L'Oreal Glam Shine is one of my favourite lip glosses. I have several lip glosses from this range in different shades. I am now reviewing number 101 Pink Moon.
I like this range of lip glosses because they come in such lovely colours and also because they feel so nice and comfortable to wear.
Another advantage is that I like to take a few of my lip glosses on holiday with me and so I go for the smaller and lighter items to pack in my suitcase, as toiletries and those make-up items soon make the weight add up. Not a few little lip glosses I know but when you add everything up it’s surprising just how much the beauty products and toiletries weigh.
Pink Moon is a lovely colour; it really is pretty. It’s a light and pearly pink colour which I think is suitable for daytime wear as well as the evening. It’s also a lovely shade to wear around the pool on holiday and it looks good with a tan.
The biggest advantage for me with this lovely range is that the lip gloss really does feel nice to wear. I prefer it to many other lip glosses because it feels smooth and moisturising on the lips and it is light and natural rather than heavy, therefore it is comfortable.
I don’t find that my lips dry out or become irritated when wearing this particular lip gloss.
L’Oreal Glam Shine is lovely to apply. The small bottle unscrews easily and the applicator sponge is integrated into the lid. The sponge is a good shape, perfect to add definition, shape and lovely colour to one’s lips.
I like the smooth and creamy texture and the high shine look of this lip gloss.
It is available from chemist, supermarkets and on-line beauty retailers,
I purchased my last L’Oreal Glam Shine from Boots. It was priced at £6.99 but I bought other items in a three for two make-up offer. This meant it was a much better bargain.
I don’t tend to wear a lot of make up but I do like to use lipstick and gloss. I often wear a lip gloss on top of my lipstick to give added shine to my lips. I shop in Boots on a regular basis and therefore accumulate lots of loyalty points on my card. I like to use the points to treat myself and recently opted to use my points in exchange for an L’Oreal glam shine lip gloss.
I am a fan of L’Oreal products and have used their lip glosses in the past although my one complaint is that they never last very long. However this one claimed to last for 6 hours! I really liked the choice of colours on offer and after a lot of deliberation opted for always pink as I thought it would go well over my Yves Saint Lauret lipstick.
The lip-gloss comes in a thin 6ml clear plastic tube with silver lid. The lid contains the shaped sponge applicator. On the positive side this lip gloss is really easy to apply and the applicator delivers the right amount of gloss. The sponge applicator is specially shaped to make it easy to follow the contours of my lips. The colour looks great and suits my complexion.
On the negative side the lip gloss feels quite sticky and leaves a heavy feeling on my lips. Although I was sceptical about that 6 hour claim, I was hopeful that this gloss would at least last longer than other lip glosses. However to my disappointment it really didn’t last for long at all. I find I still need to reapply after eating or drinking and at best it only lasts for about an hour.
Overall I would buy this again as I love the colour. I do think the £8.69 price tag is a bit steep for a lip gloss that really is no different to others on the market.
I don't particularly like wearing lipstick but I do lick to have something on my lips to give them a bit of colour and to stop them looking so plain. I really like L'oreal as a brand and I do trust their product and so I bought the Glam Shine Lip Gloss.
What does the product do?
The product promises to deliver a burst of colour to the lips with a non sticky finish. It contains light reflecting particles to give the lips a gorgeous glossy finish and it has hydrating properties so your lips should be left feeling moisturised and soft. Your lips should be left feeling as lovely as they look.
The product comes in different shades which are grouped into different categories which include sparkly, pearly and holographic. Each gloss comes with a delightful name such as Pink Moon, Bubble Pink, Juicy Rose Glow and Miss Candy. They mainly come in pink, purples and nudes. I chose Pink Moon which is pale pearly pink shade.
Packaging and Price
The product comes in a clear tube and you can see the shade inside so you know more or less what you are getting. The name of the product is written on it and there is some silver writing and detailing. It has a silver metallic lid and the wand is contained within the lid. The applicator is made out of sponge and shaped like a heart.
The product will cost you around £7 for each gloss although you can sometimes find it on offer. It can be bought from stores such as Superdrug and Boots, large supermarkets and also from a range of online websites.
Application and Performance
The product has a lovely smell to it which is always a good thing when you are applying something directly beneath your nose. It has a sugary sweet aroma that I really like and it matches the product well. You can smell it quite evidently when applying the product and for a little while afterwards but then unfortunately it fades away.
