If you’re blessed with smooth lips, these weightless inks from L’Oreal Paris are absolutely beautiful. They’re so feathery light on the lips and feel ‘breathable’ despite the fact that they’re forming a film. I don’t say I can’t feel the formula at all – I can – but it’s as near to bare as you get.
Despite an intense pigment claim, they’re not completely full on in that department. You’ll need to apply a couple of times at least to get full coverage and on my lips, the shade I Savour which is the baby pink, faded out quite quickly although I never mind topping up because I think I’m particularly careless with pigment! The reason that I flag smooth lips as optimum for these is that on my dry lips (horribly exacerbated by two days of lipstick testing) the colour did cling to dry patches a little bit. Not hugely, but still. The ink formula means that there’s a lot of water in them – hence the weightless feel of course – but it will evaporate and if you are prone to dryness, won’t help with that.
Goosebumps! Sorry. Shades from bottom to top are: I Savour, I Achieve and I Explore. Rouge Signature is made to a matte formula but it’s not at all an aggressive matte – doesn’t even feel particularly matte-ish. These are a nice buy at £9.99 each if you’re prepared to do a little topping up as you go along – I watched (part of) a YouTube video where the reviewer claimed a 5 hour wear which I would say was impossible. You can find them HERE.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
