Natio Rich Colour Creme Gloss - Passion
A a lover of red lips, I figured I should try out a red lipgloss. However, this wasn't the perfect pick up and I'll have to keep searching.
The packaging is quite plain, a clear tube to see the colour and a doe-foot applicator.
This lipgloss is the perfect colour. It's a blue based red, almost like raspberry juice. It has some blue/purple duochrome sparkles but they don't appear apparent on the lips nor are they grainy.
The formula is a medium consistency and not sticky at all. However it smells and tastes terrible. To me it tastes like plastic, maybe my lips are too close to my nose, but I literally cannot stand it. :/ I took it right off after I swatched it on my lips.
The reason why I dislike this gloss is mainly because of how it photographs. As you can see in the bottom two photographs, flash seems to go right through all the pigment, leaving it looking blotchy and terrible on the lips. It looks a lot smoother without flash (the top photo). The way it looks without flash is how it looks to the ordinary eye. I really wouldn't recommend wearing it if you're planning to get photographed though.
All in all, I really do think that you can find much better glosses with similar colours. I personally wouldn't obtain another gloss in this series. The colours aren't terribly unique and the smell is really off-putting to me.
