So, for Valentines Day my fiancee got me a gift card to Macy’s. I’m assuming his intent was for me to spent it on clothes or something, but my beauty addiction got the better of me and of course I went straight for the makeup! :/ Although I am more of a lipstick girl, I have been eyeing these Lancome Lip Lover glosses for quite some time now. I figured they would be nice (i.e. not sticky), well, because it’s Lancôme and the packaging was just so adorable to me! Now I just had to decide on some shades…
About the gloss: “A dewy intense lip color that creates shine and color without sacrificing moisture. Captivating color intensity combines with the hydration of a balm in this new three-in-one elixir formula. The balmy base provides up to eight hours of moisture while a smoothing layer reduces the appearance of fine lines and creates a dewy shine. Finally, the saturated pigments provide the ultimate in color pop.“- Lancome.com
I honestly love the packaging on these! There is a clear rectangular window on the front so you can actually see the color of the gloss inside, and there is a cute button that pops the cap up instead of your typical (boring) twist off. It’s the little things that please me! (Although, I can tell you how many times I’ve tried to twist it on when I was done!) The wand is flat and slightly tapered at the base. It’s very soft and much more flexible than your typical doe foot wand.
The formula of these is pretty great. It’s thick, but cushiony and comfortable. I wouldn’t describe it as sticky, but it does stay put and last longer than your average gloss. I got about 5 hours of wear from the darker shade and 4 from the lighter. There is also a very light fruity scent, but it fades fairly quickly.
I wanted to choose some light/fresh colors that would be great for the spring and summer time. For some reason, I prefer to wear glosses in the warmer months as opposed to lipstick.
Corail Cabriole– is a light shimmering coral. I love this shade, its such an easy coral to wear and it’s perfect for summer!
Framboise Etoile– is a juicy medium raspberry with no shimmer. This shade can be worn slightly sheer or built up for a more intense color. It left behind a pretty berry stain.
Overall, I am very happy with the colors I chose! I love how comfortable they are and the super shiny finish they have. I know they are a bit expensive, but sometimes you just gotta treat yo’self! 😉 They are also available at Sephora or you can get them shipped free from Nordstrom.
