MY TAKE ON THIS PRODUCT
The shade Hot Aubergine is a brownish-maroon colour. There are 10 different shades in total. The product packaging is simple. The name clearly reflects that the packaging is transparent cube shaped which makes it easy to see the product colour inside the container. You get a doe foot applicator with a thin wand for an easy application.
The product is itself quite thick & shiny. The best thing about it is that it does not feel sticky at all, as most glosses have a sticky feeling. It has a miniature glitter in it. The glitter is not tacky, which is a plus point. The gloss is high shine. It is not highly pigmented. Even the wear time is not that great. I was highly disappointed by the wear time which has less than 2 hours. I have an oily skin & I do not expect glosses to stay long on my lips. But this was very disappointing as there was no stain, no moisture left, literally no signs of gloss after 2 hours of application.
My Rating & Recommendation: Pass (6/10)
