L'Oreal's Glam Matte Gloss



Anybody else noted the latest pout-product finish trend? Liquid lipsticks that fall somewhere between a matte and a gloss. Say whaaat? Amazingly strange, but true and they're taking over the beauty world by storm, one brand at a time (Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet's I'm looking at you). L'Oreal are another to jump aboard with their GlamMatte Intense Matte Gloss offerings - I dropped one in my Boots basket to see what all the chat's about and, well, let's just leave it that I'll be heading back for more. ASAP...



For starters, I can't help but notice how silky the tear-drop shaped wand glides on the dreamy, creamy formula, not to mention how incredibly velvety the feeling is when you smack your chops together. Smoo-ooth. The shade selection was looking a little bare and minimal upon my arrival, in fact, only 4 shades make up the range in total. I opted for the most typical summer shade, Cherry Crop - a vibrant reddy pink. Non-drying, more like super moisturising, these last long time on the lips - I've found a few hours in, the glossy sheen wears away leaving more of a hydrated, soft matte look, which by the end of the day has worn down to an even, subtle tint. And can we please take a moment to inhale it's sugary, calorific dessert-esque scent? I just can't get enough. 

Ringing up at £7.99 a tube, they're very much worth grabbing whilst 3-for-2 applies (like now). There's only one thing left for it - more shades please, L'Oreal. A lot more shades...

  10. Thanks Amanda! I can only say I've given the Bourjois ones a swatch - they are similar, but I'd say these are a little more glossy - I really think you'd like it! Plus it smells 100x better ;-)
