L'Oreal GlamShine Stain Splash Review

Today my review is on the much hyped L'Oreal GlamShine Stain Splashes, Ive been desperate to get my hands on these after hearing they are great dupes for the YSL Glossy Stains, Which Ive been dying to get my hands on too!
I'm not a huge fan of the packaging of these, I definitely prefer the YSL Packaging. I like how they click lock, I just don't like the look of the packaging, then again I'm not really a fan of gold unless its rose gold.
The shade I got was Romy, I found there wasn't many shades, apparently there are eight shades in total, but boots only stock six, so I'm not sure why they're not all out in every store instead of just a few. Romy is a kind of bubblegum pink shade when swatched, but when on the lips its a dusty pink shade, Id really like to try Lolita too.

The actual wand is very similar to the YSL wand too, It has a dip in the middle like a reservoir for more product, which is really handy. A lot of people have also said they don't like the smell of these glosses but I love it, It is just like a artificial berry smell and taste though which has been putting people off.
The application of these is quite watery, but it soon turns into a gel like consistency which is rather weird at first, Ive been using 2-3 coats of this. The 1st coat to stain the lips and the 2nd to make them glossy. Sadly I don't have one of the amazing YSL ones to compare the pigmentation of them, but from pictures Ive seen they're not too different, maybe just one more coat to reach the same pigmentation as the YSL stains.

They last really well, Ive worn it for about 4-6 hours without touching it up.

(Swatches - Left to Right:) 1 Coat of Romy, 2 Coats of Romy, 3 Coats of Romy)
(The IPhone camera has turned them more red as well!)

Overall I really love this product and cant wait to get my hands on some other shades, The only downside for me is the fact that the packaging is gold. But other than that I think these are a great little dupe for the YSL Glossy stains and definitely a lot cheaper too just around 1/3rd of the price!

You can get these at Boots and Superdrug in the UK (Superdrug has 8 Shades while Boots has 6).

Have you tried the L'Oreal GlamShine Stain Splashes? Or the YSL Glossy Stains? What do you think about them?
