I was watching Tanya/Pixi2woo's Victoria Beckham tutorial (I can't get enough of her videos!) on youtube the other day and saw her use this lipgloss, it looked gorgeous on her so I picked one up.
It's the L'Oreal Glam Shine Liquid lip colour in Sand Crystal 06. I think it's a great name for the gloss, it is a sandy colour which has lots of crystal shimmer - it just makes sense! I'm usually not so keen of really shimmery glosses but I don't mind this one, maybe because the gloss is quite a neutral colour? I'm not sure why but i really like it.
You can sort of get an idea of the shimmer in it in the above piccies.
I don't really own any other glosses like this one. I own quite a few pink and coral toned ones but nothing quite so gold or beige. As soon as I put it on I loved it. I would probably wear it in the evening as opposed to the day as I usually just wear lipbalm during the day and think it might be a bit OTT for uni! It's the sort of colour that now I own I think I will be reaching for all the time as it goes with most looks.
I love the applicator. I recently got Mac dazzleglass in smile so I been wearing it all week and have become used to the small brush applicator they have. This is so much easier I can just whack on even coat really quickly & easily. It has a great consistency too. After wearing smile all week this feels so much smoother and not as sticky, I'm impressed!
Here is a swatch on my lips. It definitely doesn't look anywhere near as gold on my lips but the swatch doesn't really capture the beige tone it does have (silly camera). As you can see when it's on it is quite sheer.
The only downside I have found is that it doesn't last that long and when it wears off you're left with sparkles on your lips. You know what I mean!? I hate that, I think that looks weird but anyway I can handle it as long I remember to reapply. I guess that is one of the downfalls of a gloss which isn't heaps sticky.
Have you tried any L'Oreal glamshine lipglosses?
