L'Oreal Miss Candy Glam Shine Lip Glosses Part 1 - Review

Again with all the sugary snacks, recently my life has become a real life edition of
Candy Land, I feel like I'm trapped in Katy Perry's California Girls video but it's all good in the hood!
 I split the glosses into two posts as six products reviewed and swatched
in one post would just be too much so this will only be the lighter glosses from the collective.

The packaging is the same as the glosses in the regular Glam Shine range, small easy to grip bottles
that have golden accents and have L'Oreal's unique heart shaped wand that is basically a spin on
a typical doe foot applicator only the foot is wider, flexible and as it is heart shaped it holds the product
better than a doe foot applicator as far as non brush lip gloss wands go this is the way forward.

The formula of the Glam Shine lip glosses in the Miss Candy range are fairly thick
but easy enough to apply without being overly sticky or uncomfortable to wear.
They sit well on the lips and don't highlight dry patches or fine lines,
I found them to be fairly hydrating and a great addition to a matte lip shade that lacks moisture.
I have to be truthful and say that the three below that I have reviewed are not massively pigmented
but they are not marketed in such light so I don't really feel disappointed.
They are great for a subtle hint of colour or shimmer and work well over other lip shades.
In terms of wear I found them to last around the two hour mark on average.

As mentioned there is six shades in the Miss Candy Glam Shine Lip Gloss range
here is the three more pastel based shades:

709 Miss Candy - I was a little apprehensive about this duo as I never pick up purple shades but
as it is a blend of silver and purple they merge together to form an iridescent transparent shade that
has a light purple blue reflection which may sound odd on paper but it actually helps to make your teeth
appear more white, try layering it over another blue based shade for an extra dazzling smile!

711 Nude Bon Bon - Unlike the other two shades in this post this features no glitter/shimmer
but is a duo of two cream layers one a light pinky beige and the other a cream shade with a hint of pink.
The layers blend to create a transparent nude shade that is really flattering either worn alone
or over a similar lip shade for extra shine, this could be used to tone down a bold shade
due to its tendency to pull fairly milky in appearance.

712 Dolce Pralina - A swirly duo of a cream medium nude shade and a layer of white silver glitter
combined the two shades blend to form a light nude shade that has a shimmer effect.
On the lips it provides a light subtle wash of nude colour with a shimmer finish to the lips, it's not terribly
pigmented but enough to give a hint of colour it looks best layered over another lip colour.

L'Oreal Miss Candy Glam Shine Lip Glosses are available now from selected L'Oreal retailers
such as Superdrug and Boots for £7.65/6ml.
