Gloss has by no means been my factor – it’s typically sticky, uncomfortable and too high-maintenance for me. Nevertheless, I do love matte lip merchandise and, each time I handed by an Essence show, I used to be completely fascinated by the idea of those glosses. So, someday I made a decision that I simply ought to present it a attempt as a result of, truthfully, at a worth of about 2. 50 EURO, I actually wasn’t breaking the financial institution. I received the shade Velvet Rose as a result of it was the one which appealed to me essentially the most.
It’s a pale pink with no discernible undertones and, within the tube, it seems to be beautiful, though upon software you’ll be able to clearly see that it’s a lot lighter. I’m certain it could look nice with a smokey eye, however I don’t personally are likely to put on these, so it
simply washes me out. The packaging is nothing particular, however it works simply tremendous – an ordinary lipgloss tube with a black high. The applicator is a doe-foot one, however it’s too stiff and too straight in my view.
A extra versatile and triangular one would’ve allowed a extra exact software. Software-wise, I’ve two separate experiences with this product. The primary time I used it, proper after shopping for it, I put it on and thought it regarded horrible – too thick and cakey, too slippery and never matte sufficient. After that terrible first expertise, I stashed it away in my lip product drawer and by no means checked out it once more.
Six months later (I don’t know what came visiting me) however I made a decision to all of the sudden pull out this lipgloss and provides it one other likelihood. The
texture was as clean as I bear in mind it to be, and likewise equally as slippery. Nevertheless, it shocked me that I didn’t discover it as cakey because the final time I attempted it, and I believe which may be attributable to me glopping it on the primary time. However, the oiliness was nonetheless an excessive amount of for me, so I made a decision to attempt blotting it with a serviette, and bam! It was just like the product simply reworked earlier than my eyes.
The end that in the first place was barely sheeny was now fully matte and the oiliness was fully gone. Better of all was the way in which the product felt on my lips – it felt like nothing. Now belief me, I’ve tried a number of lip merchandise that folks declare are “light-weight” and “you’ll be able to’t even really feel them”, and …
let me inform you I can really feel these. However this product? It actually appears like nothing is in your lips and, whenever you rub them collectively, they only really feel clean and moisturized, however not in a I’ve-put-on-a-lipbalm form of method, extra of a I’ve-got-naturally-soft-lips form of method.
The one drawback I can discover with this system is that sure, whenever you blot the oil off, you’re additionally taking off a part of the colour. Nevertheless, most of it stays, so I’d simply suggest to do two to a few layers and blot every of them off. And, in the event you’re apprehensive about it having the lasting energy of a gloss, don’t. It would final all day in the event you don’t eat or drink, and it lasts completely by way of consuming.
However don’t count on it to final by way of consuming, it’s
not a liquid lipstick in any case and oil will take away it. Additionally, you could want a mirror to reapply the darker shades after consuming, because the pigmentation is unquestionably up there with one in every of a liquid lipstick. One thing I ought to point out is the scent. It’s an odd mixture of vanilla and one thing spicy, and I have to admit that, at first, I discovered it fully gag-worthy.
Nevertheless, after some time, I turned used to the scent and now I even discover it nice. That is one thing to think about in the event you are usually delicate to smells although. Total, this has changed all my drying liquid lipsticks that get patchy after a couple of hours, and I’m positively going to get extra shades as quickly as doable. I can 100% suggest that you simply rush out and choose this up in your favourite colour, you gained’t remorse it.
