Packaging: 9.25/10

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.

Quality: 9.5/10

Lilac Ever After is a classic “my lips but better” shade in gloss form. The color deepens my natural lip shade just a little. This color should work on a wide range of skin tones.

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 Lilac Ever After because the color is so close to the lip’s natural color.

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.

Price: 8/10

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.

  1. Teasha says:

    I have this shade. It really changed colors on my lips. Initially it was a pretty mauve. The stain turned into an orange with a hint of red. YSL does not do that to me, YSL gets a touch darker but stays the same color generally (could be the shades I own). I also find the l’oreal drying. I cannot figure it out because they look and feel so similar.

  2. Christina says:

    I wish this shows up on my lips like it does on yours. For me, the colour is deeper and warmer than what it appears in the tube; I don’t get lilac mauve at all! Mine turns into a dark mauve with a hint of brown undertone. All the colours I tried ended up darkening quite a bit on my lips and shifting in colour. :( The stain they leave behind, though, is pretty. :)
