 L’oreal Glam Shine Cream Lipstick in Grape Juice: Review and Swatches

I’ve had this lipstick with me for quite some time now and I just can’t stop loving it. I adore everything about it…the texture, the packaging, the fragrance….all except the fact that the shade looked different when I swatched it in the store and is a tad too conspicuous for my liking (am a nude shade gal) :). But I still use it over or under other lipsticks.

It was kinda difficult to take photos of this coz the packaging is soo shiny and kept reflecting light. Also, the shade is slightly darker than how it appears in the following pics.

Shade name and description:-

The shade I’ve bought is No: 107. It’s called “Grape juice” and the lippie looks very true to its name. Though it looks deep pink in the tube, it comes out as a sheer, glossy strawberry pink in 1 swipe. Two more swipes and u get a plummy shade. It’s a lovely shade but looks sooo different in different lights. Under yellow lights and at night, it looks almost like clear gloss with a hint of pink. But under sunlight the shade looks very bright. I don’t like loud colors so in the daytime I layer it with a nude shade to tone down the color. But if you like vibrant pinks, then you’re gonna love this.

Packaging:

It comes in a sleek steel case with a translucent pink plastic band in the center. The lid closes with a click and it fits snugly and won’t open up in your purse. Overall, the packaging is really sturdy and classy.

Performance:

The first thing you notice when you open the cap is the smell. It’s this really yummy, fruity, plum-cake-like aroma. The lipstick glides effortlessly onto the lips and is soooo moisturizing that even the driest of lips won’t require a lip balm underneath it. The color comes across as quite sheer. It can be built up in a couple more swipes and is decently pigmented. The color stays put for 2 to3 hours. The glossiness vanishes after a while but it leaves behind a nice tint. Since it claims to have a plumping effect, I expected a slight tingling sensation which is generally the case with lip-plumpers. But there was no such feeling. It did make my lips look fuller but I’m not too sure if there’s any majorly visible plumping. Well…it’s not like I expected my lips to look like Angelina Jolie’s after 1 swipe but I really couldn’t make out any remarkable difference in my pout 😛

What I like about L’oreal Glam Shine Cream Lipstick:

  • Classy, sturdy, travel-friendly packaging
  • Glossy, creamy and sheer color
  • Non-sticky
  • Smooth texture that glides onto lips
  • Doesn’t require a lip balm underneath since its very moisturizing
  • Lovely fruity aroma

What I don’t like about L’oreal Glam Shine Cream Lipstick:

  • Plumping claim is questionable. But lips do appear fuller
  • Not for those looking for full coverage

Final verdict:

This is a fab combination of lipstick and lipgloss. I would really like to try other shades from this range but sadly it’s been discontinued L(. I have reason to believe L’oreal Nutrishine lipstick is a remake of this. Ana and Zara have raved enough bout it :). You can read the review here:
