I have been testing these out for about a month now and i have to say i am in love with them . So much so that i have purchased a whole new set and added them to my kit . They are 12 shades in a full range of colors .
Knowing that L'Oreal owns YSL I figured it would only be a matter of time before they came out the there take on the Glossy Stains . I do not own any of the YSL stains as i could not bring my self to pay $32 for one , but god knows i have have played with them every chance i get at Nordstrom's .
Plus side to YSL they smell like fruit punch where as L'Oreal has there o so familiar floral (grandmothers makeup) kind of smell . Also there nude shades are much more pigmented then the L'Oreal .
Now that the inevitable band aid of negative has been ripped off , the positive . First and for most is the price . These little gems retail anywhere from $7.99 to $9.99 and a lot of places (cvs , walgreens , ulta) will throw out a buy one get on 50% off deal . The packaging on these are super sleek and i like them much better to the Glossy stains . there small fit great in your pocket (even in shinnies) , give you the color window so you can see what color your grabbing with out having to open it . The applicator is ingenues it is a large doe foot shape but with a hollow center so when you remove the wand you have a pocket of product in the center . What does this mean ??? Less dipping into you product meaning less air and longer life span of your stain . (won't dry out in 2 weeks WOOHU)

Give them a shot if not for anything else there a super affordable dupe to YSL . Have fun and if you get a chance to try them leave me a pic i would love to see how you pair them and what you guys think .
