The quest for the best pigmented lip gloss is not yet over. Though this product is not that new, I finally caved in and bought a few shades from BonMarche.
I currently have 3 shades: Orange Tempo, Rouge Allegro and Fuchsia Orchestra.

Orange Tempo looks like tomato red. It’s an orange-red shade. It is a very wearable orange because it’s not as bright and but appears more of a deep orange on the lips.
Rouge Allegro is a warm reddish pink shade. This is a good shade for those who are afraid to wear a red lip. You know it’s there but it’s not as eye-catching. Compared to the other 2 shades, this is the a little bit sheer. You really have to build it up to get an full on color. This feels less thick and slightly watery too which can be a good thing for those who do not want a very tacky gloss.
Fuchsia Orchestra is a blue-based bright pink. Out of the three, this is my favorite. Well, I am actually quite biased since I really love how a blue-based pink lipcolor looks on my skin. It gives your face that pop of color when you don’t want to put on too much makeup.
I like how it sits on my lips. This is similar to Dior Fluidstick and Maybelline Elixirs (which I have both reviewed already, see here and here.) except this is a little bit more tacky. This means it stays longer on your lips though. Fuschia Orchestra lasts on my lips for 5 hours without fading – that’s without eating but includes drinking from a cup. Although it does not fully dry and suck out moisture off your lips, for some reason, it stays on for quite a while and we all like a product like this, don’t we? The shine will be gone after 2-3 hours but it stains your lips like a boss.
I like this better than Maybelline Elixirs because this is a little bit more pigmented but I like the Dior ones more because it’s more lightweight. But this is a good drugstore alternative. Overall, this is a good product to try especially for those who wants to skip a step in their makeup routine. You don’t have to put on a lipstick then a lipgloss because with these you get great pigmentation and shine in one product.
