After reviewing a ton of Sally Hansen nail polishes, I think it’s time I review something else from one of my favorite cosmetic brands. Today, I’m reviewing a lip gloss from Sally Hansen in the shade Luminous. Luminous is a very pretty n*de brown lip gloss perfect for everyday wear. Read on to know more about it.
o Provides a luminous diamond shine
o Improves lip texture every time you use it
o Time-release Lipid Moisture Complex and Retinal treat lips for up to 12 hours
o Microfine diamonds add instant radiance
Product price: $4.95. I purchased it for INR 375 at a beauty store in Delhi that sells imported cosmetics.
My experience with Sally Hansen Luminous Diamond Lip Treatment :
Packaging: the packaging of Sally Hansen lip glosses is actually very plain and simple. It comes in a plastic see through tube that shows the color of the gloss inside and a metallic silver top handle. It does not have anything written on the tube, only on the carton it came in (I couldn’t click the pictures of the carton this gloss comes in because I bought this gloss 5-6 months ago). There is a teeny tiny sticker at the bottom which denotes the shade name i.e. Luminous. The packaging of this lip gloss can very well be compared to that of Maybelline Color Sensational lip glosses only these Sally Hansen lip glosses come in a slightly tinier packaging.
Shade: Luminous is a n*de brown lip gloss. It has an impeccable shine though it is not over the top. It looks very beautiful on the lips. Overall, it really compliments my skin tone. Because it is such a pretty every-day wear kind of shade, this lip gloss has been getting a lot of love from me these past few months. I have been wearing every other day. This is one such shade that I feel will suit all skin tones. This lip gloss does not contain any shimmer particles, making it glossy without being excessively shimmery on the lips.
Texture and pigmentation: The texture of Sally Hansen lip gloss is very smooth. It does not feel sticky or greasy on the lips. it does feel a little tingly though but this tingling sensation subsides after a couple of minutes of application. It instantly brightens up the face despite being a neutral color so in this regard, this lip gloss does stand up to its claim. It is a very moisturizing lip gloss. I don’t usually wear a lip balm or a lipstick underneath this lip gloss and on its own too, this lip gloss keeps my lips moisturized for good 4+ hours. It is nicely pigmented lip gloss. I usually wear only two coats of this lip gloss and it stays on me for around 3 hours with a light meal. This lip gloss does not transfer as much as most lip glosses do.
Pros of Sally Hansen Luminous Diamond Lip Treatment :
- I think for the quality that this lip gloss has to offer, it is quite aptly priced.
- Stands true to its claim of keeping the lips moisturized.
- Provides a beautiful shine to the lips.
- Does not transfer much.
- Stays on for 3-4 hours on me.
- Excellent color payoff.
- Hides the pigmentation of my lips.
- One such color that will suit most skin tones. Perfect n*de lip gloss for Indian skin tones.
- Compact and travel-friendly packaging.
- Does not contain any shimmer particles. Yayyy!
Cons of Sally Hansen Luminous Diamond Lip Treatment :
• Though it does not make much of a difference, but I feel the packaging could have been at least a little more informative.
• People who prefer shimmery lip glosses may not like this lip gloss.
• Has a weird smell (though the smell subsides after a few ,minutes of application)
• Gives a tingling sensation on the lips when applied. Kind of bothers me.
Will I repurchase it/ do I recommend Sally Hansen Luminous Diamond Lip Treatment ?
I already own three more of these Sally Hansen lip glosses and I do like them a lot, so I will repurchase without question. And I do recommend it.
3.75/5 (3 points for the pigmentation and the gorgeous color alone!!!)
Conclusion on Sally Hansen Luminous Diamond Lip Treatment :
It is a great lip gloss for every day wear, does not contain any shimmer particles and keeps the lips very moisturized.
