I saw this new L'oreal StudioSecrets Universal Lip Glow product in this month’s Elle magazine and was instantly intrigued as I am a big fan of tinted lip balms/lipsticks. Both Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm and Clinique Chubby Sticks have made it in my handbag as a daily essential, so as a sad beauty junkie I had to try this.
Here’s a little more info on the Lip Glow, which has been defined as a lipstick rather than a lip balm in the case of the others. It’s L’Oreal Paris' first lipstick that adapts uniquely to the moisture of your lips to form a bespoke, individual colour. I love the result of a tailor-made shade of pink with a subtle finish. It’s not as strong as the Clinique Chubby Stick, but a real natural sheen (see photos below)
The lipglow feels really smooth on your lips and light, which as nice as most lipsticks do feel quite heavy for daytime wear. It is also enriched with pomegranate extract, emollient oil and polymers to leave your lips feeling soft and supple. I love the taste as well and am still trying to put a finger on what it tastes like! It’s very fruity!
The colour of the lipglow is very orange and transparent but don’t be put off! This is due to the combination of two gelling agents and the absence of wax. Either way it does look pretty cool. I also love the pink and black packaging (my favourite colours). The only negative I can find is it doesn’t seem to last that long on my lips, which is a real shame as that would make it a perfect product. Price is good too - £8.99 which is cheaper than the Clinque & Clarins products.
Let me know if you have tried this product and what you think!
