Last week I talked about Senna Sparkling Lip Lacquers, which are beautiful, sheer and very shimmery glosses. But while I liked them, I didn’t love them. But I do love another lip gloss I had the chance to try from Senna called Pearl Glow Lip Lacquer.

Available in 13 shades, the Pearl Glow glosses have a lot in common with their Sparkling cousins. They also have a lovely vanilla scent and a thick texture that feels a bit sticky on the lips.

I’m not a fan of very sticky glosses but I don’t mind this one too much especially because it lasts quite long for a lipgloss. The color stays put for hours and didn’t go away even after I had a bite to eat and some water. I only needed to reapply it after a proper meal.

But the reasons why I prefer Pearl Glow over Sparkling are the finish and color payoff. The shade I have is called Sunkiss and is a peachy pink with a pearly metallic finish that gives lips a very pretty glow.

It is also more pigmented than the Sparkling glosses I have which offer just a hint of color. Pearl Glow gloss is on the sheer side too but it shows up much better on my lips and gives them that my-lips-but-better look.

Overall, I love Senna Pearl Glow Lip Lacquers. Available in lots of shades, they are decently pigmented, have a pearly metallic sheen and last for hours. However, they are a bit on the pricey side and feel slightly sticky.

Rating: 4/5

    Dao, I really love the color. I hate sticky glosses but this is not overly sticky so I can put with it. :)

    Anna, both the color and the scent are lovely. And I hate it when that happens too! Luckily that hasn’t happened yet with this gloss as it isn’t very sticky.
