L’Oreal’s newest lip product is its Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stains, which are said to be both a light-weight gloss and a stain. The Wet Shine Stains come in 12 different shades. This review is for the shade Eternally Nude–a caramel nude.
The Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stains come in short tubes made of gold-colored plastic. The base of the tube twists to reveal a teardrop-shaped doe-footed applicator. The tube itself is very light.
Eternally Nude is a caramel-nude shade, so it has orange and brown tones in it. With one coat of gloss, the color is translucent. The color becomes more dense with a second coat. The gloss has extremely small shimmer particles that aren’t individually noticeable once the product is applied, but they help give the color a luminous effect.
Personally, this isn’t my favorite Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain color. I find the orange/brown tone a bit unflattering on my skin, so I only wear this shade in one, sheer layer.
The Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain formula is extremely emollient. It glides on without feeling sticky or gooey. It dries slightly after a few seconds without becoming sticky and while still leaving a glossy finish to the lips. The product doesn’t have any offensive smell or taste.
This lip product is also long-wearing. It’s transfer- and fade-resistant, lasting for a good three (3) hours before the gloss part wears off. But even after the surface of the product has faded away, there’s still a hydrating effect left behind to keep your lips moisturized. This product also tints and stains the lips, but this effect is hard to see with Eternally Nude because the color is close to the skin’s natural tone.
Ease of Use: 10/10
The cream/gloss formula glides onto the skin effortlessly. This shade is also fool-proof because of how natural it is.
For around $10.00 you get 0.21 fl oz (6.2 ml) of product. This is on the pricey side, especially given the amount of product in the tube.
