If you are that girl who loves makeup secretly but hesitate to try on, this post is for you.
Today I am going to review a lip gloss from my collection. This is best suited for a beginner who is not sure of which color/ texture of lip product to flaunt. If you are confused whether to start with a loud or neutral color… I would say neutral. Just get comfortable with the concept of lip gloss/ lipstick and later on I am sure you will flaunt any color you like.
The Lip gloss is from my favorite brand, ‘Maybelline Newyork’…!!! (Needless to say, I am a loyal customer of this brand.) I have 3 different shades in the same range. Picked up this one first for the review as it can be carried by anyone, anywhere.
So, lets get started with the review honey…!!!
What Company claims:
Give your lips a molten glaze with the new shine gloss by color sensational. Honey nectar gives you a sensational creamy wax- free glossy finish.
Total shades available in this range:
This gloss comes in a transparent plastic tube. The plastic is of good quality hence no worries about breakage. The silver colored cap is tight and thus doesn’t leak. This tube doesn’t take much space in your bag/ clutch. Hence makes it a travel friendly one. The transparency of the tube makes picking up the gloss from our huge collection easier.
The applicator plays an important role when it comes to lip products. This is of a good quality, very soft and slightly bent. Application becomes simpler due to this.
Gloss is not so thick. It falls in the ‘runny’ category. But it doesn’t bleed. When I say gloss, its not not too shiny one. Moderately shiny I can say. The texture is soft and it glides like butter.
Color pay off:
These are nicely pigmented. Color pay off is good. Little goes long way.
This shade ‘Mirrored Mauve’, is a lightest pink shade. That’s why it can be carried by beginners too. It adds shine to your lips along with a very natural soft pink shade, which looks natural. When you flaunt loud eye makeup, you can opt for this lip gloss to keep lips neutral and natural.
We can not expect a lip gloss to stay for longer duration. This stays for couple of hours with food. After that the glossy part disappears. But it does leaves a mild tint on your lips.
My lips are usually dry. This is the ‘One important’ quality I look for in a lip product. These gloss are very moisturizing. I don’t feel the need to use a lip balm before this. This doesn’t dry out and exaggerate the fine lines on your lips.
