I love most Revlon products, and try them out whenever I get a chance too, sometimes their products are a little expensive, but I think that this one isn't too bad, its certainly no more than the average lip gloss you would find on the high street.
The lip gloss has a long name as you can see, but it does kind of sum up the product quite well; it does provide moisture as well as a nice looking shine. I think that this is a really good quality in a lip gloss, as some tend to dry out your lips, and can feel quite uncomfortable by being too sticky, heavy weight etc. This one in my opinion though, has a great texture, it feels really light weight, and does indeed moisturise my lips as well as making them look good.
The product once applied lasts quite well, a few hours tops, but it is a good sized product to carry around in your pocket or bag, and so is easy to reapply throughout the day.
The product in the tube also lasts quite well, I've had it for about a year and its still not run out!
I bought this lipgloss as I had gone away for the weekend and forgotten to take one with me. It was only 99p, which I thought was a bargain price, as I have always thought of Revlon as a middle of the range brand, I certainly didnt expect them to be selling products that cheap. The name also caught my eye, the moisture boosting part appealed to me as I always seem to have dry lips and if this saved me applying vaseline so much it would be a miracle worker!
The lipgloss comes in a plastic casing, with pretty lilac packaging, nothing special that really stands out. Inside the lipgloss is in a plastic squeeze tube, which I find slightly harder to put on than the tub and the brush, but its not a huge difference.
The lipgloss itself smells sweet but not too strong and it's an OK smell, nothing too horrible or overly nice! It smooths on the lips easily, and my first instinct was that the texture was a little sticky, which can be a pain if you have your hair down and go into strong wind. The colour was quite bright and striking, which is not normally me, but it was fine for a night on the town. I had to reapply every hour, but thats no surprise when most of it comes off on your drink (as with a lot of lip glosses).
The lipgloss was easy to remove with some make up wipes and my lips felt normal the next day, they didnt feel bad but they certainly didnt feel moisture boosted.
I probably wouldnt buy this again as it didnt really stand out enough for me, but it was reasonable, especially for the price, so if you are after something cheap, this is the product for you!
Revlon Vital Radiance Moisture Boosting Lip Shine: I have to admit, I was pleasantly suprised with this lipgloss!
AVAILABILITY: I picked this gloss up in Ethel Austins for 99p, and another reviewer also says she picked this up in a poundshop. I have not seen this product in any drugstores (boots, superdrug etc) so I have no idea where else would sell this gloss. I do know it is available on ebay for about £2.50 including P+P, and also on Amazon for £1.49 not including P+P.
PRICE: The price is brilliant, at 99p I cannot complain! Especially for a brand like Revlon, who's lipglosses can range from around £4-£7 in drugstores, so it is deffinatley worth it. I am planning on going back and getting a few more due to the price!
PACKAGAING: The packaging is simple but does the job. It is just a clear gloss tube which allows you to see the colour inside with a silver metallic screw on lid. It is save and my gloss has never leaked. One downside is that there is no applicator sponge, it is just a straight from the tube gloss and this enables you to get a precise application.
PRODUCT: I bought a very pale pink in this gloss and i love it. When applied it goes on a little paler than my actual lip and this creates a really shiny, silky effect. They are not immensley pigmented in any way, but they are just a really pretty simple colour great for everyday use. The gloss fills in lines and imperfections on the lips leaving them moisturized and looking fuller and thicker. Basically the title says it all! It deffinately does provide moisture, boost and shine.
Overall I would reccomend this product to any, however I wouldnt go out my way to order this on E-bay or anything - just see if you can pick it up from Ethels or the pound shop as its not an amazing gloss, its just a nice and simple one.
I picked one of these up in a pound shop, and although I haven't seen them around in other drug/beauty stores, these genuine Revlon products are often available in Poundstretchers/Poundland etc.
Vital Radiance Moisture Boosting Lip Shine is a bit of a mouthful, but put in a nut shell this is a lip gloss. It's intended to leave your lips with a hint of colour whilst moisturising and leaving lips shiny.
As I've said, I bought this from a pound store and so only paid £1 - I like my bargains but stick with branded products when it comes to make-up and skin care. At £1 for a quality lip gloss this is a bargain, but I've not seen it sold anywhere else. I've come across it on a website and it was priced around the £4 mark, so if you see one in a discount store it's definitely worth a purchase.
This came in plastic packaging, and the inner card claims the product: 'Combines sheer, shiny colour with a moisturizing forumla to nourish dry lips. Feels silky, not sticky'.
The lip gloss itself comes in a sleek plastic tube with a plastic silver screw top, and it's easy to apply by squeezing the tube and rubbing the flat plastic surface on the top over your lips. The packaging of the lipgloss is neat and looks simple yet classy, rather than tacky.
You needn't apply much to get a thin coverage over your lips for a pleasant colour and shine, so it should last a while.
I bought mine in shade 004, sheer coral, which has a nice pink tinge to it. I don't this this is intended as a full-on colour lipgloss, but more as something sheer and modest.
Because of its sheerness, you can use this alone to add some shine and moisture to your lips, or apply it on top of your lipstick. Both ways work well, and if applying it over lip stick it actually helps lock in the colour and make your lips appear fuller and more hydrated without smuding the lipstick.
Application is easy as the lip gloss is just the right consistency; not too thick that it's gooey to put on, but not too thin so that you can get a good coverage over your lips.
It does what it claims to by moisturising your lips and I did notice my lips looks healthier, with a shine and pleasant colour, whilst also looking a bit plumper. That said, it's not one to make thin lips looks full or add great colour, but it's great for a modest touch.
This seems to last a while and isn't too sticky so you can get away with good coverage for a few hours before reapplying, depending on what you're doing (ie. Drinking).
Overall I would definitely recommend this, especially if you can pick it up for £1. Because of the price I bought it at I'm tempted to give ths 5 stars so I will as it does give that moisturising boost it states.
It's a quality product made by a leader in the cosmetics industry, and it's the perfect sized, neat lipgloss that you can pop in your bag and use on any occasion.