The sponge looks cute and it is very soft on the lips. The gloss is quite thick in its consistency, which is to be expected, but it still glides easily across the lips without pulling or dragging the skin. The sponge actually holds quite a lot of gloss and I can comfortably cover both lips without re-dipping the brush. The gloss doesn't have a taste to it which is a good thing in my books as I usually end up licking the product back off when it does.
The colour is fairly sheer on the lips but there is still a beautiful lick of colour there too. Mine is a lovely frosty, pearly pink colour on the lips which is really pretty and summery. It is perfect for both daywear and nightwear. It could be worn on top of a pink lipstick to get a glossy finish. The gloss is tacky on the lips but it is one of the least sticky glosses that I've ever used. It feels completely comfortable on the lips and it hasn't caused me to develop any irritations.
It does have a lovely shiny finish and my lips do look pretty when I am wearing the product, even if I do say so myself! The product does feel hydrating on the lips and it does feel like it is moisturising them well. When the product is removed, my lips are soft and in a good condition as opposed to being dry. The product has quite long lasting results and it will stay in place on my lips for a couple of hours, even when eating and drinking. I do need to reapply the product before the end of the day or night but this is easily and quickly done.
All in all, this is a good lip gloss which is as unsticky as a lip gloss is ever going to get. It gives a nice lick of colour to the lips with a beautifully glossy finish. It smells delicious, hydrates the lips and it is fairly long lasting. I would happily buy another shade of these glosses.
I like to wear some L'oreal Glam Shine on my lips when I am wanting to highlight my lips with some shine and just a bit of colour. I tend to go more for nude shades with this than I usually would with a lip colour as the colours themselves aren't very dark anyway but they do give a lovely shimmer and shine.
I absolutely love the heart shape wand applicator that comes with this as it makes applying the gloss so easy to do and I find that it is so accurate that there is no need for a mirror.
The gloss is very sophisticated and it doesn't make my lips too bright due to the colours being more muted. The more muted colours make this a good gloss for any occasion as it would suit being worn to most places.
I also really like to wear this gloss over another lip colour to give it extra punch. I usually wear it over a matt lipstick and I think it gives a really nice effect this way.
The gloss isn't sticky and it is quite hard wearing and doesn't transfer and come off easily. I find that one light coating is usually enough for daytime wear and I can easily build it up a little if I wanted to wear it in the evening and have it more noticeable.
It leaves my lips feeling nice and moisturised and when I remove it they still have some moisture left in them. When it is on my lips feel much plumper and more luscious than they do normally and it certainly helps to make them look a bit more full than they normally do.
It is a really nice gloss to wear. I do wish there were maybe some more vivid colours to choose from just so that I could have a selection but the pink colour that I have does give them a little splash of colour and as I mentioned when I put it on top of a lipstick it makes the colour look much more vibrant and also helps keep it lasting longer.
Glam shine is a great lip gloss for £7.69. It looks and feels lovely on my lips and the only slight criticism for me personally is that I would ideally like to have a bigger choice of colours to choose from as I have to use another brand if I want something a bit brighter.
I'm not a fan of lipstick, if I wear any makeup on my lips it has to be lip gloss. Even then I don't wear it all that often and is only usually worn on a night out somewhere. A couple of lip glosses I'm using at the moment are the L'Oreal glam shine ones.
There are many different shades available to purchase of this L'Oreal glam shine lip gloss, some of these include Pink Moon, Coral Strass, Miss Candy and Sand Crystal. The majotirty of the different shades are natural pink colours with a couple being more in your face deep pinks, purples and browns. The lip gloss is available to purchase from the likely places such as Boots and Superdrug for anything between £4 - £8 depending on where you buy it.
The lip gloss comes inside a transparent tube with a silver colour lid that is also used to apply the lipgloss. After opening the tube and pulling out the applicator wand, you are greated with a sponge heart shaped applicator which is different compared to other brands of lip gloss. The shape of this wand makes it easy to contour the wand around the shape of your lips without any troubles.
The lip gloss only takes one quick swoop across your lips to get a nice even coverage. The look it achieves with just a quick swoop is fantastic considering not a lot of care and attention has gone into the application process. It gives a very shiny appearance but despite the shiny appearance it doesn't feel sticky or horrible when you are wearing it. I have this lip gloss in a couple of shades and both give the shiny appearance despite one being a more natural shade and one being a deep pink shade.
