L'oreal Caresse Lipstick - Tempting Lilac review, swatches and photos

Yes I know, another lip product, I don't need them but in my defence, I can say with all honesty, that I don't own anything like this in my collection!  I don't have any lip products that are lilac or purple (oh wait, I remembered just this second I have an Avon purple lipstick, but it's soooo different to this one...) and since I loved Dating Coral so much, I had to pick it up.

Tempting Lilac is one of the Caresse Lipsticks from L'oreal that just kind of crept into the beauty world and have kicked Revon Lip Butters' ass from everything I've read!  I would normally shy away from anything with lilac in the name just because I'm not a granny but when I swatched this, I knew it would have to be mine.  


It's a pinky purpley lilacy colour that reads more pink on my lips.  Like Dating Coral, it's a creamy, pigmented lipstick that feels like a lipstick/lip butter hybrid and feels gorgeous on my lips.  It leaves them feeling moisturised, looking glossy and is one of those colours that you don't have to apply with a mirror which is always handy when on the go.  It doesn't last too long on the lips, you'd be lucky to get a couple of hours out of it but it's a pretty colour for spring and I don't mind reapplying it every so often.


It was €9.95 in Superdrug but I've seen it closer to €13 in Boots, so shop around ladies.

  2. Vay, vay pretty - I've seen these compared to Revlon Lip Butters and it looks like they're the more favourable to me. I guess there's only one way to know if I truly prefer them ;)

  4. I also bought two of these lipsticks from Superdrug, taking full advantage of the 'buy 1 get 1 half price' offer. I purchased '501 - Dating Coral' and '501 - Nude Ingenue'. I will have a blog post up on my website with the shade I bought, if you want to check it out just visit www.fromindonesiawithlove.co.uk

    Have a lovely day, love the blog! x
