L'Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain | Swatches & Review

Hey all! I wanted to get one of these when I got to NYC and that I did. But now that I have it, I'm not so sure I love it like I thought I would. You know sometimes other bloggers and Youtubers make a product seem so fabulous and when you get it, you're just like.. "that's it?" That's how I feel about this weird lipstain, gloss, slick Mc.long-wearing thing in Lilac Ever After. I was definitely expecting something else.

I first tried it out in June or July (it slips me), so I could write a review on it. Actually I tried to film a first impressions, but that went through the window as my set up just was not working for me. Anyway, I tried it on to be greeted by the weird wet slick feeling on my lips. This was not like regular lipgloss. I guess if a slug glided across your lips it'd feel like that. What a horrible thought.

As for the colour it came out, definitely not what I saw in the tube. It did this odd colour shift. I don't know if my mind was playing tricks on me, as I had a cold at the time. But I tried it a few more times recently, and still not the colour of the gloss you see on the wand. It's still pretty nonetheless, but boy was it unexpected.

Don't bother to rub your lips together with this one, it's kind of pointless. Just more of that odd slick feeling. I think I've gotten accustomed to it now though. I does last wet and glossy looking a considerable time, 4 hours or more, but don't plan on eating or drinking, because it gives you some very weird feelings again. Not something I would have associated with this raved about gloss. Maybe it's just my tube. But sometimes it balls up on my lips and as it is constantly wet, I can see things sticking to it, like my hair. Not cute.

I would have to say one of my favourite things about this lipstain/gloss hybrid, is the packaging. Though a fingerprint magnet, it's so classy and beautiful, you can help but carry it around. I also love the wand. It's a nice tear drop shape that makes applying this stain very effortless. If I get the chance or mind to buy this again, I think I'd go with a darker colour to see how pigmented it is on my lips.


  • Good colour range
  • Beautiful, classy packaging
  • Tear-drop shaped applicator makes applying easy.
  • Stays glossy
  • Good lasting power (4+ hours)
  • No noticeable scent


  • Oddest wet feeling I ever got from a lipstick or gloss
  • Balled up on my lips after drinking and eating.
  • Colour of my lip product shifted when applied to the lips
  • Expensive for drugstore product but can be found on sale for $6USD or so, especially with a coupon

The Raw Sugar:

I do not know if it's just that my tube was a dud, but if I do find it here (affordable at least) I will try it again. I was really hoping it'd be the colour the tube was showing, but it didn't come out like that. I don't love the wet feeling. It's very odd too me. but I already said that plenty. Maybe this is just another over-hyped product. 

Tell me what are your thoughts on this lip product. Have you tried it, or wanted to? What colour do you have?

Where to get it: Drugstores (USA), mostly like available in Cave Shepherd (Barbados)
