L'Oreal GlamShine Stain Splash

Hello Lovelies! 

Last weekend myself and my boyfriend went shopping, and I spent far too long in Boots! My justification for this was because the Boots in the town we went to was so much bigger than my local one!

One of the products I was most excited to get my hands on was the infamous YSL Glossy Stain dupes by L'oreal! The L'oreal Glam Shine Stain Splash lip stains (what a mouthful) I had been lusting after the actual Glossy Stains for months but I could never justify the price tag, so when I heard that L'oreal were coming out with something similar I waited with baited breath! 

I was slightly disappointed in the colour range when I eventually seen them so the two I bought were what I thought were the most wearable out of the range. I picked out 102- Romy and 300- Juliet. Firstly can we take a moment to admire the gorgeousness of the packaging! I think it's so gorgeous and elegant! For the price-tag I think it's amazing quality and definitely does not look like something from the drug store.

On first application I was slightly disappointed with them, I found them to be really sheer and sticky. But when I worked abit more with them I have fallen in love. It does take a few coats to achieve opacity but once you get the look you want it's extremely long lasting. The stickiness still annoys me but for the look it gives I can deal with it! When you first put them on your lips they give quite a cooling sensation to the lips. They also have a fake fruity scent which I don't mind but some people mightn't like it. The glossy finish does last quite awhile, and when it eventually wears off it leaves a gorgeous tint of colour to your lips. Towards the end of the glossy wear it does turn slightly drying so I would recommend having a lip balm to hand!

The main issue I do have with these gorgeous products is the price. €12.29..OUCH! UK prices are £7.99, I'm sorry L'oreal but £7.99 does not equal €12.29..sadface! But apart from that I absolutely love these products and they have definitely got rid of my curiosity about the YSL glossy stains for now!

    1. I got such a fright when I got to the till, I knew they were around the £7 mark but didn't expect €12! :O xxx

  4. I love the brighter of the two, though they're both gorgeous! I need more glossy lip products, all mine are matte, which I love, but it's nice to have the choice. :) They look great. :)

    1. Thanks so much hun! I'm normally a matte lip girl too:D xxx
