Thoughts: When I saw this at Walmart, I knew the selection was slim. They did not even have the color the model was wearing.
Out of the ones they had, I choose Rose On And On. They list the name on top of the tube.
I actually like the packaging. It's very simple and classic looking. The quality of the packaging I have to say it's better than their eyeshadow quad, L'Oreal Colour Riche Eye Shadow. I reviewed one from their Smokey Eyes in Sultry Seductress. It's not as weak as the lid of the eyeshadow quad, but both products grab fingerprints. The lip stain gets less scratches and will not crack like the eyeshadow quad.
Like I said earlier, most L'Oreal lip products have scents that I'm not keen on. This product has a slight scent if you put the product to your nose. It smells like a fruity perfume. I only noticed the smell for couple seconds while applying the product on my lips. After couple seconds, you don't even notice it. In all honesty, I actually don't mind the scent of this product which is amazing in itself since 90% other L'Oreal lip products I cannot stand.
Here's a closer look of the tube. I think it's kind of cool having a clear plastic so you can see the color closer.
Here's a look of the brush. It looks similar to YSL Glossy Stain.
Swatch of the lip stain. It's a rosy color with slight sparkles.
Here's how the lip stain looks on my lips.
Overall opinion about this product... When you apply the lip stain, it's very cooling. It's not like lip pumping type of cooling sensation. It's just cold feeling that only lasts until it dries. I would say the cold feeling lasts for a minute or two. While it's wet, it's also sticky. Once it dries, the stickiness disappears. It lasts a long time. One thing I noticed about long lasting product, the shininess/glossiness disappears. It becomes matte. This product doesn't. The shininess/glossiness lasts the whole time until the product disappears! The lip stained stayed on my lips for a good 5 hours until I ate something. Even eating something, the stain disappeared but a minimum. It wasn't the same as applying the stain, but it still looked good. Not only was the stain shiny, but it didn't look like a lipstick on my lips. It looked like a stain if that makes sense. It was extremely gorgeous! I'm not too sure if the other colors in this line looks like this. I will definitely be purchasing more of the other colors. I just hope it's as gorgeous as this one. I really loved this color and product!

End of last year around November (I believe it was Black Friday), I visited a CCO.
I saw the cutest mini perfume. I couldn't refuse since I like the scent and it's oh so cute. I bought the DKNY Be Delicious Perfume. It's so adorable!
