Review, Swatch - L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain Endless Red

2.20.2014

You all know I love these hybrid lippies.
Now I own six shades and Endless Red is the latest addition to my humble L'Oreal Wet Shine Stain collection.



L'Oreal Colour Rich Caresse Wet Shine Stain
Endless Red
(Hurrah!)






Endless Red is a pure red but looking slightly cool from the tube.
BTW, I love the applicator. Frankly, it works better than the fuzzier bigger one of YSL Glossy Stain.


The color looks a bit warmer on my arm, doesn't it?
Lippie swatch on arm could be deceiving especially when the formula is on the sheer side.


Lip swatch
I just love the color and the finish!


I admit blogging about red lipsticks is funner and they usually photograph better in overall looks, but I still struggle with pulling off a red lipstick in real life as it looks too strong or unbalanced most of times.
This is the case with most full coverage lipsticks for me but it is even more so with red ones.

Luckily, although I should have found this years earlier, this particular red with glossy semi-opaque coverage has solved my age old problem.
The defining color and its glossy finish gives the youthful look to the lips plus it lasts and lasts on me!

It photographs very nicely as well.
I have already shared two different (unrealistic) versions of an overall look here & here. You can see the color looks quite stunning under various lightings complementing my skin tone.


Here, I have a little less unrealistic(!) overall look for you. ;)

L'Oreal Wet Shine Stain Endless Red is my favorite red lip color by far.
The best part is that I actually reach for it without having to give a pep talk to myself.
It is almost weird that I feel quite comfortable and natural wearing this bright bold color of red. :)

  1. It's so pretty on you! I might have to try this one, as I find most red lipsticks way too aging on me now.

    1. I feel the same way about red lippies in general, but this one is different. Give it a try, Tracy! :)

  2. It's an absolutely siren looking shade and you pull it off so well with your porcelain skin tone! I own a hot pink fuchsia shade from this line but haven't use it in so long! Totally need to pull it out soon!

    1. Ah, I have the hot pink and fuchsia ones as well. They are extremely long lasting on me as well.
      This red color is not as scary as you'd think, though. :)

  3. You are glowing, Lena! ♥
    And I used to have that P&J foundation years ago!!! It was too dewy for my then-oily skin though :(
    Oh, Gracilis. I finally caved and bought it! *covers eyes* But seeing it on you makes me think I did a good job with the purchase :)

    1. Thank you, Shari!
      P&J foundation is pretty good but now I have other favorites. Alabaster would be the palest yellow I've seen in years, though.
      Gracilis is a definitely a nice purchase. I'm sure you'd enjoy it as much as I do! :D

  4. Hey Lena, I don't know what you're talking about, because the look looks A OK to me! Believe it or not, I still haven't tried anything in this glossy stain family. I guess my love for traditional lipsticks knows no bounds! Maybe one day though :)

    1. Thank you.
      This one works better on me because of the glossy finish and a bit of sheer coverage.
      I haven't embraced the full color traditional lipsticks just yet, but I am getting close! ;p

  5. oh what a lovely red shade!! you look beautiful with red lips :-D
    I am tbh not really a fan of this l'oreal caress stain formula, but I can't deny that they look pretty on a lot of people, except me. lol
    Your skin looks so radiant here!

    1. Some are not very fond of the stickiness, it seems. I don't mind it much and it is what it makes quite long lasting anyway. haha.
      Thanks for the compliment! Although it looks okay in pics, I often look quite biatchy wearing red lippies. LOL LOL

  6. Really beautiful make up! Red suits you so well. :) I do love seeing it on others, but for everyday use it stands out too much for me.. And because of that I only have one bright red /Kate Moss for Rimmel, forgotten in my drawer at the moment. :P

  8. It's gorgeous! I think the stain/shine texture makes it easier to wear.

    1. Thanks, Larie!
      Yes, I think it is another example of the importance of the formula rather than the color itself. ;)

  9. i have this in pink resistence (or somethin) and quite like it. i've been meaning to pick up endless red for a while but i always get sidetracked by other things in the drugstore :(

    1. Ah, the drugstore aisles sure distract us! I tend to shop online more nowadays and this was an impulse purchase. I was even ready to dislike the shade. LOL
      This one is a must if you already like the formula! :)

  10. You look gorgeous. You definitely look beautiful with a red lip :)

    1. Thanks, May!
      The swatch looks surprisingly warmer. It is actually quite neutral maybe even leaning cool. :)

  12. You look great with red lips! It's very dramatic and understated at the same time. If that makes sense.

    1. I think you pretty much summed it up, Wendy!
      I agree the texture makes it so much easier to wear. ;)
      Thanks!

  13. I have two of these and totally share your love of them- they're lovely. Endless Red looks great on you! I get what you mean about it being wearable despite being bright too, I think it's in the translucency.

    1. I am glad to hear you enjoy the range as well.
      They are my staples for busy days. Love how comfortable they feel on my lips. Nowadays I'm more about the formula and wear than the color, and this one is a pretty color. a win-win. ;)

      The formula really works for me but I personally want to see more colors from the range. ;)

  17. I am the same way, I really have to take a deep breath before I put on bright colors. This one looks very nice on you. It is almost deep red, but bit of lightness too it. I don't know if it makes sense. I have not tried this myself, but I own a stain gloss from Maybelline, which seems to be have a similar result. I like that one so far, maybe after I am done with that, I will venture out to new ones.

    1. I haven't tried the Maybelline version of this, but would love to get some more colors since I feel I have all the colors I want from this L'Oreal range.
      The sheer formula makes it so much easier to wear different colors. I wish I knew this sooner! :)
