L'Oreal Rouge Caresse Lipstick 301 Dating Coral : Photos, Review, Swatch & LOTD

I am sure this month you would be seeing a lot of LOTDs here ! If not a lot at least a couple of them while this is already my second LOTD in this month. Yes, there are many lip products lined up for review and if my laziness doesn't pop up as always then I am planning to review most of them by this month itself. The shine caresse lip gloss set my expectations really high that I was craving for these lipsticks even before they were launched. I got the shades Dating Coral, Impulsive Fuchsia and Rose Mademoiselle and I will be reviewing the first one for all you ladies here :)

The packaging of these lipsticks for some reason reminds me of some of their other lipsticks ! A simple tube covered by transparent glass like packaging with one end showing the color of the lipstick inside (lid) and the other end (base) showing the shade name. I was surprised to see that most of the shades had a mauve tint to it and I am not a great fan of mauve so I ended up picking the shades that didn't have this mauve tint. Dating Coral is a pretty coral in the tube but when applied turns in to a simple nude shade which might wash out fair skin tones !! I could build up the color a bit but still I couldn't see any coral at all but still I liked the color on me. The pigmentation is medium and the finish is glossy which again reminds me of the L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Nutri Shine Lipsticks reviewed HERE !!

  • I like the simple yet useful packaging - it makes identification of the shades so easy !
  • They have launched 10 pretty shades to choose from.
  • I love the formula which is moisturizing.
  • The pigmentation is medium and glossy - like a gloss.
  • In spite of being as light as a gloss it stays on my lips for 3 hours.
  • Easily available.

Worth A Mention
  • If you are looking for super pigmented lipsticks then you can skip these. 
  • If you are a mauve lover then you have more than 4 shades to impress you !
  • This shade Dating Coral would look pale on lighter skin tones.
  • Dating Coral is not an intense coral shade as it looks in the tube !!

  • I expected more pinks and nudes in this range but was disappointed.

I am quite loving the formula and I always prefer medium coverage, glossy lipsticks over super pigmented matte lipsticks. I love how these are non-drying and stays for a good amount of time on my lips. This particular shade Dating Coral is my go-to lipstick and I am using it almost everyday. I am really loving it and I might repurchase the shade I have already got. If the formula is your kind then do check out these lipsticks.

  1. the shade looks really nice :)

    1. It is Poorva.. If you have non-pigmented lips it will look much much better :)

  2. It looks very light on lips and not pigmented too.....xoxoxo....:)

  3. This looks much lighter on the lips than on the swatch or in the tube, which is actually a good thing sometimes :)
