I bought Silky Java, as it was the closest match I could find to my HG, Loreal Endless Perfect Plum, that was discontinued years ago. Since then, I have been on the hunt for a replacement, and unfortunately, Silky Java is not it. While the color is almost spot on to Perfect Plum (Java is just a tinge more muted), it has no longevity whatsoever and to me, is more of a balm because the consistency is so buttery soft and "wet", which are not qualities I prefer in my lipsticks. I like more matte and less shimmer. Although a gorgeous color with my skin tone, I will not purchase again and will move onto Revlon Colorstay or something else with more staying power.
Endless Red is the shade I picked.
I'm usually more of a high-end cosmetics girl, but saw this on some morning talk show and decided to pick up a tube at the market.
I have used loads of lipsticks, glosses and stains over the years and this is definitely different than anything else I've tried. It goes on very liquidy, which many may like. I've read a lot of complaints about "sticky" consistency, which I happen ot like. Not sticky so much as thick-ish. This ain't that. :) BUT for summer when my lips are not chaffed I think it's a good product.
I found the color to last longer than most others I have tried, so that's a good thing. The red shade goes on a sort of transparent red, if that makes sense. The finish or color reminds me of childhood days when you had a red snow cone and it left that stain on your lips. Very natural.
I think I like it.
I agree with other reviews that the absence of a safety seal is unacceptable L'Oreal (a multi-million dollar company?!?!). Are you kidding? A tear off plastic seal would do the trick, and would be cheap. I dug for a tube with no fingerprints in the back of display, but still... I think I wouldn't buy again based upon that single issue.
Long lasting, and kinda moisturizing, I like the wet shine aqua caresse lipglosses in externally nude
There's absolutely nothing I do not love about these products!
I'm not really a lipstick kind of girl, but not really a lipgloss kind of girl either.
these are the perfect middle for me.
they're not TOO pigmented to the point where you need to be in front of a mirror to apply it, but the packaging is clearly reflective so it can be used as a mirror regardless if you want to be sure of your application
they feel like a highly pigmented lip balm as a reviewer has mentioned.
I have 3 colors
sunset angora = a beautiful true coral color (HG color for me)
blushing sequin = MLBB since my lips are very pigmented, they're a muted red and this color just brightens them up beautifully
pink cashmere = very vibrant pink. not the best pick for me but a pretty color regardless
I'm totally in love with this line, definitely going to be picking up more
I have 3 shades of these: Blushing Sequin, Sheer Linen and Cotton Pink.
I wear Sheer Linen and Cotton Pink the most as I find these the most suitable to the eye make up I wear, whereas Blushing Sequin is a tad bit too bright red for me.
I REALLY like these! In the past, I've never tried L'Oreal lipsticks but I am so glad I got to try these out. These are moisturizing lipsticks, that have a very balm-ish application to them, yet provides decent colour payoff.
- Super moisturizing
- Somewhat stains your lips (esp with colours like Cotton Pink & Blushing Sequin). The stain isn't obvious to others, but definitely makes the appearance of the colour lasting a bit longer
- Sleep packaging - although packaging is something I don't really care for
- Relatively priced
- Good colour selection
- Longevity is ....2 hours MAX (shorter if eating/drink). This is due to the lipstick being really moisturizing that it slips around on your lips
- Need at least 2 coats for a true colour to show up
I honestly think that if you want a lipstick that you can apply anywhere that acts like a lipblam, get this! The colours are subtle and nice, and fool proof. This really hydrates your lips too and is relatively priced below $10
I really like the look of the packaging on this product. It looks very pretty and expensive, but for hygienic reasons there should be a tamper proof seal so that you know nobody has tampered with the product. As far as the product itself, ehh.. I'm just not a big fan, which disappointed me because of all the hype. These are just too sheer for my liking.. At least the colors I have anyway. Now if you don't like a lot of color on your lips, these would be good for you. But if I'm paying $10 or more for a lipstick, I'd really like to get the color that I payed for! These are very slippery on the lips and not long wearing at all.. Which I personally don't like. I'm more of a long-wearing fan. I give these products about a 2 hour lasting time & that's if you're not doing anything with your mouth. Now if you're eating, drinking, kissing, etc. say goodbye to your lip color within the first 10 mins. In my opinion these are just not worth the price or all the hype they're getting. If you like sheer lipstick that you have to reapply often, then these are what you're looking for.
These are my new favorite lipsticks. I look best in a sheer soft color, and these are perfect.
Beautiful packaging, almost no scent to the product, very moisturizing, sheer pretty colors. You need to reapply often, not long wearing.
Lots of colors
Easy to find
almost no scent
don't last very long
overpriced at $9.99
I loved this product it glided on so smoothly and i really dont like lipsticks that are too pigminted but i loved the color on this one and the texture so i tried it out on only my bottom lip and rubbed my lips together for a softer effect and it worked I love the product but my lipstick was sideways when i got it so its not bad packaging but i love the texture the feel and the color I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!
With all the hype I expected this product to perform much better then it has. Color - good, staying power - falls way short of the commercial promise. The first hour was the best for me, within 3 hours it looked like nothing. Packaging is poor as all you need to do is twist the end, any one can open it and touch the wand. Need a tamper-proof seal on it. Will stick to the competition that begins with "R" for my lip stain.
I am reviewing Sheer Linen - a fabulous pinky mauved brown (slightly browner than their all time fave Fairest Nude) however the texture is a bit glossy/greasy for me and melts all over the place and gets in your hair (I am not a gloss fan) but still a lovely product.
