Skin Type:: Combination
I was quite disappointed with this product, especially for such a highly priced one. Although the packaging is lovely and it smells lovely it just kind of sits on your lips and doesn't feel particularly moisturising, the colour was also so subtle that I couldn't see much of a difference. It feels luxurious to put on though after a pampering bath (even if it doesn't really last long) Maybe would work as an extra bit of gloss on top of lipstick?
Skin Type:: Normal / Balanced
I really wanted to love this as much as I love some Votary products. Firstly, I just don’t think lip oils are for me and I wouldn’t go for one again. You need to re-apply very often and I didn’t actually find it did much for my lips. I tend to have dry lips and once the oil had absorbed, they remained dry. I get the appeal of an oil over a gloss as there’s less stickiness, but I prefer a tinted balm (can’t beat BB lip tint). This has a nice colour when on and smells great, but did not do the job for me. Perhaps worst of all, is how the product leaks out of the lid, no matter how tightly screwed on. I was horrified to find it very greasy and oily on the outside of the bottle several times - there’s no way I’m subjecting my gorgeous handbags to that! So sadly it’s now largely unused as I can’t even take it anywhere.
Good lip gloss but no blush
Slightly disappointed as was expecting some natural tinted blush but it's only a good gloss for the lips. It doesn't stay on long and doesn't tint at all. Love the light glossy effect of it on my lips but not worth the price for what it promises to be
This is very similar to the original Votary lip oil but with the addition of a light raspberry- shaded tint. It has an oil texture, rather than a sticky gloss, which means that it does not have much longevity and you need to reapply quite frequently throughout the day
Recommends this product: Yes
It's not like an average lip gloss, very moisturizing, but not sticky nd goopy. Lovely, flattering and universal shade. I like the packaging and wand, the scent. I'll be getting a second one as I already used half in a month as I apply it before bedtime like a lip balm!
