This is how the cosmetic giant Clarins describes their ''Gloss Appeal'' range. The shade #05 is transparent with a slight coral tinge. It is has particles of shimmer which reflects at certain angles when it comes in contact with light. It is of non sticky and non gritty texture. Staying power of the gloss is decent. (2-3 hours).
The texture of the lipgloss is light. The fragrance of the lipgloss is mild and does not last long after application.
The packaging of the product is absolutely gorgeous. One can clearly see the coral and golden shimmer through the bottle. The wand provided to apply the gloss is soft and easy to use.
Look how beautiful the gloss looks. It is the best I have used so far. It gives a slight pumping effect too.
Recommendation: Since the lipgloss is sheer I would not recommend it to girls with pigmented lips. One can however use it on top of a matte lipstick to give their lips a glossy and plumpy effect. For me it works great just the way it is. I absolutely love this sheer lipgloss with subtle shimmer particles. It makes my lips feel so comfortable!
Which high end brand lip gloss is your favourite? Please share as I would surely consider it the next time i splurge!
Also, Sorry, as the name of the product cannot be seen on the lipgloss , it faded with time :(
