This post has been in the drafting stage for over two months and I'm finally sitting down to write the copy for this lovely lipgloss. I picked up the L'Oreal Shine Caresse Lipgloss in Coral Tattoo back in December along with Endless Red and I subsequently fell in love with the formula of these glosses. For those of you who may not have heard, this is L'Oreal's answer to the YSL Glossy Stains and I assume the formulas are not that far off considering L'Oreal owns YSL's beauty line.
Above is one coat of Coral Tattoo and this would be pretty for a day time pop of orange. The formula is extremely lightweight and a joy to wear on the lips. The texture is very wet but it does not slide around and there is no stickiness.
With two coats of Coral Tattoo, my lips look tangerine red which I think is perfect for summer. The lip color is opaque but still lightweight and comfortable. If you love full coverage lipglosses, this is definitely for you!
Honestly I cannot remember how long elapsed when I took this photo but if I had to guess it would be two or three hours. The photo shows the gloss settling into my lip lines and a bit of fading but in real life it is much less noticeable. The gloss definitely leaves a stain behind on the lips without ever making my lips feel chapped.
I am loving this lipgloss innovation and hope that more brands catch on because I would love to pick up more shades at various price points. L'Oreal is coming out with a lot of impressive new products that resemble luxury brand products like the Infallible Eyeshadows which are comparable to the Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill. I can't wait to see what new products L'Oreal launches next! Have you tried the Shine Caresse Lipglosses?
