Hey guys! Here’s a nice nude lip gloss! I got swept up in the hype of this being a YSL Glossy Stain dupe and promptly picked it up from Myntra.com!
The L’oreal Shine Caresse Lip Gloss range is more like lip stains with a glossy finish. The shade Lolita is dusty mauvy pink. How this looks on your lips can change a bit because it’s sheer and your lip colour does show through. It looks more cool toned in the tube but it’s a very warm pink which is even better for Indian skintones.
For me, it gives a sheer wash of colour and appears as a warm pink, very close MLBB shade. I also detected very subtle gold shimmer but it’s very fine.
This particular shade is sheer and can be buildable upto a medium coverage. You can get a full coverage with some of the darker shades though.
Now the consistency of this is really different from your average lip gloss. It’s very very light, like liquid. It feels wet on your lips when you apply like as opposed to the heavier gloss like feeling. You give it a minute or two to set and it adheres to your lips and doesn’t budge. I’ve tried smacking my lips, eating, drinking, it doesn’t move much. It’s fantastic! The only thing is, you get that tacky feeling when you purse your lips. It kind of bothers me but I guess it’s just a matter of getting used to it. It’s very similar to the lip creams that turn matte in that regard.
Even with a sheer wash this lasted well for 4-5 hours, albeit it fades a bit when you eat or drink. That’s still pretty great for a lip gloss. This will also pass a hair stuck to lip gloss test, you won’t find your hair smeared with product.
If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t like lip gloss due to the texture, give this a try, it’s a nice in between solution!
I also really adore the packaging, it’s sturdy and the twist of the cap is very reassuring. I like this kind of tapered applicator which is easier to use in the corners. It’s moderately priced at Rs. 499 for 6ml of product.
