L’Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss- 912 Peach Pleasure

Hello dearies,

Aren’t all of us really crazy about those cute looking fashionable lip balms with the sweetest colours and flavours. My pick for today is a new launch from L’Oreal. This one belongs to the glam shine range. These lip balms sticks are very similar to those Clinique chubby sticks and Revlon kissable just bitten sticks. These were first launched in United Kingdom and then moved on to places and finally came to India. Other countries have certain different flavours like watermelon, guava, pomegranate etc and we have some different ones.

Price: Rs 400

Product benefits:

L’Oréal Paris introduces its first glossy crayon format for that looks after your lips. Balm and Gloss finally combined in an playful crayon format for mirror free application. Lips feel moisturised, look shiny with a sheer fresh looking colour pay off.

Innovation:
• Balm and gloss in one crayon format
• Enriched with flower extracts
• Not sticky.
• Ultra light feel

My experience with L’oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss- 912 Peach Pleasure:

I loved that L’Oreal came up with this new innovation of making some very girly and cute lip crayons. I think L’Oreal wanted to enter the competition of lip crayons so they came up with this. These are the new launches; I ordered these online and have no idea if they are available on L’Oreal counters or not but I am sure they must be. I had only 3 shades to select from Passionfruit perfect being on a red tone, Lychee lust being a light baby pink and Peach Pleasure being a darker shade of pink. So I picked up peach pleasure because I wanted the colour to actually show up and the second reason being I love pink like all of you.

These are cylindrical pencils with cute pink packaging and look very girly. The cap is silver in colour and the bottom is supposed to be twisted for the product to come up. The shade is little different than the colour on the packaging when actually applied. The texture is neither too soft that may cause breakage nor it is too hard as well. It is perfect. This shade is a sweet pink colour with blue undertones which makes it look a little purple too. It is an advantage for us as it gives a lot of colour plus acts as a lip balm too. The colour shown on the lips is greatly pigmented. So that is where you get colour like you expected.

Talking about the balm part, it does not feel sticky at all on the lips and this actually did the work of a lip balm. It made my lips moisturised and kept them hydrated till the time the balm is on the lips. They may treat chapped lips also. What more do you want from a product? It contains shimmer particles and that is what I don’t like about these balmy glosses. Although when applied the shimmer does not look that bad and together it gives a glossy shine to the lips making it suitable for both night and day time. It stays on the lips for like 2-3 hours although the glossy shine would disappear after an hour and re-application is needed. The more you eat or drink the faster the gloss goes away. If you are doing just blah blah blah then it will stay for a longer time. After it completely goes away still the lips are moisturised and there are only shimmer particles on the lips and it looks yuck!! I mean bad looking shimmer shining on your lips and also it spreads around the mouth area. So while removing it, be sure you apply water and then wipe it with a napkin or with your make-up remover.

Overall I wish they were without shimmer and if they come with something without shimmers then I am buying all the shades that they would have. They are a good combo of a gloss and balm which are really fun to try and cute to stock.

Pros of L’oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss- 912 Peach Pleasure:

-Nicely priced as compared to lip crayons from other brands
-Amazing combo of gloss and lip balm
-Good pigmentation
-Perfect lip balm which hydrated and moisturised the lips
-The lips are moisturised even if the colour goes away
-The balmy gloss stays for 2-3 hours
-Easy to carry
-Very cute looking and girly
-From a good brand
-Good quantity so will last for many months
-Suitable for day and night time as well

Cons of L’oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss- 912 Peach Pleasure:

-Shimmer particles present and when the colour goes off only shimmer particles are left on the lips which look yuck!!
-the glossy shine goes after an hour
-The more you eat and drink the faster the gloss goes away
-The colour nowhere matches peach like the name says

Will I repurchase/ recommend L’oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss- 912 Peach Pleasure?

I know it is bad to complain but I wish there were no shimmer particles but it is correct on their part to put shimmer as this belongs to the glam shine range and I know the entire range has glossy shimmers, so I won’t repurchase it because of shimmers and if they come out without shimmers then I would buy all. Yes you can try it as they are fun to use and gives a very cute girly look.

Nice lip swatches and nice colour . Does this colour cover pigmented lips well ?

Reply

saloni..!! August 25, 2013 at 10:52 am

Yes Preeti i think this will cover pigmented lips because the colour comes out to be pretty dark after 4-5 swipes *haan ji* *haan ji* but still for safer side try it at the counter to be sure *puchhi*
