A lightweight stain: The L'Oreal Tint Caresse Powder Lipstick

If you're on the quest for the most lightweight lip color in existence, you would love the L'Oreal Tint Caresse Powder Lipstick (P350). It's a powdery lipstick with a thin emollient base which you apply with a dense pointed sponge. It feels like you're wearing absolutely nothing on your lips, and the powder particles deliver a vibrant, long-wearing matte stain! I love the petal-like demure finish. The Tint Caresse is also a nice pick if you want an ombre look.

The stain can last through an oily meal and barely transfers on glasses. It takes over five hours to fade on me, which is really something! The pale peach color I have, Lily Blossom, is way too faint to show up properly though. I recommend getting the brighter shades if you want to maximize your purchase.

Tulip Blossom is a pretty reddish peach that looks soft and pretty on the lips. Orchid Blossom is my fave out of the three because it's super pigmented, and registers the best.

The catch: the Tint Caresse is of course not really lipstick as we know it. It's more of a staining color that needs to be layered a few times to get a solid finish. Also, I'm not sure how long a tube will last since the actual product is just maybe less than half of the cap. You twist the tip inside the cap to pick up product, you see.

You may also want to rethink getting this if you have dry, patchy lips. it will sink in the lines and isn't particularly moisturizing due to the thin formula.

Nonetheless, if you've been dreaming of a color that feels weightless and still stays even after eating, the L'Oreal Tint Caresse is one of the best, more affordable options out there. It's a bit gimmicky with the applicator and powder texture, but it's a good product. Try Orchid Blossom if you love bright fuchsias! It's a great summer shade.

Thoughts? Have you tried this powder lipstick yet?
