That I'm someone who can't multitask to save her life is no secret. But the fact that I love products that multitask or people who do totally intrigue me might be one. But these 2 in 1 things sort of disappointed me usually. Shampoo + Conditioner (Lol, wha?!), Oil + Shampoo! (I mean, either one is cutting the point of other. How are you getting the dual benefit?! Yah! Ididn'tthinkso). Cronuts (OMG Cronuts!! Never had one. Totally want one. Just one. 2 of my favourite things they are, no denying that. That's why they are to be eaten separately for double the awesomeness!! Besides, is it just me who thinks it kinds looks gross?) So when I heard of this "ultimate lip potion" (and forever being on the hunt of a super pigmented lipgloss), I decided to give it a whirl!
I got a pretty coral shade called Glam2. It's so pretty, I think it's unfair to not give it a totally glamorous name!
This is shiny. Like VERY SHINY. not your regular lipgloss. supremely shiny.
Texture and Longevity- I think it's best described as the lip polish. Because when it first comes out of the tube, it slicks on top of my lips, giving them a fresh, polished look. I mean really! You know how you run into someone. anyone. from the past or present when you're looking your frumpiest, all you need to do it run to the bathroom and put this on, and believe me, it instantly perks your face up. But then again, it has a lot to do with this colour too.
This fairytale doesn't last too long though. because in sometime, it tends to get thick and gloopy on the lips and do not apply too much because it really gets sticky then. It's definitely one of those lip products you must wipe off before eating/ drinking anything. Especially with the shimmer, you don't want to take your chances. So wear it for a shopping spree but not for that lunch date!
The stickiness does make it last for about 3 hours easily though. The glitter does get accumulated in my dry lip lines
The brush almost copies the L'Oreal lipgloss design and gets just the right amount of colour out. But I still much prefer the good old L'Oreal ones which totally enveloped my lips in one go!
Moment of truth- These aren't as pigmented as lipsticks. (Not even like the MAC Lustre ones) but I think that's what makes this an easy colour to wear. For those of you trying to make a transition from lipglosses to lipsticks, you might like these. These show a little bit of your lip through and the colour adapts to suit you.
I like that these are supremely glossy and This tube stays permanently in my bag and that's a big promotion to something that's been in my life for about 2 weeks!
In other news, OMG! It's just one month left for my wedding!
I'm yet to book a mehendi artist and a hairstylist. Suggestions??
My saree blouses aren't stitched.
I am yet to get my shoes.
I think I should just do a nicer post on what's done!