When drinking with the lip gloss on it does tend to leave lip marks around the rim of glasses and cups which can be annoying, and obviously wears the lip gloss down so it needs to be reapplied more. The small tube means it's easy to fit into my handbag so I can reapply when I might need too and the application process is quick so it's not a problem for me.
The tube contains 6ml of glam shine lip gloss and I have yet to finish each tube, this is mainly because I don't wear it all that often but I think it would last quite well even if I did use it a lot.
The price tag is quite high for a simple lip gloss, however the look it gives your lips definitely makes it worth it. I would recommend L'Oreal glam shine as it does leave lips looking shiny and it's very easy to apply.
I confess to be a lipgloss addict. I am that girl at the next desk who has exactly twelve varieties littered in the bottom of her handbag so she has a choice and one for every eventuality. However, L'Oreal's Glam Shine may have finally been the one able to tame me. I purchased the lighter shade, a delicate pretty pink menagerie of shades designed to give you volume and dimension on your lips. The bottle itself is quite quite, compact compared to other lip glosses, capped with a silver lid that unscrews to reveal a triangular shaped wand that makes it all the more easier to apply as it contorts to the shape of your lips.
It virtually glides on, instantly giving fantastic shine. Very satisfied with the initial result, I can't wait to see how it wears throughout the day.
I have to say on that note that it's a very average lipgloss, hair clings to it horribly in the wind, and I find within an hour I could do with reapplication. An unpleasant residue also clings to my lips. However, unlike many lip glosses, you're not given that gritty texture. It's merely sticky and tacky.
I reapply, this time, over lipstick. And it's perfect. It lasts much longer and seems to eventually just blend into my lipstick making sure I don't get that post-lipgloss effect.
I can't criticize, this lipgloss doesn't claim to be long lasting, it gives volume, shine and dimension and it's just so cute. You get such a good colour variety too. The only real disadvantage of this product is the lack of life on your lips, a couple of hours maximum, and the fact that hair sticks into it horribly. Would really recommend despite these faults, it really is a good lipgloss that gives an excellent finish initially.
I used to be a lipstick girl only years ago. Back then I would stick to the same brands and colours of makeup and never change. Then as I got older and more confident applying makeup I started experimenting with different colours and brands and now love creating different looks to match what I'm wearing or for night time or day. I have loads of these lip glosses and simply love them!!
L'Oreal Paris is the worlds largest cosmetics and beauty company and produce high quality affordable makeup which is available in most beauty outlets such as Superdrug and Boots. These lip glosses are called L'Oreal Glam Shine Lip Gloss and retail at £7.69 each. They come in a wide range of colours including Coral, Pink moon, Sapphire Strass, Aqua Pomegranite, Aqua Watermelon, Aqua Lychee, Aqua Grapefruit, Aqua Mandarin, Aqua Curacao and Aqua Lemon Tonic. The last two shades are blue and yellow which is an unusual shade for lip gloss and I can't say I've ever tried any of those shades lol
These lip glosses promise a dazzling lip plumping effect as stunning colours mix with sparkling particles. They're not those kind of glosses that sting your lips to plump them up. These just give that kind of look because of their luscious shiny appearance.
They come in a fairly small tube for a lip gloss only 6ML but I do find that they last me a decent amount of time because the colours are quite vibrant and long lasting. They have a sponge applicator which is sort of shaped like a little heart on the end sponge bit, this is good for getting the cupids bow just right. I tend to use the darker colours and love them because they go on lovely and smoothly with absolutely no stickiness at all. I would describe the colour pigmentation and coverage to that of a lipstick. But with these you get the high gloss shine as well. You know how sometimes you'll buy a lip gloss and it looks pink in the tube and you'll apply it and it's a barely noticeable colour on your lips? Well with these that's not the case. I find these very long lasting and only really need to re applya few times through the day or if I've been eating or drinking
I've been using these for years now and highly recommened them.
It's not very often that I will use lip gloss. I tend to stick mainly to lipsticks however; this one compliments my L'Oreal natural lipstick very well and sometimes uses the gloss over this to add a bit more shine. I find using lip gloss tends to mean you have to regularly check on it to see if it has smudged around your lips and to re apply it usually every 20 minutes which I just can't be bothered to do.
This was bought for me as a Christmas present along with the lipstick that it goes well with. I would never normally buy this myself, not just because it is gloss but because I normally go for colours that are a lot brighter. I tend to whip this out with more formal occasions such as work.
