The testers in the store were not available and I was in a hurry so I picked up a shade judging it on the basis of its color. The packaging is a little simple now that I have seen beautifully packaged cosmetics in Korea. It is silver lipstick bullet fit in a clear plastic case. A metallic equivalent of the lipstick shade is given on both side of the lipstick so it is easy to guess the color in the tube. I like the small silver rectangle on the lipstick that has L’Oreal Paris embossed on it.
I like the lightweight formula of the lipstick and that is the sole reason I got it in the first place. There is a bit tingly sensation on my lips for the first few minutes after applying this lipstick but I am pretty sure this is not a lip-plumping formula. These also do not last very long on my lips. I do not think this is supposed to be a long-lasting thing either so I am not judging it on that basis. This lipstick is more like a balmy color for the lips. I do wear it without a balm underneath sometimes!
I love how glossy this lipstick is and does not dry out my lips but the shade is not opaque enough to show up on my lips. It also does not leave a stain. I feel like the pigmentation could have been better. I apply this after using a powder on my lips. It helps make the true color of the lipstick show up! Without that, the uneven pigmentation on my lips shows under this shade.
I like the formula so I would like to try out more pigmented shades that are a little more opaque and hide the true color of my lips!
But seriously what is up with the claims. They are saying the same 3 things in 7 ways! hahaha
I would try out other shades from this line even though this lipstick shade did not turn out great for me. I love how light-weight, glossy and moisturizing these lipsticks are! If only L’Oreal did something to change the scent. I am not very keen on how their lipsticks smell in general and the color selection is good!
