L'OREAL ROUGE CARESSE LIPSTICK



these came out a fair while ago now and i think i snapped this up when it was on an introductory offer in boots. i then chucked it in my lipstick draw and completely forgot about it! i was looking for something else in there the other day and came across it with the plastic still on it so i thought i better give it a go! i couldn't even remember what the colour or consistency of this was like because i swatched it such a long time ago, it was like the excitement of shopping all over again!

the thing i like most about this product is the packaging! i think it's very sleek and elegant, it looks a lot more expensive than it is! i also like that this is the first purpley lipstick that i've found that isn't a ridiculous, bright, nonhuman shade of purple that makes you look a bit silly in my opinion. the purpleness of this is very muted and its more on the pinky/plumby side, i think it could be very flattering on a number of skin tones. more of a summery colour than a winter one i think. 

as i said, i like the colour of this, its an easy to wear, everyday colour, but, i don't really like the finish. its very sheer and glossy, not my thing. i like pigmented, matte lipsticks. this is more like the soap and glory sexy mother pucker gloss sticks, its very glossy and light feeling on the lips. because of this, it isn't very long-wearing either. its a shame, because the colour is really pretty. but if you like the bourjois colour boost lip crayons and the rimmel colour rush balms, i think you'll really like this lipstick.

so this one was a bit of a miss for me, but the packaging and the colour are really lovely! i'm sure i'll use this on those no make up make up days in the warmer, summer months. do you guys like these lipsticks? do you have any favorites?
