L'Oreal Caresse Shine Stains, Part 2Tuesday, April 02, 2013
This is a continuation of my previous post on the L'Oreal Caresse Stains. I've been using them quite a bit since that post & I'm still really enjoying them. Be sure to check out that post if you want to see swatches & a more thorough review because this post is just all about how they look on.
I like the formulation, it feels comfortable on the lips. I don't find them drying, though I do always prep my lips with a bit of lip balm before applying any kind of lip product. They offer good pigmentation and a great colour range. Application is easy, though it's best to wait a few seconds before coats, otherwise things will get goopy.
Despite being a "stain," all three shades still transfer (i.e., on Starbucks cups), but they are fairly long-wearing.
I thought this shade would go on much brighter and more vibrant, but it's actually quite subtle. It's a blue based pink and it offers a very light wash of colour on the lips. It's the most everyday shade out of the three I own. You need at least two coats for an even finish.
This leans much more orange than coral on me. I love it though. It's bright and fun, perfect for the new season. While it's pigmented, you'll need two coats to even out the colour.
Holy pigmentation, batman! This is the prettiest deep fuchsia. It covers the lips in one even coat and it also leaves the strongest stain. It's a great colour if you're looking for a vibrant bold lip.
If you own some, what other shades do you recommend? :) x
