Packaging:- These L’Oreal lipsticks has the best ever packaging. It comes in an exclusive golden painted metallic body in rectangular shape and has a mirror-like finish. It has colored band near the base indicating shade of the lipstick. The shade indicator carrying shade number and name is pasted at the bottom of the packaging. The long cap secures tightly with the base with a satisfactory click sound. The magnificent packaging reminds me of high-end lipsticks like Estee Launder and YSL. Though this glossy packaging is more prone to finger-prints but I like the look and feel of it.. so opulent!

My experience with L’Oreal Color Riche Caresse Lipstick Cherry Tulle:-
Cherry Tulle is a beautiful cherry red lip colour with deep pink undertones. The lipstick looks like it has a pure creamy finish but when observed closely I could detect microscopic golden and red colour shimmers, which adds to the reflective shine of this lip colour.

The lipstick seems superbly pigmented rich red colour in the bullet but goes extremely sheer imparting just a hint of colour on lips when swiped. On my slightly pigmented lips I could barely see any colour in single swipe, so I swiped it 7-8 times to get some decent coverage. It imparted a light reddish color to the lips with super-glossy finish like I have crushed some ripen berries on my lips. (sounds Yummmyy!!)

The texture is amazingly smooth and creamy which glides like butter on lips but doesn’t melt like regular creamy lipsticks. It’s light-weight texture doesn’t feel heavy or waxy on lips so can be layered heavily without bothering about cakiness. The formula is intensely moisturizing which keeps lips nourished for long and makes them appear smoother, something similar to a lip balm infused with colored pigments.

It has a very faint sweet fruity fragrance which I find pleasing to the senses as it isn’t overwhelmingly and doesn’t have that artificial-sugary essence. The staying power isn’t impressive, the glossy shine it imparts lasts for a max of 30-40 min and the color fades to barely a hint of red in 3-4 hours on me. It won’t survive meals and requires reapplication but gives back those juicy, luscious lips instantly.
Here is the complete look..
Pros of L’Oreal Color Riche Caresse Lipstick Cherry Tulle:-
- Beautiful Cheery red color
- Glides smoothly
- Light-weight, non-greasy texture
- Glossy finish
- Doesn’t flake or settle in fine lines
- Awesome packaging
- Best for dry and chapped lips
- Available in 16 pretty shades
- Decently priced
Cons of L’Oreal Color Riche Caresse Lipstick Cherry Tulle:-
- Color-pay off isn’t great
- Low staying power
- Requires re-application
Recommendation:- L’Oreal Color Riche Caresse Lipstick Cherry Tulle is a lovely soft cherry red lip color with silky smooth texture which glides effortlessly on lips. It imparts a yummylicious, juicy shine to the lips and is highly moisturizing to lips. The color pay off isn’t great and is similar to tinted lip balm, just a bit more color. The color fades off in 2-3 hours but the best thing is it never makes lips feel dry or stretchy even after the shine and the color is gone, total bliss for dry and chapped lips. Though I like my lip products to be fragrance free but I enjoy its mild fruity fragrance.
If you are afraid of wearing red’s and think they are too bright for you, you would love to give this a try as it give a hint of red to lips and doesn’t look garish at all but if you are looking for a pigmented lipstick then better skip it.
