Hi everyone, I am back again with a yet another review of my currently favorite and quite popular at the moment – L’Oreal Shine Caresse lip stain in shade 605 Eve. I am a huge fan of lip glosses and as soon as I saw this product online I ordered it without any second thought. L’Oreal has launched Shine Caresse range of lip glosses in India few days back. They have launched only 8 shades in India, named Lolita, Venus, Bella, Faye, Juliette, Milady, Eve and Pretty Woman. I picked up Eve shade and I bought it online from Myntra.com.
Packaging : It comes in a mirror finish gold tube with a see through mid section, for easy identification of color. A leaf shaped soft sponge applicator brush is attached to the cap.
My Experience : After reading many positive reviews about L’Oreal Caresse lip gloss range, I thought it is a worth trying at-least 1 lip stain from this range. So I picked up Eve shade for its unique color. It is a pinkish purple shade with red undertones but when applied on lips it turns dark and converted into berry shade. The texture of this stain is very creamy and it glides very smoothly on lips. It has a bit runny consistency and feels very light on lips. It has tiny pink shimmer particles in it. As soon as I sniffed it, I just felt in love with its delicious fragrance.
I’ve healthy , not so pigmented lips, so one swipe of this stain imparts a nice glossy pinkish purple color on my lips. This lip stain is highly pigmented and one swipe is enough to impart color and cover full lips. But if you want a bolder color or you have pigmented lips, then 2 or more swipes will give you nice results. You should wait for few seconds before applying second coat, as the color starts getting dark after few seconds.
The shape of the brush is ideal for precise application of this lip color, top of the brush helps to draw outline and bottom part covers whole lips. This lip gloss is highly hydrating and stain lasts for more than 5 hours on my lips with eating food or drinking tea/coffee in-between and it fades evenly. Sometimes it might bleed if you go over board, so be cautious while applying this gloss on lip corners. I noticed a bit stickiness when it starts fading, but it is very less in comparison to other sticky lip glosses. Now as I’m totally satisfied with its results and I’m looking forward to buy at-least 3 more shades.
