GALA OF LONDON LIPSTICK - SUNSHINE

 Hello beauties,


Happy Sunday to all. Going by the trend of neutral lipsticks I have been reviewing, my next review is another favorite shade from my lipstick collection. It is from a brand well known to most people here in Mumbai  They have everything from lipsticks, glosses, compact, foundation, nail paints etc. Yes, I am talking about GALA OF LONDON. The shade I am going to review is called SUNSHINE (no 14) Let us see how  it fares....


Ingredients: Nothing really mentioned.

Price: Around 150 bucks.

Quantity: 4g.




The lipstick comes in a dark blue packaging. The name of the brand is embossed on the lipstick and the shade name and other details at the bottom of the lipstick.The cap shuts well hence it is travel friendly. It also mentions if it is a Cream or a Matte finish - the two variants of lipsticks they usually make. The lipsticks comes in a variety of shades. Most of the shades may be towards the brown and wine family. But there are some nice shades you can check out for sure.




The lipstick is a creme finish and glides well on the lips but what I noticed that if you don't use it, it may get a bit dry initially but once warmed up will glide well on the lips. The lipstick is a peachy shade with orange undertones to it. I love this shade a lot and is a favorite among the other shades  I purchased. It has a pleasant smell which is nice. The lipstick lasts for 3 hours and does not leave any stain on the lips. It may get a bit drying after a few hours. Hence those with dry and chapped  lips should moisturize their lips well before using the lipstick. This brand is available online on few sites but the whole range may be not.


The Good:
Sturdy packaging.
Variety of shades.
Very affordable.
Does not stain the lips.

The not so Good:
May or may not be available in all cities across the counter.
Ingredients list absent.

Rating - 3.8/5

Gala of London is a brand which has been available here in Mumbai for many years. It is an affordable brand and if you find the right shade you are looking it can be a great go to brand for you. I love their lip glosses, will review them sometime soon. I recommend you to try this brand atleast once since it is on the affordable side.

I hope my review was helpful to you. Please feel free to leave a comment.

Happy Weekend.
