I don't know about you but I for one was super excited when I first heard about the Loreal Caresse's hitting the shelves.
They had been promise to be the drugstore equivalent of my much loved YSL Glossy Stains.

Marilyn (103), Romy (102), Lolita (101)
When I saw that Superdrug had a 3 for 2 on all Loreal products, I had a little swatch and picked my 3 favorites.
The range had about 7 or 8 colors in total ranging from nude all the way to red.
I picked a bright pink ( Marilyn), a coral toned pink with gold sparkle (Romy) and a pretty nude shade called Lolita.
My first impressions were good, a nice selection of basic colors, a good price ( £7.99) and beautiful packaging.
No, since getting these babies home and having a play, I have to say that I am on the fence.
The above picture shows you clearly the colors, you can also see that they are a little on the watery side.
I have used them all a couple of times each now, and in all honesty, when I have them on my lips, they all look the same. I don't know if it is the staining agent in the formula that just sticks to my lips and shows through or just a fluke.
I cant really see similarity between the shades in the tube, but on my lip that's a whole other story
I have only managed to get lip swatches of Marilyn so far, I will take pictures of the others in the day light to share with you in a week or so in a follow up post.
I want to give the Caresses a fair trial, and believe me I want to love them, so far tho, Im not sure.....
Have you had this issue? Is it just me?
