From Senna’s website:
This moist and smooth vanilla flavored lipgloss formula applies high shine and color.
What I liked:
– buildable colour payoff

– creamy texture, glides on smoothly and feels comfortable on the lips
– excellent staying power
– lovely vanilla scent
– elegant packaging
What I didn’t like:
– they’re sticky
Let’s get the sticky out of the way first. Senna Lip Lacquers are sticky. Not too much, but enough to put off ladies who can’t stand even the tiniest hint of stickiness. Me? I love it. You see, it’s the stickiness that makes a lipgloss last, and if I have to put up with that to avoid reapplying it every couple of hours, I gladly will.
Senna Lip Lacquers last for hours on the lips and disappear only after you’ve had a proper meal. That’s why I love to use them on those days when I’m out of the house from morning till night. I just swipe a Lip Lacquer on and forget all about it, safe in the knowledge that it’s still as pretty and intact as when I applied it in the morning. And, after lunch, I’ll go to the toilet and retouch it, knowing it’ll stay put till dinner. Isn’t that worth a little stickiness, ladies?
For summer, Senna has released two new shades, Bonfire and Sunstone. Bonfire is my favourite. Described as a “blood orange shine”, it is a bright reddish orange shade with a shiny cream finish (so no shimmers). One swipe will cover your lips in a layer of translucent and wearable colour, but of course you can always build it up for a more intense, fiery look.
Sunstone, instead, is a sheer golden amber shade infused with shimmers. Used alone, it provides just a subtle and warm hint of colour with a very sparkling finish. However, I prefer to use it on top of other cream glosses or lipsticks. After applying my lip colour, I’ll just dab a touch of Sunstone at the center of my lips to add some dimension and luminosity.
The texture of both glosses is very creamy and glides on the lips smoothly. Although not particularly moisturizing, they feel comfortable on the lips and don’t dry them out. Overall, I love these glosses. The colours are summery and beautifully enhance a tan. And because you need little for each application (and won’t have to retouch them often), they’re gonna last you forever.
