I’m trying to figure out what L’Oreal HIP is trying to accomplish with the little hangy hook thing on their Color Presso Gloss. Like…are you supposed to snap it on your keys? Where’s it supposed to hang? What’s the point? They have this really awesome gloss with some weird, obscure packaging going on….FAIL.
Jump ahead to hear me rave, rant, and moan about L’Oreal HIP Color Presso Gloss.
Dudes, I totally dig this gloss but it needs so much work packaging wise. You know it’s saying something when I actually LIKE a drugstore gloss right?
Here’s the good news.
The is awesome, seriously, go try it. It has a faint MAC-like vanilla taste going on but it’s much sweeter so the taste is pleasant to me. The formula is highly glossy, very comfortable on my lips, and awesomely pigmented. I love, love, love it. It glides on very lightly but still has a nice pop of yummy color. The finish is beautiful, very glossy, it’s gorgeous that’s pretty much all you need to know. Seriously, I like this stuff alot.
Packaging is so wicked bad. First of all it’s a dual chamber package which allows two shades of color to be distrubed at the same time or I guess if you really want to get technical one shade at a time but kids, don’t try it, you’ll so lose an arm trying to figure out how to get one side of gloss to slide out while keeping the other one inside. For the longest time I was trying to separate the two chambers as the packaging seems to hint that this can be done, but nope not possible. Secondly, getting the gloss to flow properly is a little bit of a problem as well as it’ll squeeze out but slip back into the tube quickly, kinda a cat and mouse game. And finally I’ve no idea why they thought a hook or a little hanging whatcamacallit was a good idea. I dunno I guess they thought this would be fab to tote around on your keys?
Colors I tried were Chic and Classy which by the way they need to improve on as well, not nearly enough shades in this fabulous gloss, need more selection guys please. Chic is my fav as it’s made up of a peach and a ruby peach shade of gloss, combined the effect gives you a nice slick of deep grapefruit pink gloss. Classy is made up of a sheer lilac pink gloss and a deeper shade of dusky pink, combined it creates a nice elegant pink on my lips. Below I’m wearing Chic on my lips, absolutely love how gorgeous it is, mind you this is the full color of the gloss, no stain or lipstick under it.
Overall, they have a seriously awesome gloss on their hands here. Absolutely love it and deem it worthy of a pick up but just try to not fling it across the room when you become as irritated and frustrated with the packaging as I did.
Loves it but L’Oreal work on the packaging k?
Anyone try these?
Really wanting to hear thoughts on it!
