Stop whatever you are doing now and listen to me: there is a new lipstick around and it's bloody good!

If you loved the Bourjois Rouge Velvet, you are gonna adore the new liquid lipsticks (told you this is the year of the lipsticks) launched few weeks ago by L'oreal Paris.

The L'oreal glam matte is heaven on earth if you like bright, matte, resistent lipstick.

As the Bourjois ones, this is a kind of hybrid in between a lipstick, a lipgloss and lipstain.

It applies smoothly with an even consistency on the lips without resulting strikey or sticky.

At first, the result is quite glossy and soft that it really gives you the sensation of wearing a lipgloss but very slowly dries out to a beautiful matte texture without any flake or patches all around, gives that feeling that you are not wearing anything on your lips and then you look in the mirror and Surprise, lipstick is still there!

It does have a sponge doe foot applicator and comes in 4 shades (but I don't understand why on the L'oreal official website there are only 3) all on the red and pink tones.

I swatched all in Superdrug (that has got at the moment a very convenient 3x2) and decided to go for the bright cherry pink, number 510 Cherry Crop.


It's a deep reddish pink and as all the glam matte is highly pigmented. I am enjoing applying two coats, the brightest the better!

Here are some swatches for you.

As I told you at the beginning of the post, I prefer this to the Velvet Matte in terms of application, consistency and long-time effect: the shade stays vibrant without fading for a long time (you will probably forget it's still there!).

The Glam matte are available in Boots, Superdrug and are priced £7.99 (you don't know the temptation I have got to come back in store and buy them all!!!)

Now I kiss you all good night and I'll speak to you soon!
