So as you can see from the swatches the pigment is really intense and bright. Wonderful and i must say the stain was also just as pigmented on my lips. The wand is just like the YSL one and fits the lip perfectly making application really easy and no need to worry it will go everywhere. It fits the contour of the lip really well and also its so soft.
The stain is really light and transfers well to the lip, its not a sticky gloss but more of a light feeling and fragrance of sweet almost cherry like. I always usually apply a balm and when i first tried this product to see if it was needed then i must say it got a little drying so i would prime your lip before hand with a little balm just to add a little extra to the lips. I however personally have lips that do dry quite quickly so if you don't have this problem then you may not need this. Its just how my lips go in cold weather.
When i did it the second time and primed my lips, i didn't have this problem so it will i also think last longer if the lips are primed.
Colour is fabulous and the stain, well it stains the lips really and wont move. It is very similar in the sense of application method to pigment and finish from what I've seen, i will be very interested to see what people think whom do have the YSL , how this compares to it.
As far as if i think this is worth the £7.99 price tag then yes i do, as its defiantly the nicest stain I've tried in terms of the pigment, feeling and the presentation of the product is really stunning for the fact its a high street brand.
So it really does show that no matter what brand it is you can make it look beautiful like the high end of the market so i think Loreal have done a wonderful job on this product.
Do you have any of the lip stains ? How do you think High street is comparing to High end now ?
