L’Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss Pomegranate Punch Review & Swatches


L’Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss Pomegranate Punch


I guess 2013 was dedicated to lip crayons. Every company launched these and we kept emptying our wallets to try them all. So, how can L’Oreal stay behind, and guess what they launched the cheapest lip crayons in the market. I had to try at least one. 😉

Packaging: Typical lip crayon type. Thank god it’s retractable, so no jhikjhik of sharpening. :-D  plus the packaging is colour coded which makes it easier to locate if you have more than one of these.

My experience with L’Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss Pomegranate Punch:

True to its claim it’s very glossy and very balmy. It hydrates my lips in a jiffy, making them look plump and glossy. Texture wise it’s pretty smooth and feels feather light on lips. This shade is a beautiful deep red berry kinda shade bordering on maroon when layered heavily. Okay! Don’t be scared it can be used as a soft stain too which looks lovely. It’s one of those shades which are universally flattering.

It contains pink shimmer particles which is the only thing that stops me from reaching out for it very often. Even though the shimmer particles don’t look obvious on lips but they stay behind even after the color fades which I absolutely detest. Staying power is pretty good given its buttery smooth texture. It stays on for about 4 hours on me.

What I don’t like about L’Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss Pomegranate Punch:

  • Pink shimmer. Even though it’s not gritty but still it stays on and leaves its mark :’-(
