L’Oreal Paris Lippies ~ Glam Shine Balmy Gloss | Glam Shine Stain Splash | Rouge Caresse

How often do you see L'Oreal lipsticks on my blog? Rarely. Apart from hair colors (more than 50 of them, I think), I don't often seek L'Oreal makeup. The biggest reason for that is because L'Oreal a little bit more pricey compared to other drugstore brands, especially here in the UK. A gel liner costs almost a 1000 rupees! So the other day I went to Superdrug specially to get a Glam Shine Balmy Gloss, but as always, I was 'forced' to get 3 products to make use of the 3 for 2 offer (meaning: I get 3, but pay for only 2).
Thanks to the offer, I found a new favorite lippie that I wouldn't have willingly bought otherwise. I saved it for last.....
L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss Die For Guava ~ I picked this one from 6 shades (see all shades here). Die For Guava is a lilac pink. The texture is buttery, and this shade needs to be layered a few times to look somewhat opaque. For now, I'd say it's most similar to Bourjois Color Boost. It is fragrance-free. Price: £6.99  | Rs.694. They cost Rs.400 in India. In the case of 3 for 2, I got this one for free, coz it's the cheapest.

L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss Die For Guava

L’Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick #04 Rose Mademoiselle ~ These are similar to Revlon Lip Butters, but still very different. I'd say these are more lightweight & feel less creamy/buttery. Pink Mademoiselle is simply a rose pink shade. Price: £7.99 | Rs.793.
L'Oreal Glam Shine Stain Splash Princess ~ Oh my bows! How have I not looked at these before?! LOVE! It's like a lip stain + gloss with 30% water-based formula . Somewhat sticky, but it sticks more to your lips than to itself, if that makes sense. Like, if you lock your lips, the gloss doesn't move or stick together, it's as if it's clings to your lips so tightly like shoe polish clings to shoes. Oh-kay, that's enough explanation from me. I'll just say it's one of the best lip gloss formulas, and I love the applicator too. These glosses are said to be dupes of  YSL Gloss Stains, which really did look and feel similar when I swatched them at the store about a week ago. Princess is a deep coral color, and it looks fabulous! I can't wait to get 2-3 more shades. Price: £7.99 | Rs.793. {Named Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain in USA}
Swatches ~ L'Oreal GlamShine Stain Splash Princess (layered 3-4 times),  L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss Die For Guava,  L’Oreal Paris Rouge Caresse Lipstick Rose Mademoiselle #04

All shiny shiny packaging!

My favorite from this haul is obviously Glam Shine Stain Splash, and I just love that this color is named 'Princess'.......

I feel like one, I expect to be treated like one,
Until I find myself on all fours,
Like a beast of burden,
Dragging a wet rag on the floor.


  1. I really want to try the L'oreal Glam Shine Stain just because I've heard so much about YSL Stains but can't afford to spend that much on one product. This post made me happy because of all the lippies! :) Thank you CZ

  2. Please review clinique n kerastase products

  3. The last two look so royal

  4. The L"oreal lippie haull.. very nice .. I also find L'Oreal makeup a bit pricier than the other drugstore brands but I still slove them.. the Lipsticks looks so nice.. beautiful shade..!!

  5. The shades are amazing but even better are the names. Kudos to the marketing people who give each lippie a unique cute name ;)

  6. amazing colors. Lip stain is amazing color...

  7. L'oreal owns YSL, so the two lip stains might be the same formulation for all we know!

  8. Omg, I've totally underestimated the color quality of the caress lipbalms! I love that shade, such a nice sheen and rose!! I would wear that with everything!

  9. I wanna try the Glam Shine Balmy Gloss,its cute and I have not yet used any type of that product,i mean those Crayon looking things,I wanna try them all.

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
