Okay, I admit it. I surrender. I’m a complete lip gloss addict.
Too Faced’s Glamour Gloss is the perfect antidote to my addiction- it’s so good that it has, for the time being, prevented me from buying ANY other glosses with in a week or two (which, for me, is PHENOMENAL.) because if I’m searching for the perfect go-with-anything lipgloss, I just reach for this or Benefit’s Zone Out. And THAT, I must say is pretty impressive. So Too Faced says that this is ‘A super shine lip gloss collection with a natural plumping and cooling action. Twelve richly pigmented shades offer a chic range of choices for today’s glam girl.’
This statement is true-ish, in that this gloss DOES have a lovelly cooling action, and the’chic range’ part is certainly accurate as well. The shade I tried was also quite pigmented, (Plush) although I don’t know about the others. However. Using this didn’t really plump my lips at all. Now, when I bought this I didn’t see that it was supposed to, so for me this is a plus as I don’t particularly want my lips to look any plumper… however, of course, if you do want it to, then I would have to say that I saw no difference.
Also, there wasn’t a great amount of shine. This seemed like a very creamy, thick gloss which has a tiny it of stick to it so it lasts for really quite a long time. All of this means that Glamour Gloss doesn’t really have enough shine for me to justifiably call it ‘a super shine lip gloss’. I don’t really mind this, as I swatched it in the store before buying and knew what it would be like- but if you are looking for a mirror-shine gloss I would either go for something else OR pur a high shine clear gloss on top.
You may be thinking, ‘why would anyone want to buy this is it doesn’t do what it’s supposed to?’ I bought this lipgloss in the shade ‘Plush’, described as a candied coral. It’s a gorgeous color, and seems to be exactly the way it’s described- a shimmery pinky coral.
It’s ever so slightly sheer, and it gives this fantastic cooling sensation that somehow makes me think of peppermint- now, this gloss smells VERY sweet , like vanilla. Once it’s on your lips, the scent disappears, and it suddenly feels like mint!! It’s kind of counterintuitive, and VERY cool!! By the way, I LOVE the packaging- you might not like it if you don’t like pink or rhinestones… enough said…
This gloss is $19 and is available at both Too
Faced and Sephora.It’s fairly expensive, but it’s not far off the usual Too Faced prices. BE WARNED: the swatched on the Too Faced website are nothing at all like the actual ones! At the Sephora website, they are much more accurate.
