Review: L'Oreal Glossy Balm in Petite Plum

I love lipstick. I wear a lot of nudes, browns, nothing bolder than the occasional red. Lately, I find myself drawn to plum. Dark, mysterious, mesmerizing.What is it about the color that enchants me so? It's not my everyday kind of color. I rarely go to parties. I don't go to the mall often enough. I can't even remember the last time I went on a night out so come to think of it, I've really no excuse to wear one but just for tonight, I wore it special just for you guys *wink wink*

The products I used (applied in order):

Eyebrows: Etude Drawing Pencil No. 3  (My current favorite. I'm totally giving up my Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade *in Chocolate* and will instead be buying more of these pencils. Why? This pencil makes the most natural looking eyebrows ever! Just look at that arch. I find this pencil very handy for shaping and filling my eyebrows. I should know. I have really short brows!)

Moisturizer: Pond's Flawless White Brightening Night Cream (I got all Pond's products listed here from my March BDJ Box)

Naturactor Concealer Foundation No. 151
Pond's Flawless White Ultra Luminous Serum
Ellana Loose Foundation in Cafe Mocha
Ben Nye Banana Powder

Highlighter/Bronzer: Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow

Contour: TheBalm Bahama Mama

Blush: Ever Bilena Blush in Amethyst (my everyday blush)

And on my lips! :-) ....L'Oreal Glossy Balm in Petite Plum

Let me tell you why I LOVE this lip product

1 - I love the texture. It glides quite smoothly on the lips like it's made of butter.
2 - The color. It's not the darkest of plums, definitely wearable. Daytime and afternoons.
3 - Feels light. Not heavy on the lips at all.
4 - Very moisturizing on the lips so yes, two thumbs up.
5 - No scent. A big plus in my book.
6 - It's just the right amount of glossy, not overwhelming at all. I'd hate looking like I just had Chicken Adobo. There are lippies that make my lips look like I had exactly that for lunch. Haha.
7 - I love that it is shaped like it is. Like a crayon. It's handy to hold and really easy to apply.

Is there anything I don't like about the product?

The color payoff is great but it lasts only for an hour at the most, which means I will have to reapply if I want to keep my lips looking fresh like in the photo.

Buy again?  YES. I would love to try another color, maybe MLBB, something along that line.

This isn't the first plum lippie I have in my stash. I got two other plum shades I'll be showing you in the next couple of days and then right after that, I will be doing individual reviews of all the makeup products I have listed above, like a blog series, only better.

I hope that you enjoyed this post.

Until my next one! :-)
