L'Oreal Paris Glam Matte Intense Gloss
I bought this mainly because it was such an interesting concept. The applicator is heart shaped, wider than a normal lipgloss which allows you to spread over the entire lip without streaks. the end is also really pointed to allow you to be precise around the cupids bow. The formula comes out like a thick cream and if you imagine the appearance of a coloured cream, thats what these are like, not 100% matte but certainly not a gloss. I would say these are more accurately described as liquid lipstick. the colours are very bold and started to bleed on me within half an hour so you'd be better to wear lip liner. wear time wasnt great as these dont dry down, rather they stay creamy so slip about a lot. they also felt very sticky on my lips. The colours however were bright and very opaque which was great. Overall although these were an interesting idea I found them far too messy and short lasting, the quality is not on a par with the rest of the brands products. If you are looking for something like this try the bourjois rouge edition velvets, they dry down to a wonderful long lasting matte and come in a much wider range of colours, a great alternative in my opinion.

Excellent vibrant pink colour with a super texture. Not too slippy, not too matte. Lovely lipgloss.

Not matte, not red
On the website, the colour circle supposedly depicting the colour Cherry Pop was red, when I received the gloss, it said Cherry Pop. But was most definitely not red. It was in fact hot pink, almost exactly the same shade as one I already owned. Also, it is really not matte. It is in fact more like a dull gloss, and still shiny. Feels nice on the lips, but not what I was led to believe it would be.
