It feels so good to be back on Wise She!! I just started to write for Wise She and soon my exam started . I really missed a lot you guys, I couldn’t keep away for long, even I used to visit Wise She in my study breaks!!
Today I am going to share my views on Loreal Paris Rouge Caresse lipstick in ‘Cheeky Magenta’.
I am full on matte lipstick lover but these cute lippies with vibrant colors made me fall for them. I always wanted but never dared to try blue based Barbie pink shade as I always buy matte lipsticks and because of my warm skin tone (with major yellow undertone) matte Barbie pink makes me look like Nicki Minaj!!
When these cuties were launched, the whole blog-sphere categorized them as sheer, balmy lipsticks so it was safe bet for me to for ‘Cheeky Magenta’!!
Price: INR 499.You may get it from flipkart here.
About Loreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick:
The Rouge Caresse lipstick has a flutter of kissable, soft, color. Its delicate texture glides onto lips creating a veil of color with a luminous shine. It adds a desired pop of color with a meltingly soft application.
The lipstick contains light oils, crystalline wax, transparent blenders and pearl pigments that deliver true color with a weight-less comfort.
My experience with Loreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick Cheeky Magenta:
The lipstick is packed in beautiful silver bullet with see through glass like plastic cap. Brand name is engraved on bullet which looks elegant. Overall the packaging is classy and sturdy.
The Shade Cheeky Magenta is subtle magenta or you can say it is pure blue based Barbie pink shade. Though it is blue based shade, it will equally look good on both cool and warm skin tones. Due to its unique texture it will suit all the skin tones.
Talking about texture, it is very light and balmy, spreads like a dream. This particular shade from the whole range is not so sheer, though I won’t call it opaque, the pigmentation is much better than rest of the shades. The thing is, on pigmented lips the shade comes out to be tad bit darker, not very noticeable difference but it somehow hides the lip pigmentation. The pigmentation is buildable.
Coming to the real deal!! I read on blog-sphere that these lippies transfer a lot and are very sheer. But this particular shade is little different. I noticed that when freshly applied it looks like a tinted lip balm and you can slightly see your original lip color through it, even it imparts high shine. This texture lasts for half an hour, even it transfers a lot in this time but then it starts to ‘set’!
My (very dry) lips drink all the moisture from it. Even the shade darkens and it sets as lip stain!! This stain doesn’t budge from my lips for long time!! For almost 4-5 hours!! The stain is not drying in nature. Intensity of the stain depends on how many times you swipe the lipstick. So I usually swipe it twice, in that way it leaves subtle yet noticeable pink tint.
In the hand swatches I have swiped it just once and, twice, in the lip swatch. In the lip swatch I have freshly applied the lipstick so it looks sheer but after sometime the shade darkens.
Overall, cheeky magenta is a beautiful shade, it will suit all the skin tones. The texture is light yet vey creamy and moisturizing. I am so addicted to it that I wear it all the time.
What I like in Loreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick Cheeky Magenta:
- Beautiful Barbie pink shade
- Will suit all the skin tones
- Light, balmy texture
- Leaves behind beautiful stain
- Stain last for long time
- Decent price
What I don’t like in Loreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick Cheeky Magenta:
- Creamy texture doesn’t last long but again it is because of my extremely dry lips.
(My skin is dry like Sahara desert, drinks up everything! Like everything!! even makeup removers and cleansing milks!! )
