This lip gloss arrived in my “The Next Big Thing” bumper Soap & Glory box set. If you know me you will know that I don’t do lip gloss, I haven’t worn it for yonks! I’m a matte red retro MAC Ruby Woo kinda gal. So I hesitantly tried this lip gloss and was quite surprised….
Ultra-moisturising and repairing COLOURBURST™ CRYSTALS with MICRONISED FRESHWATER PEARL POWDER, aragonite crystals, protein complex amino acids and moisturising polysaccharides
ENCAPSULATED HYALURONIC ACID & CHONDROITIN SULFATE
in a 3-dimensional network that firms, sculpts and stimulates collagen synthesis.
I decided to give it a decent trial and tried it out for a week and actually really love it! The colour is quite dense which means even when the high shine has dulled down your lips after a few hours of wear you still have an even coat of colour. The “gloopy” texture I’ve gotten used to and doesn’t bother me, it feels quite moisturising.
I don’t find it to be very plumping which doesn’t bother me, though because of its clever ingredients (listed above) it does give the illusion of fullness and your lips look smooth and moisturised.
The colour “charm offensive” is a pretty rose hue which is quite flattering for most skin tones. It’s a nice alternative to my matte red lip days and quite girly. I’m glad I didn’t throw it aside after one application, I’m definitely a lip gloss convert now, I’m reaching into my make-up bag right as I type to slap on a coat before I set off to work.
