L’Oreal Rouge Caresse v Revlon Lip Butters : The differences
A short while after the Lip Butters were released, L’Oreal launched the Rouge Caresse lipsticks, and I got myself down to Boots and purchased a couple — for research purposes of course…
Both lipsticks are the same price and can be found at Boots and other drugstores for £7.99. The Rouge Caresse lipticks feel much nicer on the lips, they’re a balmy texture and this makes them feel more moisturising and lightweight compared to the Lip Butters, which feel thicker and heavier. Unfortunately, the disadvantage of being lightweight and balmy is that the Rouge Caresse lipsticks suffer slightly when it comes to longevity. Overall, Revlon Lip Butters offer superior lasting-power and pigmentation. The colour range for both products seem to have grown extensively in the past few years, but I have found that the Rouge Caresse lipsticks seem to have more pink shades and the Lip Butters offer more darker/berry shades. I generally prefer the Lip Butter shade range as there seems to be more variety, but it really does come down to personal preference.
To sum up, both are good products and they have different strengths and weaknesses, so it depends on your preference in lipsticks. If you want something longer-wearing with high pigmentation, I’d recommend the Revlon Lip Butters. However if you’re after a sheer wash of colour with a balmy finish, pick up a L’Oreal Rouge Caresse lipstick. Have you tried both? Which do you prefer?
