I received my package from MakeupHOLICS two days ago. She was having a clearance sale on some of her items and these are what I really, really wanted to try. You can check her facebook page, items are still on sale as of this writing.
I waited for them 3 business days after my payment, my package arrived sealed in a bubble wrap. I'm not expecting for these lip-gloss to be broken while on shipment but at least they're still protected with something but they're no longer sealed maybe the reason they're on sale. I got the L'Oreal HIP Shine High Intensity Liquid Lipcolor in Arresting, Pretentious and Zealous. Each cost Php90 plus an additional Php90 for the shipping fee so I paid only Php360 for all of these. Imagine that? Just 90Php for a L'Oreal product? I was like "It's time to try them!".

I love how pigmented these lip-color are. I can wear them alone or on top of a lipstick. I tried wearing Pretentious on top of Zealous and still looks pretty. The consistency is thick but not sticky on the lips unlike the regular lip gloss. The tube has 8.2ml of product which will last me a long time. Let me add also that it smells great, it's like chocolate but not overpowering the smell will wear-off upon application on the lips. It's not drying and it doesn't make my lips dry. The downside is the shine will fade after an hour but the color will stay on the lips.
I don't think this is available on L'Oreal counters here in the Philippines so I would suggest you check your favorite online sellers, you won't regret buying these stuff, I did not.
So that's it for now. Have you tried these or any L'Oreal lip-gloss? Let me know what you're favorite lip-gloss is I might give it a try.
