Hey :) This post marks the start of me taking part in #blogyoursocksoffseptember, an idea that Jess from Lovely Jubbly came up with where you blog every day throughout September…this is just the kinda thing I need to make myself get a bit more organised and schedule more posts!
So today it’s all about my latest addition to my everyday lip gloss collection: L’Oreal Glam Shine Reflexions gloss. I actually only picked it up because I had a voucher for £2 off one at Boots, so I thought I would give it a go. As you can see from the photos, it has an angled applicator which I actually really like and it fits with the natural curve of your lips and means the gloss goes on in one sweep.
The other major thing I noticed was that it does not have the dreaded sticky finish! This is a big relief, because one of the most annoying things EVER is when you’re walking about and your hair is getting stuck to your lips over and over again. It’s so bad that if there’s a wind outside then you’re almost definitely going to end up looking like you’re wearing a fake beard. But anyway, this isn’t the case here and the finish is a smooth and soft gloss which I could compare with the finish of a balm. I have very dry lips naturally and this doesn’t dry them out at all, which is a deal breaker for me!
The colour is a soft, subtle pink with a gentle shimmer. It’s perfect for daytime wear and work etc if you just want a natural look that is just the right side of glossy and sparkly. It is ideal if you want less colour than lip butters etc, but the shimmer makes it stand out without being too over the top for day time.
