I have been trying to catch up with my weekly blog posts and thats more to do with whats happening behind the scenes. I cannot wait to share the big news with you guys pretty soon and pace up my blog posts. Its always amazing to find time and pen down posts that have been on my mind for so long.
On my recent trip from Dubai to Muscat, the most exciting part of the journey or the travel experience was the haul at the Dubai Duty Free. It is a make up lover’s paradise after Sephora with great discounts on offer almost all year around and if you slightly give in you are in for a big time splurge. Well, now that I have not been travelling too much, I do not mind the makeup splurge at all… or even otherwise :D! Makeup anytime!!!
Packaging: First up, let’s address the packaging – Gucci Sensuous Deep-Matte Lipstick totally nailed the Gucci lipstick range with its styling and packaging. Luxurious in every sense of the word, chic and definitely something I trip on each time I hold, feel and use it. The logo that is embedded on the top part is absolutely stunning. One for the luxury stash on my dresser! The lipstick comes in a cylindrical, sleek and a classy casing. Unlike the regular lippies on the cosmetic counters. The closure is intact and great for that evening out or even travel as if won’t take up much space in your travel kit.
Application/Texture: It did not take me a lot of convincing to go ahead with the purchase as the 1st swatch and application was mere perfection. I was totally amazed with the formula that is semi-matte yet smooth, creamy and buildable. The application glides on well and is absolutely effortless. It does tend to hold on to a dry patch, so try moisturizing dehydrated or very dry lips. Oh, and yes it does have that very subtle luxurious scent.
Longevity: It lasts for about 3-4 hours but requires a touch up after a meal or before you head in for your meet up/event. High maintenance and designer labels do require that extra bit of care and we don’t mind :)!
Overall, I absolutely love the range and I cannot wait to get my hands on a couple more. No regrets at all and If matte finish with a creamy combo is your thing then this definitely will be up your alley!! I would love to hear from you on your experience with the Gucci makeup range.
