So the product today is Loreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss in the shade “Pink Cherry 103”.
Loreal has launched these cute lip crayons in Glossy mirror finish some time back.
Lipstick Category : Gloss
What Loreal Claims:
This gorgeous lip crayon doubles up as a high-shine lip gloss and a balm that keeps your lips soft and hydrated. It is your one-stop-solution to achieve that perfect plump and glossy pout.
The shade I am reviewing today is PINK CHERRY.
As the name says its a bubbly neon pink with no shimmers in it.This shade looks very pretty on fair skin tones.But wont go great on wheatish to dark skin tone.This shade reminds me of childhood memories of Big Babol chewing gums 🙂 that pretty pink .
This shade wont suit all skin tones .
450 INR for 2.5gms (Bit pricey for the quality and quantity).
The packaging is really cute .It comes in cylindrical retractable tube with strong cap which makes it easy to apply and travel friendly.One can easily make out the shade of the gloss as the tube color indicates the shade of the gloss inside.
Pigmentation and Texture:
The pigmentation of these crayons is not great .They are more like tinted balms.You would need 2-3 swipes for a good color layer.This shade is not for pigmented lips since you would need good layers of the gloss to cover These lip crayons glide on lips without any tagging pulling or any efforts.Very soft and smooth texture .You feel like you are applying balm on lips.
They are not transfer proof .This shade does not settles in fine lines of lips.It does bleeds and hence you need to reapply after meals or drinks.
Lips do not feel heavy at all, you wont feel that there is something applied on lips.They are moisturizing but I would recommend to exfoliate your lips and apply lip balm before applying this lipstick since it might feel bit drying after few hours.This shade has very light vanilla fragrance hence its very comfortable to use as I have sensitive nose.
Staying power :
The staying power of these lip glosses is not much since they are highly transferable. It sustains only 2 hours without meals and drinks break.It starts fading evenly from the lips and leaves a beautiful pink tint on lips.It can be easily removed using cleansing milk/make-up remover or my personal favorite Coconut oil.
These are 3 swipes on lips.
They are easily available on many online stores like amazon, nykaa and purplle.com.
If you are looking for tinted moisturizing balm you can go for this,however I would not suggest as the pigmentation does not justify the price its available for.Also the neon pink look makes face dull.However I would recommend Maybelline tinted balms in place of these since they are much better in both quantity and quality.One can actually buy good lipsticks also in 450 INR range.
So for me it was a big NO NO.
I would not recommend to go for this shade and definitely would not repurchase it again!!
