This month has been absolutely insane. I managed to find a new rental, pack all my belongings, remove all of that stuff from the old house, and get everything at least placed somewhere in the new house all in less than a month. As a result, as I mentioned would happen, I did not have time to write to you all! I did, however, keep getting samples sent to me, so I have plenty to review. Here is what you will be seeing in the next few days: A hybrid between my normal individual reviews, my first impressions and my box wrap up posts, all in one post per sample subscription. I will wrap up the rest of May and use the aforementioned model for all of my June products which should be reviewed in time to start my July products as I normally do – HOWEVER, if you like this new method let me know and I can switch to less frequent but bigger posts. Up to you, my friends. Thanks, as always, for reading!
Today I bring you the Kryolan High Gloss Brilliant Lip Shine in Toffee that I received in my May Glossy Box. This is, I suppose, the perfect example of a glossy nude lip however for me it was too glossy and NOT a good color.
The formula itself is ok – it is super high gloss and only minimally sticky. It stayed for a good couple hours before wearing all the way off. If you apply a thin coat it highlights every crease and crevice in your lips, but if you apply it heavily then you don’t see those lines.
I’d give this a try in a different color before I say nay to it for certain, but as it is, I just couldn’t get there and like it. This is, I believe, the first lipgloss to go in the “throw” bin.
Would I buy the product again? Unlikely, unless there is a great sale to buy it cheap in a more complimentary color.
Will I finish the sample? No, this color made me look ill *sad*
Here’s the breakdown:
