Hi everyone! Here is another product that I bought a long time ago and just never got around to reviewing. This is the L`Oreal Colour Riche Balm in Caring Coral. My previous Le Balm reviews: /viz/review-loreal-le-balm-quotcaramel-comfortquot /viz/review-loreal-le-balm-quotrose-elixirquot
Price & Availability - $8 to $10 - Available wherever L`Oreal products are sold
Shade & Finish - Caring Coral is a sheer pinky coral - Glossy finish, but not shimmer
Packaging - Square packaging - Transparent tube cove reflects the color of the shade inside - Has a lock & key closure (picture #4) so you can only open and close this product one way - Gold lettering and base
Scent - Smell slightly floral. Maybe roses?
Pros - Easily accessible/widely available - Sleek and chic packaging - All the colors in the line are wearable - Very moisturizing
Neutrals - Price: pretty expensive for how much product you get, but L`Oreal products do go on sale at the drugstore - Opacity: this product is VERY sheer. On my pigmented lips these don`t show up at all - Closure: I hate that L`Oreal has these lock & key closure, so you can only put the cap on one way. If you`re in a rush to apply and go, you`d have to take a little extra time to get the cap on right. Maybe I`m splitting hairs, but the last thing I really want to worry about is whether I put the cap on right. - There aren`t too many shades in the line. I think there`s only 8
Cons - For me, the cons are the sheerness and the closure, but I put those as neutrals because other people may feel differently
Overall A lot of people wanted to know how these products compare to the Revlon Lip Butters and they are nothing alike. The L`Oreal balms are super sheer but very moisturizing. The Revlon Lip Butters and much more pigmented, and they are creamy but not all the shades are necessarily moisturizing. To me, these L`Oreal balms are overpriced chapsticks. Thanks for reading!
