Product Description: Now hydration & shine meet lasting, lightweight color. With Shine Caresse, discover a lip gloss that doubles up as a lip stain. This next generation lip colour combines the texture & shine of a gloss with the long-wear ability of a stain. It delivers a lasting colour with a subtle glossy shine.

The high moisturizing gloss is non-sticky, can be worn light as a tint or intense like a lip color and stays pure even hours after application.

I have been itching to buy lip glosses for a while now. Not a lip gloss lover but still to beat the heat this summer, I wanted to have something which have a light balm like feel & also deliver in the color department. So, after swatching Maybelline Lip Polishes & Loreal Paris Shine Caresse, I got the shade Bella from the latter. First of, love love the elegant gold packaging, it looks pretty sitting on my dresser. It is practical too, as you can easily identify the shade if you have few of these. I also like the petal or heart shaped applicator, which makes the applying of color on the lips so easy – I use the tip to outline the lips & then I use the flat portion to fill in the color, its perfect!

Since, its summer time I wanted a shade which has a neutral tone to it, yet brightens up the face. Bella is exactly that kind of color – rosy neutral shade which I think will go well with all skin tones. When applied initially, it looks like it doesn’t impart color to the lips. It is only after few minutes of application, actual color shows up. And it is so glossy, that all I am wearing nowadays is this lip gloss & skipping everything including a liner! It is very hydrating, keeps my lips moisturized throughout the day, even after it fades away. What surprises me is the texture, for a non-gloss person who despises the stickiness, it is almost non-sticky. This gloss feels like water when freshly applied & then it settles for a very light sticky finish after few minutes.

Though the color may seem to be not highly pigmented but once settled on the lips, it easily lasts for 5-6 hours. It even survives light meals, drinks etc & doesn’t really transfer on the rim of cups. As claimed by loreal, it leaves behind a soft even & un-patchy stain after 5-6 hours. Absolutely loving these Lip Colors for summers!
