In my last two blog posts I reviewed the new La Vie En Rose Moist matte lipsticks in Doutzen’s and Aishwarys’s. Along with the moist matte lipsticks L’Orèal Paris also launched the Extraordinare Mat Lip colors in the Star Collection. These are liquid lipsticks formulas with a total of 5 shades – Sonam’s, Fan Bingbing’s, Gong Li’s, Julianne’s and Katrina’s pink. Today I am going to talk about the L’Orèal Paris La Vie En Rose Extraordinare Mat in Sonam.
About The Looks!
The packaging of the moist matte lipsticks and the extraordinare lip colors is almost the same with the difference being the case. The Extraordinare Mat lip colors come in a lip gloss like packaging with a doe foot applicator wand. The case is in black color with lovely matte finish. On the cap the name of the collection and the star’s name is printed. There is an oblong slit with a transparent glass through which you can see the color of the shade. I really love this packaging!! Its beautiful and feels so premium quality!! Love it!!

My experience with the Extraordinare Mat in Sonam’s shade!
This is a very pretty warm pink color!! Absolutely love it!! A bright pink with warm or red undertones, perfect for Indian skin tones. This color can be worn in both spring and winter or even fall as a transition shade! Beautiful color!!
Now we will talk about its formulation and texture. The formula is of a liquid lipstick which is pretty thick. On the arm swatch it will appear sticky or tacky, but on lips it has no stickiness at all. It feels creamy with a glossy shine for about an hour, gradually fading into a velvet matte finish. It keeps the lips soft and hydrated all throughout the wear time! I really wish that it could dry into velvet matte finish sooner than it does, as one hour is a little too long. I don’t mind the glossy shine as it does not feel like gloss and the color is super beautiful!
Pigmentation is bang on!! Good job by L’Orèal Paris on making such pigmented formulas! Just one layer of this liquid lip color and you are good to go!!
Lasting power is also great! I wore it with meals and drinks and it did not budge away. I don’t lick my lips, until I really need to, so the lip color stays on me for a little longer. I would say it will last roughly for about 5-6 hours depending on the quantity and the kind of meals or drinks you take. The lip color does bleed a little so you would need a lip liner underneath to prevent the same.
I freaking LOVE this color!!!! Its a gorgeous bright pink shade with warm undertones perfect for us Indians!! I don’t mind the shine as well, though it goes away after an hour approximately and finishes into velvet matte texture. Super soft on lips, hydrating, smooth and non-streaky formula!! I LOVE IT!! Highly recommended this shade to everyone!!
