Olivia Hale Lipgloss – Review

Hi Chics!

I’ve never been a fan of lip gloss as you may have read in my previous posts, simply because of the stickiness that I thought all glosses had but after getting the Max Factor lip gloss the other day my opinion changed and definitely for the better as I have just bought another one!

This one is not so much a known brand it is by Olivia Hale and I got this for £1 (I’ve even forgotten where), I wanted to see if cheaper lip glosses were also really sticky and my worst nightmare! I’m always looking for cheaper alternatives because why pay more?

My first impressions of this lipgloss was pretty standard, the packaging wasn’t a wow factor but it also isn’t awful. You can see the colour of the lipgloss through the plastic which I like because you can judge what it’s going to look like on your lips. Whereas, some packages where it gives you a strip of colour and you have to guess what it’s going to look like on your lips. When I opened the lip up, it the usual applicator that normally comes with lip glosses which makes it a lot easier to apply so I really liked that. It left quite a lot of product over the stick and wand, which looked like it was going to be hard to spread it evenly over my lips.

When I put this on my lips, I realised that it was quite sticky and thick which is really not the consistency that I like but I gave it the benefit of the doubt and I carried on trying it out. The pigment isn’t strong but you can easily build it up with the exception of it feeling thicker on your lips. I also tried this over a lipstick to see what it would be like and I enjoyed the lipgloss a lot more, I didn’t have to put that much on over the top but it gave it a nice glow, there also wasn’t as much stickiness along with it.

  1. I hate lip glosses too! Because of the stickiness as well 🙂 but I would definitely recommend l’oreal lip glosses cause they’re the best I have tried so far. And this looks cool too! Should definitely try this one after reading your review!
