If you don’t like glittery lip products, you can stop reading now. But if you’re like me and love sparkling lips, then I think you’re gonna love Layla Glitter in Gloss. Available in six shades, from silver to gold, from pinks to reds, these babies will definitely get your pout noticed. I’ve been playing with two of the shades, n.1 and n.6, for a while now and it’s finally time to tell you all about them.
N.1 is a clear white gloss infused with multi-colored glitter. It is my favourite of the two as it is very versatile. It can be used on its own like you can see in the swatch above for a simple, icy and shimmery look or on top of any lipstick you want to add a sparkling touch to your lips. And it’s so easy to apply too.
N.6 is a harder shade to wear but still beautiful. It is a deep bourdeaux red chock full of tiny red glitters. This is harder to apply because, as the color is darker, you need to be very precise with application (as you can see in the swatch, I wasn’t so sorry for that). However, I think this is true for all dark lip products so it’s not really a flaw of this gloss. It has a good color payoff when used on its own or you can pair with a red lipstick to make it sparkle and shine.
The glitters in these glosses are tiny and fine so you don’t have to worry about having huge chunks of glitters on your lips. As for the texture, sadly that’s not very moisturizing, so prep your lips with a lip balm beforehand. It is also barely, barely sticky so it feels comfortable on but still allows the gloss to last for more than 4 hours on me! That’s a great achievement for a gloss in my opinion.
The gloss is packaged in a long, sleek and see-through tube so you can see how much is still left in it. In addition, it comes with a handy applicator. Instead than a sponge-tip, it has a little brush with synthetic bristles that allows an easy and smooth application. And what about the scent? Personally, I like it although not everyone will be a fan of it as it is very sweet. It disappears from the lips pretty soon though.

If you love glittery lipglosses, you’re gonna love Layla Glitter in Gloss. Chock-full of tiny glitters, these glosses will make your lips shine, sparkle and get noticed. They have a good color payoff, are just slightly sticky and last for hours. The brush applicator is also very handy. However, they aren’t moisturizing, the price is not that cheap for a gloss and some may find the scent too sweet.
