[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] If you like a juicy lip without a full on intensely saturated colour, these are for you. They’re more of a gloss balm than anything – very comfortable and buttery in the wear with hyaluronic acid and also rose quartz which I can’t find a reason for or any particular lipstick benefits.
To be honest, they’re on a par with much more expensive brands in terms of quality and effect – there isn’t quite the same shade as my beloved Gucci Rene Pink (which is red) but if there was I’d be sorely tempted to make the swap because these are £8.99 compared to £32. I will try Beaming Strawberry just in case.
You can see in the swatch that the intensity is low but there is enough colour that it gives an impact – it’s not the same as a tinted balm – there’s more colour than that but the translucency makes it such an easy wear. There’s a lot of light reflection from the high-shine polymers – it really is a ‘juicy’ lip and I felt my lips looked smoother than usual. In the swatch above the shades are Glossed Up Rose, Toasting Glasses and Dewy Peach. I should say that the colour indicators on the packaging on the bullet aren’t that good – swatches are better if you can find the rest anywhere. They’re HERE on a buy one get one half price offer.

Darn you Jane! Gucci Rene Pink ‘slipped’ into the shopping cart… how could I resist?
That’s what happens to me …. :-)))))
I’m really hoping for your sake that the Beaming Strawberry works out! Cherries in the Snow almost looks closer, but I can never tell how much the light while the pictures were taken/my perception/my monitor alters things, you know? I believe I have one of these somewhere but like all of my lipsticks has languished in case I need to mask up to leave the house!
I will take another look – there wasn’t an immediate obvious choice but if I can find a dupe I’ll be quite happy … although I expect I’ll be tempted back to Gucci because it’s the lipstick of my life!
When the Rene Pink arrives (it’s on its way) I will do a little dance singing ‘BBB made me do it and that’s grand”. It looks lush…secretly chuffed you directed attention to it otherwise I would never have thought to you ‘influencer’ minx! ; )
I’m sorry – it was just a passing mention :-)))))))) But welcome to an addiction forever :-))
