L'oreal Caresse Lipsticks Review ♥

Finally a high street brand has done it... a sheer super moisturising lipstick with a gorgeous array of colours.

L'oreal i really do applaud you as these are gorgeous!!

I am a true high street/drugstore make-up girl at heart. Nothing pleases me more than walking into Superdrug or Boots and browsing all the brands at my own leisure without a sale assistant hovering my shoulders...does anyone else find it super annoying? Don't get me wrong i do love lots of high end make-up but honestly i really do enjoy drugstore shopping so much more so i tend to stay clear of department store counters unless i really do need something.

Whilst on a recent trip to Superdrug i spotted a new range of lipsticks...

L'oreal Caresse Lipsticks with a range of 10 colours.

What totally lured me in was the packaging and the range of colours..i really do love packaging.

I got...

03 Lovely Rose
501 Nude Ingenue
101 Tempting Lilac

These lipsticks are very sheer but still give off a nice wash of colour. They are very moisturising and have a gel like texture. They remind me a little of the Revlon Lip Butters but in more luxurious packaging and have more of a lipstick feel than a lip butter feel. I love that they are colour coded with the 'families' on the top of the packaging with a bright pink, gold and deep purple metal finish it really adds something different. You can also slightly see the colour through the packaging which always helps when purchasing.

I have been obsessed with 'Lovely Rose' and have worn it during the day most days since i got it. Its the most perfect rose pink and keeps my lips moisturised all day. In the bullet the colour looks quick bright and deep but as the lipsticks are so creamy and sheer the colour pay off is just perfect to give a nice flush rose pink colour.

I did pick 3 day time colours so 'Tempting Lilac' is a my lips but better colour and 'Nude Ingenue' is a lovely 'grown up nude' its much more of a flat brown nude so doesn't wash your lips out completely.

There are some stunning bright colours in the range which i am definitely going to have to pick up next time i am in Superdrug as they will be perfect for the summer hot pink and hot coral is just right up my street. Now i know how much i love these lipsticks i can venture into brighter fun colours so watch this space.

These retail for £7.99 and are available now from any L'oreal counter.