It's very easy and smooth to apply. The application brush is small; triangular shaped which helps is apply evenly over the lips. I do much prefer those with actually brushes on the ends as I find these glosses tend to last much longer. It looks very sparkly once applied to the lips and does stay on them for longer than most glosses I own though still not long enough to change my opinion on them.
Overall, it's not bad for a lip gloss. It does give a nice shine but I still wouldn't choose to buy this myself.
I have a couple of bottles of L'Oréal Glam Shine and they are something that I use regularly. L'Oréal Glam Shine is essentially tinted lip gloss, but it is very high gloss and so it's something that you would only wear if you want your lips to really stand out and shine. A bottle of L'Oréal Glam Shine currently costs £8.69 from Boots, and although this isn't cheap for a lip gloss, it does last ages and so the price isn't actually bad at all.
There are a variety of shades available as part of the L'Oréal Glam Shine range. I have the Keep the Secret, Fresh Cassis and Hold on Rose. The shades themselves are not really anything different from that offered from a lot of lipstick / lipgloss ranges, but that being said, they are all popular and classic colours and so you're likely to find a shade that you like. While the colours themselves are fairly muted, I think it is in the way that they shine which makes them stand out from the other glosses on offer.
Applying the gloss is very simple. The lip gloss has a wand style applicator which is attached to the underside of the screw top lid. The applicator is heart shaped and made of spongey type material and so the curved edges mean that its actually really easy to apply the gloss nearly to my lips, particularly on the top lip where the applicator seems especially well suited in shape.
The lip gloss, as I have mentioned, is shiny and it is this which makes it stand out. The gloss is quite thick and so it is a little sticky when it is first applied, but the wetness diminishes after a few minutes, but the shine doesn't. I like that the gloss will stay put for a good length of time and I would normally need to replace only after about four hours. When it is in place, and once it has dried, it does not spread or bleed and so it looks neat - and dare I say glamourous!
Overall, I really like L'Oréal Glam Shine and I will continue to use it.
I was looking through my make up bag the other day and I saw that I have a lot of these lip glosses. So I thought I would come on here and do a review as I do use them all the time.
I have a couple of these right now, but have a quite a lot, but they have run done. At the moment I have the shades 301 Coral Strass, 179 Sheer Pitaya and 172 Sheer Watermelon. But my favourite has to be 301 Coral Strass, because it is a lovely nude colour with a hint of shine. This lip-gloss is perfect for natural look. The other two colours are a bit more brighter shades.
I really love the fact that these lip-glosses have a lovely sine about them, but the texture of the lip-gloss is not sticky. I hate when lip-glosses are super sticky, but this is defiantly not a problem with these lip-glosses. These lip-glosses do not dry out my lips when I have this product on them. It does say that these lip-glosses are moisturising on the Superdrug website, and I would defiantly agree with this statement.
The wand is a heart shaped wand, which I actually really like compared with the standard shape wands. As the lip-glosses are a great texture and this added with the wand, applying this lip-gloss is easy and effortless.
The shine which these lip-glosses give is brilliant and I really love the effect I get when I use these lip-glosses.
I love that these lip-glosses are quite small in size and they are really easy to fit into my purse or bag. The lids are a silver colour and the bottom of the tube is see-through allowing you to see lovely colour of the lip-gloss.
The Lip-glosses don't have much of a distinctive smell about them, but there is a hint of a sweet smell about them.
Each lip-gloss has an amount of 6ml of product. Which is quite a lot, because these lip-glosses actually last me for quite a while. I take these lip-glosses out with me on nights out, as they are such a perfect size.
Now on to the price. On the Superdrug website these are £7.69, which I think is a bit too expensive for these. I think I bought my ages ago when they were on offer. I do really love these lip-glosses but I would defiantly recommended waiting until any offers come up on these lip-glosses before buying them.
I have two shades one is the blush formula and it's called 157 Rosewood Blush. The second is a crystal formula in the shade 112 Sapphire Strass.
The Rosewood Blush shade is a lovely nude colour that has shimmer running through it. I wouldn't wear this over a lipstick but if I had to I would say it would look great over MAC Hue or Topshop Nevada. It's super pigmented so it looks great alone which is how I wear this. I think this is my favourite out of the two, partly because of the colour but also there is something about the formula of this one that feels better on the lips that the other crystal one that I have.
The Sapphire Strass shade is a blue toned, glittery pink. It's nicely pigmented but I would say this is a gloss that needs a lipstick underneath it. The glitter is fine enough that you can't really feel it so if glitter bothers you I wouldn't say this gloss would be a problem for you.
