500- Treasure Hunt

My first thought of Treasure Hunt was "oh my goodness I don't think I can pull off this color", but guess what? I really like it! It takes me out of my comfort zone without going overboard. This color would work great for when you do a light neutral eye & want to play up your lips.


750- Endless Night

I knew I was going to like Endless Night because its a nice natural color. This color would work great when you want to have a bold eye look & neutral lip.



My Thoughts:
I love the fact that these glosses are so affordable & that there is 24 colors to chose from! All the names sound so creative & I can't wait to see all the colors in person.

Okay now on to the actual lipgloss. First of all I like the packaging. It's not overdone but doesn't look cheap either. Just from looking at the packaging I could tell that this lipgloss was going to be pigmented. These glosses can be applied lightly for a more natural look or they're even buildable for more color payoff. This gloss isn't drying & actually makes my lips feel like I just applied chapstick! I would recommend giving these a try.

Do these lipglosses really last six hours?
I find that the color lasts but the shine fades after a couple of hours but then again my lip are going through alot of dryness lately so that could be the reason.

PROS:
not sticky
affordable
large color range
pigmented
nice packaging
not drying
buildable


CONS:
None

  2. Dinorah- Endless night really is a pretty nude color with a good bit of shine. Nude colors for my lips are my favorite but every now & then I like to step out my comfort zone & play my lips up a bit.
    Thanks for following my blog =)
