L’oréal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Lychee Lust

Hello girls,

Today I am going to talk about the new product from L’oreal – a gloss in the form of balm. The product is from the glam shine range. This range is famous for the regular types of glosses with a heart shaped wand. This product is the first of the kind because it incorporates the gloss in the form of lip balm. Though the packaging is similar to chubby sticks, Revlon just bitten kissable balm or lakme pop tints the difference is they contain minute sparkles just like the regular glosses from the same range. It is a gloss in the form of lip crayon rather than the tinted lip crayons.

L’oréal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Lychee Lust

The shade which I bought is lychee lust 911 which is a shade of pink. Only three shades are available in India.

Size : 2.5 g

MRP: Rs. 400/-

Product claims:

• L’Oreal Glam Shine Lip Crayon Lychee Lust 911 has nourishing flower waxes that nourishes the lips
• Contains luminescent polymers that gives a dewy shine
• Easy to apply and glides easily on the lips to give colour

Packaging:

The product comes in a twist-up lip pencil casing, chubby and with silver cap. It closes with a tight press but no clicking. That makes it a little vulnerable to carry in bag. Brandings are in silver letter around the pencil. Ingredient list is given in the wrap around the product.

My Experince with L’oréal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Lychee Lust :

The colour is a mild baby pink with very minute shimmer particles. It glides well and applies evenly. It can be applied on bare lip or can be used as gloss over lipsticks from shade of same family. It doesn’t bleed out or settles in fine lines the only issue is the mild grainy feeling of the shimmer particles. The creaminess goes off within some two hours but the shimmer stays on as a tint. But the colour is not pigmented almost transparent. It may not show up much on pigmented lips.

Cons of L’oréal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Lychee Lust 911:

• Mild grainy feeling of the shimmer
• Subtle wax smell due to the presence of floral waxes
• Availability

What to pair with:

As I said it is a versatile product so you can use it with anything. The days when you go for bold eyes you can use these mild glosses as this shade is not pigmented. It is almost transparent. It comes handy as a touch up product as it is not gooey like normal glosses.

Recommendation: There are 3 shades available in India and in overseas as usual more shades. But I am not sure about the availability of the other shades. Getting them online is tricky if possible swatch it in person and buy. Based on the cost comparison if you want to own a lip crayon then you can hands down go for this one.I would definitely repurchase the other shades from this range.

IMBB Rating: for innovation and versatility – 4/5.

Great price point. Lakme take note please. I am not so sure about the glitter though … hmmmm
@Kavya: Lovely reviewand lip swatches.
@Neha: WHAT? No lip crayons for the lip queen? Do try the Revlon balm stains and the Clinique Chubby stick intense :)