I love the wands on these glosses. I suppose you would have to classify them and doe foot wands but they are almost heart shaped and make it easy to get a good coverage over all your lips with one easy sweep.
One of my greatest makeup loves is lip-gloss. I like it to add a natural sheen when I opt for heavy eye makeup or to provide deep colour when the rest of my makeup is minimal. Most importantly I believe that lip-gloss should be highly glossy and hence when I saw an advert for the L'Oreal Glam Shine Lip-gloss I was determined to give it a try.
The Product ~
The L'Oreal Glam Shine lip-gloss range provide a variety of natural and pink colour shades which claim to provide mirror shine for dazzling lips with a precise heart shaped applicator. Each shade of colour comes packaged in a small upright vial which is transparent to allow the lip-gloss colour to show through. A list of the colours available with this range is as follows;
* Papaya 175
* Juicy Rose 400
* Framboise 173
* Pitaya 179
* Sheer Pink 171
* Sheer Cassis 180
* Sand Crystal
Being that I usually buy neutral tones of lip-gloss I decided to float the boat and opted for the Sheer Cassis 180 colour option. This lip-gloss is a deep raspberry colour with a filtration of sparkly particles which give it a reflective shine quality.
To open, the shiny silver lid can simply be screwed off to show the unique heart shape applicator which can be applied easily to the lip. The lip-gloss is rather thick in consistency and whilst it does not taste of anything it does smell slightly sweet.
Price and Availability ~
A bottle of this lip-gloss will set you back in the region of £6 - £8 if bought in your local Boots or Superdrug. It is currently stocked in Superdrug for £7.69. However for a cheaper option it can be purchased online from Amazon for a fraction of the price at £2.50.
To apply; simply dab the applicator wand into the lip-gloss and paint a coating of colour across the lips. For stronger colour it is possible to apply a second coat.
This lip-gloss was successful in providing me with a strong colour on my lips which was highly sparkly when first applied. The heart shaped applicator made the application process much easier than normal as it gave precise application and meant that if I wanted I could line my lips with the gloss and fill them in with a more natural shade.
In my opinion the staying power of this lip-gloss left a little to be desired. Although the reflective particles looked great after first application the shine tended to fade pretty quickly leaving just a smudge of pink colour across my lips. In addition this lip-gloss does tend to be attracted to all manners of mugs and glasses meaning that the colour leaves lovely pink lips stains on every surface you drink from.
Overall this is an attractive make-up product which gives highly sparkly lip shine however I feel that it is quite expensive given the staying powers of the lip gloss unless bought as part of an offer. I would hence score it 4 stars out of 5.
Thanks for taking the time to read my review.
REASONS FOR PURCHASE
I like the Glam Shine glosses in general, but I'm going to write about my most recent Glam Shine purchase for the sake of this review. It is the L'Oreal Paris Glam Shine Fresh Lipgloss in Aqua Curacao. I was excited to try this lipgloss after reading about the summer range of 'Fresh' lipglosses in various beauty blogs.
Aqua Curacao is clear but with a blue tint. Blue tinted lipglosses supposedly make your teeth look whiter. I was intrigued to put it to the test!
I purchased by gloss from Boots and here is what they have to say about the Glam Shine Lipglosses in general:
"A dazzling, glamorous, lip-plumping effect as stunning colours mix with sparkling particles.
Use alone for a high gloss shine or over you favourite lip colour for a more dramatic effect."
I took to the L'Oreal website to find a bit more information that was specific to the Glam Shine Fresh range:
"Drench your lips in Glam Shine Fresh. L'Oreal Paris presents its first lip gloss enriched with vitamin C & E.
Available in 7 tangy shades: from bright yellow to cobalt blue and mandarin. It applies sheer on lips to give a subtle pop of day-glo fresh colour."
PRICE / AVAILABILITY / APPEARANCE
You can pick this lipgloss up for £7.69 from Boots Online. This is for the standard 6ml tube. Not that big to be honest! If you're happy to shop around online you can pick up one of these glosses for £6. Already it's sounding much more reasonable!
The Glam Shine Fresh lipglosses are available at most branches of Boots and some Superdrug stores nationwide, as well as some larger supermarkets and online shops too.
The tube looks pretty standard. It's slightly curved so it is widest at the top of the lid and base, and narrower in the middle. The tube is clear so you can see the colour of the gloss you're getting, have a silver lid, and a wide doefoot applicator brush.
