Here’s the last in my trio of Maybelline product reviews! As someone who’s never been a massive lip gloss person, here’s a review of one of the new Maybelline Lifter Glosses in the shade Moon.
Here’s what they claim;
This breakthrough formula with Hyaluronic Acid visibly smoothes lip surface and enhances lip contour with high shine for hydrated, fuller-looking, plumped lips. Plus, its XL wand transforms lips in an easy, one swipe application. This hydrating lip gloss is available in a full range of modern shades, like Pearl, Ice, Amber, Topaz, Crystal and more. Apply it for a hydrating, glossy shine and fuller, plumping look.
Packaging & Price
At £8.99 a pop they’re relatively in the middle of the range when it comes to drugstore lip option and in line with the rest of Maybelline’s lip options. The packaging is this big, chunky clear plastic bottle with a nude lid. Overall I quite like the packaging, but it does feel a little chunky and so takes up quite a lot of space in your makeup bag!
There are 8 shades in total. From the shade Ice (which is a clear/white based glosh) through a whole selection of various nudes. Honestly I often get a number of shades to review when it comes to a lip option… but it just didn’t feel worth it! Not only do I not wear lip gloss often, but most of the shades look the same!
I have the shade Moon, which is a sheer peachy pink lipgloss with almost a gold reflective glitter in it
First thing to say is this is not pumping at all. So if you’re expecting this to make your lips tingle, then you’ll be disappointed. But if you don’t like that (which is where I stand), then you’ll probably prefer it. It’s one of those sticky lipglosses that you feel on your lips and your hair gets stuck to it. And while it’s not drying, and it does make your lips look juicy, it’s just too heavy…. and then it wipes off after an hour. And I know a lot of lip glosses are like this, but I have certainly tried better lip glosses (I see you Max Factor)…
I mean, I’m sure you’re getting this vibe from this review, but this is not for me. I don’t like to feel like I’m wearing a lip product (unless it’s a balm)… and I also don’t really want my lips to rub off in an hour! But I’m also not a fan of lip glosses, so I’m also not surprised!
Have you tried this? If so, what did you think?
