Here I am with one more review from VOV. It is a gloss named “Scarlet” from the water shine liquid lip colour range. The last time I went to a local shop I guess I picked up 6-7 of these VOV glosses as I was trying their glosses for the first time. I picked up only one brown and the others were peachy pink ones as I don’t apply lot of browns , so skipped them. There were about 20-22 shades in this range. So let’s see how this shade worked for me .
Price: Rs. 130 for 10 ml
My experience with VOV Water Shine Liquid Lipcolour – Scarlet:
I mostly pick up glosses that are either in pink, peach or corals or simply sheer ones. Purples and browns are not my cup of tea actually. I only wear browns for some functions to match my outfits. Talking about the packaging, it comes in a plastic cylindrical bottle with a silver line in the middle and with a black top. The packaging looks quite decent according to the price we pay. It does not look cheap at all. It is made up of plastic, a thick one so does not break even if it falls hard. It is 5 centimetres smaller than the palm size , so handy to carry. One thing I saw are these alphabets on the bottle and they were L, I, P, O, S. I think they wanted to put alphabets spelling lipgloss but they forgot to put a G lol, so that was one packaging error that I noticed. The shade is a beautiful peachy pink one and looks really pretty when applied. The shade is actually noticeable and makes your face look brighter but this is a dark pink shade so heavy eye make-up should be avoided when this is applied. It makes the face look even brighter.
This may surely suit Indian skin tones as it somewhere near fuchsia but not exactly, so this becomes a good pick for those who think they cannot carry dark fuchsia shades. It smells very cute almost like those pickwick vanilla flavoured biscuits and I love that smell, a mild one and not that very overpowering. The shade is very pigmented and it is exactly the colour that we can see from outside the bottle. One swipe is more than enough as the shade is pigmented and if you apply more swipes it will become too heavy and thick. The texture is creamy and a little thick and I am happy it does not have shimmers. It does give a nice water shine as the name suggests and your lips do look fuller and glossy. The staying power was quite good, the entire colour stayed on my lips for two hours and then it slowly started to fade but the pink shade was always there on my lips, I mean it did not give me bare lips like I haven’t applied anything. As it’s a dark shade it takes a long time in completely fading away and that is a plus point for us. Overall obviously we have tried better brands but this is not bad. It is worth all the price we put in. Because I have noticed that when we buy inexpensive glosses they just give shine and nothing else, so that thing sets this one apart.
Pros of VOV Water Shine Liquid Lipcolour – Scarlet:
-A huge range of shades to select from having browns, purples, pinks and peaches and clear ones as well.
-Lasts for 2 hours and the entire shade goes only after 6-7 hours, it has a cute pink colour on your lips even when the original colour has gone off.
-Packaging is sturdy.
-Cute vanilla smell.
-The texture is very creamy.
Cons of VOV Water Shine Liquid Lipcolour – Scarlet:
-Need to spend at least 3-5 minutes to apply this gloss or else it would be uneven.
Will I repurchase/recommend VOV Water Shine Liquid Lipcolour – Scarlet?
Yes I will purchase this shade again as I really liked it and they are quite affordable as well. I will tell you guys to give this brand a chance , they have nice shades with good pigmentation at dirt cheap price compared to expensive brands.
