One of my favorite beauty products the past few months have been the L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire. I was sent these as a survey winner from Glamour in surprisingly awesome colors: Ruby Opera (red), Molto Mauve (MLBB), & Coral Encore (coral of course).
First of all, the packaging is insanely luxe for a drugstore product. They remind me of YSL's Glossy Stains packaging, and I think they look great on my vanity. To open, you need to twist the top, rather than pulling it off like a lipstick.

The first time I used each of the colors, I was shocked by how much pigment there was on my lips. The color you see on the packaging is basically what you get. The consistency is basically a liquid lipstick/non-sticky lip gloss.

In terms of wear time, the colors don't claim to be stains and will rub off while eating or drinking. In my experience, the colors wear pretty evenly (in other words, you won't get flakes at the edges or "clown mouth" in the middle of a meal!).
Overall, I really like the range of colors I have and will be looking out for sales and discounts in the drugstores! What lip color have you tried recently? Did you like it?
