Comes out the L’Oreal’s version of chubby pencils lipstick/gloss, Glam Shine Balmy Gloss! The name gives an indication of a moisturization cum lip colour version & this exactly what these cute chubby sticks are all about. The texture replicates a lip balm slightly waxy but completely non-stick without giving any gooey feel with colour depending upon the shade. The formula is extremely moisturizing & very comfortable to wear. I can directly apply these on my otherwise extremely dry lips without any prior lip balm support. I could spot only two shades at the counter, both having shimmers which are quite pronounced & does make their way through the texture giving a slight chunkier feel. Shimmers can be felt on lips but not in a very uncomfortable way. They don’t get exaggerated till the colour fades off but after that won’t behave well & starts getting displaced out of the lip line, not presenting a pretty sight. The formula doesn’t sink into the fine lines of lips but gives a nice cushiony feel with a healthy glossy shine. It feels super light even after some layering sans any waxy feeling. They don’t stain much & wears on an average for 2.5-3 hours on me with regular fading.
The packaging is quite simple & functional, chubby coloured body with silver cap. These chubby sticks are retractable without any hassles of sharpening.
Lychee Lust is a clear balmy gloss with tons of ruby & purple micro shimmers. The shimmers are not much pronounced till the balm stays on lips & once it starts wiping off they travel reflecting those colour hues. The shade basically works well for topping on matte lipsticks for me keeping lips moisturized & adding sheen on otherwise completely matte formula. It wears for 2-2.5 hours on me before getting wiped off completely leaving behind those shimmers. The wear is pretty average but looking at the comfortable formula, I don’t mind reapplications. See more pics & swatches:
- Simple, easy to locate & functional packaging.
- Retractable chubby sticks without any sharpening hassles.
- Despite of slight chunkier shimmer, the texture is smooth & glides effortlessly.
- Very moisturizing with a comfortable cushiony,non sticky & light weight formula.
- Well priced.
- Average wear. (But the cozy formula makes up for it)
- The shimmers can be felt post application & travel all across lip line after the colour fades off.
Leaving behind those chunkier shimmers, the formula is an absolute delight-moisturizing, light weight, non sticky & comfortable, which makes up for the average wear. Lychee Lust is clear balmy gloss with ruby & purple shimmers. The shimmers don’t present a pretty site after the colour wipe off which is my only grudge here!
