I have already reviewed the shade Burgundy and Flamingo Pink from the Forever 21 High Shine Lip Gloss range. I am back with another stunning shade from this range. Let’s jump to the review of Forever 21 High Shine Lip Gloss in Rose.
Price: $1.90 for 0.58 fl. oz.
A tube of sheer lip gloss with a high shine and an attached applicator.
My Experience with Forever 21 High Shine Lip Gloss Rose:
This lip gloss comes in a tube with an applicator. The tube is transparent with all the details printed on it. The nozzle type applicator, however, isn’t the perfect type. You can’t really control the amount of gloss you need as you squeeze the tube. Plus, it’s difficult to keep the liquid confined to the edges of your lips. Probably it would be better to have a tube with a doe foot applicator for precise application. It has a screw on cap, and the gloss is handy enough to even fit your pockets. Completely travel-safe.
The variant Rose is a beautiful mauve pink shade. It is a very wearable color which nicely suit Indian skin tones. For a lip gloss, its pigmentation is incredible. It can be completely opaque if you apply it right. I take out a bit of gloss on the centre of my lips and spread it with my index finger. That works for me as it gives a beautiful shiny color which can be easily worn during daytime. This shade is one of the prettiest ones in my stash as it looks so feminine and cute even on my tanned complexion.
The gloss doesn’t have shimmers, which makes it easier to wear. You can get luscious, just-kissed lips by applying a thin even layer. The texture is thick yet runny. It’s a slightly heavy liquid which can seep through the corners of your lips, so be careful during application. That’s why applying it with fingers works best. Plus, when you apply it with fingers, you can sheer out the color and it looks very wearable. This color, when sheered out, can set to a semi-matte finish, which doesn’t feel heavy or greasy at all. I would call it a lip cream more than a gloss!
I won’t say it’s completely transfer-proof or smudge-proof, but for a lip-gloss so affordable it has damn good performance. It can survive meals without getting wiped off completely and has a pretty tint even after you stuff a lot of food during lunch. It is slightly sticky, but doesn’t stick your lips if you press them. Also, if you apply by spreading it out with your fingers, it feels so comfortable and lightweight on the lips. The gloss is hydrating and doesn’t require prepping up. It’s easy to remove it completely with a makeup remover. This gloss, when spread out lightly, gives the most natural just-bitten lips.
Also, I found that it works great as a cheek tint too. This color would look so gorgeous on fair-medium skin. I rub my index finger on the apple of my cheeks and it gives such a rosy flush with a subtle glow. Absolutely love it! All the colors from this range are great performers and I love using them for both daily wear and parties. This color is definitely a top choice from this entire range.
