Review: Louboutin lip gloss!
For et halvt års tid siden lavede jeg et review omkring Christian louboutins læbestift, og det endte med at blive et af mine mest læste indlæg (I kan læse det her!). Da jeg så fik fingrene i den nye lip gloss, vidste jeg, at jeg også måtte skrive om det nyeste skud på Louboutin Beauty stammen. Da disse indlæg som sagt er ret populære, har jeg valgt at skrive størstedelen på engelsk, så det ikke bliver alt for overvældende. Jeg håber, at I vil læse med alligevel 😉
English: Six months ago I did a review on the Christian Louboutin lipstick, and it is one of my most read posts (read it here!). When I got a hold of the new CL lip gloss, I knew that I had to do a review for you guys.. Hope you’ll enjoy it!
Since they don’t sell the beauty line at the Louboutin store in Copenhagen, I had to ask one of my friends to buy it for me in London. You can find it in Harrods for £60. Did you read that? £60! That’s more than what I spend on food in a month.. I knew that it would be pricey, so I was excited to see if it was worth the money. It comes in this beautiful box, which looks gorgeous on my makeup stand.
The range has 8 colors to choose from, going from nudes to bright reds. I picked this ligh pink gloss, with little spakles in it. This one is called Akenana. The applicator has the perfect shape and size, which makes it easy to apply. You don’t even need a mirror. The formula is pretty thick, and it gets a little sticky on your lips. Some people can’t stand it, but I don’t mind. I actually think that the color and shine stay on longer when the gloss is sticky.
The color does stay on for a long time, and even when you feel that there’s not much left on your lips, they are still very shiny. I wanted to wipe it off the product when we were having dinner, and I really had to wipe it hard to get all of the color off. I was really impressed!
Now for the sad part.. I don’t have a lot of bad things to say about it, but one thing is really bothering me. The smell! When you pay £60 for a lip product, you expect it to be as luxurious as it can get. This just smells like a hand cream, or a cheap face moisturizer. I was so disappointed when I smelled it the first time, and I know that I’m not the only one that feels this way.
+: Beautiful color, great shine, the right amount of stickiness (an issue for some people), the lasting power, color payoff, amazing packaging.
-: Crazy price, nasty smell.
Overall, I have to give it 5/6 stars. It is not worth the price, but you need to own it if you love CL as much as I do. Besides, it is one of the best lip glosses I have ever tried, even though the smell is awfull. If you want to take a look at all of them, you can fin them on the CL webside right here. I hope you found this review helpful! 🙂
