Ok so it is not that often that I shy away from my MAC lipsticks these days,but with the weather being so lush , I merely jut want a lip gloss to add to my lips, especially as I am only wearing it in the garden whilst water fighting with the kids .
Benefit Ultra Plush Lipgloss is my much loved favourite at the moment.
Cost - £14.50
Can be bought from Benefit online
There are six gorgeous shades in the collection
For me it is all about pink when it comes to a gloss this time of year although I would like to get my hands on the Poutragious.
So I want to share with you this gorgeous shade I have
Lollipop - The hot pink gloss is most definitely a shade I would normally pick up but what makes this different from any other is the absolutely adorable packaging.
The gloss comes in a fabulous squeeze tube , nothing different there but the fact that these are art deco design with a cream trimming flat lid to finish them off, well that is if you do not include that adorable green decor box with the cutest little ribbon to put it in.
I just love my make up in its original packaging , boxes and all so this is perfect for someone like me.
I do remember a day when I used to throw them all away and wished I had not.
The formula of the lipgloss has a very silky texture with no tackiness or sticky feeling to it.
It feels like a balm but looks like a gloss, perfect.
I love that this gloss is sheer and considering many lip glosses look clear on my lips I love that these actually hold a tint of colour .
The hint of colour is faint but it is just enough for me and I like it.
The more you add the more the colour builds up but you know what too much lip gloss is like lol, it is just not worth it , trying to get your hair of your lip looking like you have just come out of a botox treatment is not the look I like .
I am going to be honest as I do not honestly think anyone can say a lip gloss lasts for hours on end at all unless they sit with not a movement or drink or food pass their lips for hours on end.
It is a typical lip gloss for me , It lasts as long as I would expect a gloss to last , not going to lie, it transfers straight to my cup or glass soon as I take a sip of a drink and have to reapply every time I do so lol.
The nib of the lip gloss is the usual style, a slanted end with quite a large hole for the gloss to be squeezed through.
I would prefer a smaller end and hole though as it does tend to come out to fast and can get a little messy if your heavy handed like me.
I have to say these are perfect for summer, the adorable lip glosses come in other summer shades and are perfect for carrying about with you everywhere.
