The nude gloss lovers rejoice, for today you shall be heard! I am so elated at the gloss I got myself from Colorbar because this is one of the few glosses that have worked for me. Most of you would know I am not a gloss person but this one, ladies, is something that works great for me as a nude gloss with just the right amount of color to it and it works even better on top my lipsticks! Yippy!
“The Star Shine Lip Gloss is a sheer gloss with glitter that gives the lips a sheen and look of liquid diamonds. It makes the lips look fuller and more enhanced. The Star Shine Lip Gloss is ideal for night and party wear and can be used alone or over a lipstick and is further accentuated with a matching lipstick or lip liner.”
I picked up every possible thing from their exclusive store so you can look forward to many more Colorbar reveiws from my side 😀 This one though is surprisingly still Rs. 325 and it is exactly like the previous star shine gloss they have ( they still have Tiramisu selling like hot cakes) just that they added this fancy silver box to it keeping in tune with all the other Carton packaging they have now.
Its a nice sturdy pack with a medium sized gloss tube ( no, not as long as their True Gloss). The applicator is regular doe-foot one and the the tube looks very cute considering the size it is and the shiny silver cap and the color visible from the tube itself. I suggest you throw the carton as it could be a big headache 😛 I am doing that after I am done with the review.
I must say I am very happy with the gloss,the etxture is thick and sticky and just the way you need for a gloss to stay longer and not bleed. This does not leave that oily residue separated very soon( it does eventually) but you can clearly feel the stickiness in the swatch when you wipe it off but on the lips it is very comfortable and light. It does not feel heavy at all.
The color is to die for. It is a nude pinky brown with fine silver shimmer to it, and for the first time I love shimmer! The color shows up true on the lips and the shimmer is very subtle, so much so that it could be called a nude gloss.For me it gives the right amount of color to the face and still feels glossy glam,the gloss is shiny but not over the top. I love the color! It makes for a great nude gloss or something to glam up your mattes.Slightly pigmented lips can make this work but I dont suggest this one for pigmented lips.
It stays fresh for 40 minutes to one hour and then it starts to merge but mind you it does not bleed. The shade looks like a mild lip balm after an hour and after two, it just shines and nothing else. I think it is sticky and hence stays fresh on me for an hour. Other glosses would stay lesser and bleed as well! (yikes!) Since this one is thick, it stays put and I would say it is better than other lighter glosses I have used,this will not survive a meal though!
I am pleased with this thick mild shimmer gloss which serves great as a nude gloss and also looks great on mattes, I recommend this to gloss and lippy lovers equally!
