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 Pink Perseverance–a transparent, pale pink with silver micro-shimmer.
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.
Pink Perseverance is essentially a clear color. In the tube, it is a pale, milky pink, but once applied, the pink does not show through. Even if you layer the color multiple times, the pink hue is barely perceptible. The color also has extremely tiny shimmer particles in it, which are a little more noticeable than the pink hue. The color leaves a glossy finish on the lips, but not much more.
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. Since this color has no tint to it in the first place, it doesn’t give you the staining benefit the other colors in the range do.
Ease of Use: 10/10
The cream/gloss formula glides onto the skin effortlessly. This shade is also fool-proof because of the clear color.
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.
