YOU TOO CAN BE A BRONZE GODDESS: Loreal Colour Juice Iced Latte
Feb 26, 2008
Pros: great bronzey color, moisturizing, stays on well,
Cons: tube can get messy
The Bottom Line: For that bronzey sun kissed look, ICED LATTE COLOR JUICE is a wonderful color for summer.
Summertime brings many lovely things with it. Lots of colors of flowers, bright clothing, sunshine, fresh air, green grass.......
One thing that I love about summertime is the ability to wear bronzey colors and actually look GOOD in them from being tan.
ICED LATTE COLOURJUICE LIP GLOSS by LOREAL is a wonderful bronzey color.
WHAT IS ICED LATTE COLOUR JUICE LIKE?
ICED LATTE COLOUR JUICE comes in a flexible tube about 4 inches long with a rounded top on it. The cap on top is also rounded and matches the color of the gloss inside.
The rounded top of the tube has a hole in the middle which allows for precise dispensing of the gloss on the lips and the rounded end allows for spreading the gloss around the lips.
The fragrance of ICED LATTE is a light fruity one- similar to juicy fruit gum. The color is a translucent copper base with bronze gold shimmer. It is a very lovely gloss.
This gloss is very thick and does not seep all over the lips like some thinner glosses do. It does not seep beyond the lips into the fine lines around the lips.
Here is what LOREAL says about this gloss: Quench your thirst for glossy lips that burst with sheer color and juicy shine with COLOUR JUICE SHEER JUICY LIP GLOSS. Just squeeze and apply for fresh, ripe color and a moisturizing shiny finish. Wear alone or use as a topcoat over your favorite lipstick to really juice up your look.......Weightless moisturizers leave lips soft and supple. Packed with shine extracts, COLOUR JUICE LIPGLOSS offers glossy shine and a delicious fruity fragrance.

At the time of this review, there are 19 available colors.
I was very surprised at how thick and rich that the LOREAL COLOUR JUICES are. The consistency is identical to many lip glosses in the LANCOME line of JUICY TUBES.
LOREAL and LANCOME are under the same parent company, and I often find that they cross over with the same colors in both lines of gloss.
Since the COLOUR JUICE are often on sale for less than half price of what you would pay for LANCOME JUICY TUBES, it is a much better deal than buying JUICY TUBES.
I have a LANCOME JUICY TUBE color that is similar to this called MANIHI. I am not sure if it was a limited edition color or not . MANIHI has a lighter version of the translucent base (same tone, not quite as dark) with the same glitter.
LOREAL COLOUR JUICE is a lovely thick gloss. It wears beautifully, and depending on the color (each color is different consistency), I can get up to an hour or so of wear time without having to reapply.
ICED LATTE is one of the thicker COLOUR JUICES by LOREAL. I usually have to reapply from 45 to 60 to get full color, but enough color usually remains that I don't have the urgency to constantly reapply like with other glosses.
I really enjoy this color. The shimmer does not stay behind a lot as with some glosses.
It leaves my lips very moisturized and supple. I do get a little bit of peeling the next day when using them, but not very much.
This lip gloss also does not leak all over my lips up into the fine lines of skin around the lip line. I often use it over lipsticks to add a punch.
ICED LATTE is a great color for summer when you want a bronzey look. Because of the sheer nature of this color, it is wearable with many warmer palette colors- but it does not tend to be at its best with cooler palettes. I wear this color a lot in the summertime, but not so much in winter, unless I am able to capture a good bronzey palette on occasion.
WHAT I DON'T LIKE
One thing I do not like about LOREAL COLOUR JUICES that I do like about LANCOME JUICY TUBES is the applicator. The rounded tube of the COLOUR JUICE makes for a messy application- it is very difficult to apply well to the top lip without looking silly.
Also, the product does tend to leak up into the threads where the cap screws on and when it is in the purse, lint and dirt can work their way up there pretty easilly.
However, cleaning is fairly easy- just twirl in a tissue a few times while holding it tightly and it is good to go again.
