So I finally bit the bullet and bought some of these new lip glosses. I love the way the packaging and the colors looks, but I was still hesitant because I don't love anything from L'Oreal.
The claim is that these glosses are light weight, high shine, long-lasting, and super moisturizing with Omega-3, Argan oil, and vitamin E. So at $7 a tube, they're cheaper than counter brands, so I ended up picking four.
There are 16 colors total, but my Wal-Mart didn't have but a few. The colors I got were Watermelon Splash, Peach Fuzz, Golden Splash, and Baby Blossom.
Watermelon Splash is a hot pink color and the display at my store had the model wearing it. When I swatched this color, it was pretty much clear. It had a slight pink sheen to it, but nothing like the hot pink that the model was wearing.
Baby Blossom is a light baby pink. I don't know how I feel about this color because I think the tube I got was defective. I can not seem to swatch the color without the gloss separating from the color.
Peach fuzz is a rich peach color. It doesn't have any shimmer in it and the pigmentation is really pretty.
Golden Splash is very similar to Peach Fuzz, except this color has golden shimmers in it. I expected this color to be very clear, but the swatch surprised me! It is actually very pigmented.
I love the smell of the glosses. It reminds me of vanilla cupcakes and candy. But if you don't like the fake sugary taste, this gloss will not be for you.
The color pigmentation varies between the different colors. I found the peachy colors to have way more pigmentation than the pinkish colors. The lasting power of these glosses are very weak. I would say mine lasted about 45 mins to an hour.
The consistency of these glosses are rich without being super thick.
In some ways, this gloss also reminds me of the beautiful packaging behind Lancome’s Juicy Tubes, with its pretty gold foil and lettering (those retail for $18 each).
