Integrate Lip glosses
Hello my Beauties at IMBB. Today I will be Reviewing two of my current favorite lip glosses from Integrate. This is a brand of which I had never heard before. I got them as gifts from my husband from his official Japan visit. Since I did not accompany him and he knows about my cosmetic prem, he decided to surprise me with these. And I was indeed surprised as he had never shown any interest in my cosmetic shopping. I had never heard of the brand before so did some googling and found that Integrate is a drug store brand from Sheishido. These products do not retail in India. He got these for 1200 yen each (which is approximately 600 INR).
I was skeptical about these lip glosses but since these were a gift, I had to try them on. So how was my experience? I was bowled over by these lip glosses and am in love with them. I think I have found my HG in lip glosses. The texture of these on my lips is non-sticky (unlike Mac lip glasses which I found a little bit sticky), moisturizing, and last a good 3-4 hours without eating or drinking. They are not heavily perfumed. Also, they glide on easily and do not sit on your lips heavily. In fact the texture is more like a good moisturizing lip balm without being sticky.
Even after fading these lip glosses do not leave any layer on lips as I had experienced with some lip glosses. They fade and leave a very light shimmer on the lips.
Below are the pics of the two gorgeous lip glosses. The packaging of the lip glosses is very simple, elegant and functional (easy to carry around in your purse). As you can see these glosses have very fine shimmer. Upon application it does not look OTT. The gloss shades are peachy and light pink (as my husband likes to see on my lips). He does not like very bright colors on me. But according to him, the glosses are available in a lot more shades.
The glosses are provided with a wand, which is unlike any wand I have seen before. The applicator is smooth and the application is super convenient. Below is the pic of the wand:
The coverage provided is medium. The glosses can be worn alone or over normal lipsticks. When worn alone, they provide the most beautiful and glossy lips ever. On the top of lipsticks these look absolutely gorgeous. Below are the swatches of the lip glosses (with flash).
Pros of Integrate lip glosses:
• It is non-sticky
• It last a good 3-4 hours without eating or drinking
• It is moisturizing
• It is shimmery but not OTT
• It is good for day time wear as well as night time wear
• It is good to wear alone as well as on top of your favorite lipsticks
• The Price is reasonable considering to the quantity and quality of the product
Cons of Integrate lip glosses:
• Availability (not available in India)
• Ingredient list not available (I did not get packaged product)
• Shade name not available, only number is provided.
Apart from this, I could not find any more cons, I would suggest all the fellow IMBBians to try these out if you can lay hands on these (request your acquaintances in Japan) as it retails there.
Would I repurchase it: Definitely yes, it is my HG lipgloss (currently I am pestering my husband to ask his acquaintances in Japan to send more Integrate glosses)
