Have you checked out the new Make Up For Ever Lab Shine glosses yet? MAKE UP FOR EVER introduced their Lab Shine glosses in February and I have been loving them since then, I’ve just been a bad beauty blogger and neglected to tell you about them until now. Bad Carla!
These new glosses come in a whopping 35 shades in three different collections: Diamond, Star and Metal. All them deliver on shine and color. The Diamond collection has 12 shades and is formulated with their Diamond Powder to provide transparent, natural looking color with shimmering, glittery shine. The Star Collection has 14 shades and is blended with Star Powder for an iridescent mother-of-pearl finish. Finally the Metal Collection features 9 shades and has their Metal Powder blended in it for an intense chrome, mirror finish.
All three finishes boast pearl pigments that reflect and refract light for exceptional shine. A combination of hyaluronic acid and Camelina oil add moisture to the lips and improve elasticity, while beeswax and tetraester create a non-sticky texture that effortlessly glides onto the lips.
I received samples of S8, S0 and D0 have swatched them here for you. I really like this formula, I’m usually not a gloss gal but I have been popping these over lip stains quite a bit in the last few months, the D0 shade has become a staple in my makeup bag now. This gloss goes on nice and smooth with a 0 stickiness factor, it does have a thinner texture to it but I’ll take a thinner texture any day over tacky, thick and sticky. One of my favorite uses for the S8 red shade is to pop it over MUFE’s Rouge Artist Intense #40 (the orange shade) for when I want a little more drama. It’s pigmented enough to transform the orange into a more intense, vivid shade but not so opaque that you don’t see the orange coming through. It’s my new vampy lip combo.
These glosses retail for $18 each and you can find them in a Sephora near you now. Have you tried these yet? What do you think of them? Are you a thick, tacky gloss gal or a thin, slick gloss gal? I want to know.
