L'Oreal Paris Shine Caresse Lip Color Bella : Photos, Review, Swatch, LOTD & a Comparison

I already spoke a lot about these L'Oreal Shine Caresse lip colors HERE, HERE and HERE and how much I loved them, but then why did I buy one more shade when I already had three with me? One, I wanted to see if the Indian version was as interesting as the ones I had and two, the shade Bella looked too gorgeous to skip ! So today's post is not just about the shade Bella but also a brief comparison with the ones that were launched overseas.

L'Oreal Shine Caresse Lip Color Bella


The L'Oreal Shine Caresse Lip Color in Bella comes in the classy gold packaging with a little space in between that shows the actual color of the gloss. Easy to spot the shade. The tear drop applicator [that is what it is called btw] is definitely very convenient to use and I am loving it. The shade 'Bella' when swatched turns in to a pretty coral peach color which looks amazing. When I apply it on my lips the shade intensifies after a while and it just looks like a horrible maroon on my pigmented lips ! I was super super disappointed, like never before :(


Packaging is all the same with the Indian and Overseas version of this gloss. The obvious difference comes with the quality. The overseas version is more pigmented, less sticky and stays longer where as the Indian version is less pigmented [even if the shade darkens after a while !] , more sticky and doesn't stay even for 3 hours on my lips ! It leaves a bad stain too that makes my dry lips look pathetic !! When it comes to the cost I am sure the Indian version would be cheaper but I wouldn't mind paying those extra bucks for the quality I find with the other shades.

  • The packaging is all the same - royal and chic.
  • The applicator is very convenient.
  • The gloss feels almost like water while applying !
  • Amazing range of shades to choose from.
  • Easily available at all L'Oreal counters and online too.
  • The shade Bella is a pretty coral-peach.

  • It is sad that the shade Bella turns out really bad on my dry pigmented lips :(
  • The gloss feels sticky soon after application.
  • It leaves an uneven stain on my lips.
  • It does not stay for more than 2 hours on my lips !!

Not many times I regret for having pigmented lips but this time I did ! The gorgeous shade Bella turned out really bad on me and I am ready to give it off to someone as I don't think I will touch it ever again. Not just for the shade but even when it comes to the quality it cannot even be compared with the ones launched abroad ! I don't understand why this difference exists. My lips are more sticky and badly stained with this gloss. This is definitely not for the girls with dry pigmented lips. If you have good supple lips which is not pigmented then you will love this shade on you.

    1. True Supria.. Even I was disappointed with this obvious partiality !

  2. I was waiting for the review.I was very much impressed with the previous shades u reviewed already hence added in my sadddddddddddddd.Do u recommend the other shades to buy?

    1. I highly recommend u to try it on your lips.. wait for 5 mins and then decide Lakshmi. Do not buy them without trying !

  3. i picked up Juliette called Coral Tattoo abroad... i agree word by word with ur comparison.... i found Juliette to be less intense than the one i got...
