Lavshuca Color Conc Rouge Review
Lavshuca introduced several colors of it's newest gloss, Color Conc Rogue, for it's Fall 2007 Collection (I googled pictures of the newest collection but all I get are some weird model advertising Lavshuca who is this girl and where's Puffy damnit!)
I purchased four of the ten colors. When I first got wind of these I was over the moon because hey I love gloss! Gloss is good. Gloss is nice. Gloss makes me (and my lips) happy! Um..ya..anyway....At the time I was seriously going to go ahead and purchase all ten of the colors because we established already I'm that kinda diseased about cosmetics ;)
I'm glad I went with four because I have to give Color Conc Rouge a bit of a bad review! Sad sighs all around!
I've tried to love this, I've tried to even like it. I've used two of the four colors so far and they just don't do anything for me! It's sadly lacking any "wow"!
The general idea of the gloss is it's supposed to act as a lipstick and a gloss all in one but that sadly doesn't really work. The texture is like any gloss you might have about. It's pretty thick, pretty slick but it doesn't glide. The glide is non existent (if you know gloss you know what I mean). I'm trying to firgure out exactly why it has no glide, I'm not entirely sure if it's the actual gloss or the applicator! The applicator is just a hard plastic piece with no sponge at the end so you are basically trying to apply gloss using the end of a tiny, hard piece of plastic! The gloss it self feels ok on, not tacky and not too sticky but just about right. However, it has no lasting power. Application may last you 30 minutes if you're lucky! Again, as almost all Japanese brands, it's unflavored! Overall it's just sadly lacking!
On the plus side the packaging is adorable which is cause for some excitement but the actual product inside leaves much to be desired! The colors are quite gorgeous but what's color if it doesn't apply correctly.
Lavshuca has some hit or miss products and this is sadly a miss for me! Of course I'm happy to have these in my collection but I can only offer it an ok rating.
Save your pennies, buy something else!
