L'oreal Caresse lipstick - 07 Cheeky Magenta £7.99
There is something about the joy of Fridays and a rather welcoming Boots nearby my office which will always result in a lunchtime splurge of some sort, and today it was of the lipstick variety! I have wanted to pick up a few of the L'oreal Caresse lipsticks for a while now but literally every time I went to Boots, I was confronted with a solemn looking lineup of opened and smudged lipsticks. Far from tempting. Today I managed to purchase an untainted one in 07 Cheeky Magenta, although my search for an unused 03 Lovely Rose continues.
The L'oreal Caresse lipsticks have all the pigmentation of a lipstick but the texture and finish of a balm. They glide on beautifully and keep your lips moisturised and lustrous whilst giving them a burst of colour. They have a high gloss finish and a luminous shine without the stickiness of a heavy gloss.
Cheeky Magenta is a clean, bright pink with blue undertones. You can almost see the bluey sheen on my lips as it catches the light. It has a sweet candy smell, can be easily layered for an even more intense colour and the glossy, glistening finish makes your lips feel and look fuller.
I am definitely taken with the L'oreal Caresse lipsticks and think the harmony between balm and lipstick works perfectly. Have you tried any of these lipsticks? Which other shades should I endeavour to get?
