First let me wish all of you a very very Happy Diwali! It’s my favorite festival! I love how bright and colourful everything looks at this time! I did some makeup shopping a little while ago for Diwali of course! This gloss is one of the few lip products that I got for myself. Let’s get to the review!

My experience with Yardley Lipgloss in Red Passion:
It comes in a cute plastic tube, red in colour with the company’s name written in black. The body of the gloss has nice floral design on it, making the tube look cuter. It’s a tiny tube with a screw cap. It has a slant applicator. There’s no leaking of the gloss what so ever. Overall it is travel-friendly and cute to look at.
The colour of the gloss is the same as the pack- red. It’s a beautiful red without any shimmer. It’s neither too dark nor too light. Just the perfect, soft red! I expected shimmer in it, because the name says it’s a ‘high shimmer’ lip gloss. But I’m very happy that it doesn’t have any glitter or shimmer. I do not like any shimmer/glitter on my lips.
The texture of the gloss is perfectly thick. It’s a bit sticky, the way a gloss should be. It spreads evenly on the lips. The slant applicator does a good job of spreading it evenly. In the swatch, it may look a tiny bit watery, but it’s not. On touching the gloss, it feels very moisturizing, as if touching moisturizer. On the lips, it doesn’t feel heavy but you feel the stickiness of the gloss, it’s not a con-at least for me.
My lips aren’t pigmented, the gloss looks almost natural but it has a sheen to it. The gloss isn’t that pigmented. It transfers a lot. The gloss has strong fruity, bubblegum smell to it and it does linger around for some time. That might be a con for some.
It stays put for 3+ hours easily. It survived a meal in my case. The colour doesn’t fade nor does the sheen. It looks like it’s freshly applied even after 3 hours.
