A third of the way into my #30daysofred with day 10 and we have a beautiful lipstick today that should make those who love a super glossy lipstick without having to use the gloss very happy!
Day 10 lipstick is a rediscovery for me and one I’d forgotten about. I was sent these to review a long time ago and the nude one (Post here) I actually used completely up (Shocking for me as I never have that with lipsticks). This red is really special as its vibrant, glossy and very sexy! Let me introduce you to L’Oreal L’Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick Ruby Opera 304.
This was probably one of the first liquid lipsticks I used that wasn’t a matte formula. I’ve never liked lipgloss, that sticky, slick feeling (Almost waxy) on my lips makes me feel a bit… Well, yuck. So when I saw these lipsticks I wasn’t sure I’d like the formula at all. However, I couldn’t have been more wrong.
The L’Extraordinaire Liquid Lipstick is vibrant in intensity, pigmented with just 1 swipe, super hydrating, has the appearance of a gloss but the feeling of a hydrating lipstick. Its a strange formula, in fact its a brilliant formula, just not what you are expecting when you see it swatched.
Ruby Opera is the perfect SEXY red. Its not too orange, not too blue, it looks beautiful on ALL skin tones, makes your lips look full and pouty. I’ve worn this many a time on a night out, it lasts well on the lips but does transfer. So you will need to take it along for regular touch ups. Its very eye catching though, not for the shy of colour girls and for me, one of those lipsticks where as if you like red, you have to own it!
