Color Caresse is a new addition to the Color Riche family and it's a good one. Called Luminous Lipcolor, these have the look and feel of a high end lipstick. I love when that happens. The pigment here is good , not sheer and the formula hugs the curve of your lips. To me the very best lipsticks do that .
There is shine , but not gloss level shine. The formula is very moisturizing and creamy , but light, making these great for the upcoming cold months. L'Oreal claims 6 hours of hydration with Color Caresse.
If you are wondering what the difference might be between Color Caresse and Color Riche Balm- Color Riche Balm has much sheerer pigments but also plenty of moisture. Even the deeper shades in the balm are more sheer. They are a tinted balm vs. a lipstick. The balm, believe it or not, is also a heavier formula. Color Caresse is much lighter , but both are great.
Shown are Sunset Angora ( coral- punchy pink, more pink than it looks), Cotton Pink ( a light baby pink, like cotton candy) and Sheer Linen ( a nude with pink tones).
L'Oreal Color Caresse are available now in 16 shades.
