L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Gloss – Orange Tempo Review

Hello Beautifuls :))

Hope all of you are enjoying and preparing for upcoming festivals and lovely events! We are also preparing for our Valentine’s get together at Aadya’s playschool this weekend, let’s see how it goes at “Sweetheart Breakfast” event 😛 I wonder when the gathering is for kiddos, the name of the event is super romantic 😀 Anyway, let’s get started with my second most favorite shade from extraordinaire, a super hot bright mandarin orange gloss called “Orange Tempo.” Please read on to know why I love it!



$9.99 for 0.18 Fl oz (5.5 ml), I got it for $7.97 each.

Product Description:

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 come in golden packaging; however, its totally different in shape from other L’Oreal packaging. At first, it may look like a lipstick packaging, just a bit fat and small with twist over cap.  The whole packaging is sturdy, opaque except for a broad transparent oval patch on the front tube of the gloss which gives a clear idea of the shade inside.  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 Gloss – Orange Tempo:

First of all, I would thank you all for motivating me and cheering me up on my small efforts and secondly for inspiring me to try new shades apart from my forte which were never in my color spectrum earlier.  I have been loving subtle and bright oranges, corals all of a sudden and the consequences are well visible 😛 Talking about this shade – “Orange Tempo,” it is a deep yet bright mandarin orange gloss with subtle shimmer which is not over the top.  It absolutely compliments my skin tone and hence I believe it will suit many Indian fair/medium skin tones and all age groups.  I must say the pigmentation is slightly deep when compared to to Coral Encore.  But it is definitely different from what we see in the packaging.  I am really confused as from the packaging, it seems like a deep orangish coral sometimes and the next day, it looks like mandarin orange.  But if you see the swatches, you may get a clear idea that it is a real mandarin orange gloss.



I also love it because it gives a semi-opaque color payoff on my lips in just 1-2 swipes. I am very sure it will work well on pigmented lips because I do have slight patchy pigmentation on both the left and right corners of my lips and it covers those patches fairly with semi translucent finishing on my lips. However, I feel that the color pay off varies from person to person depending upon their natural lip color. I also love it because it gives a really juicy luxurious finishing apart from hydrating and smoothing my lip texture. It glides very smoothly on to the lip’s surface provided the lips are soft; however, it will work fine on dry lips unless they are chapped or scaly.


I love the formula of these glosses.  They are non sticky yet creamy, juicy with sheer texture. No matter how many times I swipe it on my lips, it will never bleed, feather or settle down on my lip’s crevices. I mostly love to wear it with my oranges outfits and black kurti for that absolute pop of color.  It is good to see that it comes off smoothly in one stroke without tugging or pulling with a damp napkin or cloth.


The shine and pigmentation stays on my lips for as long as 4-6 hours with occasional water/tea sips. It doesn’t survive longer after heavy meals and we may need touch-ups, but it is fine as it hardly leaves any stain other than subtle sparkles and soft lips with orange sheen. Overall, it is worth trying and I feel that this shade more or less is similar to Maybelline’s Mandarin Rapture Lip Polish, but the texture and pigmentation is slightly better than that.


Summing up the pros and cons:

Pros of L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Gloss – Orange Tempo:

  • A juicy, creamy lip gloss formulated with micro oils and intense pigmentation and high shine.
  • A bright mandarin orange gloss with subtle shimmer, apt for any day time get together or evening parties.
  • The gloss is so subtle in spite of sparkles that one can wear it on a daily basis, just for shopping or while dining out casually.
  • The shade will work for most fair/medium Indian skin tones.
  • Gives a semi-opaque pigmentation in just 1-2 swipe, hence I am sure it will work well on pigmented lips.
  • It does not leave any stubborn stain after fading away.
  • It manages to stay for 4-6 hours with light snacks and water/tea sips, though it may fade away once we rinse off or wipe our mouth.
  • Does not bleed or feather, does not settle into the fine lines.
  • It will work well on dry lips provided they are not chapped.
  • Imparts juicy shine and keeps lips hydrated.
  • Simple yet classy packaging, travel friendly, not easily breakable even after your kid throws it from the second floor 😛



Cons of L’Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Lip Gloss – Orange Tempo:

  • It does transfer and leaves the marks on cups and stuff, though that may not effect its lasting power.
  • It wouldn’t work as a lip balm and heal dry and chapped lips, wear it over clean and well scrubbed lips.

Apart from some minor flaws, I don’t have any major complaints from extraordinaire in general.  I am loving the texture and color payoff of these glosses except for a few shades which are tricky and beyond my comfort zone.  I just realized that extraordinaire is slightly more pigmented than Maybelline lip polishes and their shine stays as long as the gloss stays on the lips, hence I am totally loving extraordinaire 😀 How about you gals, would you like to give these a try?

Gals, you won’t believe, when I was clicking pictures for IMBB, my daughter came running and started posing for pictures like how I do with pouts 😛 for LOTDs.  Cany you see, she is lip swatching in one of the pics 😀
