Avon Crave Lip Gloss Review

The Avon Crave Lip Gloss comes in 12 scents including Hot Tea, Cucumber Spritzer, French Toast, Chocolate Brownie, Cherry Creamsicle (pictured below), Minted Apple, Birthday Cake, Pumpkin Latte, Strawberry Glaze, Citrus Sangria, Peach Bellini and Salted Caramel.

I tried out the red Crave Cherry Creamsicle scent today and love it. This shiny formula is infused with moisturizing vitamin E and has a pearl finish.

I really like wearing the Crave lip gloss by itself or layered on top of a matte lipstick shade. I love that you can get different shades from clear to brown. Crave gives my lips a nice shine and has decent staying power for a gloss.

The 0.3 fl. oz. tube is a cute size for a pocket or a purse and they would make super cute gifts for Easter baskets or Mother’s Day.

Supergoop Shine-On Lipscreen Review

I received a full-sized Supergoop Shine-On Lipscreen in my Glossybox Limited Edition CEW Awards Box and I’m excited to use it this Spring and Summer.

What’s to love?

sgSupergoop reminds me that Summer is near and I’m in love with this SPF 50 top-coat. I simply use the brush to swipe a little shine on my lipstick for sunscreen protection. The brush is easy to use and I love that it give my color some gloss.

Shine-On has grape polyphenols and sunflower seed oil which helps with dehydration too. The product is a clear gloss and has a very faint scent and taste that reminds me a bit of sunscreen but it’s not offensive. It feel more like a moisturizer on my lips that a gloss and and do get long wear (4-6 hours).

It is is cruelty-free and does not contain synthetic fragrance or oxybenzone. It is also free of  Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates.

Retail Price: #22

NEW Julep So Plush Ultra-Hydrating Lip Gloss

I received a Julep So Plush Ultra-Hydrating Lip Gloss in my July Maven box. This is a new product and it’s really nice.

What’s to love?

The Julep So Plush Ultra-Hydrating Lip Gloss comes in 8 shades — I got Mood which is a nice light pink.

First up I love the square glass tube. It’s easy to hold and looks so pretty with the metallic top. The hourglass doe foot makes application easy too.

The “Made in the USA” formula is scent free and fairly non-sticky for lip gloss although I feel like all lip gloss has a bit of stickiness. They color is gorgeous and gave my lips a plump and pretty shine that’s perfect for Summer. You can also wear this formula over lipstick for added shine.

According to Julep “Hyaluronic Filling Spheres & Natural Oils coat and hydrate lips“.

$19.00 or $15.20 for Julep Mavens

 

Maybelline Color Sensational Color Elixir Review

The Maybelline Color Sensational Color Elixir  is a lip gloss that hydrates and shines.

What’s to love?

The Maybelline Color Sensational Color Elixir is a lip gloss with a nice finish and feel, I do think it has average hydrating effects. I have the Blush Essence shade and while it’s not super pigmented it does do the job. I would say this is a nice quality drug store lip gloss and it can be layered on top of lipstick for a nice shiny look.

The packaging is pretty with a clear plastic tube and good quality doe foot but the color looks much more muted in person than on the Maybelline website.

Blush Essence is a shimmery pink that looks translucent on my lips (that is a drop of water in the photo, as it was raining when I took this photo) and is about average in terms of stickiness. Most shiny lip glosses feel a little sticky to me.

Overall I would buy this one again for the quality and price.

  • Mauvelous (Raisin) – Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Balm
  • Melon (Light Orange) – Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Balm

Your Best Friend Fall in Love Lipstick & Lip Gloss Duo Review

I received a complimentary (free) set of the Your Best Friend Fall in Love Lipstick & LipGloss Duo and it’s simple beautiful. All opinions are my own!

The ybf duos come in four shades: Bloomin’ Berry, Kissable Coral, Passionate Pink and Red. I have the Bloomin’ Berry and my Lip Gloss is Rockin’ Raspberry.

ybf.jpg

What’s to love?

