L'Oreal Glossy Balms (2 Shades) - Photos, Swatches, and Review

June 20, 2014

Today I have photos and swatches of a few new L'Oreal Lip Balm Crayons. I found these recently at CVS and was excite to try them out. I love lip crayons since they are easy to apply and great for everyday use. The two shades I have are Vintage Rose and Ginger Candy. See the swatches and my thoughts on these below!

The packaging is like other lip crayons, where you can twist it up on the bottom of the tube. The two shades that I picked have nice color to them and they feel really comfortable on. Do these have the L’Oreal strong smell that other L’Oreal lip products have? Luckily, no! They don’t really have any kind of scent and I prefer it that way. Seriously, the smell before was so bad I hardly ever reach for my L’Oreal lip products. But at least with these I know I can wear them and not worry about that.

Vintage Rose is my new favorite everyday lip shade. There is just enough pigmentation to see I have a lip color on, but not too bold or bright where I feel uncomfortable. The swatch above make it look like there is no color, but on the lips you can see a difference. They do have a glossy finish and they lasted for about 3-4 hours until I needed to reapply. Ginger candy was a little different and not quite as glossy. The shade was light for me but I can layer over a lipstick or another balm and make it work. 

If you are looking for a lip product that is easy to apply, has good pigmentation, and something that you can wear everyday, these are for you. These aren't crazy pigmented, but sometimes that's okay and I prefer these right now for summer. 

Recommend? Yes, and I would definitely buy more shades. Since they are a bit expensive, I would wait until these go on sale so you can get a better discount and save. I used extra bucks at CVS so I ended up paying $8 for both.

L'Oreal Glossy Balm Crayons retail for $8.49 each and can be found at CVS or other drugstores that carry L'Oreal.
