Despite the popularity of Revlon lip butters, I never really got into them myself. I bought one, a pink shade called cupcake, which ended up being totally the wrong colour for me and then went on to melt when I accidentally left it in the sun (whoops). Over the last couple of years pretty much every high street brand has bought out their own version of the lip butter - a cross between a lipstick and a lip balm. However unlike many other bloggers, I haven't been all that excited about them. Having said that, when I saw the L'Oréal Rouge Caresse lipstick something made me want to pick one up.
I would describe the L'Oréal Rouge Caresse lipsticks as being a lot lighter than the Revlon lip butters. They are extremely moisturising and leave your lips looking slightly glossy. In terms of colour, I'd say they are fairly sheer, however you can build the colour up if you wish to. I have found that my L'Oréal Rouge Caresse lipstick isn't particularly long lasting, but it is extremely easy to reapply (without the need for a mirror) so that doesn't bother me too much.
Dating Coral is a lovely orangey pink shade, which I think would suit most complexions. If you apply it sheerly, you will not notice the colour tint too much, however after a few swipes across the lips you will see it start to build up and develop. I love wearing Dating Coral with a gold shimmery eye look when I go out, but it also works as an every day lipstick worn with minimal eye and face makeup.
This lip product is currently one of my favourites as I think it's perfect for winter when my lips could do with a little extra moisture. I'm definitely going to head to Boots and pick up a couple more shades, I already have my eye on 'Sweet Berry.'
The L'Oréal Caresse lipsticks are priced £7.99 and are available from Boots.
