Hello my dearest friends!!
Hope you had a fabulous start to the new year. I definitely had. In this new year 2018, I have decided to come out of my comfort zone and try out new things. Things that I normally never do or use. So here I am, reviewing a lipgloss that I recently purchased. What’s ‘new’ about a lipgloss? Well…it so happens that I’m not a fan of lipglosses. You can call me a lipstick person but I stay away from glosses. No specific reasons as such, but I have a preference for good old lipsticks. So buying MANHATTAN HIGH SHINE LIPGLOSS in shade 45T- POPPY RED was more of an impulse buy for me because:
- I love MANHATTAN COSMETICS products
- The color was absolutely gorgeous
- The collection was a new launch
- It was priced a just € 2.45 which is really cheap
Dm stores lately. Every time I go there, I find something awesome. And this is where I realized my new found love for lipglosses. 😉I#ve been spending a lot of my time at
Well as most lipglosses go, these too come in long cylindrical vials. I really wish MANHATTAN starts putting protective plastic films on their products, just to ensure that the product has not been previously opened and used (which happens a lot in most drug stores). Apart from that the packaging is pretty much standard. It comes with an applicator brush which I sadly didn’t like much. It was too thin and small for my taste. I prefer having amply thick brush for generous and smooth application of products. In all, the gloss looked attractive on the store racks.

The shade 45T is shimmery red in color which looks extremely beautiful both during day and night. The product has an even consistency and is easy to glide. It gives a sparkly finish with stays put even after 4 hours. The one reason I don’t prefer glosses is that they are sticky which I absolutely dislike. But Manhattan High Shine was not sticky atall which I really liked. The gloss transfer a little though as evidenced by my baby’s stained cheeks(I love kissing her chubby cheeks 😀 ). It also has a pleasant fruity smell which I liked. A very good shade which looks good on all skin tones.
The formula used is translucent so if you have pigmented lips it might not look too even. To combat this problem apply a thin layer of your everyday foundation and then apply this gloss. let is settle and then apply a second layer. This will given a much better coverage. To make the gloss last longer, first apply a thin layer of your compact powder and then top it will your lip gloss.
