If you are looking for a collection of lip glosses that will take you from day to night, this is it!
This collection has hit all of the high points:there’s a neutral brown, neutral pink, a bold pinkish-red and an orange. You can easily take this from day to night by just adding another coat. These are 4 mid – full size glosses priced at $29. You can buy this at your local cosmetics retailer, at Sephora or online at Smashbox‘s website. The colors from left to right are:
Fuchsia Flash, Electric Orange, VIP Pink and Copper Remix.
The casing of the lip glosses are a hard plastic material – feels like glass. It is very durable, as I’ve dropped mine several times and haven’t had any damage to the casing. It is uniquely shaped with square edges. This makes it convenient to identify these, with your fingers, from other glosses that are traditionally rounded in shape.
The squared edges, yet unique, make it slightly uncomfortable if you are running out and want to slide the gloss in your pocket. The squared edges also make it a little more tricky when you are cramming your cosmetics in your purse, as I’m often doing. It is, however, very small, so after some maneuvering, you can get one or two glosses in the tight space that you want.
I LOVE THIS APPLICATOR! I can’t say it enough. It is thick, wide, and has a contour that molds perfectly with the curve of lips. Because it is so large, you do not have to re-dip it to get even full coverage. There is enough product on the wand when you first remove the cap that you can just apply and go.
Now this is a lip gloss, so you know the desired look will be translucent and not opaque. The product is very true to its color after applied. My lips are very pigmented and I still get great coverage with this product. One thing to know. Don’t let the name fool you, the Fuchsia Flash is more of a natural pink,the VIP Pink applies as more of a pinky-red, and the Copper Remix has mild glitter in it. These glosses look great alone, but do well with lip liner as well. You can also layer them on top of your favorite lip stick. I like that these lip glosses are on the thicker side, so that your lips feel moisturized, but not tacky.
This product can last the majority of your work day without reapplying – provided you don’t do a lot of eating or drinking. I drink lots of water throughout the day, so by the time lunch comes, and when it is time to go home, it’s about time to reapply. For me, with my water intake, the product will last about 5 hours, if you don’t do that much eating/drinking, I’m sure it will last longer.
