For the longest time I was not a fan of any type of lip gloss until one day I changed my mind and decided to try the L'Oréal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash and I liked it. I'm also a sucker for anything YSL and have had my eye on the glossy stains for a while and I had quite a lot of Boots points to use, so I treated myself to it. Both lip products have been known to be quite similar, I'm going to share with you my opinions on them, if they really are alike and worth the money.
L'Oréal Paris Glam Shine Stain Splash
YSL Rouge Pur Couture Vernis À Lèvres Glossy Stain
A little bit pricey at £22.50 and it is expected from a designer lip product. As per usual YSL have beautiful packaging, I think girls are a lot like magpies, we like pretty, shiny things. I went for a deeper, darker colour in number 10, it is a red with a hint of magenta. I'm just going to say it, I love it. The colour is just what I was looking for, there are also a wide range of colours available. Most importantly it lives up to its name of 'glossy stain' it is a nice non-sticky gloss. I have to be careful when applying it because of how well it stains the lips so I don't accidentally smudge onto my skin, I would say it lasts me over 4 hours, I have not actually counted but one day I applied it at around lunch time, topped up once and the colour was still there when I came home in the late evening. I have found no problem with it making my lips feel dry, overall it is great.
I hope this has been useful to anyone who is thinking of purchasing either product.
