L'oreal Caresse Lipsticks

Hey everyone apologies for being gone for over a month, I just didn't feel like blogging for some reason I was getting highly obsessed with watching youtube vids and reading other blogs that I neglected my own!! I'm thinking of doing a post about some of my fave blogs and youtubers if anyone is interested let me know.  Anways onto my review on the new L'oreal Caresse Lipsticks!  Trying to do a new kinda layout for reviews so if you like this format let me now or anyway I can make it better :)

L'oreal Caresse Lipsticks


About

So L'oreal were very quite releasing these, Revlon Lip Butters came out round the same time and there was alot of hype around these before they were released.  Since I bought mine I have seen alot more about them and I have since bought 2 more so I have 3 in Total.  

01 Fashionista Pink 
03 Lovely Rose
301 Dating Coral

Packaging

The packaging is like a clear capsule nice and sleek however when you first start using it the lipstick sticks slighly up so you have to be careful putting on the lid not to shove it into lipstick which I done a few times..

Pros

Lovely Formula nice and moisturising
Doesn't dry your lips
Glossy so no need for lip gloss however I do find a clear lipgloss makes this stay on longer
You do get a nice bit of product

Cons

Expenisive for drugstore brand I will explain more under Price
Seems to be a shortage of testers for some reason in both Boots and Superdrug dunno if this the shops fault or L'oreal

Price

€12.19 in Boots at the moment on offer 2 for €21 on selected L'oreal 
€9.95 in Superdrug on offer buy 1 get 2nd half price on all L'oreal
These are expensive but cheaper in Superdrug and that is a pretty good offer I bought my first one faashionista pink in Boots last month when they had 3 for 2 offer on, then more recently I bought dating coral and lovely rose in Superdrug when I saw they were buy 1 get 2nd half price.

Pigmentation 

These are quite sheer but I do personally really like this about them as the do come in a nice selection of colours but definitely test them don't go by just looking at the lipstick.

Overall Verdict

I love these they suit my lips so well I have chapped lips and they dont highlight this at all i'm really obssessed at the moment with these my next one I want is impulsive fushia this looks really nice and I dont have anything like this but I will wait a while I think I have enough for now!!

I can't find these on the Superdug website yet.


I also created a Facebook page for my blog if you would like to like it you would make my day :)
