The face of L'Oreal Caresse Sheer Lipstick is model Barbara Palvin,
truly stunning and a nice change from all the other celebrity spokeswomen.
You can view the a snippet of the new advert before it airs on Monday - here.

I have noticed the recent trend of packaging sheer lipsticks in transparent and chrome casings
perhaps it is to hint at the formula inside being almost transparent too?
That aside the case is strong, sturdy and well constructed, 
so much so that the lids are a little troublesome to remove at first.
On the lid is also a colour co-ordinated metallic/mirrored patch.

The L'Oreal Caresse Sheer Lipstick line has 12 shades in total so hopefully something for everyone.
Fashionista Pink is a milky baby pink with a strong blue undertone resulting in the shade appearing lilac
in certain lights, I find it most comparable to Mac Viva Glam Gaga (the 1st one).
I also found Fashionista Pink to be the least pigmented out of the shades I have tested this far,
it is a pretty shade though and it gives a light milky sheen to the lips.
This shade does not show up on my arm all you can see is a light shiny patch hence why I have forgone 
the arm swatch...sorry!

The formula of L'Oreal Caresse Sheer Lipstick's is a cross section of lipstick and balm,
Comapred to Revlon Lip Butters generally speaking these have more pigment than the lip butters
and feel more like a lipstick rather than a balm.
What I can say is unlike a tinted lip balm these have a fair dose of pigment 
so they do deliver in the colour pay off stakes, albeit it a little sheer compared to a normal lipstick.
They are also extremely soft and moisturising with a tendency to bleed, 
so building up the shade's intensity can be a bit of an issue due to the bleeding.
That being said they are extremely comfortable to wear and have a light gloss finish.
In terms of wear I found this formula to last around 1-2 hours 
but they can not withstand eating or drinking.
