L’Oreal- Kiss-Proof Ultra Glossy
Livia’s Summary: I must start by saying I’m not a big fan of long last lipsticks as they always dry my lips out so much that I end up with chapped lips. Not so with this one. The lipstick does glide on very smoothly and although it does dry in about a minute it doesn’t make your lips prunish. Then you apply the gloss and it is immediately comfortable. I tried this lipstick in a variety of situations including a buffet dinner with friends who all commented at the end of the dinner that my lips look untouched. I was very impressed and they are on their way to buy it for themselves. The range has a great variety of colours to suit everyone.
Description: Traditionally, women who opt for an extreme hold, long-lasting lipstick have to make the trade-off of having a matte finish lipcolour. To challenge this, L’Oreal Paris has created Kiss Proof Ultra Glossy – an easy-to-apply two-step lipcolour which guarantees up to 12 hours of ultra-glossy, comfortable colour. The L’Oreal Paris laboratories have created a unique gloss formula which is perfectly compatible with the tattoo-effect base colour. Hence, with this unique technology, you can now layer the gloss on top of the lipstick without the underlying lipstick feathering and becoming uneven.
Step one: Kiss Proof’s extreme hold is guaranteed by L’Oreal-patented non-transfer technology that delivers lasting hold. On application, the lipstick melts onto your lips and forms a film that becomes one with the lips.
Step Two: The silicon based gloss forms a protective barrier against dryness maintaining lip hydration for up to 12 hours.

Value for Money: Yes, I’m sold on this product. I will definitely buy this again.
Comments: I loved this product & so did my husband as he can kiss me & it doesn’t come off! The two-step application is easy to do and you actually save on lipstick as you only apply that once and then you just have to follow up whenever you want on the gloss. Can’t wait to try the rest of the colour range. Loved it!
Skin Type: Oily Skin.
Value for Money: This is a good price to pay for a long-lasting lipstick. I have tried a lipstick that is very similar in quality that is over $40.00.
Comments: This is a very long-lasting lipstick. It stayed on through breakfast, lunch and dinner, but you will need to re-apply the gloss part, three to four times through the day. Usually this type of long-lasting lipstick would start to gradually peel off, looking quite unattractive after about five hours, but I found this one would just slightly fade away, which is a much better look.
Skin Type:Oily Skin.
Value for Money: Great value for money.
Comments: This lipstick lasted for 6hrs straight, after eating and drinking and the colours were a great vibrant colour without being “loud”.
Skin Type: Combination Skin
Value for Money: At $29.95, I would say this is a terrible product for me and definitely not worth its price tag.
Comments: I’m usually a gloss wearer so I thought the idea of lipstick + gloss is quite interesting. I was very disappointed after trying this product. The lipstick did not ‘melt on my lips’ as it claimed and was in fact extremely difficult to apply – it did not just ‘glide on’ my lips like normal lipstick. I understand this is probably due to the fact that it needs to be an ‘extreme hold’ film. The gloss is actually quite shiny and long lasting and I quite like the finish. However, neither the lipstick nor the gloss survived my lunch.
Skin Type:Normal Skin.
Value for Money: Fantastic. On my permanent shopping list.
Comments: It’s true. It is kiss proof. The lipstick colour stays put through all the eating and drinking of the day. You just have to reapply the gloss, which is easy, as you don’t need a mirror for that. LOVED it!
Pros: Long lasting colour, not overly drying
Cons: May not work for everyone
