Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Metal Collection gloss #M10 review

When I saw this gloss on sale in Sephora I simply couldn't resist it.
The colour was so gorgeous I felt almost mesmerised.
Unfortunately, my excitement didn't last long cause this gloss doesn't perform as well as I'd like it to. 

First, the good:
The shade is gorgeous. It's a kind of burgundy rose with tons of metallic shimmer. It looks quite opaque when swatched.
The gloss has beautiful smell.
And the shine is so pretty.

Now on to the things I don't like:
First of all, the applicator. It's a brush with bristles sticking out in all directions and pricking my lips.
Secondly the brush makes the application extremely uneven. The gloss has the tendency to bleed and settle in the lines on my lips.
Thirdly, on the lips the colour is not as opaque as I'd expected. Despite the shine, it doesn't look half as gorgeous as I hoped. Perhaps it should be worn over some lipstick
And finally, it doesn't last. I know a gloss is not meant to last, but still there are some that stay on my lips much longer. Not only the colour disappears but also the shine.
On top of that it makes my lips peel.

    1. The colour is absolutely stunning, unfortunately the gloss itself underperforms :(
