Since picking up the Maybelline Colour Sensational Shine Gloss in Cashmere Rose and Glorious Grapefruit, I’ve felt like a glossy shaped hole has been filled in my makeup bag. In fact, I haven’t been this excited about a lip product since I purchased the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfecter in 03 last summer – shocking really. But a bit of shine, with a little colour and no stick had me hooked and now I’m feeling the need to run back to Boots and pick up the rest of the collection.
Cashmere Rose is the lighter of the two and works better layered over a nude lip (my current favourite being the Revlon Colourburst Matte Balm in the shade Complex), giving it a slightly more pink, glowy sheen. Glorious Grapefruit is much more of a peachy pink with slightly more colour pay off. Because of this I either wear it alone or over one of the various orangey-peachy Revlon Matte Balms I have rolling around (and trust me, there are a few. Review coming soon).
So which one next? Well there’s a beautiful orange shade in the range that’s really caught my eye, and I’m feeling something a little more nude too. I can’t quite believe I’m planning my next lipgloss purchase – am I feeling okay?
