12 Days Of Lipstick #10 – L’Oreal Balmy Gloss in Mad For Pomegranate


Ahh L’Oreal, you and your crazy long ass names.. couldn’t it have just been Balmy Gloss? Anyway.. this is actually really nice and I’m pleased that due to a 3 for 2 AND a threshold spend deal I bought 2.. I shall blog about the second later.. it’s not quite so festive. L’Oreals Balm sticks are much the same to look at as every other chubby lip pencil on the market right now however they are very much a lip lacquer as opposed to a stain. You’re going to get a hydrating pop of colour but you will have to touch up throughout the day. Much as I like a long wearing product I do prefer this to the Revlon versions.. it just feels nicer.


This particular colour isn’t just your average pinky red (which by the way is ALWAYS my favourite bright shade) it has a beautifully subtle iridescent shimmer which is really not that noticeable until you look up close but I think gives the illusion of plumper lips and gives that glossy shine a little extra something. I’m surprised it took L’Oreal so long to jump on this bandwagon but I’m glad they did.. I’ll be picking up more of these for sure!
