Lip gloss is used to give lips a glossy sheen and sometimes slight color. It should not to be confused with a lip balm, which generally has soothing purposes. It can be completely clear, transparent or of various shades including frosted, glittered, glassy, and metallic finishes. Nowadays, in the market, we do get lip balms which are pigmented, but still they don’t serve the same purpose as a lip gloss. Today, everybody uses a lip gloss, I however got a chance to use a lip gloss only after my teenage days!
My first lip gloss was from Streetwear, I don’t remember its name or number, but it was very shimmery and pinkish in colour, and how much I loved that colour!
Anyway, let’s talk about today’s deal. Here is the picture of its applicator.
Maybelline Water Shine Liquid Diamond Lip Gloss gives you the voluptuous dazzling lips you’ve always wanted. Hi-shine liquid format makes the lips perfectly supple and brilliantly shiny that reminds you of light reflecting off the water surface. Unmatched glossy shine that lasts through the day. Non-sticky nature, superior spread-ability.
How To Use:
Start with the center of your lower lip and glide gently towards the outer edges. Follow the same technique for your upper lip. TIPS- Use only gloss for understated daywear or alternatively, combines them with a similar coloured lip-stain for maximum effect and a bolder lip colour during the evening.
Rs. 190 for 3 ml (can get at discounted price as well).
My Take on Maybelline Watershine Liquid Diamonds Lip Gloss: Berry Stars
These are very cute and small sturdy bottles. These look travel friendly, but I am a little afraid to keep it in my handbag as the cap of the gloss looks very weak! I actually wanted to buy the shade “Crystal Amethyst,” but due to a horrible mistake, I ordered the “Berry Stars” shade, which is “an” okay shade too. It has got a nice, creamy, non-sticky texture, which is said to be one of its features, along with a mild but pleasant fragrance. It’s neither too thick nor too thin. It moisturizes the lips and does not make it dry. Pigmentation is good too. My only concern was the sparkles in this lip gloss. It’s very shimmery. I was a little apprehensive in wearing it during daytime, but if it’s party time, it’s always welcome any time of the day! It stays for no more than 2 hours on my lips (without eating).
It is available in 15 shades namely, Caramel Pearl, Clear Gloss, Berry Stars, Pink Ruby, Strawberry Carats, Naked Brown, Precious Lilac, Coral Sunset, Caramel Cream, Chocolate Glitters, Soft Mauve, Beige Sensation, Chocchoc, Crystal Amethyst and Pink Glitter.
I really cannot describe the shade as I don’t have just one word for it, so please bear with me. Please see the swatches to know more about the shade 21 Berry Stars!
What I Like about Maybelline Watershine Liquid Diamonds Lip Gloss: Berry Stars
- Affordable price.
- Nice texture, these glosses are very smooth and glide across your lips lightly and effortlessly.
- Good pigmentation with awesome colour options in the same range!
- These lip glosses also have a slight lip plumping effect to give you fuller lips.
What I Do Not Like about Maybelline Watershine Liquid Diamonds Lip Gloss: Berry Stars
- Staying power is just 1.5 hours on my lips; they just don’t stay for long!
- Somehow, I think when applied on to the lips, this just shows a lot of sparkles and no colour!
Will I Buy Maybelline Watershine Liquid Diamonds Lip Gloss: Berry Stars Again?
If you are looking for a budget product, your prayers are answered! I will buy other shades as well as it is very affordable. I have already ordered some other shades online as I will gift these to some of my relatives and this time, I paid attention when I ordered.
4/5 (minus 1 for not giving the colour it describes).
