A high-comfort gloss: women’s dream, made reality by Lancôme

Combining shine, even colour and comfort: Gloss In Love achieves this seemingly impossible feat.

Its secret: at the heart of a magnifying glass-effect crystalline base, the breakthrough association of two polymers – one glossy, one flexible – to form a supple, shiny three-dimensional network on lips’ surface. Pigments and mother-of-pearl to shine through to their fullest potential, allowing for radiant colour with this new-generation absolute-comfort and non-sticky texture, able to moisturise lips for 6 hours.

A sensual fragrance

Gloss In Love exudes a subtle scent of mouth-watering vanilla, lifted by a fresh fruit cocktail. Addictive!

A two-in-one applicator

A precise and simple application: LancĂ´me creates its first ever double-sided applicator. In a single step, made up of two strokes, it defines lips without flattening them or detracting from their natural shape.

1. The lower lip side: its curved side hugs the lower lip’s surface, applying the texture with perfect uniformity so as to amplify shape and shine.

2. The upper lip side: simply turn the applicator around to discover a high-precision tip to enhance the upper lip contour with all the dexterity of a make-up artist. Unprecedented!

Colour… in a click

Imprinted with the words Gloss In Love its crystal bottle reveals the formula within, pure colour and mother-of-pearl. Then comes the click… Just press down and the cap is gently released, making it even easier to use. A signature sound infused with addictive chic.

Rouge In Love: super-shiny colour in six new shades

The Rouge In Love palette is enriched with 6 new colours, as surprising and easily addictive as ever: radiantly pure and vibrant reds, oranges and pinks…

Including Fall In Rose, a petal-pink with the power to freshen every complexion, already emerging as a cult shade. Lastly, Rouge In Love offers an incredible range of 33 colours: an almost infinite reservoir of possibilities so you can live in glorious technicolor at all times!

Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Gloss- 20 Glisten Up Pink: Review, swatch

Hey everyone!
Maybelline recently launched a whole new set of lip glosses, the High Shine Lip Gloss range in the market. The products are now available at the stores, and here’s my review on the shade ‘Glisten Up Pink‘. Read on!

maybelline high shine lip gloss review

About Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Glosses: Lavish lips with a molten hot glaze
  • More Vibrant Color from pure liquid pigments
  • Cleaner Shine from our 100% wax-free gloss
  • Creamier feel from nourishing honey nectar
  • Now gloss goes gutsy in 8 arresting shades

Price: Rs. 350 for 5mL.

Packaging: The Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Glosses come in a new, stylish tube packaging. The tube is a long, transparent one with a silver cap, attached on the underside of which is the applicator wand. The applicator is a bent doe-foot type applicator, soft and does it’s job well. The bent angle makes gloss application easier. The other thing I noticed about the packaging is the suction-y separator (see the below pic) at the mouth of the tube. You can feel some kind of suction when you are putting the applicator back in, and the separator keeps the applicator stick clean of any excess gloss. No mess, yayy!

My take on Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Gloss- Glisten Up Pink: Glisten up Pink is a true-to-its-name shade. It is a pearly (not shimmery) light pink shade, well pigmented, and is smooth in texture. The gloss is not too sticky, unlike other glosses, and has a decent staying power of about 2-3 hours on top of a lipstick or lip liner. The product also does not settle into fine lines. The gloss keeps the lips hydrated for about 1-1.5 hours.
In my opinion, the shade will work for those with light to medium complexion, and especially for those with non-pigmented lips. Since I am neither fair, nor do I have non-pigmented lips, I lined and filled my lips with the Maybelline Color Sensational lip liner- Velvet Beige (review HERE) before using the gloss on top, and I’m quite happy with the result. This way, the shade worked for my complexion too.

How to use: Using the doe foot applicator, apply the gloss in sweeping motions across the upper and lower lip. Pucker the lips lightly to evenly spread the product.

Pros of Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Gloss- 20 Glisten Up Pink:
  • Smooth texture, spreads easily
  • Does not settle into fine lines
  • Non-sticky, light weight
  • Decent staying power of 2-3 hours for a gloss
  • The bent doe-foot applicator is easy to work with
  • I love the functional and thoughtful packaging
  • Easily available, decently priced
Cons of Maybelline Colorsensational High Shine Lip Gloss- 20 Glisten Up Pink:
  • The shade ‘Glisten Up Pink’ may not suit everyone!
Verdict: Well, if you are a gloss-girl, I think you should try atleast one of these! For the summers here in India, these are available in a variety of bright shades, have a light feel, smooth texture, and stay put pretty well! Glisten Up Pink is a pearly, light pink shade, so you may want to try it before buying!

