As you all know I am a lip product addict so any chance I get to swatch and play around with new lipsticks, I go for it! I recently discovered the Glo & Ray brand through the wonderful world of Instagram and was instantly attracted to the packaging.
I love simple and chic packaging, it’s not to bulky and still looks like a luxury product for a £12 lipstick. I am a total sucker for embossed make-up of any kind, it just gives it that element of luxury and is great branding I think.
Crush is definitely my favourite shade, it is almost identical to Anita from NARS and very similar to Brave by MAC but it has more of a gloss finish. All the lipsticks glide on effortlessly and feel very smooth, the creamy shimmer lipsticks look gorgeous on and are very well pigmented but are not that long-lasting. The texture and look remind me very much of the NARS Audacious lipsticks which I love. The matte lipstick lasts longer and the colour Passion is just gorgeous! As you can see from the swatches, Scandal is also a gorgeous nude with a less pink undertone, it also seems more sheer than Crush.
All of these lipsticks instantly seem to give the illusion of fuller, more pouty lips which is something I look for in lip products especially for special occasion lipsticks. Some lipsticks are gorgeous but tend to look flat, these have texture and dimension, to make your lips look fuller.
