Name: Miracle Gloss in n.2 & n.5
From Layla’s website:
A longlasting texture, a product that gives volume to lips. You’ll feel your lips hydrated and see them turning into an ocean of light.
What I liked:
– 8 beautiful shades to choose from
– very pigmented
– quite moisturizing
– very shiny finish
– not sticky
– longlasting for a lip product
– lovely scent
What I didn’t like:
– if you have dry lip lips, wearing a lip balm underneath is necessary
– bulky packaging
– the price
Layla Cosmetics has recently released a new line of lipglosses called Miracle Gloss. With a name like that, these glosses have a lot to live up to, and after trying two of the eight shades available, I have to say they don’t disappoint at all.
N.2, my favourite shade of the two, is a bright and intense fuchsia with tiny little shimmers that make lips sparkle. It is very pigmented and one swipe is enough to achieve opaque coverage that will last for a few hours.
N.5 is a very wearable and much easier shade to pull off than n.2. It is a coral-nude shade that is also very pigmented and only requires one coat for great color payoff. Unlike n.2, this shade doesn’t contain shimmers nor glitters, but it is still very shiny.
Both glosses are very pigmented and have a lovely texture. The consistency is not-sticky and quite creamy so, unless you have dry lips, you can easily skip a lip balm with these as they are quite hydrating on their own. And because they are very shiny, they make your lips appear bigger and plumper. In addition, both glosses are quite longlasting. Unless I eat or drink, they stay put for about 4/5 hours before I need to retouch them!
Instead, I’m not too keen on the packaging. The gold cap is supposed to represent a gold nugget, but overall I find the whole tube too big and bulky and not that practical to carry around in your purse. But at least, considering how longlasting they are, you won’t really need to bring them along with you unless you’re out for the entire day.
As for the price, I do think that €15.00 is not that cheap for a lipgloss. Still, that won’t put me off buying one or more shades because it’s not often you come across such pigmented and longlasting glosses that feel comfortable on the lips. I think that, overall, they are worth the price and if you find a shade you like, I highly recommend them.

Layla Miracle Gloss in n.2 & n.5 are very pigmented and shiny glosses that offer opaque coverage in just one swipe while giving the illusion of plumper lips. Creamy and not-sticky, they last about 4 or 5 hours on the lips if you don’t eat nor drink. However, the packaging is bulky and the price not that cheap.
