L'oreal Shine Caresse Review - Juliet Shade

Monday, June 03, 2013Traveliztera

Drugstore lipsticks time! 

Today, it's all about L'oreal 's Shine Caresse!

According to L'oreal, this product is: "The next generation lip colour, that combines the texture & shine of a gloss with the long wear of a stain. Delivering a lasting colour with a subtle glossy shine."

The reason why I'm starting to like this product is because I used to like long-wearing lip colors. However, the problem is, they leave my lips dry and flaky, which makes me apply lip moisturisers every now and then, and reapply the lip color in-between as well, since the colored lip skin bits would peel off (ewww too much info? lol!).

Of course, the main reason why I like long-wearing lip colors is because I am not really a fan of retouches. So, knowing that I still have to retouch due to the intense drying effect of long-wearing lip colors, I decided to just stay to tinted lip balms, since it's going to end up with retouches anyway.

Hassle much for a girl who dislikes retouches!

Yes, I rarely retouch, so by the end of the day, you'll see my haggard face.

Look, I know it's good to be real, but... there's a difference between looking real and looking fresh. LOL. So yes, I know, I know... I should opt for the latter. 

Well... L'oreal saved the day! I found an awesome product that is long-wearing, and absolutely kept my lips soft and looking fresh throughout the day.

L'oreal Shine Caresse is basically of lip gloss consistency with the combined power of a lip tint and a moisturiser. 

So far, my lips haven't gone dry yet. Compared to other brands and kinds of long-wearing lip colours I have used, this one kept my lips moisturised for the longest period of time--for now. If they do dry in the future, at least I know that the effect took some time, unlike other brands which would dry my lips by the end of the day. I heard that it's similar to a certain line of products by YSL, so I would have to try that out too some time later. For now, let's stick to this.

I love the range of colors of this product, but Juliet is my favorite, because the shade is natural and innocent.

In the picture below, I didn't really get to dab on a lot of the product, but still, it gave a really nice shade of pink. If I placed some more, it would have turned more red.

My favorite part of this product is the wand. It makes applications easier, and has greater lip coverage.

Overall, Shine Caresse is a good alternative to expensive lip products. Here are the reasons why I think so:

  • It has long-staying power, while keeping the lips soft and shiny.
  • Retouching will be decreased, but in my case, I doubt I'll still retouch since I did mention I dislike retouching.
  • Beautiful range of colors.
  • Wand offers easy application and wide coverage.
  • Shades can be adjusted by the amount applied.
