Hello to all the Ravishing Ladies! 🙂
I have always been an awfully huge fan of Make Up Forever. It is one brand that I believe makes brilliant makeup, but there are not many branches of MUFE in India 🙁 You see God cannot be good to you all the time! :pray:
So, on my last visit to Kuwait, I picked up a lot of products from the Make Up Forever store, one of which I already reviewed, Make Up Forever Smoky Lash Mascara.
This time there is this extravagant lip gloss called “Make Up Forever Lab Shine – Shade M12” from the Metallic Collection that I would love to review.
Price and Quantity:
1100 INR for 2.6 gm.
Lab shine lip gloss offers a spectacular and intense shine effect. Especially designed to achieve an ultra-bright effect, its silky brush ensures an optimal and dazzling coverage.
Available in 35 shades across three unique collections: Diamond, Star, and Metal. The Diamond Collection includes 12 shades that give natural looking color with sparkling, sheer coverage. The Star Collection has 14 shades with a pearly shine for medium coverage. The Metal Collection consists of nine highly pigmented shades that offer full coverage with an intense, chrome finish. That is a huge collection isn’t it?
Like you see how classy and admirable the lip gloss looks. It is one of those makeup items that I would always love to flaunt when I’m with my girlies because it looks very lovely and definitely everybody would “eye” on it. There is a very smooth brush to apply the gloss, not the brush that we find usually in all the other lip glosses, and that, I love 🙂
My Take on Make Up Forever Lab Shine Metal Collection Lip Gloss:
It is a very smooth lip gloss, spreads easily and evenly on the lips because of the brush. Like it is called the “Metallic Collection,” it indeed gives that metallic look on the lips. It has extra shine and glossy effect that would probably suit and look best for evening parties.
This is not the kind that could be worn on a casual day as it might look too heavy and intense and just not right. It is more of the party kind.
I suggest to you all to pick darker shades in this collection because they are absolutely captivating. The shades might seem familiar, but once you wear them, it is entirely different.
It cannot be compared with other lip glosses at all. It is one of its own kind, “The Metallic Collection.” Darker shades will of course cover pigmented lips in the metal collection, but I don’t think the lighter shades would offer appreciable coverage. The gloss concentrates more on giving the metallic shine to the lips more than anything, and in that aspect, it is totally successful.
It can stay up to a maximum of 4 hours, but it being too glossy could be a problem as it can easily stick on to glasses and other stuff reducing the staying power of the gloss. It is not sticky or uncomfortable. It makes your lips look absolutely luscious. It has a great subtle and almost fruity smell to it, but it’s not overpowering at all. This color is very versatile and I love that it has a lip brush, rather than a doe-foot applicator.
This gorgeous shade that I picked brightens up my face, it gives me all the life I need on those boring days. It keeps my lips moisturised and is very easy and free to remove. A lip gloss that offers a lot of comfort and makes the total “YOU” very attractive, easy to carry and apply.
Pros of Make Up Forever Lab Shine Metal Collection Lip Gloss:
- The classy packaging. I love love love it! 😀
- The glossy and metallic effect that it gives is something that many women would drool over!
- Easy to apply and remove.
- Efficiently moisturises lips.
- Stays for a reasonable 4 hours for the kind of glossy and creamy texture it has, which I really appreciate.
- Brightens your face, be it any shade. I suppose that is the magic of the whole metallic collection.
- Easy to carry and very flaunt-able because it is “so” good looking. 😛
- It is available in so many shades ladies, you can choose your like from the Metal, Diamond and the Star collection. I was baffled seeing so many beautiful shades in the store. I felt like hitting the store at the night to steal off a few 😛 )
Cons of Make Up Forever Lab Shine Metal Collection Lip Gloss:
- Every time I talk about Make Up Forever, the price of their products give me a heart ache! Why the price darlings?
- Only the darker shades offer coverage and the lighter shades don’t well do it.
- It being too glossy might result in all the glasses and spoons having marks of your pricey gloss, hence reducing the staying power.
The Metal Collection does not have a lot of glitter like the Diamond Collection, but it is easy and looks very versatile. So, if you like to splurge a little bit on your lip gloss, then this is yours! 🙂 This will top your “Lip Gloss Love” list! I can bet on that! 😀
Would I Buy Make Up Forever Lab Shine Metal Collection Lip Gloss Again?
Other than the exorbitant price, I don’t have a problem with it. I’m just waiting to go to Mumbai or Kuwait again to pick other more-than-gorgeous shades!
