L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks

Hello there!

These lipsticks have become very popular in the blogging world so I decided I wanted to give them a go. Superdrug are doing a 3 for 2 offer on the L'Oreal products at the moment so I bought two of there lipsticks (Cheeky Magenta and Lovely Rose) from the fairly new range called L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipsticks and I got one of their nail polishes (Perle De Jade).

I wouldn't even really describe these as lipsticks to be honest because they are so sheer and 'balmy' in texture. The idea is that the lipstick 'caresses your lips' and acts as a very soft lipstick. They wouldn't normally be my cup of tea as I normally go for a very full covering, matte lipstick but I really like these shades.

The lipsticks aren't overly pigmented and they are fairly shiny/glossy which is nice for me to have a change for once. They are pretty pricey, in my opinion at £7.99 so I wouldn't rush out and buy them if there wasn't an offer on.

I will get on and show you them...


The packaging is alright but not overly pretty.
I think it looks pretty cheap for the price tag too.

CHEEKY MAGENTA
This shade is probably my favourite out of the two as I do like my bright lipsticks. I would say it is a bright pink with a slight blue/purple tone to it. I felt like I could get pretty good coverage with this one as the moisturising texture of the lipsticks with a great touch for me. I really like this lipstick and it will become one of my firm favourites.

LOVELY ROSE
This is the far lighter colour and it definately has less coverage than Cheeky Magenta so I felt like I had to layer it up quite a bit. I was a bit unsure about this colour to start with as it seems quite shimmery and too glossy for me but the more I wear it the more I like it. I have also discovered that a mix between the two shades is lovely.

Overall I do really like these lipsticks but I would say to anyone who likes a full covering, matte lipstick, to stay away from these as they seem more like balms or glosses to me. I think they are lovely light lipsticks for the spring and I can't wait to wear them more!

I hope you've enjoyed this post. Have any of you tried these or wanted to?
