When Maybelline revamped their lip glosses, I ran over to the drugstore and purchased the four that appealed the most to me. I tried them out and honestly, forgot about them and left them in my drawer. I guess they weren't that impressionable to me at the time because if I had loved them, they would've been constantly used. So I left them alone until about last week when I was cleaning out my makeup stash. I decided to give them a second chance.
I'm so glad I did.
I don't know what was wrong with me the first time I tried these because I'm loving these right now. Maybe I wasn't in a gloss mood at the time, but these are great glosses! There are 12 different shades, some have shimmer while some are cream finishes. Out of the four I have, Iced Chocolate is the only shade that has shimmer. If you want to check these out, I would definitely take a close look to see which ones are shimmer or cream. You can't tell from the swatches on the Maybelline website, (insert sad Panda face.)
According to Maybelline, these are wax free and contain honey nectar. I don't know about all that, but these don't dry my lips or make them peel like some other glosses I've tried. Another big plus in my book for this product.
I also love that these glosses are creamy but not tacky. If you hate the tackiness of MAC lipglasses, then I think you would love these. The scent is fruity and doesn't linger after you apply. Another plus for me with these glosses is the fact I can wear these alone or layer them. I definitely love layering them with my lipsticks, especially ones that are too bright or pale for me. My current favorite lip combo has been this:
If you are interested in these glosses I'd highly recommend you try them. They're not as raved about but the quality is great. I don't think I'll get any more shades, but I would definitely repurchase when I'm finished!
