L'Oreal Color Caresse Lipstick

 I've known about  the new L'Oreal Color Caressse for a long time ,  long before their release but am only now finally trying them.

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.

I just realised that I don't own any L'Oreal can this be?

Thanks - will check out the nude shades in this range.

That's funny PP, esp. for a beauty person :) But I don't own a lot of them myself. There are some great new ones out. These and the Le Balms are really nice .
