Let me simply say that I actually recognize how Lancôme determined to maintain their hydration claims on the cheap facet with ‘simply’ eight hours of moisture. After foundations claiming to final anyplace from 16 to 20 one thing hours, I like that they don’t seem to be becoming a member of the sport of probably the most ridiculous declare round. The Shine Lover lipsticks are available a fairly silver outer field with the shade NAME of the lipstick, nevertheless, the underside label on the lipstick tube solely lists the shade NUMBER. I assume it is not a giant deal for most individuals, however I would choose to have the shade title of the sticker as properly.
Talking of the lipstick tube, I used to be pleasantly shocked once I opened the field. From taking a look at pictures and promo photos on-line, I anticipated the white tube to made out of a flimsy light-weight plastic, however it’s truly so much heavier and sturdier in my hand, and the white has a fairly opalescent end. I additionally just like the minimal design with silver stripes and Lancôme’s rose on high of the cap.
Easy Pink no. 323 is a sheer cool-toned sizzling pink shade in a calmly shiny end, no shimmer. Within the tube, it seems to be scary vibrant, however applies very, very sheer on the lips with one swipe; the depth could be simply constructed up although. In that, it jogs my memory many of the discontinued Giorgio Armani Rouge d’Armani Sheers, however perhaps a hair extra pigmented and fewer shiny. Amongst my assortment of different vibrant pinks, it is probably the most much like Contemporary Sugar Tinted Lip Remedy in Tulip, however much more vibrant. The Shu Uemura Rouge Limitless Supreme Shine PK331 is hotter and accommodates micro shimmer particles.
Whereas the shade itself is nothing terribly distinctive, I do discover the Shine Lover system to be fairly not like different sheer lipsticks/ tinted balms in my assortment. It is extremely easy and light-weight on the lips; a lot in order that I truly forgot I used to be carrying it, and began devouring a watermelon slice with out eradicating it first, which might have ended fairly Joker-like with some other lipstick – however because the Shine Lover system is so skinny, it did not actually migrate from my lips in any respect. It does appear to remain put fairly properly, and when the refined shine wears off, Easy Pink leaves behind a little bit of a stain; I nonetheless had on a fairly pink flush after dinner.

One factor that could be a little bit of a let down for some is that the Shine Lover end is in reality not very shiny in any respect. It has comparable shine/ gloss degree to an ordinary creamy lipstick; to provide you some examples for reference, the Shu Uemura Rouge Limitless Shine and the Contemporary Sugar tinted balms are each extra shiny on the lips. I personally do not thoughts – from searching on-line swatches, I anticipated a decrease degree of shine – and I feel that is additionally the rationale why the Shine Lover stays higher on the lips than different sheer formulation.
The scent on these is a really delicate fruity floral; I can solely scent it somewhat within the tube and the perfume would not linger in any respect. As for the ‘8H Moisture’ declare, I am unable to put on any lipstick for that with out touching up, however I’ll say it is actually not drying, which is already an enormous accomplishment on my flaky lips. When utilized, it additionally would not catch on dry patches, and whereas it would not plump up all of the tremendous traces, it would not collect in them both, making the general look of my lips extra easy and wholesome.
I am actually completely happy I made a decision to check out this new lipstick from Lancôme; to date, I am fairly impressed with it, and it is one in every of my new favourite lip product formulation. Despite the fact that the shade is so cheerily vibrant within the tube, it seems to be very naturally fairly on the lips; actually, an ‘Easy Pink’ coloration.
