L'OREAL Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss: First impressions and Swatches

Hello Beautiful People,

Look what I have here today: L'OREAL Paris Glam Shine Balmy Gloss. 

Wait...what??

Well, this was my first reaction too when I saw them on Purplle.com. Just look at them, they look so cute.

In this sudden flare of crayon-like lipbalms from all the Beauty companies (like Revlon, Bourjois, Clinique), L'oreal has come out with these super-cute twist-up crayon lipbalms to keep up with the trend.
These were launched first in the UK a few months back and they are finally here in India now. However, UK has a lot more colours compared to us, at present but I am sure the nice L'oreal people will bring more colours soon (L'oreal, are you listening??  ^_^)

So, as soon as I saw these cute things in Purplle, I decided I had to have them. Well, at 400 bucks, why can't I indulge in them a little, hai na?? :D

There are 3 colours available currently:
- Lychee Lust
- Passion Fruit Perfect
- Peach Pleasure

In the UK, they have other shades like Guava, Watermelon, Pomegranate, Dragon fruit, etc along with the above ones. :(  Check HERE.

I got Peach Pleasure and Passion Fruit Perfect for myself (Lychee Lust is a close dupe of Revlon Balm stain in Honey Douce, which I already have.)

Now these are just the first impressions here, I will be reviewing each colour in detail within a couple of days.

So, check out the pics below :)
(uhm...slightly picture heavy, with a lot of unnecessary pictures) :/

The balm in it's "full" glory :D

Uh..acting a tad bit loony here, but well, proof to show that there is 3.5cms of product :P

How big is the balm???

Oh! I can just show it this way for reference!! :|


Ingredients list for the Health freaks :)

Swatches: 1 swipe of the balm

No No...not a badly clicked pic. This is to show you the shimmers in the balm

Can you see the shimmers in this one??

Now, that I am done with all the pictures, I would just like to remind you all that detailed reviews are coming up, so don't forget to check back soon :)

After using these balms once, all I can say is that they are very soft and easy to apply. They come in a twist-up, cute packaging that retracts. They even stay for 3-4 hours. The only issue might be the amount of glitter and shimmer in these balms. There is a lot of it!! So, they might not be great for day-wear, unless you don't mind a little shimmer on your pout, glistening in the sun.

So...are you planning to get them, yet? At 400 bucks, they are the cheapest chubby sticks that are available currently. Let me know... :)

Till next time,

RIZ... <3
