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 Resistance–a soft, peachy-pink with 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 Resistance is an extremely wearable shade of peach-based pink. If you wear one layer of color, the shade is more pink. If you apply an additional layer, the shade is more peach and the micro-shimmer is a little more noticeable.
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 Pink Resistance because the color is pretty light and neutral.
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.
