Too Faced Rich & Dazzling Sparkling Lip Gloss Review

I am loving the Too Faced Rich & Dazzling Sparkling Lip Gloss that I received in my April Premium Boxycharm box! Rich & Dazzling comes in 13 shades with a price of $21!

Rich & Dazzling is a truly “rich” and thick formula that literally sparkles! I have the shade Hidden Talents which is a deep hot pinkish mauve tone. It has flecks of gold sparkle too which gives it a multi-dimensional appearance. It literally sparkles!

Hidden Talents is a pretty dark shade and not one I would wear everyday but it’s great for a special occasion or an evening ZOOM date! I’d love to get the clear sparkly Pant Off, Dance Off shade next.

The formula feels nice on my lips but is pretty thick and it has decent staying power for a lip gloss. I’m loving it!

The packaging also makes me feel like royalty with a pink cap and gold emblem. It looks so pretty on my make-up table!

Bath & Body Works NEW Spring Lip Gloss

Bath & Body Works has 3 new tropical lip glosses for Spring including Taupe, Champagne and Coral. I picked up the Coral one to review.

The Bath & Body Works Coral Shimmer lip gloss has a beautiful light shimmer and looks amazing on my lips. It has a light sugar flavor and I don’t find it to be sticky and the coral pinky orange shade is light and Springy.

I also love the tropical pink flower packaging and that you can see the gloss shade through the tube.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Lust Palette Collection – First Impression

I ordered the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Lust Palette on the Friday Feb 21st release date and it just arrived today which was super speedy! I was super excited that Jeffree Star Cosmetics now has a purple palette and this one is divine!

First up the presentation is phenomenal! My products arrived extremely well packed with purple bubble wrap and branded purple tissue paper. Everything was perfect and intact!

The Blood Lust Collection consists of a palette, mini purple lipstick bundle, purple Extreme Frost, 5 purple The Gloss shades, 3 new mirrors and various swag!

I purchased the Blood Lust Palette, 2 shades of The Gloss and the Crown hand mirror

The star of the Blood Lust collection is most certainly the Artistry Palette. The case is a beautiful crushed velvet in purple with a crown logo. It has a jewelry clasp and it’s amazing! The palette has 18 shades that range in hue from light lavender (Deviant) to a block sparkle (Executioner). The shade in between include a super metallic pink called Pink Magic and the daring red Bleeding Heart. On first swatch the shades are pigmented and smooth!

I also got The Gloss in Sorcery and Wizards Glass! These are so shiny and sparkly and I went Lord Star next!

Sorcery – Light peach with pink, purple and blue reflects.

Wizards Glass – Bronze with pink and gold reflects and a minor purple reflect.

Overall I am thrilled with this collection and I can’t wait to try it out! You can see more in my Blood Lust First Impression video!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Gloss Review – Plus the 5 NEW Blood Lust Shades!

I recently received the Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Gloss in Candy Drip from the Valentine’s Day Deluxe Mystery Box and I could not be happier with this product! I think I’ve found my new signature lip gloss!

Last Summer I had gotten the small Jeffree Star Cosmetics mystery box and wasn’t super thrilled with the Velour Liquid Lipstick mainly because I’m not a fan of any liquid lipstick and I got the shade Restraints which is a cool-toned grey with a metallic finish and a big yuck on me as far as color is concerned!

Luckily I gave Jeffree Star Cosmetics another try because I know from experience that I’m not going to love every product a company makes. So when I got the Valentine’s Day box with The Gloss I was more than happy to give it a try. From the first swipe I was in love.

First up, the packaging is gorgeous! It comes in a tall regal tube that feel heavy and luxurious so an A+ for the container!

The formula itself is perfect — not too thick, not to thin and not sticky or goopy. My Candy Drip shade (tinted pink with pink & blue shift pearls) glided over my 50-year-old lips like a dream and looked amazing on my face. I even had a stranger compliment my shade. I did wear it over my Urban Decay Amulet lipstick because I need a little extra shade, but it also looks amazing alone. My lips literally sparkled as the formula is luminescent! ! As a bonus it smells like light vanilla crème brûlé!

Jeffree Star Cosmetics The Gloss currently comes in 18 shades with a price tag of $18 each. I really want to try the shades Ice Cold: sheer with purple & blue shift pearls and Shockwave: light bronze tint with pink & white pearls next.

On Feb 21st Jeffree Star Cosmetics is also launching the Blood Lust collection with 5 exclusive The Gloss shades in a purple chrome packaging.

The shades include:

Iridescent Throne – Pale icy lavender with blue and purple reflects.

Lord Star – Fuchsia with blue and purple reflects.

Sickening – Periwinkle with gold and pink reflects.

Sorcery – Light peach with pink, purple and blue reflects.

Wizards Glass – Bronze with pink and gold reflects and a minor purple reflect.

Hello Harry Potter inspired! I think I need all 5 of these shades.

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.

I keep getting samples sizes of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in various beauty boxes and I’m really loving this formula that comes in 53 shades!

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss is beautiful and holds up really well. It has a vanilla scent and the colors are super pigmented. I wear it alone and over other lipstick.

St. Tropez is my favorite because it has a very cool sparkly iridescent finish!

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.
