What we say:
At first I wasn’t completely convinced, as I have a few favourite brands which I’ve stuck to for years, but the more I used it the more I loved it. The gold packaging is really pretty, fits perfectly into my bag or clutch and very easy to apply when you’re on the go. I did find the applicator a bit awkward at first but eventually got used to it. It smells quite fruity with a pleasant taste which did take some getting used to. Best of all, it stays on forever! I even managed to eat lunch without it disappearing completely, which is fantastic. I also felt like my lips were very well moisturised while wearing it and it didn’t leave them feeling dry and chapped a few hours later like a lot of other glosses do. I’ll definitely purchase this product again and highly recommend it to anyone who loves gloss as much as I do.

This product looks fantastic. I love its gold case and the little window through which you can see the colour of the gloss. It also has a very nifty applicator. Unfortunately, that is where my love for this product ends.

I applied the gloss and my lips immediately felt sticky and I could feel dust particles were sticking themselves onto my lips. Not a very glamorous feeling at all. The colour changes quite drastically once applied, which I wasn’t a fan of. I prefer a matte finish when it comes to lip colour, so this is probably not the best product for me.

However, I did give this gloss to a friend, and she rocked the “Eternally Nude” shade.  If you are a lover of lip gloss, and want a wide variety of shade to choose from, then this product is for you.

The lip colour lasted almost the entire day and the shine was long lasting. It doesn’t transfer easily, when eating, drinking.  If I feel the need for a subtle look, all I need is one swipe and if I want a heavier look, I simply need to apply it more than once and then it becomes a more deep red colour.

It comes in a gold casing with a clear panel that allows you to see what the colour looks like inside. The lipstick also has a slightly slanted applicator which made applying the product really easy.

The shade Causse 300 Juliet has this amazing fruit scent which lasted longer than expected. The feel is smooth, soft and my lips stayed hydrated for quite some time. The colour doesn’t feather or wander and the best thing about applying this lipstick is that I don’t need to re-apply throughout the day.

I would definitely repurchase this product because it’s long lasting. Highly recommended!

  1. So for a few years, I’ve been eyeing the YSL Glossy Stain, but it is quite pricy for just a glossy stain, so when I heard about this L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain, I couldn’t hold in my excitement. I rushed to the closest Foschini and got my hands on a Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in the shade 300 Juliet. So I’m going to talk about the packaging first, I really like the packaging, it looks classy, with a shimmering gold casing, as well as a gold lid, and a see through window to view the beautiful colour you’re purchasing. Plus it has a little embossed gold plate which had the L’Oreal logo, want something luxurious? This is definitely it! Trust me… I got a few looks from some curious ladies when I applied this gorgeous Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain.

    The applicator is quite different, than your regular applicator, it is more in a downwards tear drop shape, which I am assuming should help you with a more even application as well as a quicker one as it covers more of your lips at a slick brush. I personally thought the applicator shape was different, but helped me with an easier application, I’d give L’Oreal a thumbs up for designing that applicator. The actual product is difficult to explain, because it is neither a lipstick, nor is it a lipgloss, it is basically like a lipgloss, which gives coverage like a lipstick, yet stays on like a balm stain… Confusing right? The stain has this gel kind of scent (if you’ve tried gel stains, the scent will be familiar).

    The colour I chose, looks very red in the tube, but surprisingly isn’t that red when applied to lips. I’d say it gives lips a fair amount of colour. The texture of this is similar to lip gloss, it is slightly sticky but surprisingly light… I’d say that even though it is sticky, it gives lips a slight silky feeling when first applied. After getting used to this Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain, I really like it. In fact I am going to purchase a few more! I like how it stays on for hours without fading, I was more surprised that after eating, the stain didn’t fade quickly. As it did fade, it faded into an even light tint but still had a little glossy look, so it didn’t make lips look all weird.

    The only problem I’d have with this product would be the weird sticky moisture layer which is left on lips right at the end, but it is nothing that make up remover cannot deal with. I’d give the product a thumbs up completely, because it is affordable, doesn’t dry out lips, the colour lasts quite long, it is compact to throw into a clutch bag for a night out, plus it is available in quite a few colours. So if a silky glossy kind of look is what you’re looking for… I’d definitely recommend this L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain to you!
