L'Oréal Paris Colour Caresse Lipstick in Violet Chiffon Review

Earlier this year L'Oréal Paris introduced their new line of Colour Caresse Lipsticks that are specifically formulated to be highly pigmented and full of moisture - much like higher-end lipsticks just at a fraction of the cost. The entire line includes 16 revolutionary shades that are weightless on the lips and created with a custom blend of shiny oils which allows for clean, true color to shine through. 

Lately I've been trying to step out of my comfort zones when it comes to lipstick shades. I have the tendency to gravitate toward darker earthy tones such as plums, browns and neutrals. Most recently I've been exploring with brighter shades such as pinks and lighter purples, so when I stumbled across L'Oréal's Violet Chiffon I knew I wanted to give it a spin! Check out a few pics and my full review below.

Glow: What I absolutely love about this lipstick is that it is very moisturizing! It has sort of a buttery feel to it and it has the perfect amount of gloss. It's also very pigmented and literally only took a couple strokes to get opaque. I have dark hued lips so finding a lipstick with enough pigment to get full coverage is always great! The formula is also weightless and very comfortable to wear. I have to be honest I didn't really think that I'd like this shade as much as I do but it's a very subtle purple with pink undertones and goes well with my skin-tone. I think this is a friendly shade for all complexions, it's soft and can definitely be worn as an everyday look or just for fun.

Glare: None! I love this lipstick and I think L'Oréal definitely got it right with these.

Would I Recommend It? I would! I actually plan on trying a few more shades from the collection. I think the quality is very decent for a drugstore brand.   

Where To Buy: The lipsticks retail for $9.99 and are currently available at Ulta and various drugstores nationwide. To purchase or to learn more visit www.lorealparisusa.com .
