Lancome Color Fever Gloss in Green Petal ($31 Cdn) is a sheer, soft green lip gloss from the Roseraie Des Delices (Spring 2012) Collection, out now. Now, I know the combination of green and lip gloss is hard to digest, but looks like Lancome is out to change our perceptions.
You must be thinking, green lipgloss, you gotta be kidding me right? Well, turns out it is quite beautiful. The thing is, it is very much a green gloss but really, really sheer. So much so, that you only see pure shine on your lips when you put it on. Yes, so you may be disappointed if you wanted some green fireworks. It is subtle, pretty and shiny. I really like the formula of this particular gloss, it is shiny, moisturizing, long lasting (2+ hours on me*, holy batman this gloss is a champ!). It feels super comfortable on the lips and has a slight cooling, sweet taste to it. Lancome’s doe foot applicator on the gloss is just love – I haven’t felt a better applicator on my lips, really!
Overall thoughts: It is sheer, so don’t expect fireworks which are green in colour on your lips. If you are OK with that, then this gloss is worth looking into. It is long lasting, moisturizing and shiny; has all the ingredients for a perfect everyday gloss.
Overall Rating: B+
*No lip product lasts more than four hours on me, hence, the excitement.
