We all know Mavala for their iconic 5ml nail polishes, but how many of us knew they did makeup? I was definitely out of the loop until I heard about their Sugar Free Lip Gloss* collection of six candy hued lip glosses. I think when a brand like Mavala is well known for a particular thing, its best to just stick to it and do it well however after having a play around with the lip glosses I’m so all over Strawberry and Blackcurrant that I’m going to need Mavala to bring out some more shades.
First things first, these lip glosses pass the No Stickiness Test – a lip gloss can be made from diamonds for all I care, but it won’t be touching my lips if it’s sticky. Now that’s one box ticked, the others? Lip gloss applies like a dream, tiny particles of Mother of Pearl for shimmer to give that ‘wet look’, vanilla scent so good you might eat it, perfect juxtaposition of sheer and bright and there’s also free radical fighting vitamin E and nourishing grape seed oil thrown in for good measure. As far as I’m concerned, Blackcurrant is on my short list of the best lip glosses, but for £10.25 I’d feel slightly guilty handing over the cash however it’s definitely worth it so my guilt would quickly disappear.
