L'oreal Universal Lip Glow

L'Oreal Paris Studio Secrets Universal Lip Glow

'L'Oréal Paris' first lipstick that adapts uniquely to the moisture of your lips to form a bespoke, individual colour. The result: a tailor-made shade of pink with a subtle finish.'

I received this lipstick from one of my friends for my birthday and it got me really excited. First of all I love the packaging, the bright pink band around the middle makes it stand out but the best part had to be the product itself as it’s transparent! I think this is a great selling point which will grab a lot of attention as there aren’t many other products like this out the at the minute.

It’s marketed as a ‘Lip Glow’ and I think this is the best way to describe it. The formula is very hydrating almost like a lip balm but not as heavy as a lipstick. It applies sheer but the colour is buildable so if you want a brighter shade, just keep layering it on.

I use it quite lightly and it gives me a gorgeous subtle hint of colour which is perfect for the day time, I have been keeping mine on my desk at work and using it throughout the day to keep my lips moisturised without looking OTT. The colour however does not have the best staying power.

This retails for £8.49 in Boots and Superdrug. I don’t think it’s a bad price but if you’re just looking for something to keep your lips hydrated throughout the day I’d probably say you’re better off just buying a tin of Vaseline or Palmers Moisturizing Lip balm as it will do a better job and save you some money too.
Overall I do like this product but it’s not something I will be raving over and probably won’t be repurchasing when it runs out.

Have you tried the L’oreal Lip Glow? Are there any similar products you would recommend?
