L’oreal HIP High Intensity Pigments Colour Presso Review

L’oreal’s latest HIP High Intensity Pigments Colour Presso is the perfect example of a decent product failing because of disastrous packaging.

The gloss duo combines two yummy colors in squeezable tube so they can be worn alone or mixed together for customizable combinations. While the idea is really clever, the delivery itself is far from user-friendly. It took me 5 minutes to figure out how to open the cap and I even had difficulty getting the glosses out from the tubes, let alone controlling the amount of product I want to use!

The glosses themselves, however, are pretty nice, especially if you are into that super wet lip look. All 20 colors are very wearable and they smell GREAT, just like candy. Plus the texture is non-sticky, super light and they give a lot of shine which is perfect for the summer. It’s time to revamp the packaging, L’oreal!

Now you can win a free L’oreal HIP High Intensity Pigments Colour Presso in Trendy along with more L’oreal goodies! To take part in the sweepstake, refer to this entry for more details – remember the deadline is this Thursday so hurry!
