L’oréal Rouge Caresse lipstick in 06 APHRODITE SCARLET - Review, Swatch & LOTD

Hola beauties,

I went to the health and glow outlet near my home for buying my mummy’s hair color. And there, much to my delight, I saw the newly launched L’Oréal Rouge Caresse lipsticks. The SA swatched the new tester pieces and I finally got the shade 06 APHRODITE SCARLET.

What L’Oréal Paris says about their Rouge Caresse Lipsticks:

The Rouge Caresse lipstick has a flutter of kissable, soft, colour. Its delicate texture glides onto lips creating a veil of colour with a luminous shine. It adds a desired pop of color with a meltingly soft application.

The lipstick contains light oils, crystalline wax, transparent blenders and pearl pigments that deliver true color with a weight-less comfort.

 My Experience

Packing: Comes in a pretty plastic silver bullet with a transparent cap. The end of the cap is color coded in order to aid in easy identification. Travel friendly and serves the purpose. Nothing fancy.

Color: The moment I saw the bullet, it reminded me of colorbar pink lady. It is a neon pink nail color. Don’t worry this one is not even remotely neon. It is a pretty rosy pink color. I have moderately pigmented lips and on my lips it is a pretty MLBB pink shade. I am using it as an everyday lip color. It looks extremely natural on me. It just adds a nice flush to my lips.

Texture: Texture of this lipstick is more of a lip balm. It does not feel heavy or sticky. It imparts a sheer hydrating color.

Pigmentation: The color is buildable and with three swipes, it gets decently opaque. This one does not go completely opaque. Texture wise, this lipstick reminds me of the Chanel rogue coco shine range.

One thing I noticed with these lipsticks is that the color gets intensified after few minutes of application.

Application: It glides on my lips and it does not fill in the lines. Though it appears to be filling the lip lines, after a few minutes, the color kind of fuses together and looks very appealing.

It does not have any bothering fragrance.

This shade has very minute, thickly packed silver shimmer that does not look obvious at all. It reflects the light wonderfully and imparts that healthy shine.

Staying power: As I mentioned earlier, the color intensifies after couple of minutes and stays put for about 4 hours on my lips. Unlike other creamy lipsticks, the moisturizing factor stays throughout the wear time and when it wears off, it leaves a subtle tint behind.

It does not bleed. Due to its texture, it does transfer.

Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating
I am a fan of such sheer, light moisturising lipsticks. This one looks very natural, almost as if I haven't worn any lip product on. I can see myself buying few brighter shades from this range in future. If you are a fan of such texture, go and grab one!
