I was recently shopping for make up bits and pieces and given that Superdrug was offering a buy two get one free offer, decided to just buy several items I had never tried before.
I am the world's worst for losing make up and so never want to spend a lot of money on products which I will probably use so this product costing £2.99 seemed good value.
The lip gloss is available in 14 different shades, mostly quite muted looking and nothing too bright. I chose the Rivington Rose colour which when looked at through the tube looks like a very muted pink but not sickly or pale, and it looks like it has a very slight shine.
The packaging is completely inoffensive, just a clear bottle through which I can see the lip gloss. The tube has all of the information and instructions on the back and the name of the product on the front. It's not especially classy looking but neither is it nasty looking; a middle of the road lip gloss packaging.
It comes in a 7.2ml tube with a screw on/off lid and when I open it, the applicator is like a little flat sponge. This I prefer to the products whereby I have to dip my finger into the tub to get the lip gloss out. The sponge itself is nice and soft and a good size for applying the product to the lips, being not too big or too small; and with just taking the wand out of the tube and giving the tube a squeeze I can apply sufficient lip gloss with one application. The only thing I didn't like is the fact that when I pull out the sponge, some of the lip gloss is left hanging off the sponge and it looks a bit stringy.
When I apply the lip gloss it does go on nice and smoothly and gives nice coverage. The colour as expected is muted and although there is a very slight shimmer, it's not too obvious and is subtle enough that I can wear the lip gloss for work through the day. It does give a nice glossy sheen to my lips but is not an obvious colour but rather just gives my lips a bit of a shine. The lip gloss is slightly sticky when first applied although it does make my lips feel slightly moisturised. The lip gloss doesn't need to be removed with any type of make up remover because it doesn't last overly long. It actually lasts until I have a drink and then seems to come off onto the cup; thankfully its not a bright colour so I don't leave stains on the cup!
For the money the lip gloss is decent enough. It does make my lips feel slightly more moisturised than when I wear no lip gloss and gives my lips a nice sheen which works for day or night wear. It's a bit sticky and not very long lasting but if like me you just like to have a lip gloss handy then this is good value for money.
Thanks for reading
