Lip Stain and Gloss in One!

I simply cannot walk into a store that has lip products without buying one. My latest find, L'Oreal's Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain, is absolutely phenomenal.

I know I've mentioned it before, but L'Oreal is actually owned by the same company that owns Lancome, so most of the products are of the same great quality.  I've always been a L'Oreal fan, but was a little skeptical about the whole lip stain / glossy look that the product promised.  In the past, I've just had horrible luck with products like that. They either don't last as long as they claim, flake off, or just look fake and plastic-y.

But after trying it out, I'm incredibly obsessed! This stain is super lightweight, looks gorgeous and somehow manages to hydrate lips (which I've yet to find in any other stain).

The product is marketed as a lip stain that thinks it's a gloss. I'd say that's pretty accurate.

I've tried almost all of the 12 shades offered and love them all. If I had to choose a fave hue, it would have to be Lilac Ever After.  It's more pink than purple--in fact, I'd just say that it's a cool, rose pink.  On me, the color looks like my natural lip color, only a step up. It gives a little bit of a pop of color without going overboard.  The darker shades are amazing too; it really depends on what look you're going for.

This is def a product to stock up on. At $10 a tube, you can afford to try out a few!
