I finally spotted these at my local Walgreens and purchased 3 of them to try. I'm very excited to share with you swatches and review.
What these claims to do is provide long lasting hydration and shine. They are also supposed to be glosses and lip stains in one.
- I like the packaging. It looks cool, sleek, and fancy.
- .02 oz or 6.3 ml
- Tear drop applicator
From left to right:
- Eternally Nude (193) - this one doesn't look nude on me. Looks more like a medium coral.
- Lilac Ever After (185- this color is hard to describe but looks like a pinkish/brownish nude on me. It has some subtle gold shimmers in it as well.
- Stubborn Plum (191) - doesn't look too plummy but more pink with a hint of violet.
The formula is definitely different from what I've tried before. It looks like a tinted gel and feels very light when applied. About 30 seconds after I applied it, I'm really feeling the product bonding to my skin when I press my lips together. It doesn't feel sticky but it doesn't slip or slide like a lot of glosses do, it stays put yet provides a lovely glossy finish. They are semi-sheer and I think the color will vary depending on how pigmented your lips are. I have rather pale lips so most of the lip products I use tend to keep their colors.
I'm really loving the formula. I think it does everything that it claims. After 5 hours, the product still looks shiny and intact just like how I first applied it. I was really surprised at how well it lasted. It does lose its luster after a meal though but that's quite normal for lip products. Another thing I really enjoy about the formula is that it's very comfortable and hydrating. I also like that the stain isn't too potent but just right. It drives me nuts when I'm stuck with the same color for the next 24 hours. It has a fruity floral scent that I find rather pleasing.
This is by far my first favorite product of 2013 :D. The formula is excellent. I highly recommend this product.
My rating: 10/10
