I got these babies a couple of months ago. I’m surprised there aren’t enough swatches or reviews on this product. Despite a few cons, it is actually good for the price in my opinion. To begin with, they have absolutely no shimmer! It’s rare to find a drugstore lip gloss without all the shimmer-glimmer-sparkle.
Glossed SPF 15
Glossed are non-sticky, super-moisturising, enticingly scented glosses that impart a subtle hint of colour.
Available in 8 shades

|Sleek MakeUP Glossed in Rumour - on lips|
I got two of them. First up is Rumour which is gorgeous nude pink. This shade, if worn alone, imparts a subtle hint of color to the lips. It isn't fully opaque so I prefer wearing it over pink lippies to get that nudish-pink glossy pout. Second is Clarity which is a clear gloss that I enjoy applying over matte lipsticks to add shine or at times just to make my lips look fuller. The formula is rich in moisture, in fact it's very emollient that makes lips feel super smooth without compromising on the staying power. It applies without being gloopy, feeling heavy or sticky. I also love how it diminishes any sign of lip wrinkles. They have a nice coconut-y scent with some taste to them which is almost undetectable. Also, the added bonus of SPF 15 makes the purchase worthwhile. Lip glosses usually don’t last beyond an hour on my lips however this one lasts good one and half hour which works for me.
The Glossed range offers eight wearable shades which is reasonably good. Talking about the packaging there’s one word – sleek and tiny. That actually makes two. The size of the tube just about reaches the length of my palm so the amount seems too little for the price. I just wish it came in a larger size! In addition to that, it comes with a slim brush applicator that I’m not a big fan of nonetheless it applies the product well and hasn’t splayed out yet.
Overall, I’m happy with my purchase. If you're looking for a lip gloss that adds moisture, shine with a hint of color to your lips with SPF benefits, then these are right up your alley. If you expect an intense/opaque coverage, these aren't for you.
