I was going through my stash a few days ago and stumbled on one of my favourite glosses that for some reason I’ve been neglecting for a while (me thinks I have too many lip products and it’s time to declutter). It’s Silkygirl Moisture Gloss in Sweet Pink and I’ve been wearing it a lot since I lately rediscovered it. Really, you can find some awesome things when you just shop your stash.
Sweet Pink is a beautiful pink shade infused with shimmers. Although quite sheer, it has enough pigment for the color to show up (but in a subtle way) while the shimmers make your pout sparkle and shine, but not too much. The result is very natural and wearable. The texture isn’t sticky at all and it feels very comfortable on the lips. I wouldn’t really say that the texture is moisturizing, but it doesn’t dry my lips either.
Staying power is just average. It lasts about 2 hours on my lips and, of course, it disappears when you drink or have a bite to eat, so you will have to reapply it throughout the day. But the gloss is easy to carry around in your purse with you and the packaging quite pretty. Granted, it’s not as chic as Chanel or Estee Lauder lipsticks, but it doesn’t look cheap either.
At the moment Silkygirl products are available only in very few Asian countries but if you manage to find them and want a nice, shimmery gloss that doesn’t break the bank, do check it out. I think it retails at under MYR10, but I got it through a swap so I don’t know the exact price. Please, let me know if you do.
Available at: pharmacies in Malaysia and Singapore
