L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stain - Infinite Fuchsia
These new generation lip gloss stains have intrigued me for awhile. I was particularly lusting after the YSL Rouge Par Couture Glossy Stains for quite some time now but was hesitant about dropping $36 for one. So after seeing the L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stains commercials with their glossy awesomeness and reading Sparkled Beauty’s review, the makeup junkie in me caved. I spotted these in Shoppers Drug Mart and I grabbed Infinite Fuchsia.
The makeup junkie in me took over again! That bitch! HAHA no I love her.

What do I like about it?
The color; Infinite Fuchsia is a dark pink berry. I was actually taken aback at how berry-ish it came off on my lips. I liked the color though not how it applied.
Longlasting; I put it on at 1 pm (two layers) went out did some errands and then farted around the house. At 5pm, I took a gander at my lips and even though the glossiness was mostly gone, my lips were still holding the color quite nicely (I ate a sandwich during this time as well). At 10pm, I was left with a berry tint. When I was washing my face, I had to actually use baby oil to get most of the stain to come off. I could still see a slight tint in left some places but was too lazy to do more scrubbing and left it.
The packaging; I like the L’Oreal packaging better than the YSL version. The huge angled applicator can be turned around to paint the top lip and bottom lips quite easily. I guess a regular doe foot would work just as well mmehh.
The price; these are a lot more affordable than the YSL Glossy Stains.
What I wasn’t crazy about?
The scent; It has a slight chemically scent. It reminds me of something medicinal but I cannot put my finger on it. After a few moments I didn’t even notice it. But it may be a little off putting for some.
Application; It did take a couple applications to get an even coverage. I used two applications to get the level of color in the picture below. The first layer seemed kinds of uneven. It was noticeable with Infinite Fuchsia. It was sheer in some places and thicker in others. This may not be a problem with the lighter colors.
Drying (not immediate); Infinite Fuchsia wasn’t drying as I wore it. But after wearing it for two days straight, I noticed on the third day my lips were getting dry and scraggly even with lip balm. So I am pretty sure it was the Caresse Wet Shine Stain. It is a lip stain after all. So maybe keep that in mind.
Overall, I like Infinite Fuchsia. Even though there were a few things I didn’t like about it, they were not deal breakers for me. Other lips stains I have tried (CoverGirl) have dried my lips out like crazy. This only did after a couple days of constant wear.
Would I buy again – um yep. I am going to go get Rose On and On as soon as I find it. It was sold out at the SDM I usually go to so I will have to check at Walmart. J
L'Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stains come in 12 shades and were $12.99 at Shopper’s Drug Mart.
