Faces Glam on Lip Gloss - Review

I am a big fan of lip gloss. In fact till about 2 years ago my kitty only had glosses (and one lipstick!)
The lip gloss to me has to be shiny, moisturizing and have a fruity fragrance and/or taste SmileI keep trying different glosses even though the previous ones are not yet over. I will try and review the older ones too but for today I am going to review a lip gloss from Faces Canada.

My local grocery shop stocks a lot of nice cosmetics and I had seen the Faces brand stocked up there. Most of the products they had were bath products. But I knew the brand had surely arrived in India.
That is when I decided to give their lip gloss a try. The gloss comes in a plastic packaging with a brush tip applicator.

The company claims “Easy to apply, high shine lip gloss, vanilla flavored (yum!). For the technically minded, it's the high Percentage of CCT (Caprylic Capric Triglycerides) which makes it so easy to apply, gives uniform coverage and makes your lip feel perfect. Let your lips do the talking!!”

Now for the gloss –
My first impression was the fragrance – I wanted to eat up the whole thing – the fragrance is so yummy!!!! Its not just plain vanilla. Its like vanilla raspberries and all the bubblegum yummy flavors! For people who don’t like fragrance in their makeup well don’t worry the fragrance doesn’t last too long on the lips after application.
I applied this to my lips and it went on super smooth. The coverage was excellent – my lips appeared smooth, plain, no lines showed through, and it was not sticky at all!
I forgot to click a picture of my lips when I had applied it but here is a swatch of the color. This is shade 311.

The lip goss lasts for about 3-4 hours without food. I also had a glass of cold coffee and a pack of chips after which I took a pic of my lips (the gloss was still there!)

As you can see the glossiness is intact. The color has faded on the lower lip inner side due to the coffee but it did not really dirty the glass rim.
I am impressed with this gloss. I love how my lips look with this on.
