"Lipstick cant solve all problems, but its a pretty good start"
Don't you all agree with me on this quote. Well I pretty believe in it. A good lip color can immediately brighten your mood and so does a chocolate pastry :P
But sometime good lip colors are really hard to find and especially the ones which may flatter all skin tones.
When Loreal lauched their Paris Shine Caresse lip gloss range in the beginning of this year, the entire collection was met with warmth and rave reviews. The collection was launched in 8 brilliant shades with equally brilliant names. I mean if a lip gloss is called Bella, Juliette or Venus it immediatley paints a mental picture of something very feminine, very beautiful.
Ofcourse I was sold to the craze and bought for myself the most talked about shade in this range "Bella"
What does Loreal Paris says about the product
Now hydration and shine meet lasting, lightweight color. With shine caresse, discover a lip gloss that doubles up as a lip stain. This next generation lip color combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long wear ability of a stain. It delivers a lasting color with a subtle glossy shine.
My take on the product
Loreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip gloss in shade Bella comes in a beautiful golden packaging with a small transparent band in between to give you a subtle hint on the color of the shade. I found the packaging very classy very rich. Its sturdy, compact and can be easily carried around.
The applicator of the lip gloss is petal shaped which hugs the lip perfectly and gives the right amount of gloss on your lips. The tip of the applicator can be used as a lip liner while the wider part can be used for for filling the color on the lips. I am in love with this applicator. Every time it gives a perfect pout to my lips.
Bella shade is a warm Rosey peachy color. However on first swipe it's very sheer on the lips but the color deepens after a minute or two on reacting with the heat of the skin. The shade will flatter all the skin tones . The texture is watery and amazingly has less stickiness property. I love the glosses which do not make my hair stick to my mouth. It is less transferable as compared to other lip glosses and has a good staying power. The glossiness stays easily for around 4-5 hours after which it leaves a lovely pinkish stain behind. The stain remins for another 2-3 hours. The gloss survives the light snack however not the full meal. Though the stain remins even after having a full meal.
The only downside that being a sheer texture it may not show up on the pigmented lips. But then the other darker shades like Juliette can be given a try for the pigmented lips.
Overall it's a lovely color and looks beautiful on the face. It immediately brightens the look and can be easily worn for the everyday use. I wear it to my office on a day to day basis and always gets ton of compliments on this shade. This is my favourite everyday use lip gloss.
Being a sheer texture, it may bring out dryness of the lips. Do remember to hydrate your lips before applying the gloss.
