L'Oreal Rouge Signature Matte Lip Stains

by - July 10, 2021

Another lipstick went to my list of favorites.  This is not a recent release, but I'd recommend this to others looking for something new to try from the drugstore.

I got a bit confused the first time I tried it.  I didn't expect that for a liquid lipstick-looking product, the formula is like a lip tint.


I Lead
is a pretty coral while I Play is burgundy, which you can wear either diffused or full.

Formula & Finish

Although the name says "matte", it leaves a shiny finish and takes a while to fully dry.  I think it is supposed to be wiped/blotted just so it stains the lips.

I love how lightweight and silky it is.  Even if you put 2nd or 3rd layer, you won't feel anything on the lips.  No stickiness too.  


The pointy doe-foot helps with a neat application and re-applying is a breeze because of the formula.

Lasting Power

The stain lasts for several hours but fades after a meal.  It's a bit of a problem for I Play though.  Since it's a dark color, it does not fade nicely.  That's why I prefer a very light application with it for a diffused lip color effect.

I want to get another MLBB shade.  For those who have tried it, what color do you recommend?

your sweetest drug,
