Loreal Glam Shine Stain in Romy...

I have long wanted to try the YSL lip stains but my purse can't quite let me part with my cash, I have been on the hunt for a cheaper alternative & the new Loreal glam shine stains look like a good drugstore dupe. 
Priced at a more purse-friendly £7.99 I picked mine up form my local boots store (or you can purchase online here.)

The packaging is simply lovely, a luxurious gold tube, with a window that shows the colour of the stain in the tube. It has a doe-foot applicator which makes application a breeze & helps to pick up a lot of product. 

The product itself applies like a lipgloss & gives a highly pigment gloss finish with the staying power of a long-wearing lipstick. The finish is that of a lip gloss, however this stuff doesn't budge - my lips still had colour on them 5,6 hours after application, this is with eating & drinking throughout the day. 
My only bugbear is that after several hours of wear the product does get a 'tacky' sort of feel to it which I can put up with although it is a little annoying. 
Below is a swatch of how it looks on the lips:

I definatley think I'm going to go back to boots & pick up some of the brighter shades as this shade is very natural looking on the lips and takes a good few coats to get the colour to show up & make a difference on the lips. 

What do you think of the Loreal glam shine stains?
