Skin Tone: Medium fair, warm undertones
In this post, I am reviewing the shade “Pucker Up” from LA Colors Super Shine Lip Gloss range.
Pout lip glosses are a gloss lover’s dream. The Super Shine formula is flecked with shimmer that glides on leaving lips moisturized with shiny color.
Price and Quantity:
325 INR for 3.5g
My Experience with L.A. Colors Pout Super Shine Lip Gloss Pucker Up:
The lip gloss comes packed in a small, cylindrical plastic tube. The tube is transparent and it has an off white cap bearing the brand’s tagline on it. The see-through tube helps to easily spot the shade. Also, there is a small label on the cap, which indicates the shade name and ingredients list. There is a small doe-foot applicator attached with the cap. This applicator is soft and easy to work with but it picks up only a small amount of the lip gloss, so I have to dip it again and again to apply it properly. Other than this, the packaging is leak proof and does not occupy much space. So, overall the packaging is basic and travel friendly.
The shade I am going to review is called “Pucker Up.” It is a transparent lip gloss with light golden sheen. The shimmers in the lip gloss are tiny and do not look gaudy. This is a clear lip gloss, which is great for adding on top of the favorite lipstick. It does not impart any color to the lips. It is not ideally suitable for using alone by people with pigmented lips. The brand claims it to be a high shine lip gloss but actually it has a very soft sheen. The shimmers are not really noticeable. They just contribute in giving a healthy sheen and a nice wet look to the lips.
The texture of the lip gloss is smooth and creamy. It glides smoothly on the lips without any tugging or pulling. The formula is thick and I would not say that is lightweight but it is not really heavy either. It feels comfortable on the lips. I can feel the presence of this gloss on my lips but it does not feel annoying. It is not sticky like most of the drugstore glosses. It looks too shiny initially and later on, the shine settles a bit and gives healthy sheen to the lips. The lip gloss is not drying.
The lip gloss has a mild vanilla fragrance, which is slightly strong and does stay for quite long so this can be bothersome for people with sensitive noses. The longevity of this lip gloss is something, which has really disappointed me. It stays for around 2 hours on my lips.
It does not survive even light meals and fades away completely. It loses its glossy sheen in the mean time and also the color fades away gradually, so frequent reapplications are required. This happens to most of the sheer finish lip glosses so this is why I don’t mind reapplying, but it can be annoying at times as it wipes off completely and does not leave any kind of tint behind.
