L'Oreal v Revlon!

Hi all!

Now in the beauty blogger world everyone knows about Revlon lip butters and L'Oreal rouge caresse...but the question is 'which is the best?' So I thought I'd do a little comparison between the two for all those not sure which one to go for. So....let battle commence! ;-)


ROUND 1 - Packaging 

Revlon
- Very cute design
- Love the colours on the lids, makes it easier to find the right shade
- Quite sturdy so lid wont fall off

L'Oreal
- Simple design
- Sturdy lid so lipstick wont come out

Round 1 Goes To - Revlon
ROUND 2 - Pigmentation

Revlon
- Lighter colours not as pigmented
- Darker colours better but still not very strong

L'Oreal
- Great pigmentation, better than expected
- Shows up on my lips really well (I have quite pigmented lips)

Round 2 Goes To - L'Oreal

ROUND 3 - Lasting Power

Revlon
- Lipstick lasted between 3-4 hours depending on the colour
- Did fade on the lips well

L'Oreal
- Lasted really well approx 6 hours
- When faded left a lovely stain on the lips

Round 3 Goes To - L'Oreal

ROUND 4 - Price

- Prices are the same, both are £7.99
Round 4 Goes To - Both

ROUND 5 - Moisturising For Lips

Revlon
- When first applied it feels nice and moisturising on the lips
- Moisturised feeling doesn't last too long

L'Oreal 
- Provides moisture on lips which lasts a really long time
- Feels very comfortable on the lips
Round 5 Goes To - L'Oreal
AND THE WINNER IS..........

L'Oreal Rouge Caresse!!!!


Now don't get me wrong I do really like both, the L'Oreal edges out because it lasts longer and I'm the type of person who really can't be bothered to touch up! So if like me you want something which requires less maintenance go for L'Oreal. But if you want something a bit lighter and aren't as bothered about lasting power i.e. something for school or day time wear then go for Revlon.

Hope this has been helpful, let me know your thoughts.

  1. I found the loreals to be more pigmented and last longer. The lip butters didn't really live up to the hype in my opinion xx

  4. Totally agree, Loreal wins out for me but I still love the lip butters, can't believe there was no hype around the rouge caresse lipsticks though as I genuinely believe them to be the better option of the two

  7. I've read a lot of beauty comparisons but I really like the format of this <3 I've only ever used revlon, and never tried l'oreal! but then revlon stopped producing my favourite lipstick, so maybe i'll have to give it a go! Thanks for sharing your advice!
