So recently, a new trend has take up all over my facebook and instagram feed. ‘Peel-off lipgloss’ or ‘Peel-off lipstains’ are becoming very famous amongst us. With the likes of Huda Beauty and various other magazine editors trying these ‘stains’ out, I thought about giving them a go too! So let’s see what the hype is all about! 😀
Each lip gloss is a small tube containing 15g of product in it. There are about 6 shades in each pack of lip gloss. The product claims to leave a stain on your lips that will not go off despite eating, and will last up to 24 hours. Shades included are:
- Rose Pink
- Rose Red
- Cherry Red
- Rose Breen
Vitamin E, Rose Hip Oil, Aloe Essence, Natural Fruit Essence, Polybutylene, Fruit Wax, Synthetic Agents/Colorants ( Cl 77891, Cl 77491, Cl 77499, Cl 19140, Cl 15985, Cl 15850) and Tin Oxide.
How to Use:
The Box shows a 3-step process for using this lip-gloss:
- Apply a thick layer on your lips, without going out the natural outline.
- Let it dry for 5-10 minutes
- Peel it off and apply a clear lip-gloss on top.
I was very excited to try out this new trend. This peel-off gloss gives you a slight tint and is inspired by Korean beauty trends of getting a just-ate-an-ice-lolly type gradient tint to the lips. The result is a beautiful, natural looking stain.
The entire range of ADS Peel-off lipgloss has different varieties of colour, from orange to pink and then to red. The lighter colours (Watermelon, Strawberry) don’t show up as much on my skin compared to the darker ones (Rose breen, Cherry Red).
Whoever claimed it to be a 24 hours lasting tint was really wrong. At maximum, it can last up to 4-5 hours, and can not stand food at all! It is wudhu friendly also for those concerned.
As much as i loved the initial stain, I have to admit it is a rather messy one. Both application and removal is far from being easy or neat. Your hands get messy, you get the stain on your nails quite easily too!
If you want to try it out, make sure to follow these tips as I learned from my experience:
- Moisturize your lips before application
- Use a nice flat-brush to apply
- Dry for 15 minutes, or wait until it is COMPLETELY dry
- After removing, apply a lip balm
- If you get the stain anywhere outside your lips, use a moisturizer to remove
- Wash your hands with soap to remove the stain
Summing it up,
What’s to LIKE:
- A natural looking lip tint
- An affordable lip gloss
- Colour range is good
What’s NOT to Like:
- Stain is not very long lasting
- Messy application
- MAY dry out lips
- Takes time drying
- Not a fast method
Price & Availability:
These lip glosses (Individual and pack) are being sold by various online pages. I got mine for PKR 1000 for a box containing 6 lip gloss.
