L'Oreal Color Caresse Luminous Lipcolor - Violet Chiffon, Cotton Pink

L'Oreal has quite a few interesting new launches for summer, their Color Caresse Luminous Lipcolors ($9.99) being one of them. These lipsticks have a smooth, silky texture and a sheer, glossy finish to them.

do feel that the formula varies from shade to shade. Some of them being more smooth and buttery than the others. Cotton Pink, a cool-toned light pink feels a little less smooth compared to Violet Chiffon, a sheer, mid-tone purple. You won't need a lip balm underneath these but, Cotton Pink does tend to enhance dry lips quite a bit. Violet Chiffon on the other hand is an absolute delight to apply. Although quite sheer, it looks very glossy on its own. These lipsticks also have a super light feel and they don't feel heavy even when I build the color up a little bit. With the glossiness comes the short wear time but, I love sheer lipsticks like these so, I don't mind having to reapply after about 2-3 hours.

Overall, I am quite impressed with the way these feel on my lips and got myself a couple of shades more - Sheer Linen and Rose Taffeta. Both of them feel super light and even more creamier than these two shades so, I'll have the review/swatches up soon! These do have a very faint smell that I don't love but, it is no where near as cloying as the other L'oreal Color Riche lipsticks. I love the sleek golden packaging and think they are pretty amazing for a drugstore product! Absolutely worth trying out a shade or two.

    1. The color is nice but Cotton Pink has a pretty average formula. The other one has a nice formula though :)
