During summers, I’m all for shiny lip-glosses. Lustrous & glistening, such shades often make the summer months feel so much more beautiful. Although I have always maintained the difference between a shiny lip-gloss & a shimmery lip-gloss, which is exactly where Streetwear Color Rich Mega Shine Lip Gloss in Smokey Brown falls. We already have a lot of review on the Street Wear lipsticks from this range. Lets see if the lipgloss fares well with the help of the review and swatches.

My Review of Street Wear Smokey Brown:
There’s just way too much shimmer on my lips after using this street wear lipgloss , and perhaps some may love that look for parties or special occasions, I for one, have always stayed away from these. But hey, if shimmer is your thing- this lip-gloss is outstanding, because it literally doesn’t move at all.
As for me, as I felt the shimmer was a little overpowering, and since I love layering lip-glosses over lipsticks to create unique shades- I decided to layer this one on top of another lipstick. After a quick look through my stash, I decided to go ahead with one of my favourite pink lipsticks: MAC Speak Louder. Now Agnirupa has previously reviewed this on VNA and this is in itself a bright blue-based pink. I layered a single layer of this lip-gloss on top of the lipstick and you can judge the results for yourself. I do believe that the shimmer has become much muted than how it was on itself. Even the colour combination doesn’t look half bad- so yea, I’d probably use it to give a shimmery uplift to matte shades.
Texture: The sponge-tip applicator of the mega shine lip gloss assist in even application & the formulation does spread evenly on the lips. However, it’s a little sticky, so the formula isn’t entirely weightless & I could feel a layer of lip-gloss, while wearing this product. On the plus side, the slight sticky texture ensures that this street wear lip-gloss doesn’t move at all. Hence even if you layer a couple of swipes for a deeper colour deposit, it will not bleed from your lips.
Pigmentation: Smokey Brown is adequately pigmented, that is to say that it’s semi-sheer & doesn’t completely cover my lips. However, the formulation is quite convenient for layering, and I can always layer it up for a deeper shade. Although there are a million tiny specks of shimmer mixed inside the lipgloss, and the result is quite glossy and shimmery on my lips. If a shimmery lip were what you’d been aiming for, you’d definitely love it. Personally, I’m not really into shimmer, so the end result didn’t really satisfy me.
Longevity: This color rich lip-gloss comes really cheap, price-wise, so the fact that it actually lasts for around 2 hours, is pretty good to me. Also, like I’ve mentioned before the texture is slightly sticky, and that actually helps this lip-gloss in staying on even between light meals & drinks. So you can go ahead, sip on your juice, & rest assured that your lip-gloss would stay exactly where it’s supposed to be.
Packaging: The packaging is quite eye-catching, actually. The container is a transparent plastic tube, with a black screw-on cap. The transparent tube helps in easy identification of the colour, and the small flat, sponge-tip applicator used for application is attached to the black cap. The cover lists the product details and features a cartoon girl with glossy lips, which adds a bit of funkiness to the appearance.

In a nut-shell: I’m not really into shimmer, and if you feel the same, then I won’t push you to buy this lip-gloss. On the other hand, if shimmer is what you’d been looking for, then at this price-range this is quite a steal. Alternatively, if you aren’t sure, you can still go ahead & give this a shot. At Rs. 150, I’m sure nobody’s complaining.
