How are you doing today gals? We are enjoying (please read scared of :P) Aadya’s new tantrums. Now, she is a silent player who often wins the game. I cannot imagine pin drop silence at home especially when Aadya is awake and I am not able to track her moves. I truly believe that silence is golden unless you have kids, then it is suspicious! This holds true for my kid, her silence means a mess created in the kitchen or washroom. We cannot leave her unattended even for a minute for those few minutes might be dangerous for us. Recently, we both were discussing parenting tips and totally forgot that she had sneaked into the washroom. As usual, before we could sense a foul play, she jumped into the middle of our discussion with my half bitten mascara wand in one hand and hubby’s brand new shaving cream in another. Forget about parenting, we both came into action while she was running as fast as she could making a trail of shaving cream from one room to another. Finally, we gave up and sat down to let her finish the mess and as usual she won the game 😛 I still wonder how we cleaned up and slept like drunkards that day! We are planning to get a monitor for our washroom and kitchen soon! Anyway, let me share my today’s goodie with you all which is my last but definitely not the least favorite gloss from the “L’Oreal Extraordinaire” series. So please read on further to explore L’Oreal Extraordinaire in the shade “Rouge Allegro.”
$9.99 for 0.18 Fl oz (5.5 ml), I got it for $ 7.97 each.

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. Use the wand to apply starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to outer edges of your lips, following the contour of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.
These gorgeous lip glosses are packed inside as usual; opaque, sturdy, golden twist over packaging with a broad transparent oval patch on the front tube of gloss which gives a clear idea of the shade inside and it is the only difference in individual shade packaging. Overall, a simple yet stylo, classy packaging with better creamy formula as compared to their “Caresse Wet Shine” stain. The smell is more or less similar to “Caresse Wet Shine Stain.”
My Experience with L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Color – Rouge Allegro:
Ever since L’Oreal launched these gorgeous lip colors, I was waiting to get hold of my favorite red and pink shades from their collection as I am crazy about them. This Rouge Allegro was love at first sight. I fell in love with this pinkish red glossy shimmery shade at the counter itself. It is a perfect blend of red and pink gloss with hint of shimmer which instantly boosts up my face and spirit. I believe it will compliment every fair/medium skin tone beauty with pink undertones; however, I have subtle yellow undertones and this shade totally compliments my skin tone.
I love it for its sheer to medium color pay off which gives a soft touch to my face with pinkish red pigmentation. I need just one swipe to build up semi-sheer pigmented glossy finishing on my lips which would partially cover blemishes on my lips though. In 2-3 swipes, it does helps in hiding those spots without settling in or feathering on my lips up to a good extent, but I can still figure out my scars. It is slightly runny and lightweight as compared to the other balms, hence I doubt it might bleed on multiple swipes.
Considering its sheer to medium coverage on lips, I do not feel it is ideal for pigmented lips though it helps in concealing scars up to a good extent, but not completely. No matter how many times I swipe it, I see a translucent, semi-sheer pigmented sheen on my lips which is undoubtedly gorgeous, but not enough for pigmented lips. I wonder if it has the same creamy juicy texture and hydrating qualities like other extraordinaire balms except for the fact that it hardly stays for more than 3-4 hours on my lips with occasional water sips and it completely fades away after one heavy meal leaving behind slightly red pinkish sheen which fades within an hour or so. Considering its average staying power and coverage, I would still love to get it again and again for this is a must-have red for all weathers, not too sticky or bold. It gives such a soft effect to the face. If you are a sucker for reds like me, but blessed with non-pigmented lips and wouldn’t mind touch ups more often, then you need to check it out!
Let’s sum up the pros and cons:
Pros of L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Color – Rouge Allegro:
- A juicy, creamy pinkish red balm with a hint of soft shimmer that’s hardly noticeable.
- Formulated with micro-oils, intense pigmentation and high shine.
- Instantly brightens up face and mood.
- This particular glossy balm is slightly runny and feels really light on the lips.
- Super creamy texture and hydrating qualities like any extraordinaire lip balm.
- This particular gloss gives semi sheer-medium coverage with translucent juicy finishing on my lips.
- It may conceal pigmentation on multiple swipes, but I can still notice them.
- An ideal red for all fair/medium skin tones with yellow or pink undertones.
- It gives buildable color and pigmentation in just one swipe.
- It does have sparkles yet it gives a soft glow and soft touch to my face, apt for summers.
- A red glossy balm which is not too bold; wearable for any age group.
- Travel friendly, classic packaging at a decent price.
Cons of L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Color – Rouge Allegro:
- It hardly survives for 3-4 hours without heavy meals.
- It comes off completely after one heavy meal leaving behind a soft red stain which fades away within an hour or so.
- It does transfer and might bleed on multiple swipes.
- It may not be ideal for pigmented lips as it gives semi sheer translucent finishing.
Even with the above-mentioned cons, I still love it and might get it again and again for it is such a soft and bright red gloss which is totally going to rock summers. I am really interested to wear it with all my sheer maxi dresses this summer. What are you waiting for gals? Just check it out and get it before summers arrive and before it gets sold out :))
Hahh, Aadya loves to mess up with my stuff while I doubt her daddy provokes and secretly helps her 😛 She finished off my mascara and kajal while daddy clicked her shots…grrrrr!
