L'Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick Aphrodite Scarlet Review L’Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick in Aphrodite Scarlet: Swatches & Review

Product Description: Don’t just stroke your lips, Caresse them. Lips say yes to this Caresse. A flutter of kissably soft light-weight feeling colour. Its delicate texture glides onto lips creating a veil of color with a luminous shine. Available in 12 bright and eye catching shades.

My Review

A while back L’Oreal had launched these lipsticks along with the rouge caress lip stains. The shade Aphrodite Scarlet is a medium warm pink color with red undertones to it- the perfect watermelon pink! The color is extremely flattering and will look good on almost anyone. It brightens up my face in a subtle way making it suitable for everyday wear as well. It has some fine shimmers in it but they are hardly noticeable on application and just impart a slight sheen and glossy finish.

The texture is extremely lightweight, thin and non-sticky very much similar to tinted lip balms. It glides very smoothly on lips and is quite hydrating initially but once the glossiness fades my lips do feel dry after about two hours of wear, I expected it to perform better here but anyways I use a lip balm before application to avoid that.  The lipstick applies quite sheer in a single swipe and gives a nice wash of color but can easily be built up for more pigmentation. Although three to four swipes give quite good color payoff, it does not have enough opacity to cover pigmented lips completely and hence some can find it too sheer for their liking.

It does not settle into lines much, but on those days when my lips feel dry or flaky it does emphasize them but lightly exfoliating lips before application solves that. Being a sheer lipstick it last for around 3- 4 hours on me and little less with snacks in between. It fades evenly and leaves behind a light stain.

The lipstick comes in a glossy silver tube with transparent outer packaging cap and has a color coded label at the bottom, the packaging is sturdy and cap fits tightly.

Recommendation: I adore this color It works for an everyday pop of color as well can be built up for desired pigmentation, but still feels so lightweight and wears pretty well. If you have non-pigmented lips then you will really enjoy wearing this one for the price it is definitely worth a try!

Please stop using L’Oreal Paris products.They are funding the zionists with free soaps and deodorants who are killing innocent people in Gaza.
