Alright, I have a confession to make. I love watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians. I watch every new episode live on Sunday evening; and I’m a little sad that Scott isn’t doing his signature Todd Kraines prank anymore. I don’t appreciate all types of reality shows, but this one.. It’s my guilty pleasure on Sunday evenings. Apart from the hysterical episodes, the girls always look amazing. Their make-up is always fab (shaping done perfectly!) ;but I’m also a fan of how they’re not afraid to show their bare face. The sisters launched their own make-up line last year (called Khroma) and have just relaunched the brand with a new name; Kardashian Beauty. Loads of new products are coming up this month; of which also a bunch of new shades of the Lip Plumping Shimmer Gloss. I’m not really a huge fan of lip gloss; but this one had me surprised..
These lip glosses taste like honey (the real deal!) and have a moisturizing & plumping effect. These won’t enlarge your lips crazily, but the effect (mainly thanks to gloss & shimmer) is there. When applied it leaves a tingly feeling that’ll last a good fifteen/twenty minutes. The holding power of these honey flavoured glosses is pretty good for this type of product; I’d say it’ll last a good three hours before you need to reapply. The applicator is HUGE, which is surprisingly handy (I initially thought it wouldn’t be.. but it is).
What I like most about the glosses is the perfect type of shimmer: it’s not too visible (well except for Boosted Beige Nude which has a very in-your-face shimmer), but still adds a lovely extra dimension to your lips. Supercharged Strawberry adds a lovely pop of colour to the lips and is probably the most pigmented of the four I got to try. Revved Up Rose Gold and Magnified Mauve are of the “my lips but way better”-kind, which I’ll probably use most of all. And I really feel like I need to repeat myself here… They’re not immensely sticky! It’s okay to wear your hair down when wearing these glosses.. Homerun!