Firstly, when I opened my tube of lipgloss I was impressed with the applicator. It's quite wide compared to a lot of lipgloss doefoot applicators, and somewhat tapered to the shape of your lips. This makes application a breeze.
When I went to apply, I have to say I was a little put off by the scent. I prefer lipglosses to be scent free, or if not, then smell of something a bit sweet like a hint of vanilla. This lipgloss however, has a slightly floral / perfume like scent in my opinion, and it seemed odd for a product that goes on your mouth! It is in no way unpleasant, just a little surprising!
So I applied my gloss and was impressed at how silky and smooth it felt gliding over my lips. As I said before, the slant of the applicator made it easy to apply, not that it would matter anyway, since it is so sheer!
L'Oreal would have you believe that you'll see some sort of colour payoff from the tube to lips. This is very unrealistic and you'll probably know this straight off from seeing how sheer the colour is in the tube and on the applicator! Anyway, the optimist in me was hoping that there would be a hint of blue on my lips. I have to say I'm a big fan of unusual colours!
There was no hint of blue on application, but whatever tiny amount of pigment there is, DOES make my teeth look whiter. I can't work out if this is just because the idea was put in my head or if it works, but either way, I'm quite impressed here!
I was very impressed with my initial application and thought the gloss worked best on bare lips with my normal 'day time' makeup. It pretty much lasts until I have something to eat. A drink or two and your lipgloss will still pretty much be there, if only a little lighter than after initial application. As with 99% of glosses though, you'd need to reapply this one after a snack or meal.
I was surprised at the RRP of this gloss since it's a 'High Street' brand that you can pick up from a chemist. I would expect to pay between £4 - £6 considering the brand and size of tube. That being said, a lipgloss will always last you a good while, and the Aqua Curacao 'hint of blue' shade is quite unique to high street makeup. You'd struggle to find a similar colour at a similar price.
If you quite fancy having the appearance of ever so slightly whiter teeth, then try this one out! I probably won't try any other colours in the Glam Shine Fresh range, but I'll stick with this one and would probably repurchase.
I've been impressed with the applicator, staying power and hint of barely there sheer colour. And a bit disappointed with the scent. The pros for me do outweigh the cons though!
These are available in Superdrug or Boots for around £7.
I bought mine in the shade 'Coral' which looked like a beige pink in the bottle. It appealed to me as i was looking for a natural shade for the day time and i thought this would be suitable.
You open the bottle and attached to the lid is an applicator which you apply the product with.
The colour came out really nice. It was quite a peachy colour. There are darker colours in the range if you want something more dramatic. And there is a wide range of colours so there should be something for everyone.
As you can probably tell by the title of the product, this does make your lips look shiny and gives a real glisten to your lips but without looking too over the top so still suitable for daytime. It also made my lips look plumper, im not sure where this was solely down to the product or also to do with the colour- probably a bit of both.
However i did find it really sticky and my hair did keep getting stuck to my lips which was annoying, but i have yet to find a lip gloss where this doesn't happen.
It also doesn't have much staying power and after eating and drinking i had to keep on reapplying throughout the day but yet again i have not found a lip gloss or lipstick that stays on after eating and drinking.
I think it is quite a good product but i think it is too expensive for what it is. I would say the £4 mark would be more accurate.
I love the look of lip gloss but I find that it is often too greasy and gooey for me to put up with. I decided to try this one though as a friend had recommended it after finding that it was more like a cross between a lipstick and a gloss for consistancy.
I bought a gloss in 156 Sunlight Blush as I have a mid-olive complexion and brown hair. I prefer darker lip colours and this was another reason I had been avoiding gloss as the colour range is often too light for me.
The consistancy of the product was perfect - I found that it was just sticky enough to cling to my lips but just glossy enough to shine. I also didn't have to fight the temptation to wipe it off after 5 minutes! in terms of colour, there is a nice 'stain' effect on my lips which doesn't look too caked and has a lovely shimmer to it. It seems to last as well, with my not needing to reapply between leaving the house and lunchtime. On a night out it has been brilliant as well - my foundation seems to slip before my lipgloss does!
I'd definately buy this again and am even tempted to try one of the lighter shades as an experiment as this one was such a success!
L'Oreal Glam Shine 6HR Lip Gloss is L'Oreal's first lip gloss that shines for up to 6 hours! Offering a perfect balance between shine and staying power, just one sweep is enough to achieve plump, beautiful looking lips /
