My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Pomegranate Punch:

I got two L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy glosses as soon as these were launched in India. I have already reviewed Passionfruit Perfect, which was a very pretty orange color. Now, comes the turn of Pomegranate Punch. Pomegranate Punch is a deep maroon color with maroon and silver shimmer in it. This color is absolute beauty, especially considering it would suit all skin tones. The shimmer is hardly visible, unlike the Passionfruit Perfect.

So, it can be worn any time of the day and at any occasion without worrying about the shimmer. This color can be easily worn to office. My mom is a fan of maroons and she decided to keep this color as soon as I showed this to her. She wore it yesterday and it looked really pretty. I like that it is such a versatile color.

These Glam Shine Balmy Glosses glide on very smoothly and softly on lips. In fact, I have worn it on “dry lips days” and I didn’t feel the need to apply a lip balm beneath it. So, it’s going to be an absolute treasure in winters. The pigmentation is greater than the other shade I have. It requires one or two swipes to cover the pigmentation of my lips completely. It stays on my lips for about 2 hours and fades off leaving behind the shimmer. It won’t survive any meal or even light snacks. This has semi-glossy finish.

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.

Cons of L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Pomegranate Punch:

  • Not completely matte.
  • Staying power isn’t much.
  • Shimmer stays behind after the lip tint has faded.

IMBB Rating:


Will I Repurchase/Do I Recommend L’Oreal Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Pomegranate Punch?
