Well...I have to say that I am in the same boat when it comes to lemming these glosses!!
I got four out of the five, thanks to my lovely Mum, who picked two of these up for me. They run about 7-8 USD depending on what store you find them in. I think at my local CVS they were $7.99.
So what is it that I love about these glosses? *Begins to count the ways on her fingers* Haha just kidding. But seriously, these are pigmented enough to be the only thing on your lips, which I know is a big thing for us girls who are: 1)in a rush but want a nice hue on our lips 2)lazy (just sayin') 3)prefer a glossy look instead of a matte look that the lipstick gives. They are creamy and don't dry out your lips and aren't super sticky like lipglosses but not super slick either. I think they are a perfect medium. Now this is only for these limited edition glosses. I know that there are different finishes for the regular line from Revlon and I don't know if that changes the texture of the glosses.
The staying power I would say is a couple of hours, but I tend to lick my lips a lot. Plus I feel that the staying power of lipgloss/lipstick really depends on the person, there is definitely no set time frame. Anyway, on to the colors!
I love the way Lilac Pastelle looks in the tube but I find it looked really streaky when I tried to take a picture of it. It's a bit sheerer than the other colors though, so that probably explains the streakiness. Nonetheless I still think it's a beautiful color and like Holly said, it is the gloss version of Lavender Whip!
This is a gorgeous red. It's pigmented enough to wear alone, but sheer enough that it doesn't seem too loud. This is great for a date. It's also great to pair with a simple winged eyeliner look and also on top of Viva Glam Cyndi.
My faveeeeee-orite one. I absolutely love how this looks on me. I think this is a great color for summer, the coral just reminds me of gorgeous sunny days. I can't wait till I get tan, I think this will look great!
So ladies, if u can, snatch these up while they last! I've heard that these colors are running out fast. The next post will be about the N.Y.C. Blushable Creme Stick blushes.
