It seems like forever since I wrote a review, right? Truth be told, I don't use that much makeup anymore. Except for the weekly FOTDs that I have been so diligently doing, my days go pretty much sans makeup. A bit of lipstick and maybe mascara here and there on top of sunscreen and that's it. Sometimes, I wonder what happened already :)
Last year, my friend Gio from Beautiful with Brains and I did a swap. She sent me this awesome lipgloss from Italy called Astra Illuminante 4Ever in shade number 4.

Also, the wand is great. Since it is a brush, application is more precise. The wand picks up enough product and I only need to dip once.

See how shimmering it is?
This gloss, despite how awesome it is, comes with a flaw: it smells like Lancome Tresor. Really, that's the scent of this gloss. It fades away after 10 minutes and takes a while to get used to but still, the Illuminante lip gloss is a wonderful product.
To recap, the Astra Illuminante 4Ever lip gloss in shade number 4 is an awesomely glossy product. It goes sheer by itself and enhances the shine when applying on top of lipstick. Also, it is moisturizing and can be used without a lip balm. The lasting power is decent and it smells like Tresor.
If you can find it, please get it. This lip gloss will not let you down.
