L'Oreal GlamShine Stain Splash in 300 Juliet

When the colder weather arrives, I rarely go for a bold eye and tend to stick with a more stand out lip. I think that this is mainly due to the fact that I get really lazy when it's colder, but still, I really like the look of a more colourful lip and a simple eye.

After tweeting L'Oreal about The Starting Off Project giveaway they were lovely and agreed straight away to donate some of their products! I was so happy. I've been using L'Oreal products for as long as I can remember and as a whole they are a brand I'm really interested in. They donated some amazing products to the giveaway (which can be found HERE) and were kind enough to send me a couple of extras. 

One of those extras was one the L'Oreal GlamShine Stain Splash lip stains. Now, my general idea for lip stains is exactly that, a stain. I've used some in the past that I've found to dry out my lips and make they feel a little as though I've not got anything on them. I think that this quality isn't too bad in that you don't have to worry about the colour wearing off, but I honestly like the feeling of having something on my lips. This L'Oreal lip stain is just something else.

The applicator is a heart-shaped doe foot which allows the product to glide on to your lips and enables an even coverage in just a few swipes. It's consistency isn't quite as thick as a gloss in that it is no way sticky. It's juicy, if I can even say that! I just feels like you've got a bit of vaseline or a smooth lip balm on your lips. Yet when you look in the mirror, you have this gorgeous, full colour.

Straight after application

What I was most impressed with regarding this product is it's staying power. The colour of this lip stain literally lasts hours. It stays glossy for ages too. ANOTHER amazing quality is that the colour does not stain onto anything else other than your lips. When you drink from a glass, you get a colourless glossy print. When I kissed the back of my hand (or my boyfriend's cheek - tried and tested!), absolutely no colour is transferred. I don't know about you, but I think that that is in-credible! 

One hour after application! Bit duller in appearance but colour still there!

I have never fallen in love with a lip gloss/stain/product quite so much. I get so excited every time I use it! It's amazing and it lasts for such a long time. It's retailed at an amazing price of £7.99 and I believe that it's worth every single penny. I'm excited to try the paler shades - and you can win one of two of them in my up and coming giveaway!

Have you tried them? Have you tried any similar lip stains?

Lots of love, Steph xxxx

  2. I love this product. I bought it a few months ago and am now obsessed. When I bought it, I actually picked up the wrong colour and didn't realise that I'd picked up this shade until I got home. I would never normally wear red lipstick, but this shade is just so flattering and easy to wear. So I'm very glad that I picked up the wrong shade after all!
