I picked up this product after seeing it on a top 10 list somewhere (who knows where at this point). After browsing the beautiful shades, I decided on India. I don’t really have a color exactly like it, and am trying to break my stupid habit of buying the same types of shades in different brands. Branching out a bit!
Upon my first application, I knew I was going to love this formula. It glides on and is creamy, thick and lush. This is not your typical thin, gone-in-five-minutes gloss. It has some serious lasting power. After a few hours (and many, MANY coffees later) the product fades gracefully into a beautiful stain. Not the type of stain that shows every single crack and imperfection in your lips, but a nice even stain that still looks great. So aside from the awesome formula and lasting power, my favorite part of this lip product is the SHINE. Guys!!! The shine is ridiculous. It has a serious mirror effect. Don’t confuse this was cheap, glittery/shimmery glosses from middle school. It’s an adult, classy shine that is anything but cheap looking. As stated in the name, it does have a moisturizing effect. Most stains cling to lips and end up drying them out – the worst possible scenario for lip color. This is such a creamy, moisturizing formula and makes your lips feel great – even after you take it off. I should also mention that it doesn’t have a trace of sticky or tacky in the formula. It goes on wet, and dries down to a non-sticky finish.
I love wearing this on lazy days – I’ll throw minimal other makeup on and have this gloss be the star. You really don’t need much else. It might be an illusion, but it’s almost as if it makes me look more awake. I’m really happy with the shade I chose, and would definitely be open to trying out other shades in the line (not something I usually do).
Have you guys tried this? Do you love it? Thanks for reading!
