 I was ecstatic to see the release of the L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain Lip glosses which have been deemed by many fellow bloggers as a "dupe"for the Ysl Glossy Stains . I am a huge fan of the Ysl glossy stains and I own probably 10 of them ! So , needless to say I was excited to check out the drugstore counterparts .

The basic concept behind the Gloss/Stain formula is a lip gloss that dries down to a glossy look and leaves a stain as it wears . When the Ysl glossy stains are  first applied to the lips, they  feel like a lip gloss but within 10 - 15 secs they begin to thicken . They require 2-3 layers to look completely opaque and leave behind a substantial stain as they wear . I find the glossy stains to be incredibly glossy , comfortable and long wearing .The Loreal version is a lot thinner in consistency but they thicken just like the glossy stains and set with a glossy finish .

The darker colors leave behind a stain just like the glossy stains and it lasts 3-4 hours easily while the lighter colors are more translucent in comparison . I think its crucial to let the layers dry in between and not press  lips together .  I applied 3 even layers for all of the lip swatches below .


 Pink Perseverance 182
Pink Perseverance 182 is a pale milky pink in the tube but on my lips is practically clear .

 Pink Resistance 183 
Pink Resistance 183 is a baby pink with silver sparkle in the tube but in my lips is a mid tone pink . It is slightly more pigmented than 182.

Everlasting Caramel 192
Everlasting Caramel 192 is a brown in the tube but on lips looks like a rust color with slight red undertones .

 Infinite Fuschia 187

Infinite Fuschia 187 is a magenta cream in the tube and translates as a slighter darker magenta on the lips .


 Berry Persistent 186 .
Berry Persistent 186 is a pink based purple with blue iridescence in the tube and is to true to color on the lips .

Please note : my lip swatches are high definition close up of my lips and in real life all of them look opaque .

Overall , the performance of the darker shades is on par with the Ysl glossy stains but I cannot recommend the lighter shades. They too sheer to warrant a purchase . If you are looking for lighter shades  then Ysl is your best bet . They maybe uneven in application but at least they are visible . As far the the darker shades are concerned I highly recommend both the Loreal and Ysl ones . The good news is that, now there is a gloss/stain for every price point :)

Price? The Ysl ones are $32.00 a piece and the Loreal caresse stains are $7-$10 . 
Limited Edition ? No.
Where did I purchase ? Walgreens.
