L’oreal Colour Riche Caresse- Velvety Fuchsia #173

So how about a simple to the point review on this?

This is basically L’oreal’s second attempt at creating a Revlon Lip Butter. I think that the Balm’s that L’oreal came out with months ago were nice enough but most of the reviews for them talk about the lack of pigmentation. The ones I own barely have any color to them which is fine but when something else comes out at the drugstore that is drenched with color, the colorless balm can’t help but fall way behind. L’oreal hasn’t perfected the smoothness of the color infusion though. Revlon Lip Butters are much smoother color wise. It’s a slight difference though. Nothing major but I easily mistake Lip Butters for Lipstick because the color and texture is so seemless. These L’oreal Caresse Sticks still feel like a balm to me.

But L’oreal has finally made a Lip Butter they can slap their name on here. I love it. I have no loyalty though so I’ll just show you the pictures I took and tell you to look out for these.

















I really like both of the shades that I got. If this is a color that you love you may be wondering if its similar to Revlon’s Lollipop Lip Butter. I was wondering the SAME thing. Here’s a look at both swatched.

They aren’t the same but they are quite similar. I am so glad that I picked this up. It’s going in my purse. The other shade that I got is red and I’ll try to post pictures on that and comparison’s with the red Revlon Lip Butter’s that I have if you like.

This retails for under $10 so take a look at the shades available and see if there is something you can get some use out of. I picked up my two shades at Target.

    Crystal, Have you ever tried L’Oreal’s Colour Riche lipcolor in “Seafleur?” It is a gorgeous fuchsia. I have worn this on and off for @15 years. It is so pretty!!! I’m sure you would love that one as well.
