Pros: Shimmering Shine, Feels Great On, Gorgeous Colors
Cons: Not Long Wearing, Scent & Taste
I am, without a doubt, addicted to lip gloss. I have to try every new gloss I come across. What makes it so bad is that makeup companies literally feed the addiction by coming out with new glosses on a constant basis. Which is how I came to add to my ever growing gloss collection. L'Oreal recently introduced their newest product L'Oreal Glam Shine Lip Gloss, and when I came across it, I couldn't resist it!
I purchased my sleek tube of L'Oreal Glam Shine Lip Gloss at my local Wal-Mart for $6.97. This product can be found where L'Oreal products are sold, varying in price.
L'Oreal Glam Shine Lip Gloss comes in a very sleek twist top tube with the normal soft tip applicator. The bottom half of the tube is clear so that you can see the color choices. Speaking of the colors, they really do have some gorgeous colors to choose from. While the selection isn't large, there are many variations to choose from. Most of the colors are fairly light colors, which of course make them perfect for those fresh summer looks. The darkest color is Starlet (which I chose) and it is a slightly dark mauve. A clear gloss is also available, making it a perfect way to add something "more" to your regular lipstick colors.
L'Oreal Glam Shine Lip Gloss has teeny tiny shimmering specks throughout the tube, and when applied to lips create a dramatic shimmering affect. This lip gloss also has a scent to it, which, I can really do without, but, more on that later.
I love to wear glosses all year round, winter, summer, fall, it doesn't matter. For me, lip gloss is a very quick and easy way to add some color and shine, without lining my lips, applying color, blotting, etc. With two children, my primping time is pretty limited, so the easier it is, the better off I am.
L'Oreal Glam Shine Lip Gloss appeared to be the perfect gloss for me. I love that high shine look a gloss provides, and I also love anything shimmery. L'Oreal rolled both of my favorite things into one tube of their Glam Shine Lip Gloss.
The first time I applied this gloss to my lips I was very impressed. Unlike most glosses that can be fairly sticky, gooey, and overall difficult to wear comfortably, L'Oreal Glam Shine Lip Gloss has a very light weight formula that glides on without any heaviness. It felt wonderful on my lips, making them feel extremely soft and supple. And, unlike some other glosses I have tried, this one didn't dry out my lips at all. The color was just beautiful. It was the perfect blend of color and sheer with a gorgeous hint of shimmer. If I am going out, I love to blend this gloss with my favorite lip color, it gives it that extra "umph."
As with most glosses, L'Oreal Glam Shine Lip Gloss isn't very long wearing. In fact, I have to admit that this is probably one of the shortest wearing glosses I have tried. Another negative is the scent and the taste that scent brings with it. Maybe I'm just abnormal, but, for some reason, this scent just seems strangely strong, and if I lick my lips, I get a strange taste in my mouth. The scent isn't super strong, but it reminds me of a perfume that I can't quite put my finger on. I could really do without the scent!
I would still, despite the two negative aspects, recommend this product. I love the shine and shimmer, and it really does feel comfortable on the lips.
