Cheap Thrills is a weekly feature, in which an economically-priced beauty product is reviewed. Is there a product that you would like to see mentioned here? Let me know!
L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain in "Lilac Ever After" is one of the most interesting products that I have tried in a long time. It is a lipstick, lip gloss, lip balm, and a stain, all rolled into one.
"Lilac Ever After" is a neutral pink-mauve, your-lips-but-better shade with a hint of very tiny gold micro sparkles. The sparkles can't really be seen, but they are definitely there to give your lips more dimension, more of a pouty appearance.
What I love most about this product is how creamy it feels. Really! There is absolutely no stickiness here. I think that the Colour Riche Wet Shine Stain a success with me is the fact that it is very balanced, for the lack of a better description. It is not completely opaque like a lipstick, nor is it oily-glossy like a lipgloss either. Imagine a semi-glossy, sheer liquid lipstick with a creamy texture, a hint of sparkles, all wrapped up in a very creamy formula.
I bought this on a whim at Target for approximately $6, and I can definitely say that I will purchase more in the future.
