Gala of London lip gloss in PLUM Review and Lip Swatches

Hi girls,
The winter season has officially begun and its nice to cozy up to the blanket and sleep at night. In Mumbai it never gets too cold for long so we become happy when it gets cold for once. I mean atleast we can flaunt our sweaters and shawls.. Lol. Those who are from Mumbai will know what I mean. Anyhow coming back to what I shall review today is a lip gloss for a change. The lip gloss I shall review is called PLUM from Gala of London. Many have not heard of this brand but they really have good and affordable make up of great quality. Let us find out in the review how nice it is...






Ingredients: Nothing mentioned.

Price: Around Rs.120/- do not remember the exact price.

Quantity: 6ml 

Availability: In Mumbai it is available at Beauty Shop, Kandivali and Beauty Centre Crawford Market 






The lip gloss comes in a transparent packaging with a silver cap. Hence the shade is easily visible from the outside.It is not very big and bulky also it does not leak hence it can be easily carried with you in your handbag.Overtime the silver color may wear off but given the price cannot expect a lot. It is sleek and will fit any make up bag. Overall nothing great about the packaging but good enough.




                  (Please excuse my no make up look but that is how the shade looks on me)

The lip gloss has a doe foot applicator which makes the application process easy. I love the short handle as it gives me proper control while applying the lip gloss. The word Plum according to Wikipedia is a deep purple color. Well I cannot say the same about this gloss. It is a MLBB shade for most skin tones. It looks more brown in the swatch- a wearable brown with pink undertones. It is not sticky at all unlike some glosses I know which is very annoying.Hence it is very wearable for most skin tones.It is a liquid lipstick and the color pay off is really good. Two swipes will give you sufficient color and will hide the pigmentation on the lips if any. It is so smooth and moisturizing on the lips- perfect for the winter season.It looks a bit glossy and imparts a lovely shine on the lips. There is very fine shimmer but you do not feel it on the lips at all. The scent is nice and tastes great too, almost like some candy. The staying power is 3 to 4 hours. The color fades away and it does not stain the lips.

The Good:
Affordable.
Nicely pigmented and opaque enough in two swipes.
Goes on smooth on the lips.
Moisturizing.
Decent staying power.
Travel friendly.

The not so Good:
Packaging is not attractive enough.
Ingredient list missing.
Availability is an issue.

Rating: 4.5/5


I love this lip gloss and I have few more. I shall review them in the future. This is a perfect MLBB shade for everyday wear for all types of skin tones. It is easily available in Mumbai at many places.If you find this do try this it is really good. I highly recommend it.
