Nothing gives me more pleasure than to open packages. And if the package contains surprise lip glosses, hallelujah!!! I have this thing with glosses…I visit walgreens just to look at them even though I don’t always get them 😉 I really was so happy when these came in a big-a$$ package 🙂
Anastasia says : This long-wearing lip gloss features “Kiss Me Quick” plant extract that helps to increase volume and fullness in lips, Brown Algae , a key ingredient that smoothes, firms, hydrates, and revitalizes the appearance of skin, and Balkan Botanical®Infusion—Anastasia’s exclusive antioxidant-rich complex that helps soften, soothe and hydrate skin. Anastasia’s Hydrafull Glosses are formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, phthalates, GMOs or triclosan.
Shades I got :
- Moi : a nude pink.
- Sangria : a berry-pink shimmer.
- Barely : a Peachy-beige nude.
Cost : $18 – currently on sale for $10 at Sephora.
My experience with the glosses : I honestly find glosses much better to deal with than lipsticks. There will always be a neutral pink or peach gloss in my bag which I apply even on a nude face to give it some color. When I tried these on, I was really happy with the color payoff and the intensity. They are partly opaque with great pigmentation. they are not runny at all
*cough Revlon cough*. They sit nicely on the lips & you can just apply and forget about them. It does not sit on the lips and gives a nice subtle sheen. Also, they don’t have a distinct flavor or odour which gains brownie points from me. I am not sure about the lip plumping effects but my lips looked really supple and moisturized which is more than enough for me. I looked through all the shades and mostly they’ll suit any skin tone.
