Hard Candy has released several new products to their line. One is the “All Glossed Up Hydrating Lip Stain”.
I’m a fan of Tarte’s cheek stains and their newest addition, Awakening, does not disappoint!

L’Oreal has really shocked me, in a good way, with one of their new releases. Its the L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stain. I was at Ulta and was very intrigued when I saw the new display. I grabbed 2 colors to give it a try.
When I got to the car I noticed 2 things. The first thing I noticed was that the applicator was virtually the same as the YSL Glossy Stains. The second thing I noticed was that they smelled virtually the same too. Continue reading Review: L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain
I had heard a lot about the YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis à Lèvres Glossy Stains so I had to give them a try. I was pleasantly surprised.
They feel like velvet when you put them on. Its a really interesting sensation. They smell and taste a little like champagne or white wine. Its a very subtle alcohol note and I can’t quite put my finger on which one it is. I guess if had to choose I would say its closer to champagne. The wear is great. It is a stain, but it will still transfer to glasses and things like that. The color holds for quite a while, but the glossiness goes away after a couple of hours. You can reapply it (that’s what I do) or you can add a clear gloss when the shine wears off.
As you see in the video, the color that I tried was very dark. I have pigmented lips so I was too skeptical to try the light shades. The dark one worked well though!!
Have you tried these? Please let me know, especially if you have tried the lighter colors!!
I purchased these products myself and as always these are my own, honest opinions.
I like both Tarte and Benefit Cheek Stains, but when it comes to ease of use and removal, I have to go with Tarte.
Have you tried them? Which do you think is the better product?
All items were purchased by me. I was not paid to mention or review these items.
