[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.