First up, the packaging so so classy and useful. The lipstick comes in a black tube with a neat trick! When you pull out the lipstick a mirror pops up which I love. It’s so great to have a mirror on the run for applying lipstick. I also like the gem on the case, it’s very unique.

The lipstick itself is a beautiful dark rich berry and one of my favorite shades. It’s a cream and applies very smoothy with great pigmentation and it has a light vanilla scent.

The lip gloss is so pretty too. It’s a raspberry metallic and I applied a bit over my lipstick for a deep glossy look. The gloss can be worn alone too and it has a nice doe foot for easy application. The scent on the gloss is a light berry fruit.

As you can see from the swatches the color of the lipstick is a wonderful dark berry and the gloss is a bright metallic raspberry. I am thrilled with both products as they are very moisturizing and feel amazing on my lips.

Both products are Paraben -free. Your Best Friend products are also infused with Smart Active Immune Complex and enriched with extracts from the earth to make skin look radiant and younger looking.

Retail Price: $22.80

Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor Review

I headed out to Target today and picked up the new Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor which is so pretty! The tube is metallic.

What’s to love?

I am super excited about the new Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor. This is one of the most hydrating lipsticks I have used in a while.

Here’s my YouTube review too!

First up, the packaging is gorgeous. It’s a thin sleek tube with a metallic case that’s going to look awesome in my make-up bag. The actual product is oval and really easy to apply.

I got the HD Desert shade which is a light pink. The Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolor comes in 15 colors that are all beautiful.

I found this product to be more of a translucent product that a full on opaque color. It’s pigmented but more of a gloss than a creme. I applied one coat and it covered very well and I think my lips look pump and shiny. I want to try a darker shade to see how much pigmentation I get. It is a bit slippery so I think a liner would work well to keep it in place.

The gel contains hyaluronic acid which helps with the hydration. My lips did feel amazing wearing this product although it does have a mango scent. I would prefer vanilla or mint.

Overall I am loving this new lipstick and the price is right at $7.99 (I also got 25% of with Cartwheel).

Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian Review

I’m on a roll today because I have so many great samples in my stash to share. The Buxom Full-On Lip Cream in White Russian came in the Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Nude Lip Set and it’s a beautiful nude pink color.

What’s to love?

First up I like Buxom tube because it’s wide on the bottom and does not fall over when you stand it up, I also like the hard opaque plastic because it looks classy and it’s sturdy.

The Buxom Cream formula is is different from the Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in that there’s no shimmer, glitter or metallic finish. Instead you get a beautiful creamy high shine finish which comes in 12 shades. It’s also got a good tingle (but not too much) and it smells like sugar or cookies. It also has “encapsulated hyaluronic spheres” to plump your lips and I have to agree that my lips looked nice and plumpy! I actually prefer the Cream formula to the Lip Polish.

As you can see from the photo above it really did make my lips look soft, shiny and plump with a hint of pink. I am really digging this formula! It’s not sticky or goopy either, my lips just feel soft and moisturized. I really love this product!

Just a fun fact too. Buxom is owned by Bare Escentuals which is BareMinerals.

The Buxom Full on Lip Cream is on sale for $10 on March 22nd, 2017 as part of the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty!

Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel Liplicious Lipgloss Review

It’s cold and snowy here in Ohio and I’m breaking out the lip protecters! A few weeks ago I picked up the Bath & Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel Liplicious Lipgloss.

vbn.jpg

What’s to love?

This creamy lipgloss smells just like the Bath and Body Works Vanilla Bean Noel line and it tastes like a minty vanilla sugar. It does have saccharine as an ingredient which I’m not thrilled about but I’d found that most lip glosses use it. I wish they’d just use real sugar.

The formula itself is nice. It’s a clear white with silver sparkles that gave my lips a great shine and shimmer. I use this one pretty sparingly though as it gets sticky if you use too much. I apply a little then blend and blot for the perfect application.

Overall I like the look and taste of this lip gloss but I think I prefer the minty ones. The  C.O. Bigelow – Spearmint Supreme 2X Lip Shine – No. 5 that’s sold at Bath & Body Works is really nice too.
