See it through my Eyes

So as you can tell I got all 8 shades to show you. The colors range from nude, plum, red, orange, pinks. I like the variety.


If you have not guessed already let me tell you something.  The lip color are hidden inside the cap which is twist open. The cushion like sponge tip in the bullet has to be dabbed in the underside of the cap to get the color on the tip for application.  Phew that was longggg sentence.  The outer packaging is beautiful and has ombre pattern on the glossy rose gold metallic body. The packaging is a super gorgeous. Its classy, smartly designed with color coded body and unique feature of lipstick inside cap.
The sponge tip is pointed, just like the Maybelline Lip Gradation which helps to line the lips perfectly. I line the lips after dabbing the sponge tip in the lid and then slowly fit it in.

How does it work?

The cap has inner spring which goes back and forth when you dip the sponge inside the cap. The spring helps to put adequate pressure and release color on the sponge tip.
However, at one point when the lip color is used up I am not sure if the sponge will reach the inner cap that precisely. Also the process is time consuming and sort of a struggle to apply. Its definitely not your “I am getting late” lipstick.


These lippies are made of flower oils which is so interesting and unlikely for a cosmetic brand like L’Oreal. The texture is unbelievably soft and buttery in application. I didn’t expect it be this soft. Its exactly like Maybelline Lip Gradation which is my ultimate favorite when it comes to texture. These lip colors are completely matte and hardly transfer. The matte texture becomes dry on lips post 5 hours or so.

L'Oreal Tint Caresse Peony Blossom Review Swatches


All the shades are named after flowers as the formula is composed of flower oils.

Lily Blossom
This is an out and out N*ude shade. My lips look oh so natural wearing these, its easily my MLBB shade. Perfect for the days you want to keep it natural and no makeup look.

Peach Blossom
This one is a beautiful pink color, wrongly named peach. It is nicely pigmented and one of the very common pinks.

Peony Blossom
This one is a burnt orange shade. It is for one and all and doesn’t look over the top. I love how natural it looks and makes me glow.

L'Oreal Tint Caress Rose Blossom Review Swatches

L'Oreal Tint Caress Sakura Blossom Review Swatches

Plum Blossom
This is an intense berry red which is so different from my taste. I love how edgy and vampy it looks. It gives a very sexy look.

Rose Blossom
This one is a red. It will suit all Indian skin tones. The shade is well pigmented and rightly named “Rose”.

Sakura Blossom
This one is my favorite shade from the collection. I simply love the pouty look it gives my lips. The color is so pretty. It’s a milky pink shade which will flatter upto NC 40 skintone in my opinion.

Tulip Blossom
This one is a more orangy version of peony blossom. Its an orange but not too loud. It has red undertones and perfect for those first time dates.

Orchid Blossom
This one is a hot fuchsia pink. My second favorite from the lot. The shade is vibrant and pigmented. It will flatter most Indian skin tones.

Staying Power

These lip colors set and literally stand by the lips whole day. The color sort of penetrates in the lips and leaves a tint behind. It stays on my lips for upto 10 hours which is super impressive.


All the lip colors are surprisingly well pigmented. Due to sponge applicator it needs a second third run, the color nevertheless is amazing.

As a eye shadow

I don’t know why I don’t like the idea of such shads on my eyes. I had used on the eyes once, but didn’t enjoy as much. Why? For the last of control and hygiene.

As a Cheek Tint

To this I agree and loved using. Most of the times I am in hurry, I end up using my lipstick as a blush. So this concept is not new to me. The shades pair up beautifully as a blush and lip color. The soft flush of color is adorable.

NoM Report Card : 4/5

Final Verdict

Overall these unique tints are multi use. I like the texture, shade variation, longetivity and pigmentation. They work well as cheek tints. A product worth a try.
