Glo & Ray's La Amo Creamy Matte Lipsticks are undoubtedly up there among my favourites - but when I recieved Glo & Ray's Shimmer Lip Color Set* at the #SummerGlo event I finally had the chance to try out some of the brand's La Amo Creamy Shimmer Lipsticks. The set contains three lipsticks in the shades Honey (a very wearable peachy-pink), Marigold (a bright orange-toned red) and Asteria (a purple/fuschia crossover).

I was intially surprised by how similar Glo & Ray's La Amo Shimmer Lipsticks are to ther Matte Lipsticks. They share the same incredibly creamy but very light texture that feels as though it sinks into your lips when you apply the lipstick, offering comfortable and long-lasting colour. The only real difference was that the Shimmer Lipsticks look slightly more glossy when applied to the lips and they also contain micro shine particles that are so tiny that you can't feel them on your lips. I think that the formula of Glo & Ray's lipsticks is one of the best I've ever tried, and the Shimmer Lipsticks are no exception.

I think that Glo & Ray's Shimmer Shimmer Lip Color Set* contains a really nice range of shades. Although two of the colours - Marigold and Asteria - are quite bright colours, they're actually very flattering and would look great on a variety of skintones. Honey is also very pretty, and it's definitely more of an everyday shade compared to the other two. All three shades enjoy the same opaque formula that's pretty easy to apply. It's worth noting that Marigold and Asteria very lightly stained my lips after application but I found that this helped to maintain an even and long-lasting colour.

Overall, I absolutely love Glo & Ray's Shimmer Lipsticks and Asteria is probably my favourite shade (sadly it's only available in the set). I reach for my Glo & Ray Lipsticks much more often than many of the others I own and I'm really happy to finally have some of their brighter colours in my collection. I'd definitely recommend these - I think they're a great investment and are well worth their price. You can find the Glo & Ray's Shimmer Shimmer Lip Color Set* online for £36.00.

Have you tried any of Glo & Ray's makeup before?
And are you more of a fan of neutral or bold lipstick?
