L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick Review & Swatches

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Stick 2

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks have finally arrived in the US but there is a little confusion with the display. If you head on into Target (which seems to be the only place in the US at the moment that actually has these in stock) for a purchase you’ll find a display that simply reads “Luminous Lips” but indeed these are Caresse Sticks.

Those who tried the Caresse Sticks from the UK will indeed by surprised that the formula and packaging of the US version is quite different but not in a bad way.

Here’s my thoughts and review on the new L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks.

L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks Nude Ingenue Review & Swatches

LOreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks 1

L’Oreal is set to launch Colour Riche Caresse Sticks shortly here in the US. These hit the UK market with raving success a few short months ago and I was delighted that we’d be seeing them so early. Typically anything released in Britain gets to our side of the pond within a season or two but lately product launches are very quick to come on over and for that I’m extra grateful.

Although L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks are rumored to arrive here in June I already have a shade that I picked up online.

I blame Revlon Lip Butters for the hype stirring up for the launch of Caresse Sticks. I think a ton of people thought the Revlon Lip Butters were a smashing success, myself included, so anything in the realms of this type of product get makeup lovers quite excited.

Here’s a brief review of L’Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Sticks but keep in mind that I’ll be doing a follow up review when they officially launch here in the US as I’d like to try a few more shades before having my final word on these.

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Peach Me Review & Swatches

Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick Peach Me 001

Revlon has a special display that I noticed at the Evil Empire Walmart recently of Super Lustrous Lipstick.

I’m not sure if the display will pop up elsewhere but I must say I really liked that they took a display and stuck a buncha old shades in it simply because I’ve never really paid much attention to the lipstick before and I liked that they highlighted best selling colors.

I own one or two Revlon Super Lustrous Lipsticks already but like Maybelline Color Sensational I feel like it’s an overrated lipstick with only one redeeming factor, the gorgeous shade selection.

Peach Me happened to be in that special display unit and even though I’m not terribly into the formula I really liked the shade.

Maybelline Color Sensational The Porcelains Lipstick Afternoon Tea Review and Swatches

Maybelline Color Sensational The Porcelains Lipstick Afternoon Tea 6

I’m a later hater. I do NOT do left overs. Anything reheated, microwaved, or re-served to me after a few hours or even a day will be promptly ignored. No, thank you. That must be why I’m not wild about the shade of Maybelline Color Sensational The Porcelains Lipstick I picked up, because dude, I look like death warmed over in the microwave with this shade on.

No likey!

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Cinnamon Stick Review and Swatches

Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick Cinnamon Stick 1

I wish I could get on board with Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick. It’s such a vast selection of lipstick shades at such an affordable price tag but the formula is rubbish.

I find it sits unnaturally on top of lips and just feels all kinds of wrong. A little more moisture might make it perfect….

Sigh! Until it improves my purchases from the line are far and between but I couldn’t resist some of the new Nude and Natural Shades recently released. Cinnamon Stick is a new fav of mine.
