L'Oreal Colour Caresse Shine Stain

Was browsing at the cosmetic section at Walmart yesterday and saw the L'Oreal colour caresse shine stain. I am always drawn to lip stains as I love the fact that I only have to apply it once in the morning and hopefully don't have to reapply anything besides lip balm for the whole day.


The packaging is very cute and sleek


I picked up the shade 185 Lilac Ever After



I love mauve colors and think I'd better pick up a shade which is not too dramatic as I look terrible in bright deep lip colors.


This is a mauve color with some pinkish brown tone


The swatch on my hand. Doesn't show up too well on pictures unfortunately. The stain does stay on my hand for a good amount of time. My hand looks so crazy with all the swatches of the lip stains at the check out counter. No matter how much I rubbed the swatches, they won't smudge a bit at all. It feels a bit sticky when I did the swatches.


When I apply it on my lips, it does not feel as sticky as I swatched on my hand which is a big relief as I hate sticky lip products. I only apply one coat and did not apply any other product on top. I was expecting a more glossy finish but guess I have to apply more generously. 

Overall, quite happy with the lip stain. The staying power is amazing. Does not dry up my lips throughout the day. Does not have any fragrant or minty flavor unlike my other lip stains. Definitely I will go back and try other shades. Think I would go for a slightly darker shade.

    1. yes, they are here. I'm surprised as these were fairly new to US. I also saw these at Shoppers Drug Mart too. Stock at both stores is not very full. Only a couple left for each color so hurry before they run out :)

  3. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it
    was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for novice blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.

    1. I like more natural lip colors and this is just the perfect everyday gloss for me. Think I will apply another coat next time I wear it to stain my lips a bit more.
