L’oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lipgloss Review

Lip products are getting more and more complicated everyday dont you think? It used to be simple earlier- lipstick- lipgloss-lip pencil. Now we have gloss stains, and balm stains, and chubby sticks, and lip paints, and lip inflators, and these Loreal paris Shine Caresse Lipglosses which claim to be sort of a cross between a Gloss and a Stain. I got to try out two of these- Juliete and Eve…lets see how they did?

Juliette is an orangey red that is bright, but has warm undertones so it works with Indian skintones. Eve is more of a magenta with cooler undertones so will flatter paler, cool toned skin.

Regarding the texture and product

So the thing is, these are very very thin, I mean it almost feels like just water on your lips when you apply them and they have a stain like quality for sure as they dry. It takes about two swipes to get you good color payoff, and even though they feel weightless they are very good in the payoff department.

However the stain has a tendency to be uneven, and if you already have pigmented lips thats not a very becoming sight. I dont particularly love how they look on me as I have a very pigmented upper lip. Having said that- these are moisturizing, they last super long and feel completely weightless so a definite must have for your summer bag if you dont care about these issues above.

I like the colors these come in- the softer , peachier colors infact look very pretty and the wand makes application easy. They do smell kind of wierd though – almost hospital like which is a bit of a turn off.

Pros of Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lipglosses

Incredibly Lightweight

Easy to Apply Applicator

Good Pigmentation

Nice glossy finish which is a cross between a balm and a stain

Lasts long

Cons of Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lipglosses

Apply unevenly and girls with pigmented lips will not enjoy how they look on them

Smell hospitally!


Verdict: B+

Price: 499 for 6ml

Recommendation: There are a lot of fantastic things about the Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lipglosses- they are soo thin, and lightweight and feel like nothing while still giving good solid color payoff. They give a healthy, glossy look to the lips and do give a stained effect and last long. However, they can apply unevenly and for girls with pigmented lips they may not work as well (I know my upper lip looks a bit off with these on) , plus they have a peculiar smell on them which I dont love.

Juliette and Eve look very similar. But love the glass like finish.


mily May 1, 2014 at 12:24 pm

oh..yes it does look a bit uneven…i have bella which is a beautiful everyday shade but i dont have pigmented lips so maybe thats why..they stay for really long!


Shruti May 1, 2014 at 12:27 pm

not a lot of difference between the two but I’m liking Juliette (and the name)! How is the wand like?


Xuvious May 1, 2014 at 12:29 pm

I like Juliette but I usually need 2-3 coats to get it to look even. :)


Shreya May 1, 2014 at 12:48 pm

Brilliantly reviewed dear . I totally agree with the pros and cons. Both the shades look great on you

Nice shade.. I really liked their cute little soft applicator and packaging looks that of a high end brand


Rashmi May 1, 2014 at 12:54 pm

Pretty shades but both the shades looks very similar…:-)


Sunandha May 1, 2014 at 1:37 pm

I was planning to buy Juliette and ego . . .ve but I guess I will give it a go . . .

U gt any idea for a fuschia lip gloss ????


mehak May 1, 2014 at 2:25 pm

krithi May 1, 2014 at 2:08 pm

i like these
these are better than maybelline lip polish …may be personal choice


Tee May 1, 2014 at 3:21 pm

ditto, I have eve and and bella, and I love them to the core, its so light weight.. and somehow I have not had the uneven application prob yet. way better than maybelline polishes


mehak May 1, 2014 at 6:04 pm

yup i know..people love these..i seem to be in the minority :)

How are they compared to the Maybelline lip-stains? I have two of them, and although I use them every now and then, they can get quite drying.


laks May 1, 2014 at 3:42 pm

Lovely shades. I think i love Juliette one percent more :D


glitter and makeup May 1, 2014 at 4:59 pm

im thinking of buying some shades from this line…looking for sumthn in pink…


nisha@pinktrends May 2, 2014 at 12:20 am

I somehow didn’t like the look when applied..the packaging looks nice though.


Rashi @sincerelylazy May 2, 2014 at 1:05 am

Hmm, so these are not sticky?! I think I’ll finally go and buy Bella then.


Embellished May 2, 2014 at 1:35 am

Aw these had such good reviews! But I’m glad I read this. This is definitely not for me.


Swati May 2, 2014 at 1:55 am

It smelt a bit like roses/rosewater kinds to me.. is my olfactory sense off? I just have Bella so far and I really like it, it goes quite even on me and I haven’t faced any such problems yet. But I thought that these two shades would, since they are more pigmented.


Sherin May 2, 2014 at 9:03 am

I have this in color venus and i absolutely love it. It is very very moisturizing and long staying for my dry lips


Shailja@BeABrideEveryday May 2, 2014 at 10:41 am

Very nicely reviewed Mehak.. I might give them a pass then.. earlier I was planning to buy them !


aisha May 2, 2014 at 11:50 am

will try this shades



Priyanjana May 3, 2014 at 1:36 pm

I love this color on you


Rajvi May 3, 2014 at 2:24 pm

not too impressive..looks like a version of maybelline lip polishes


coralcrue May 3, 2014 at 5:29 pm

the thing i like is that it feels like one’s not wearing anything, will check it out for this quality. nicely reviewed, Mehak :)


Nivedita May 5, 2014 at 1:11 am

Me wants!! I am liking the affordable range of the Caresse range. I could just wear a lipliner underneath. Wouldn;t that take care of uneven pigmented lips?
