L'oreal Shine Caresse in Bella and Lolita

Many have told me that L'oreal Shine Caresse are affordable dupe of YSL Glossy Stains and that has certainly got me curious. However, retailing at $18.90 (if I remember correctly) is still not exactly a price I would like to pay considering it is a drugstore brand. Thus, when Watson's is having 20% sale on L'oreal brand of products, I took this opportunity to try L'oreal Shin Caresse.

Housed in a plastic golden tube with a portion of see through clear plastic, you will be able to tell the shade you are applying. I doubt it is able to indicate the amount left in the tube like YSL Glossy Stains but for me who hardly finishes her lip products, this is not part of the consideration, haha. So here we have Bella on the left above and Lolita on the right.

In terms of initial look and feel of L'oreal Shine Caresse, it is definitely a dupe to YSL Glossy Stains. The staying power is also comparable to YSL Glossy Stains and it leaves a light stain on my lips after breakfast and lunch. The only difference that I can feel is that my lips feels drier than if I apply YSL Glossy Stains.

For ladies who are keen about YSL Glossy Stains but unwilling to part $40 for 1 can seriously consider L'oreal Shine Caresse. Considering both brands are under the same company, the quality would not differ much.


  1. Lolita looks like my kinda color! ;p Think i will try this!!

  2. Hey Ruby, I've been really intrigued by these, but I don't normally go for lip stains! I do love both shades you picked out though, particularly Bella!