Rating: 8.5/10 

Have you picked up any shades from the new range yet? I would love to pick up Gleaming Grenadine and Captivating Coral also from this range!

Lotus Herbals Purestay lip gloss- Rose Bud: Review, swatches

Hey everyone!

Today I’m reviewing one of the products I’m going gaga over these days. It’s the Lotus Herbals Purestay Lip Gloss in the shade Rose Bud. When I received this product, on seeing the shade from outside the tube, I felt a little sad, coz reddish shades I do not wear on a daily basis, and I’m not much of a gloss person. But on swatching, my opinion completely changed. Read on to know the what’s, why’s and how’s~!

Ingredients: Active ingredients: Evening primrose oil, grape seed oil and vitamin-E

My take on Lotus Herbals Purestay lip gloss- Rose Bud: The shade Rose Bud is a reddish gloss with a hint of coral in it (I don’t find any rosy-ness in the shade). The shade is beautiful, and since it’s not a shocking red, anybody can carry it off at any time.It is devoid of any shimmer particles, and is quite a pigmented product for a gloss. This is so far the most pigmented gloss I’ve seen, and it covers lip pigmentation by almost 80-90% (I have pigmented lips, so I quite like this). A beautiful shade on it’s own, I have been wearing it quite often these days, mostly to work!
The texture is smooth, and slightly sticky, but not very sticky, I’d say. I have used stickier and heavier glosses, and this one’s better on that ground. The gloss has no fragrance to it, thankfully!
The staying power is an average 2-2.5 hours, which increases a bit if you use a n*de lip liner below. The gloss does not bleed as such, but it does transfer to coffee mugs. It keeps the lips moisturised for about an hour, after which you’re left with faded color on the lips. It does not settle into fine lines, rather it plumps up the lips, marginally though, for a few minutes after application. Nothing over-the-top, though.

Pros of Lotus Herbals Purestay lip gloss- Rose Bud:

  • Rose bud is a beautiful reddish shade, will work for a lot of complexions
  • Non-sticky, light-weight gloss
  • Does not bleed
  • Awesome pigmentation
  • Decent staying power for a gloss
  • Nice packaging
  • Decently priced
  • Preservative free

Cons of Lotus Herbals Purestay lip gloss- Rose Bud:

  • Full ingredients list is missing

Verdict: I’m smitten by the pigmentation and the shade, and I think if you’re starting to wear red lips, you must check this out. It has a decent staying power, and is affordable too!

Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss- 02 Shine City: Review, swatches

Hey everyone!

Today I’m reviewing the Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss in the shade Shine City. These days, I sometimes like to use a light, clear gloss on my lips instead of the regular matte lips. I guess, this current phase in my mind is about slightly glossy lips. So a clear gloss comes handy when you want to add some shine and moisture to the lips, without altering the shade of the lipstick underneath. Read on to know my take on this product.

My take on Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss- 02 Shine City: The shade 02- Shine City looks like a light pink coloured gloss, with silver shimmer particles, in the tube. On swatching, you get a nearly transparent/ clear gloss with fine silver shimmer, sparsely distributed. The gloss has a smooth consistency, is thick in texture, and applies evenly. Being almost a clear gloss, it does not alter the shade of the lipstick underneath. The shimmer particles are too few, and you hardly get any major amount of shimmer onto your lips (and I prefer it that way). I mostly use this gloss over lipsticks, or when I use a certain shade of lip liner all over the lips. The gloss feels a little heavy on the lips in the beginning, but not too uncomfortable as such (glosses ARE meant to be a little heavy). The glitter particles are not gritty, and do not remain stuck on the lips like with other glitter glosses. It stays for about 2-3 hours on the lips, and does transfer if worn heavily. Overall, I’m quite happy with my purchase.

I have worn this lip gloss over MAC Lip Pencil- Plum (review here) in the below pic:

Pros of Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss- 02 Shine City:

  • Smooth gloss, applies evenly
  • Smooth glitter particles
  • Almost clear shade, does not alter the shade of lipstick underneath
  • Keeps the lips moist and supple
  • Stays for about 2-3 hours (which is good staying power for a gloss)
  • Fragrance free
  • The tube says it has SPF-15
  • Chic packaging
  • Easily available

Cons of Revlon Super Lustrous Lip Gloss- 02 Shine City: None as such. 

Verdict: If you’re looking for a clear gloss, well, this one is almost clear, and can be a good bet. Do check it out!
