Today I’m going to review another lipstick by L’oreal Paris from the Rouge Caresse collection. The shade I’m going to be reviewing is Impulsive Fuchsia. I bought this lipstick last summer while I was on a vacation abroad. And now that L’oreal has finally launched these lipsticks in India, I thought of reviewing another one from the shades I own from the Rouge Caresse collection.
What L’Oreal says about Rouge Caresse: Don’t just stroke your lips, caresse them. Lips say yes to this Caresse. A flutter of soft light-weight feeling color. Its delicate texture glides onto lips creating a veil of color with a luminous shine. Available in 10 bright and eye catching shades.
Shelf life: 36 months
My take on L’oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Impulsive Fuchsia
Starting with the packaging, it’s very similar to that of the Infallible lipsticks. The sticker at the bottom denotes the shade of the lipstick and its name. it’s very light in weight which makes it travel friendly (most lipsticks are travel friendly anyway 😛 )
The shade I bought is Impulsive Fuchsia, which is very much similar to MAC Girl About Town. I’m kinda regretting buying this shade though, since I mostly wear the MAC one that I own. Nonetheless, it’s a very pretty and bright fuchsia color.
Talking about the texture, it’s one of the best textured lipsticks I own. It feels just like a balm. Like I said in my previous post on Rouge Caresse lipstick, it’s very much similar to the Revlon lip butters’ texture. Extremely smooth, and glides on very easily onto the lips. Though the bummer here is because it is so smooth in texture,it transfers pretty easily.
I am not too amazed by the pigmentation. You need good 4-5 swipes to get close to the color. People who have very pigmented lips would require even more swipes, maybe 6-7. The lipstick gives a beautiful glossy effect to lips. The staying power isn’t that great either. It barely stays on me for 3 hours. So multiple touch ups can be required when wearing this lippie for a full day. Another bummer. But despite that, the stain that it leaves on the lips is very beautiful.
Pros of L’oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Impulsive Fuchsia:
• Beautiful fuchsia color
• Elegant packaging
• soft texture
• Feels as light and smooth as a balm.
Cons of L’oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Impulsive Fuchsia:
• I bought for around HKD 100 which is very expensive for a lipstick like this.
• Pigmentation is average
• Staying power is okayish
Will I repurchase L’oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Impulsive Fuchsia?
I don’t think I’d repurchase this particular shade but I may try some other shade from this collection.
