re you a review geek? Be it films, books, a new restaurant in town or a hot new gadget, do you invariably plough through tons of review sites on the web and then make up your mind about whether the said product/service/entertainment/experience is worth loosening your purse strings for.
We get your ilk. We actually like you. After all, there’s nothing smarter than making an informed choice. And so, here we are, presenting to you a brand new property on Style Mynt, Product Review.
This is how it will work. We will pick products that are buzz worthy from our catalog and give you first hand user experience account. To help you make your choices well, we will also list downs the “thumbs up” and “thumbs down” attributes of the product, so you know it’s unbiased, despite thr products beings from us.
And since it’s always ladies first, the first product we picked to review is for all the smashingly lovely ladies. Here’s the lowdown on L’Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss – Pomegranate Punch (909).
The Balmy Gloss by L’Oreal is a recently released series of three yummy shades, each inspired by a particular fruit. There’s Lychee Lust and Peach Pleasure (912). I picked the fruit that’s the most delish!
This one had me at the name. Also, the fact that the gorgeous Sonam Kapoor is the face of Balmy Gloss; one does trust the brand she attaches her name to, given her style icon status.
If you miss crayons from art class, you will so love this! We love the packaging and the fact that it’s super easy to use. Also, it has an unobtrusive fragrance, quite a refreshing change from some of the lip tints with headache inducing fragrances. A lip gloss/colour is hardly ever about the fragrance and should be more about the colour.
THE SHADE: The shade is a bit of cross between maroon and warm pink. But it’s certainly only the softer side. It’s the sort of colour that wins you over with its flexible nature. You could wear it to work for sure, because it’s not too overpowering and even to a date night, because it is glam enough if you go for a double application. And since it’s on the reddish side of maroon than brownish, it won’t weigh you down and age your face. It gives your face just the right amount of colour. Not too much, not too little.
Thumbs Up:Besides the shade itself, which would flatter any skin tone owing to its warm undertones, we’d say, it’s the texture that wins our hearts. It moistens your skin intensely!
Thumbs Down: None really; unless you are the sort who counts ”non-transferable,” and “long lasting” as hugely important attributes for lip colours. This one won’t stay after a meal, or a kiss, but long enough.
Price: Rs 400
Our Verdict: For Rs 400, we’d say, it’s quite a steal. Nothing to not love about it. Suits all purses, pun intended.
