After hearing many a blogger talk about these Maybelline ColorSensational Shine Gloss's and with Boots having their 3 for 2 offer going I thought it was only right I pick one up and give it a shot. A first Cashmere Rose was the one I intended to pick up, but after swatching it in store it felt a bit bleh, so I plumped for Glorious Grapefruit instead.
Whilst it is a definite peachy shade, leaning slightly orange in the tube and in my swatch, on my lips it definitely goes more pink which I like.
One of the reasons I picked up this product is because it has been likened to the Clarins Instant Light Lip Perfectors which I'm yet to try but stare longingly at whenever I'm near a counter. I do however have the No7 BB Lips which I hold in high regard. In comparison to that product I'd say this is definitely more of a lipgloss than a nourishing product, and I did have a case of hair stuck in lips when wearing this, which I don't usually get with my BB lips.
What I like about this product is the pigmentation it has. Whilst it is deemed to be a lipgloss, it definitely has the coverage to be a liquid lipstick, in my opinion. It gives a nice colour without feeling to heavy and thick on the lips. I also love how small the doe foot applicator is and it makes applying it really easy.
I think this is a great your lips but better look, and is something I can see myself reaching for a lot over the coming months. It is the nice finishing touch to a natural make-up look, or for toning down a smokey eye.
I do love me a nude lip afterall.
Have you tried these? What do you think?
