You know green is my favourite colour…but green lipgloss?! Has the world gone mad?!
I have been obsessed with the idea of green lipgloss for sometime, but I am aware that it has to be the right shade of green, with micro shimmers, not something matte or opaque – urgh.
I’ve had my eye on MAC’s Spring Bean Lustreglass for a while, which is a sheer green – it even has 4.2 on Makeupalley – however, you know what me and MAC sales assistants are like….we don’t click.
So there I was googling green lipglosses to see what would come up – I wanted a good quality gloss ya know, not something made for halloween or for 13 year olds.
Enter Dior Plastic Gloss in 304, Wildest Green.
A leafy green…
We have to think about the science of this (from someone who was crap at science) – green is a neutralizing shade…so technically, it should neutralize lip redness and leave with a nude, caramel shade?
As you can see with flash, the hints of green are apparent. Even so, its a beautiful, unusual nude shade.
The overall effect is the slightly hint of green with lots of nude goodness – with an extra layer, my lips turned a nude caramel and plumped up.
This wildest green I think is a Limited Edition but they are around on eBay where I bought mine for £14.00. This gloss is more pigmented and richer textured than MAC’s Spring Bean which is pictured here:
which is a sparklier, sheerer look – still pretty of course.
