Remember on Monday when I said I hoard lip products – I wasn’t lying. Despite only clearing out my makeup collection a couple of weeks back, I couldn’t resist picking up a tube of Pat McGrath’s Lust Gloss in Love Potion when I was down in London. I can’t even blame it on the excitement of visiting the Mothership (here), instead, I’ve accepted that I can’t resist a great nude lipgloss, so here we are.
Packaged in the brand’s signature Chucky, glossy tubes, the Lust Gloss feels like an absolute treat to use. The colour, truly feels like a Holy Grail for me. It’s beige enough to look cool and refined on, whilst the pink undertones prevents any sense of corpse lips (something I’m always afraid of when wearing a nude gloss). It even has a subtle golden shimmer running through the formula, which makes lips look plump and full.
The gloss itself is pretty much perfection. It feels smooth, and almost bouncy on the lips, and it applies like an absolute dream. With a subtle vanilla scent, it’s an absolute treat to use, and it feels like a real luxury product.
Wear time for the gloss is good – I easily get a few hours of wear per application, and feels really comfortable too!
