If you’re a fan of sheer, light-weight lip colors, this post is just for you! I absolutely love the L’Oreal Paris Caresse range – both Shine Caresse and Rouge Caresse. I have previously reviewed both and today I have 4 more shades to show you from the Rouge Caresse lipstick range –
Dating Coral is a sheer peachy coral that gives a my-lips-but-peachier look. Its not the most exciting color as its a bit light for my medium skin and pigmented lips. Would only recommend this for lighter skin tones. Being a lighter shade, staying power is low.
Aphrodite Scarlet is a pretty berry pink with a little shimmer (non-gritty) – also on the sheerer side but gives about medium coverage when layered. I do like this one a lot on my complexion, it brightens up my face without stealing the show. Great for low key makeup days! Being one of the medium shades, staying power is okay (about 3 hours with light staining, would need reapplication after a meal though!).
Rock ‘N Mauve* is a lilac-y cool mauve shade – not a personal favorite as it doesn’t do much for my complexion. But if you’re into purply lip colors – this one is lovely and very wearable! I sometimes throw on a pink gloss on top of this to make it more flattering on me. This one also gives medium pigmentation when layered. Being one of the medium shades, staying power is okay (about 3 hours with light staining, would need reapplication after a meal though!).
Hypnotic Red* is a lovely sheer cherry red and possibly my favorite out of this bunch! I think this one would be flattering across complexions and being a darker shade, shows up well on pigmented lips too. Also gives medium coverage in 2 swipes. Being one of the deeper shades, staying power is fairly good (about 3.5-4 hours with light staining, might need reapplication after a meal though!).
The Rouge Caresse formula is very light weight on the lips, has the feel of a tinted balm but with more color and better staying power. I personally like this kind of formula for everyday wear as it gives a healthy look to the lips and the color isn’t too intense. Its hydrating as well and quite forgiving on the lips. The only downside is that some of the lighter shades from this range would not show up very well on pigmented lips but the brighter/deeper shades are lovely! Coming from L’Oreal, the price point of Rs 499 is quite nice too! You can read a detailed review of the shade Impulsive Fuchsia HERE.
