L’Oreal Color Caresse Shine Stain Swatches

I imagine you’re all excited about the new L’Oreal Color Caresse Shine Stains! I located these at Harmons recently, hauled three, and proceeded to head back for more…!

These are available in twelve shades for $7.79 each. I think Harmons reasonably prices everything and I imagine once CVS and Walgreens launches you’ll notice they range in the $8.99-$9.99 range but I could be wrong.

Take a look at some swatches after the jump!

I’ve been testing these all week and will have a review for you tomorrow or Friday. I need a few more days to test them out before the review.

So far the texture has a watery feel and applies with a tiny bit of shine at first. Excellent, natural pigment is a plus here as it gives a MLBB look (my lips but better). I don’t particularly love the taste at the moment, it’s kinda perfume-y fruitiness. I also don’t like the silicone-like feel of them. They seem to wrap around lips and this results in some drying…but as I said I need to test some more before deciding fully.

Eternally Nude, Lilac Ever After, Infinite Fuchsia

Pink Resistance, Rose On and On, Coral Tattoo, Everlasting Caramel

More info and details to come.

If you tried them I’d love to hear your thoughts.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I need Coral Tattoo! I’ve been waiting for these for a while, so I’ve gotta check em out!

  • Cj

    Rose on and on is calling to me, I wonder how good these would work as cheek stains?

  • i

    CVS is about 2.50 to 3.00 more on the L’oreal, remember you can use you Bed, Bath Beyond coupons @ Harmon as well!
    I will take a trip there to check these out how to they last compared to Infallible glosses?

    Uh oh. I see shimmer. Muse, can you include anything you notice about the scent in your review… especially if you’ve smelled the YSL version these are supposed to mimic?

    I got Lilac Ever After today. I found a display at CVS (which I did not expect my CVS to have them yet). It was $10.49 before tax. That mark up is killing me… I have lips that get dry and peel very often, but it stayed moisturizing for me. I just love how shiny and glossy this stays! I can’t say much about the staining though. I put a dab of the gloss on my hand and it stained that, but my lips don’t appear to be stained from what I can see. It’s only been one day and one color so I’m not totally sure whether its good or just meh.

    Lilac Everafter and Pink Resistance look gorgeous! Can’t wait to see your review. I have sooo many lip products so if these are truly incredible and groundbreaking, I’ll indulge.

    I picked up two of these yesterday at CVS and they retailed for $10.49/each. Luckily I had some coupons and there was an Extrabuck deal because L’Oreal is really pushing their drugstore prices…. I personally LOVE the formula! It looks super glossy with two coats and wears well even after meals. The scent reminds me of pears and some sort of alcohol (the chemical kind, not liquor) which I’m not crazy about either. I have Coral Tattoo and Endless Red. Love Endless Red for a bright red lip and it’s going to be great for the holidays 🙂 The neutral shades look nice from your swatches as well!

    Ooooh, intrigued by these! I’ve heard so much about them. I need to find myself a Harmon’s or a BB&B that carries Harmon’s to check these out! (Especially for that lower price. CVS has been killing my wallet lately.)

    Can’t wait for your review 😀

    • the Muse

      i love cvs but yeah, agreed….there bogo offers aren’t even worth it as the price is already too high to actually get any real savings with a bogo! 🙁

  • Emi

    I am totally loving these – I have eight, oops. I love how they look, and they are comfortable to wear for me. And yup, they are $9.99 at the drugstores in my area (thank goodness for coupons!)

  • Anne

    i’d love to try Pink Resistance, Rose On and On, Coral Tattoo
    can’t wait for the review! i’ll run to my local cvs if the review is good 🙂

  • Monica

    I love these and will be heading back for more. I also enjoy the Super Stay 10 but not a fan of infalible…it failed on me. Makes your lips look dry after a couple of hours and you have to continue to put #2 on.
