L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Aqua Lip Lacquer Review

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)

1st application no flash
First application leave your lips with the usual lip stain feeling of numbing/plumping , keeping in mind they do not claim to be lip plumper's its just what i can closely relate the feeling to . When it drys its an almost velvet appearance . With the base layer down you can build it up to the color intensity and glossiness you desire . They leave you lips feeling super moisturized, the gloss is not stick but at the same time you feel like its not going anywhere if you lick your lips or sip on a drink . If those are reasons enough to love them they pair great with you favorite lipsticks and and the lasting power of that is unreal . The only thing that in my opinion could be better is if they came out with a clear one that you could top any lipstick with to really seal it in and give that great shine and staying power . (HOLY GRAIL GLOSS)
Stain left over after removal of first application 

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 .


  1. wow! those look great! i am especially drawn towards the light pink :) great post!

    1. Thank you , I am in love with them . There a great product and the color pay off on the brighter ones is great . I am glad you liked the post be sure to subscribe and please keep the feed back coming .

      thank you


  2. I have been eyeing these at the store...I wanna try them but am so often disappointed with lipsticks/lip gloss that claim to have staying power (I have so many in my makeup bag is crazy!) so I haven't taken the plunge.I am so glad you shared this review...now I know to go ahead and try them!

  3. yea for what they claim i think there spot on. Especially like that there affordable . I had been trying to find a good enough reason to try the YSL but couldn't get my self to spend that kind of $$ on something i could very well end up hating .

  4. What is the name of the pink one with the brush shown in picture three? :-D It's super cute! As you know, the pictures online are a lot different than how they actually look, so I just want to be sure.
