Hi girls, hope you are all having a fabulous weekend! Today I have a quick post on a lip product which I have been in love with recently and that is the Glam Shine Reflexion Lip Gloss from L'Oreal. I don't know why but over the past few months I've seam to have neglected a lot of my lip glosses and just gone for a vibrant lipstick on my lips instead, no gloss needed. But this Glam Shine Lip Gloss has made me fallen in love with lip gloss all over again and I've found myself constantly applying it, and popping it over all my favourite lippies. I was a bad blogger and never took pictures of this lip gloss before I started using it and you will see from the photos that its been given a lot of love.
I know L'Oreal have had this range of lip glosses out for some time with its unique heart shape applicator wand, but I'm pretty sure the Glam Shine Lip Glosses in the reflexion range are the new ones they have recently brought out and you may have seen them worn by the lovely Cheryl Cole in the L'Oreal adverts on TV.
The first thing that drew me to this lip gloss was the gorgeous colour, the one that's being showcased in this post is the shade 172 in Sheer Watermelon. It's a mix of coral, peach and pink colours and is filled with lots of iridescent pink glitter which adds that Glam Shine. When applied the gloss is just like the name says and and appears very sheer on the lips, so this is perfect if your not a huge fan of colour on your lips. Although it does apply fairly sheer, there is some colour transfer which I think just enhances the natural colour of your own lips.
One thing I love about this gloss is its beautiful shine and sparkle and it really makes your lips seam a lot more plump and it will really brighten up any everyday makeup look. With an ultra shiny lip gloss, you would think that it would lead to a horrible sticky mess on your lips, but there is no sticky feeling at all with this gloss. Once applied, it softens and adds moisture to the lips and you don't have to worry about any of your hairs getting stuck to your lips (girls with long hair, you will know exactly what I mean by this).
The heart shape wand makes application of this lip gloss so easy and you can easily coat your lips on one clean, easy sweep, so clean that you could do this on the go without the use of a mirror. As for lasting time, the Glam Shine Lip Gloss wont stay on your lips for hours on end, but it will add shine and sparkle long enough to create impact, and like I say it's so easy just to top it up and apply some more!
You can buy this from most places that sell L'Oreal cosmetics, I got mine from Boots which retailed for £7.69 and now is the perfect time to buy as you get a free L'Oreal gift when you spend £15 or more on any L'Oreal products... Bonus!
The top two pictures are the L'oreal Glam Shine Reflexion in Sheer Watermelon on its own and the bottom two show the Glam Shine over my favourite Mac lipstick in Impassioned.
I would reccomend this gloss to anyone and I am really keen to try out more shades, if any of you beauties have tired this I would love to know what shade is your favourite.
