Thoughts: I don't know where to start with these *sigh*! First of all, they're not even listed on the L'oreal USA website. So I went to my second hope the Target website. Unfortunately, that's having issues. I know they were listed last week when I saw it online. I guess I'll just go into the review. :X
The packaging is a simple, plastic, shiny gold with the swatch of the color in the middle. I definitely think the swatch of the color in the middle is true to color. One thing I did not like about the packaging is that it's cheap. While looking at the lipsticks at Target, I noticed cracks and scratch marks on the cover. That's not a very good first impression. Thankfully mine doesn't have any scratch or crack marks. Another thing I did not like about the packaging is that it grabs fingerprints so easily. Just slightly touching and then lifting my finger, I noticed fingerprints. Then again is packaging so important?
It has a strong scent. It's very fruity, but I'm not too sure how to pinpoint the scent. From my experience, all L'oreal lipsticks have scent. They do not bother me. I actually don't mind and this is one of them. ;) After you apply the lipstick on your lips, I can smell it for a good 15 minutes, but then again I'm pretty sensitive to smell. I'm sure most people will forget the scent after a minute or two.
The lipstick is very creamy. It glides on your lips, and it feels very smooth. It's also very opaque. I think it's very true to the swatch of the color on the packaging. Unlike a lot of lipsticks, it has a shiny texture. I would have to say it's a mixture between lipstick and lipgloss. It also feels good and slightly moisturizes your lips.
I've also heard they compared this lipstick to Revlon Lip Butters. I own quite a lot of lip butters and have to say they're very similar. I don't see any differences between them other than I think these Caresse Stick are a little bit more opaque. I would recommend both or at least try both. :)
