Today’s post is L’Oreal Paris Tint Caresse Orchid Blossom Review,Swatch,Photos
L’oreal Paris keeps surprising us – Lipstick Addicts– with its ever new range of lipstick formulas , varied finish and improvised packagings. Except one lip collection, I have always found L’oreal Paris lipsticks among my top favorites since past few years. Recently , L’oreal Paris India came up with ‘Cushion Lipsticks’ which really toppled me over as I loved the concept of cushion makeup which feels hydrating especially for dry skin. On top of this , L’Oreal Caresse range always have nourishing lip products so I resorted to try out this – Tint Caresse Collection. L’Oreal Paris Tint Caresse has 8 beautiful shades and all of them are named after flowers which somehow highlights and synchronise the concept of nourishing floral oils blended in lipstick formula. I was slightly confused between two shades – Sakura Blossom which is a peachy tint and Orchid Blossom which I finally picked . Since I bought this lip tint online and didn’t see the swatches in real, I decided to go ahead with Orchid Blossom which I knew will definitely work for my skintone.

Nail the ombre lip trend or go for full matte lips using its expert applicator with soft cushion tip that lightly blends in the colour.The designer sponge tip is pointed at the end for precise application, ideal for shaping and smudging. Developed with a mix of nourishing flower oils and powdered pigments, the Blossom Tint Caresse delivers vibrant colour payoff in a soft, velvety matte finish that feels weightless and is non-drying on the lips. The long-lasting and transfer-proof formula is also a great multi-tasker that works as an eyeshadow or blush!
L’Oreal Paris Tint Caresse Lipsticks are packaged in long, metallic finish tubes with color accents of the lipstick shade inside. Beside being color coded. tint tubes bear the name of the shade on the colored end of the tube. In L’Oreal Paris Tint Caresse Lipsticks,lip tint is actually housed inside the cap and on unfastening the cap , instead of lipstick the base part actually has a cushion applicator. It is actually the reverse packaging as usually we have the applicator in the lid and pigment in the base.The conical sponge tip is pointed for precise application whereas the circumference of the sponge is ideal for spreading and smudging the tint to create lip gradation look. Packaging is fun,stylish and functional.
Orchid Blossom is beautiful orchid pink shade that will suit all skin complexions. L’Oreal has launched eight shades in this collection. I did not want to experiment with lighter shades in collection when I picked this lipstick online as they are really expensive for drugstore makeup . So instead going for a neutral shade I rather opted for this beautiful orchid pink color which I knew will suit my skin complexion. However after trying the product , I actually felt that I should have picked one neutral shade also because the formula sits weightless on lips and actually looks like part of lips. Sakura Blossom is beautiful medium peach- pink color that looks very natural on my lips. ( Eventually I tried it in person also)
Texture of L’Oreal Tint Caresse has a mix of nourishing oils and powdered pigments which deliver rich vibrant colour on lips in single swipe although I get complete opacity on my lips in two swipes.Lip tint wears incredibly soft & feather light on lips and stain lips with cushiony-matte finish without any sheen or shimmer .Being enriched with flower oils formula feels non drying on lips rather I find it somewhat conditioning on my lips with tender floral oils.
It is a versatile product and can be used in multiple ways.
As lip tint, I apply it all over my lips but if you want to create ombre lips just dab the cushion sponge on inner side of lips and then smudge it out.In case if you have more of these you can mix match them for creating dual-vibrant ombre.As lipstick, It does not settle down in fine lip lines and does not budge et all. It lasts on my lips for 4-5 hours with minimal eating in between. However with full meal I loose it completely.
It can be used as blusher also. For that I dab the sponge along my cheek bone and then blend it out with my fingers.Orchid Blossom adds this very natural deep pink color on my cheeks that compliments my medium skin tone. As blusher also it blends seamlessly ,sets to beautiful matte finish without looking patchy.In this FOTD, I have used it as blush on top of my pressed powder. It blends effortlessly and does not mess up my foundation base.Texture is feather light and non greasy so can be used to built on pigmentation on olive skin complexions.On my cheeks it lasts for 4-5 hours and does not look patchy on fading.
L’Oreal Paris Tint Caresse can be used as an eyeshadow also. I just dab the cushion top on eyelids and blend out the product gently with fingers.Since orchid blossom is deep pink shade, It can be used as transition shade for creating spring summer looks. However there are shades in Tint Caresse collection that can be used as only lid colours or as base to same tone eyeshadows to achieve long lasting and more vibrant finish.
VANILLA RATINGS 9/10
L’Oreal Paris Tint Caresse Lipsticks have cushiony soft texture that wear very light on lips so much so that I completely forgot wearing something on lips. These stain lips with gorgeous matte finish that does not dry out lips. Orchid Blossom is gorgeous orchid pink shade that will suit all skin complexions and women of all age groups. Packaging is chic and innovative with cushion applicator that can be used to create soft graded lips also. Beside this it can also be used as blush and eyeshadow also although I prefer using this particular shade – Orchid Blossom – as blush only for its rich pink color.Formula is non-drying on lips and does not bleed throughout the wear. It lasts for 4-5 hours on my lips and starts fading from within outwards . It is definitely expensive for a drugstore lipstick but the versatility and unique finish of the product justify the price to some extent.
