I blame winter for both wrecking havoc on my lips and also for making me crave everything spring-like but I have recently become obsessed with lip glosses. Lip glosses have had a longstanding reputation for being sticky, juvenile and non-pigmented, however, the new lip glosses on the market are defying all of those myths. Recently I picked up the Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss in “Orchid” and I was blown away by the quality and pigmentation!
The Anastasia Beverly Hills lip glosses are available in three finishes – high shine, metallic, and shimmer – and over 30 shades! They are available at Sephora and retail for $21 CAD which I think is phenomenal value for the quality. They are actually a few dollars cheaper than the liquid lipsticks and I much prefer these! The lip gloss has a delicious vanilla cupcake scent, applies smoothy and evenly to the lips, and is non-sticky and long-lasting. Naturally you will have to touch up after eating but the color fades evenly so that you aren’t left with an unsightly ring of color around your lips.
Look at that pigmentation! It is just as pigmented as the opaque liquid lipsticks but provides a gorgeous glossy finish. “Orchid” is described as a “vivid pink purple” and it is perfect for spring. I am also planning to pick up “Kristen”, “Peony”, “Vintage” and “Weekend Barbie”. Told you I am obsessed!
Have you ever tried the Anastasia Beverly Hills lip gloss? Do you have a favourite shade? What is your favourite lip gloss?
