETHYLSILOXYPHENYL DIMETHICONE ● HYDROGENATED POLYISOBUTENE ● HYDROGENATED STYRENE/METHYLSTYRENE/INDENE COPOLYMER ● HYDROGENATED POLYDECENE ● HYDROGENATED STYRENE/BUTADIENE COPOLYMER ● HYDROGENATED CASTOR OIL ISOSTEARATE ● BIS-BEHENYL/ISOSTEARYL/PHYTOSTERYL DIMER DILINOLEYL DIMER DILINOLEATE ● BIS-DIGLYCERYL POLYACYLADIPATE 2 ● CETYL DIMETHICONE ● SILICA SILYLATE ● PENTYLENE GLYCOL ● POLY C10-30 ALKYL ACRYLATE ● CAPRYLYL GLYCOL ● SYNTHETIC FLUORPHLOGOPITE ● ALUMINA ● PENTAERYTHRITYL TETRA-DI-T-BUTYL HYDROXYHYDROCINNAMATE ● CALCIUM ALUMINUM BOROSILICATE ● ARGANIA SPINOSA OIL / ARGANIA SPINOSA KERNEL OIL● TOCOPHERYL ACETATE ● CAMELLIA OLEIFERA SEED OIL● ROSA CANINA FRUIT OIL ● CAPRYLIC/CAPRIC TRIGLYCERIDE● CALCIUM SODIUM BOROSILICATE ● MAGNESIUM SILICATE● SILICA ●TIN OXIDE ● NELUMBIUM SPECIOSUM EXTRACT / NELUMBIUM SPECIOSUM FLOWER EXTRACT ● PARFUM / FRAGRANCE● [+/- MAY CONTAIN] ●CI 77891 / TITANIUM DIOXIDE ● MICA ● CI 45410 / RED 28 LAKE● CI 77491 ● CI 77492 ● CI 77499 / IRON OXIDES ● CI 15850 / RED 7● CI 45380 / RED 22 LAKE ● CI 15985 / YELLOW 6 LAKE ● CI 19140 / YELLOW 5 LAKE ● CI 42090 / BLUE 1 LAKE ● CI 15850 / RED 7 LAKE





Packaging...
The packaging is not very impressive. It comes in a gold color tube,with color display on bottom and side,which is sort of cheap looking. This gold tube is like a magnate for fingertips.


Applicator...
The applicator is soft and feathery. The wand is very flexible and it picks up the perfect amount of product.


Plum Adagio ($9.99 for 0.18 fl oz) is a deep purple shade with small amount of red micro glitter.didn't know Plum Adagio contain glitter until I applied it,you will not be able to see glitter from the color shown on little window. 


Texture and formula...
Texture of Loreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick is little runny and sticky compare to Maybelline Color Elixir Lip Color and Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain. The color doesn't transfer well on the lips,some areas are very sheer while other areas covered heavily.

Formula of these gloss are very moisturizing. Due to layering it feels quite thick on lips and it has some weird taste and smell which is a huge drawback for me.




Pros...
  • available in 16 shades
  • they are more of moisturizing gloss
  • can be layered over the lipstick
  • build-able 
  • travel friendly

Cons...
  • weird chemical smell
  • cheap packaging
  • runny consistency
  • high price for this quality 
  • it does settle in lip lines
  • uneven application
  • 1-2 hours of staying power
  • frequent reapplications
  • bleeds easily
  • too glossy
  • easily transfer

Overall, I'm disappointed...a major turn off is chemical smell and staying power.
