My Experience with L’Oreal Paris Pink Cherry Glam Shine Balmy Gloss:
This glam shine balmy gloss comes in an extremely cute, pink chubby packaging with a shiny silver cap. It is actually a crayon pencil with twist system. I like such pencils over the sharpenable pencils. The packaging looks so cute and attractive. The outer packaging actually indicates the shade of the balm. But what I feel about this packaging is that the bullet doesn’t go totally inside the pencil, so there is a chance of breakage. Otherwise this cute tube is travel friendly.
I think this range has 6 colors. I have the shade Pink Cherry 103. The shade is a very cute pink shade with a hint of neon. I didn’t notice any touch of “cherry” in this shade. It neither looks warm nor cool, so I would like to call it a neutral undertone shade. But this looks like a very sweet pink shade on my lips. This is my daily wear shade. It suits my complexion nicely and I think it goes well with all skin tones.
This shade, thankfully, doesn’t contain any noticeable shimmers like their older shades. It has very tiny amount of silver shimmers, which are generally not visible on lips. It has a beautiful, glossy finish. I just love its tint on my lips. The shade is nicely pigmented. But to build up a nice color, I need to swipe it 2-3 times. If you have medium pigmented lips, like me, even then it will just look great on your lips.
Texture & Quality:
This is not exactly a highly pigmented lip crayon or lipstick. It is more of a lip balm with decent pigmentation. Texture of this lip crayon is so smooth and soft. It glides like a dream. I have dry lips and it hydrates my lips amazingly. It can hide my dry patches and provide super soft and smooth lips. It doesn’t crease, but after 5-6 hours, the color settles a little bit into fine lines.
It is a very moisturizing lip balm with a beautiful tint. I really like its shiny texture. But the softness doesn’t stay on all long day like a good lip balm. For softness, I need to reapply this after 4-5 hours. Otherwise it has a pretty juicy and smooth texture. It makes my lips look like a doll’s. Also it doesn’t contain any strong smell.
Glam shine balmy gloss stays on my lips for a good time period. The color stays for almost 6-7 hours with a meal. I have tried their Pomegranate Punch too, but that stays for only 3-4 hours. This new shade stays really long. The tint stays for around 4-5 hours, after that it leaves beautiful pink lips. It never looks patchy. It doesn’t transfer that much.
I am obsessed with this Pink Cherry shade. I really love its improved staying power and its quality too. It makes my lips look so pretty and makes my pout look perfect and juicy.
