l'oreal glam shine lipglosses

I seem to have accumulated four of these lipglosses over time, so I decided to make good use of them and do a review for you!
L'Oreal Glam Shine lipglosses are packaged in sturdy tubes that hold 6ml and have a rather strange applicator, it's a large doefoot with a hole in the middle and a pointed end - it applies the gloss on your lips evenly and better than a standard doefoot applicator.
The tube boasts six hour wear, and although they stay on longer than an ordinary lipgloss, for me they don't last any longer than four to five hours on their own, which is still pretty impressive.

From left to right in all the photos, the colours are: Oriental Fuschia, Tempting Pink, Keep The Sweet and Perennial Rose.
All of them have a lot of glitter which is undetectable on the lips, Oriental Fuschia has the least amount of glitter though.
They also all have a faint scent that I can't quite put my finger on what it is, however it is non-offensive and isn't noticeable when you're wearing it.

 Oriental Fuschia
 Tempting Pink
 Keep The Sweet
 Perennial Rose

Oriental Fuschia is the darkest of the lot I have, and since I got it in a set ages ago, it's unavailable (sorry!) apart from if you resort to eBay. This colour makes my lips look a healthy, just-bitten reddish colour, and is my favourite of the quartet I've collected.

Tempting Pink is more coral than the photos show, but it still has a strong pink undertone to it, I think this is a really nice summery colour.

Keep The Sweet is a light baby pink and looks a lot lighter on the lips than it does in the tube. I find that this washes my face out and has to be my least favourite, but I tend to favour darker lip shades so if you like light colours this might be for you!

Perennial Rose - This is the pinker version of Tempting Pink, and has so much shimmer and glitter that it looks frosty, thus making you look older than you are. This has the most colour payoff of the bunch, but they all have very similar pigmentation levels so don't let that deter you from choosing another shade.

Pigmentation 7/10
Overall 7.5/10 - I really like Oriental Fuschia, but I'm not too keen on the others so that pulls down the mark somewhat.
