My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Passion Fruit Perfect:

I think I have gone crazy after these cute pencil-like lip stains. I can’t resist myself from buying these. Whenever any brand launches these sticks, I just have to try one or two. I could not control myself at all when I saw these at a L’Oreal counter and that too at a price of Rs. 400. I got too excited and got myself two of these L’Oreal Glam Shine Balmy glosses.

L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss 3

I fell in love with the color Passion Fruit Perfect as soon as I swatched it at the counter. Passion Fruit Perfect is a very pretty orange color. It doesn’t have any tones of red in it. I didn’t see any shimmer in it when I swatched it at the counter, that’s why I wanted to buy it immediately, but when I applied it at home, I could see golden and orange shimmer in it. In bright light, the shimmer is very evident on lips and it makes me a bit uncomfortable. The shimmer stays on lips even after the gloss has faded.  This color won’t suit dusky complexions. This color would look good on casual day outs provided you are okay with the shimmer. The orange isn’t very bright and bold, so it’s quite easy to apply.

L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss 4

L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss glides on very smoothly on the lips. In fact, of all the lip tints I have, this is the softest and smoothest to apply. It isn’t much pigmented, so it needs to be swiped for 2-3 times to cover the pigmentation of my lips. This color provides just a bright, fresh coral tint in one swipe, so it’s good for those who avoid very bright and bold oranges. It is very moisturizing and doesn’t require any lip balm beneath it. In fact, it has a balmy touch to it. It feels balmy and waxy on lips. It gives a wet look to lips. It stays on my lips for about 2 hours and then fades off leaving behind the shimmer. It won’t survive any meal or even light snacks.

L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss 5

These glam shine balmy glosses have the same color of their packaging as the color of the stick inside along with a shiny, silver cap. This makes it easier to identify, in case you have more than one color from this range, unlike the Lakme lip tints which have black packaging. Since these are very soft, these get used up early as compared to the other lip tints I have.

Pros of L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Passion Fruit Perfect:

  • A pretty orange color.
  • Will look good when just a tint of orange is required on lips.
  • Gives a wet look to lips.
  • Moisturizing.
  • Glides on very softly and smoothly on the lips.

Cons of L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Passion Fruit Perfect:

  • It has shimmer in it.
  • Staying power isn’t much.
  • Less pigmentation.
  • Shimmer stays behind after the lip tint has faded.

IMBB Rating:


Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Passion Fruit Perfect?

I won’t repurchase it because of the shimmer. Though it is a very pretty orange, it won’t become my favorite because of the shimmer.

I think bourjois ones are nicer… so much more pigmented. Isn’t it? I liked the color but yeah you are right about the pigmentation. I am loving the whole concept though. Lovely lip swatch surbhi 🙂


Surbhi September 9, 2013 at 5:27 pm
