L'oreal L'extraordinaire Liquid Lipsticks

I've seen a lot of great things being said about the L'oreal L'extraordinaire Liquid Lipsticks (well isn't that a tongue twister) so when Boots had one of their well loved offers on I snagged a few to try out.

A lot of the reviews of these lipsticks/lipglosses is that they have amazing durability and wear like a lipstick. I'm not too sure whether I agree with this yet or not, I mean; they apply like a lipgloss, have the shine of a lipgloss and in my opinion have the same kind of stick texture that a lipgloss has. So why are we calling them lipsticks?

There are only a few colours available currently, a selection of nude based colours and a selection of brighter red based colours. The two shades I have are 600 Nude Vibrato and 500 Molto Mauve; Nude Vibrato is one of those colours you can wear everyday with any kind of look, even though it looks slightly more coral from the outside, and for many people it's going to be a "my lips but better" colour. However, for me, Molto Mauve is nearer my lip colour and is definitely my favourite out of the collection; the colour on the label looks darker than it actually applies as well as being a little pinker on the lips than you would think from looking at it.

As I mentioned, these seem to be loved for their durability and longevity, and again I don't think I can agree 100% with this. I found as the product felt so sticky and present on the lips I was trying to be really careful to keep it on, however even with my carefulness I found I was having to apply another layer after a few hours in order to keep the colour looking as vibrant as after application.

I feel like I want to love them but I'm still in that non-committal phase, maybe if I keep trying I'll change my mind! Has anybody else found that same problems I have or have you loved them from the start?
