L’Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick – Aphrodite Scarlet Review

Hi everyone!

Hope you all are doing great. Today, I have a gorgeous lipstick from L’Oreal.  It is a new launch and was really excited to try these. I just read online some time back that these have similar formula to the Revlon lip butters. The L’Oreal SA had 8 shades in the counter. I picked up 2 lipsticks and after using them, I want more now! 😀 Anyway, read on for a complete review on this product.



Rs. 499

Product Description:

Don’t just stroke your lips, Caresse them. Lips say yes to this Caresse. A flutter of kissably soft light-weight feeling colour. Its delicate texture glides onto lips creating a veil of colour with a luminous shine. Available in 12 bright and eye catching shades.


  • Weightless sensation.
  • Luminous and fresh colour.
  • Meltingly soft application.
  • Pop of colour.
  • Flutter on your lips.
  • New sensation.
  • Feather light feel.


The L’Oreal Rouge Caresse lipsticks come in a glossy silver tube with a colored label at the bottom. The packaging is very similar to the L’Oreal Infallible lipsticks range. I like the colored label at the bottom a lot, it is really comfortable to locate shades. The lipstick bullet is flat on top not pointed like regular lipsticks, I really liked it as it works well for application.


Aphrodite Scarlet is a pretty pink with red undertones.  It comes very similar to watermelon color on my lips. The shade adds a nice pop of color to the lips, which makes my face look bright instantly. I highly recommend this range for people who would like to try bright colors but in a subtle diffused manner.



The texture of this lipstick is similar to a lightweight lip balm. It is extremely soft and glides super smoothly on the lips. When I applied it for the first time, I had dry lips, but still I did not notice any tugging. The application of this lipstick goes like a super smooth, non-waxy lip balm.



The lipstick applies sheer in a single swipe but the color can be built up easily by layering it more. As I have quite pigmented lips, I thought this range would be too sheer for my liking, but it turned out to be a surprise the color intensity can be easily built. It imparts good color intensity to the lips in multiple swipes, but it doesn’t go completely opaque.


The lipstick feels very light, comfortable and hydrating on lips. As soon as I wear it, sets into a slight glossy finish. The lipstick doesn’t settle into fine lines. It doesn’t get uneven, nor does it feather or bleed.  The wear time of these lipsticks is for good 4 to 5 hours easily. It does leave a strong stain on lips after fading.


Pros of L’Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick – Aphrodite Scarlet:

  • Good packaging.
  • Affordable.
  • Pretty color.
  • Soft and smooth texture.
  • Sheer to buildable pigmentation.
  • It doesn’t settle into fine lines, bleed or feather.
  • Lightweight on lips.
  • No chunky shimmer.
  • Good wear time of 4-5 hours.
  • It leaves a pretty stain which makes the lipstick last more.

Cons of L’Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick – Aphrodite Scarlet:

  • Some may not like these lipsticks for deeply pigmented lips.

Overall, I really like the Rouge Caresse lipstick. These are my first lipsticks from the brand and I am super happy I tried them.
