L'oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Aphrodite Scarlet

L'oreal Rouge Carresse - £8.19 Boots
I am in love. There I said it. Do you realise how long I've lusted after the YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick?! At £23.50 a pop, it isn't something I've managed to add to my ever-growing lipstick collection just yet, so I went for an alternative.The L'oreal Paris Rouge Caresse packaging is just as sleek in my eyes and so pretty that I had to get it! There were tons of shades available and I bought it at the same time that I bought a few more Revlon Lip Butters..I'm so naughty :(

The shade I went for in the end was Aphrodite Scarlet which is a reddy-pink, more on the dark pink side but I was hoping for a darker red. The product itself is so, so moisturising and the colour pigmentation is high too. It doesn't last an awful long time on my lips which is a shame, but it can take a few drink sips here and there.

I'm quite impressed with it overall and have nothing bad to say about it. You could argue that for an extra few pounds you could get a Mac lipstick, but to be honest, this is everything I wanted and more. I really struggle to find products that don't accentuate my dry lips and this is one of those things that doesn't. I'm already lusting after more shades and would love a few more pinky shades, because I just don't have enough obviously....

You can buy L'oreal Rouge Caresse from Boots (currently buy one get one half price) and Superdrug (currently 3 for 2 on selected cosmetics) for £8.19. Feelunique currently have a few shades on offer for £6.80 including delivery so snap it up quick!

Have you tried L'oreal Rouge Caresse lipsticks? Which is your favourite shade?

  1. One of the best lip products i've tried for a while, i really want this shade but it's always out of stock where i live!x

  2. I have fashionista Pink & Lovely Rose. They're not the most pigmented shades but they feel lovely on the lips and add a nice wash of colour.

  3. These sound lovely - what a colour. Looks rich and pretty.
