When it comes to summer beauty, nothing can feel easier than a quick swipe of gloss.
If you’re all about a super high-shine gloss, this is the product for you. They truly live up to their name, giving a glass-like finish.
I was sent #202, Sweet Pink (sheer), and #403, Red (opaque). As you can see from the swatches below, 202 is definitely a sheer wash of colour, which once applied, enhances the natural lip colour, without looking overwhelmingly glossy, due to the subtle nature of the shade.
403, is true to it’s word, it’s an opaque, neutral red, which has a super punchy finish once applied–this is really where you see the vinyl lip finish promised by the brand. 403 gives lips you can’t ignore.
Neither of these shades contain shimmer or sparkle (yay!), however, there are a wide variety of finishes and colours in the collection.
The formula itself is a little heavy for my liking. If I’m going to wear a gloss, I need to be light, barely noticeable and certainly not sticky.
While this isn’t the stickiest gloss I’ve ever worn, I think the viscosity of it makes it feel a bit goopy. If you’re looking for high colour payoff, then yes, the opaque shades are the way to go. However, if you’re just looking for something light and breezy, this might not be your cup of tea.
The applicator is pretty spongy, and features a little divot that helps to evenly apply colour precisely.
