Some of you know that generally I'm not a lip-person. I prefer to "prettify" (the term I use to make hubby understand beauty things) my big eyes as I like to think that enhancing them would distract people from looking at my big nose. Hehe...
My meeting with Glossqueen has changed my opinion a little bit (read about our wonderful meeting here). At that time I asked her how do I know whether a lip product is any good. She said, "good lip products make your lips look BIG!"
Since then I try to judge a lip product by the effect it has on my lips. I can say that Molton Brown Wonderlips Glace is the first lip product I use that really makes a noticeable difference.
The paper inside the box said that it's "A lasting sheer glaze with volume boosting conditioning. Wild mango butter moisturises and softens; Maxi LipTM promotes fuller, healthier looking more voluptuous lips."
I didn't read this when I first put the lip glace on. So I was quite shocked when I saw in the mirror that my lips looked bigger than usual, even hubby noticed it. Silly me didn't realize that the Maxi LipTM really work well! LOL...
The lipshine I bought is Lychee 02. It's a very light chocolatey shade (very different from the reddish shade pictured on the website) that matches my lips very well . It's matte nude effect makes my lips look naturally polished, perfect for complimenting "loud" eye makeups.
It has smooth texture and tasteless, though I can "taste" the shea butter that keeps my lips moisturised for a few hours.
Verdict: impressive lip plumper with fantastic nude shade, it's a must-have in my bag now!
