Pomegranate Cream Lip Gloss

Quantity: 0.30 oz.

Its one of the best lip gloss which I have used till now. Most lip glosses are either too sticky or very sheer and don't stay on lips for more then an hour. Pomegranate Cream Lip Gloss is very smooth and moisturizing and at the same time it has a very good staying power.  The colour of the lip gloss is a very bright fuschia pink but once applied, it gives a very beautiful pink glossy look to the lips. This gloss does not settle into the fine lines and provides a nice moisturized effect without being sticky at all. In fact, it can even be used as a tinted lip balm. The staying power is quite good for a gloss which is so moisturizing and it stayed on my lips for around 3 hours, with occasional sips of water and coffee. I washed my face with water and after that too, I could notice that the colour was not completely washed with water and left a slight tint on my lips.

Left - Swatched once and applied with applicator, Right - Swatched Twice 
My Experience with Lip Gloss Glaze - Rose Garden

I am very fond of wearing light shades of gloss because i have thick lips and bright and bold colours dont suit me well. The lip gloss glaze is not at all sticky and gives a nice coverage. I have light lips but this will give a decent amount of coverage to pigmented lips as well. The gloss is neither too much nor too less, just the right amount to give a nice shine to lips.

The Good about Lip Gloss Glaze - Rose Garden 
Moisturizing and nice colour payoff.
Decently Priced.
Nice subtle shimmer and lips would'nt look like a disco ball :-P
Can be worn sheer or build up for a nice pigmented colour. 
Would help to provide decent coverage to pigmented lips also. 
Comes in a tube packaging with regular doe foot applicator, which makes it travel friendly too.

The Not so Good about Lip Gloss Glaze - Rose Garden
  • Not available in India. 
  • Can be purchased only through website.

I received 4 Eye shadow samples in
  • Primrose Princess,

    Primrose Princess, Gold Royalty, Fuschia Fantasy and Emrald Isle  



Price: $6 each
Quantity: 0.35oz
Ingredients:
Mica, Iron Oxide, Titanium Dioxide. Matte shades also contain Serecite.
The eye shadows are very pigmented with a lot of shimmer, making them perfect for an evening out with friends or a party. I have never done any eye makeup before, So I am not the right person to do justice if I comment about the good and bad of these. Please, make do with the swatches only. ;-P
