Coral Me Back top and Very Berry Me bottom
A couple of weeks ago I had a week off from work and because I had no idea what to do or where to go, I decided to do what I do best - shop. It's also been a while since I had a good drive in my car so I made the excuse that my car needed the drive all the way to Cheshire Oaks Outlet Shopping Centre. I know, I'm terrible.
Well my favourite shop there (apart from the Lindt store) is the Beauty Outlet Store obviously because the clue is in the name. CHEAP MAKEUP. Who can resist a good haul?
One of the products I picked up was the two lip balms from the L'Oreal Caresse range. Now I had no idea what this range was as I've never heard of it before but I fell in love with the berry shade so I knew I had to pop it in my basket. Along the way, the coral shade also managed to find it's way in my basket as well. Oh well!
Like I said above, I've never seen or heard of this range before so I honestly didn't know what to expect and I have to admit that I am slightly disappointed. I loved the colour of Very Berry Me but when applied it hardly brings any colour to my lips so instead of getting a lipstick, I got a barely tinting lip balm. They did however have a great formula and made my lips super glossy so I guess I can't call it a complete loss.
Although they weren't what I expected, I'm going to try and turn this around as a positive and make them my new Spring/Summer lipsticks! They might be great for colour but the gloss is great so I'm definitely going to get some use out of them. If you liked the look of them, you can check them out here on Amazon!
