Review and Swatches: Max Factor Vibrant Curve Effect lip gloss in shade Majeste 14

I thought I'd review a lippie which I absolutely dont use and kinda rather dislike also.. Just as a favor to all nice ladies out there.. :)

This is a gift I received when I did my wedding makeup shopping and I didnt bother to check the proverbial gift horse in the mouth, so I just got this and took it home and found that this is just good as nothing!

I thought this would be a good addition to my nude lippie collection as the color showed to be a promising nudish brown color. The lipgloss is packaged very unattractively in a boring plastic casing! Cannot believe an international brand goes for such poor packaging!

Since this was a freebie, I got a mini version of the original lip gloss. The writings are quite faded but there was no ingredients marked and I have not much clue on the price as well. However the full sized version is available online and I guess is around 500INR.

The wand applicator is quite soft and it is easy to spread the color around. The problem is with the product itself. It has a melon-ish scent which is somehow a bit repulsive as I am reminded of a decaying watermelon which I had unfortunately smelled.. :(

The gloss itself is an easily spreading shimmery liquid. On the plus side, the shimmer is not very garish, the color is a soft nude brown that looks good for day wear.

On the minus side, this gloss doesnt stay long, doesnt give much of a glossy effect, the color on lips looks too cheap for a gloss that is supposed to be on the expensive side and overall, I totally dislike this gloss.

Nothing more to add on this, gals, if you wanna buy a gloss, go for Bourjois, Revlon, Lotus, Inglot..lotsa options there, but better not risk with this one!
