I just received my Ulta Cosmetic order and I wanted to try this L'Oreal Product. I love Lipstick and Lip Gloss and when I initially ordered this, I thought it was a lip STICK. I, didn't read the product description.
The ultimate sophistication for the most perfect lips ever. Colour Riche Extraordinaire contains five precious micro-oils to create the perfect lip result in one luxuriously comfortable step: resurfaces and smooths lips like a balm, provides colour impact of a lipstick, and gives a varnished 3-d shine effect of a gloss. The unique applicator is soft to the touch and designed for the most precise application to the lips every time. The new vision of lipcolor.
So when it arrived I was pulling and pulling on the top to reveal a lipstick only to find I had to unscrew it and use a doe tip applicator.
First I must compliment the packaging. I love the shiny gold tube.
This product has a slight scent to it when you open it, and not a bad one but I noticed it. You can taste it if you lick your lips. It is rich and creamy but not opaque and with this smooth feel to it when applied I found myself rubbing my lips together after each application because it felt great on. The color I picked is a perfect nude color, and it has a bit of shine to it. Not greasy or sticky like some glosses in a tube, this one definitely is a few steps above those. The only disappointment was I thought it was a lipstick because I didn't read the full description. Ulta didn't offer a second photo to show that it was a gloss product. I am glad I bought it and I will pick out a second color...something pink. There are 16 shades to chose from, at a price of $9.99 each.
