Road Test: Fleur de Force Lipgloss

Fleur de Force's lipglosses cost £6.99 are available at which is linked at the end of this post. At the time of writing they are available for £2.10 which is a great price for any lip product. I didn't own a single lipgloss until very recently and am unsure of my ability to rock a shiny lip look, so I restrained myself and only purchased one shade. With Autumn and Winter in mind I chose Starry, Starry Night which looks beautiful in the packaging. There is also red shade in this range, and four pinky mauve colours to choose from.
First Impressions: The design of this is so tempting, with Fleur's name and delicate stars across the tube. It has a doe foot applicator which picks up a perfect amount of product and is highly fragranced with a sweet, chocolate scent. I was surprised at the very sticky consistency, but with that stickiness I did feel a reassurance that the product would cling to the lips rather than smearing around my face. Because it is tacky, the gloss took a few moments to apply carefully.

I am thrilled with this colour, it looks opaque, super glossy and perfect for the months ahead. The scent fades on application.
Cup of Coffee Test: There was some transfer onto my cup, but plenty of product stayed on the lips through drinking.
After drinking.

After Food: I was seriously impressed with how well this lasted through eating. After all, it doesn't claim to be anything other than an ordinary gloss. I ate messy pizza with salad, and my lips still had shiny colour on afterwards.

Overall: This is a thick, opaque, long-lasting gloss. It is very comfortable to wear and the high-shine finish gives a full, plumping effect to the lips. For the current price of less than £3 these are an absolute bargain, with pretty packaging, wearable colours and a moisturising formula. You could layer these over a favourite lipstick, but they are pigmented enough to wear alone. In fact, they slightly stain the lips so the colour lasts extremely well.
Lips slightly stained when gloss removed with a tissue.

As a newcomer to lipgloss I am impressed, and tempted to try some of the pink shades available. The glossy red would also be a fantastic purchase for the Christmas season.
Thanks for reading as always, I love sharing these gorgeous products with you.
