|L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Caresse Shine Stains|
Hello dear readers. I have some super lip stains to show you guys today! If you have been following me on Twitter you might have seen me raving about these in the last few weeks. I think I'm in love.
I was instantly into these when I first saw the commercial and now that I have seen these lip stains in action my love has only grown. L’Oreal Paris is just throwing out amazing products left right and centre in the last little while and these lippies are at the top of the list for me.
I adore lip stains since the freedom of not having to reapply is something I really value. I also love the glossy feel and shine of lipgloss though. The L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain line delivers both of those aspects in one gorgeous little tube. I have three shades to show you today, 186 Berry Persistent, 190 Endless Red, and 185 Lilac Ever After.
Let’s talk about that tube for a minute. I think it is fantastic and it gives me a very vintage high-end feel. I feel like Audrey Hepburn might carry something like this in her clutch and it looks so expensive and formal. It reminds me of something my Grandma might have bought at a fancy department store, but this L’Oreal lippie is at drugstore prices. The tube screams glamour to me, and the product inside lives up to the look.

The wand of these lip stains is so cute and I actually like the way it applies. Fuller brushes for lipgloss of lip stains can be tricky for smaller lips like mine, so this tapered point makes it easier for me to get colour where I want it.
The formula is medium-sheer but you can build it up and it leaves a stain for sure. I like the wet look and how this stain seems to be a gloss, but doesn't feel sticky or slimy like gloss usually does. My mom always says that lip stains were basically garage door paint in her days. This is most definitely not like that! It almost feels oily on my lips, which could also be called smooth. It was a smoothness I have never felt before.

The colour lasts a long time too, although it fades after eating and drinking throughout the day. I found Endless Red to be very vivid after a few hours, and still going strong after an entire day. Funny story - my brother got home around 10pm on the day I wore this and the first thing he asked when he walked in the door was "Are your lips bleeding?", so I think that proves how long the red lasted!
The lightest shade, Lilac Ever After, had a bit shorter of a run but it still left some colour on my lips at the end of my test. It has a lovely hint of gold shimmer in real life, but it is tough to see in my photos here.
Berry Persistent lived up to the name and left me with bright bold lips after an entire work day, including a coffee and sandwich. I really love these lip stains and have added a few more to my collection already. I would highly recommend you check these out!
Thanks for stopping by!
