Hope you all are enjoying your day! Today, I am here to share my new love for lip glosses which was also proudly gifted to my sisters and relatives as token of respect & love. I started liking it when I received these cuties in X-mas gift basket from hubby’s videsi colleagues who were overwhelmed by our warm welcome at shudh desi dinner last year. I also liked the way they appreciated my looks, Indian attire, our food and complimented me with decent kiss on my hands before leaving our place (though, my hubby never asked them to come home after that day! lol ;)). I took it as a golden opportunity to make him (hubby) more jealous and make him realize that Indian biwi can rock a six yards saree & get million admirations all over world! 😛
Anyway, let me introduce the glosses before I make it controversial & offensive for Indian hubbies and in-laws (who could come across this article accidentally or willingly! :P) I am quite impressed with the glosses duo and my sisters love this most for their decent pigmentation and more glossy finish. Though, I personally love deep color pay off even in glosses, I would definitely love to get these cuties again. Let’s read on further to know more about LULU lip gloss duo.
Celebrate the season with a two-piece lip gloss set by Lulu that gives your pout the perfect pop of shine while scenting it in vanilla.
0.22 oz. each.
By Lulu; imported.
$4.98 for a set of two 0.44 Fl Oz (13 ml) lip glosses. Price may vary from store to store.
My Experience with Lulu Hello Holiday Lip Gloss Duo:
I totally miss shade description on the packaging as their packaging looks similar to any branded lip gloss with transparent plastic tube and doe foot applicator safely enclosed with golden cap. I love small handy mirror on the side of the tube. The gloss smells heavenly sweet with vanilla essence which tempts us to wear it again & again.
The glosses seem bubble gum pink and copper mixed bronze brown shade to me inside the packaging with presence of silver shimmers. However, both look nearly transparent with hint of sparkles on lips in first swipe; though, we can get buildable color pay off with 2-3 swipes. I am also impressed with the texture and finish of the gloss which seems feather light on my lips with no sticky feel at all even after several swipes.
It never settles in fine lines nor does it settle in the corners of my lips upon multiple swipes. I find it more hydrating and glossy than any other drug store brand lip gloss. I mean, it slides effortlessly even on dry and parched lips without accentuating flaky skin. Isn’t it amazing?
However, I wish I could get better pigmentation considering their light, non-sticky texture which is ideal for a gloss. I find their staying power quite decent with 3-4 hours of visible sheer pigmented sheen on the lips, though shimmers and glossy finish stay put for longer hours.
My lips feel soft and hydrated even after removing it. I have never felt any irritation or itching while wearing them on my lips. In fact, I also find them quite useful to jazz up any matte stain/lip color since they hardly impart any color. But, they do impart visible shimmery sheen and glossy finish which can spice up any monotone/matte/semi-matte stain or lip color.
My teen age sisters and relatives love it as they can wear them to their college or offices any time. Hence, I find it perfect for every skin type and age group irrespective of the season. I might get them again and I would definitely recommend them to everyone. I am sure it is going to be loved by many young girls and beginners!
Let’s sum up pros and cons:
Pros of Lulu Hello Holiday Lip Gloss Duo:
• A light weight, hydrating lip glosses duo in gorgeous bubble gum pink and copper-bronze brown shade with tons of sparkles to sport holiday look.
• Hints of shimmer and glossy finish are quite wearable and can be worn over any matte/semi-matte stain or lip color.
• The duo imparts sheer buildable coverage with 2+ swipes without settling around the lips.
• Does not settle into fine lines.
• These lip glosses do not accentuate rough, scaly patches on lips. In fact, they give even finish on dry-normal lips.
• Lips feel soft even after removing these.
• Shimmer stays put and does not travel the entire face.
• Wear time is quite decent.
• Shade choice is ideal for any age group, skin tone, irrespective of the seasons.
• Quite user friendly and travel friendly packaging with equally steal worthy price.
Cons of Lulu Hello Holiday Lip Gloss Duo:
• Shades do not have any name or number.
• I would have loved more pigmentation.
• Tricky for pigmented lips unless layered over another shade.
• Wear time could have been better.
Well, this set will definitely get love & attention from all teenage, office going girls for its sheer, glossy finish even with the presence of sparkles. But, beauties looking for pigmented glosses might get disappointed like me. I also find it little weird to see no shade name or description anywhere on the packaging or on their website. Overall, I love these glosses and would always love to get them again.
