Lancome Lip Lover ($23) is “an intense lip color that hydrates and gives lips dewy, non-sticky shine”. This is another one of those “not lipstick” glosses that is supposed to perform like a lipstick. This is actually a little sample size that I got from Sephora some time ago. I finally took it out to wear it, and I really like it!
Framboise Etoile is described as a “berry pink”. It reminds me of a bright and vibrant watermelon. As you can see on the applicator, it is very glossy! The applicator is pretty standard for gloss and comes to a rounded point (oxymoron??).
Lip Lover is very comfortable to wear. It’s moisturizing and not sticky, but it has a lot of lasting power for a gloss. Some may find this too heavy- I definitely notice it when I have it on. One thing I love about this gloss is that it is NOT drying! If you have dry lips, you will probably like Lip Lover. It has a slight floral scent, but I don’t notice it unless I put the tube right up to my nose; I definitely didn’t notice it on the lips, but if you’re sensitive to scents you may want to check this out in store.
I didn’t experience any problems with this transferring, and it fades away in an even manner without looking splotchy. My favorite part about Lip Lover is how GLOSSY it is. Some glosses look so vibrant in advertisements and are total duds on the lips (Maybelline is so good at this), but this actually looks fantastic while wearing it. I would like to try more of the Lip Lover line!
