REVIEW - L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick - Impulsive Fuschia

Hullo Ladies!

Very recently I picked up my first L'Oreal lipstick.

I've heard lot's about the Rouge Caresse range and how it's always captured and put in the same category as the Revlon lip butters. 

I bought one because at the time they were on offer in ASDA for just £6. 

There was only a 4 to choose from as the L'Oreal range in that ASDA store wasn't very large. 

I picked up Impulsive Fuschia because it looked like the brightest most pigmented of the bunch, which is what I go for when choosing a lipstick. 

I love the packaging. 

It looks more expensive and dare I say it more grown up than the revlon lip butter or the Maybelline Color Sensational's. Although I love the packaging for all of those lipsticks, someone may decide not to buy them because of the way they look. 

My Nan was very dubious about buying her first Revlon Lip Butter because of the packaging. 

I was pleasantly surprised when I first applied this lipstick, after reading many posts I knew that these were considered sheer lipsticks. Luckily, this wasn't super sheer and gave me a lovely bright fuschia that really shows up on my naturally pigmented lip. 

The texture reminds my of a MAC Lustre lipstick, very slick and moisturising. 

You can keep it sheer or build it up for a more opaque look.

The colour is long lasting and gives a lovely even stain.

I have to say I'm very pleased with this lipstick and wouldn't mind picking up some more.

With my experience with the rouge caresse range so far, I'd say it's slightly better than the revlon lip butters in some ways, due to it being very hydrating and a lot more long lasting. I do still love the lip butters,  though some of them are a lot better than others. 

Have you tried the Rouge Caresse lipsticks? What did you think?

I'm in need of colours to try :-)
