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?

    Just literally did a post featuring the Caresse Lippies. I really want Cheeky Magenta but my Boots always seems to be sold out of them, grr!

    Such a pretty colour!

    This colour is so gorgeous! x

    This looks like such a gorgeous colour. I haven't bought any L'oreal Caresse lipsticks yet, but after seeing this post I definitely want this colour now! I have a Revlon lip butter, but I've read quite a few comparisons and most people are leaning towards to Caresses more! xo

  10. 11th May 2012 / 10:29 pm

    That color is amaZing and moisturizing.

  11. 11th May 2012 / 10:32 pm

    Such a pretty shade ! It looks really nice on you ! xx


  12. 11th May 2012 / 11:28 pm

    I haven't tried any of these yet but definitely going to check them out next time I'm in boots. I love the finish on them and this colour is so pretty πŸ™‚ xx

  13. 11th May 2012 / 11:36 pm

    I have this but somehow it looks so much nicer on you… *sobs* haha!


  14. 12th May 2012 / 12:40 am

    This looks stunning on your lips, I definitely need this in my collection!X

  15. 12th May 2012 / 2:22 am

    This color looks gorgeous on you! I can't wait till they bring them out in the US!

    I HATE it when people open lipsticks & try them out without buying them! That kept happening to me when the Revlon Lip Butters first came out. It drove me crazy!

    This sounds even more appealing than the Revlon Lip Butters.

    I have Cheeky Magenta and Dating Coral and I love them both so maybe you should try Dating Coral? I too am on the lookout for Lovely Rose but I have the same problem as you every time I go in to Boots the lipstick section is full of used lipsticks, just use the testers for gods sake! lol so annoying! πŸ™‚ xx

  20. 12th May 2012 / 7:41 am

    Pretty! I have dating coral too and it is very nice x

  21. 12th May 2012 / 8:39 am

    These are my favourite types of colours! Looks like a lovely lippy x

    I'm constantly tempted by these every time I pass the L'Oreal stands in Boots and Superdrug but I'm just not sold yet…. x

  31. 12th May 2012 / 7:14 pm

    Omgosh I NEED this colour! It's so hard to find a lip balm/lipstick with decent pigmentation but this one sounds perfect!

  33. 13th May 2012 / 10:41 am

    this is my favorite lipstick, he's so creamy and colorfull!
    good choice!

  34. 13th May 2012 / 12:03 pm

    I'm in love with these – and far prefer them to the Revlon lip butters. I've bought 4 already!!! I think living out in the sticks helps sometimes – these haven't been sold out at all in my local Boots. My favourite is the cheeky magenta – so, so, so, so gorgeous. Nude ingenue is the one I reach for at work. It makes my lips look perfected and is so easy to apply (even without a mirror). xo

  35. 14th May 2012 / 1:30 pm

    Grr – I know what you mean about the gross Loreal stand in Boots that has always has EVERY lipstick swatched and smudged. So annoying and still on a mission to find Dating Coral. That colour looks lovely though!! xx
