These lip balm/gloss hybrids just keep getting better and better! Lancome released 18 shades of this new formula which has many claims and I’m here to say they’re right on point. I chose the shade 316 because again I felt it was a safe choice (or because I’m a coral pink hoarder). When I opened the box up all I saw was shimmer in the tube and kind of panicked. I hate shimmer in a gloss, some formulas are so bad sometimes you can feel the grittiness of the glitter (cringe faces). This shimmer is so fine you can barely tell it’s on the lips once applied. The formula is hydrating, soft, and isn’t tacky at all. The color payoff is slightly sheer but pigmented enough to add color to the lips, I would think that the darker shades would definitely show up. It doesn’t settle into fine lines which is a plus for me.
Now can we talk about the button feature on this thing?! You literally push the button and pop goes the lip wand! It’s like a jack-in-the-gloss, if that makes any sense at all. Oh and talk about the satisfying click when closed, I feel ya Anna! This gloss is brilliant and I can’t wait to pick up more shades. It lasts a good 1-2 hours on the lips before having to re-apply but it’s worth it. Don’t be surprised if I tell you guys I broke the darn thing. Push da button! Push da button! Push da button!
