Amber

Anastasia Amber Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that applied evenly without streaking but a bit of color gathered in some of my deeper lip lines. The consistency felt smooth and spreadable with a light tackiness that helped it adhere well to the lips but still felt comfortable. This shade wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating while worn.

P.S. — Sephora was showing 19 shades discounted to $8 last night (when I wrote the review).

St. Tropez

Jouer St. Tropez Lip Topper ($16.00 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a sheer base with fine pink and silver pearl and larger pink flecks of glitter. The consistency was thin with a fair amount of slip–it felt a little oily (and it is advertised as being “with coconut oil”)–but the glitter and shimmer spread evenly across the lips, which I always find to be key in a sheerer, shimmery gloss. I could feel some of the sparkly bits on the lips. The Lip Topper formula can be used alone or over a lip product, and it is designed to be a sheerer product. It was sheerer than Tan Lines but like a warmer, pinker version of Frost Bite. This shade wore well for three hours on its own and was hydrating.

P.S. — DermStore has the new Jouer summer collection and currently has a 20% off code (MDSALE20, which works sitewide) for Memorial Day weekend 🙂

ColourPop Curvii Ultra Glossy Lip ($6.00 for 0.085 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark peach with a hint of pink and barely there pink sparkle. It was supposed to have medium coverage, and it had more semi-opaque coverage when I tried it. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and mostly non-tacky, so it spread well across the lips with fairly even coverage. There was minimal streaking (mostly around the edges of my lips) with some color that had settled into my lip lines. It wore well for four hours and was lightly hydrating.

Moon Jelly

Anastasia Moon Jelly Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) has a translucent base–possibly gold-tinted–with iridescent blue and lavender sparkle. It looked like a sheer gloss with “semi-sheer” sparkle. It had somewhat even dispersion of the sparkle, but it could have been more evenly spread across the lips. The texture was smooth, slightly thinner than their more opaque glosses, but still on the tacky side. It wore well for four and a half hours and was hydrating. The pigmentation was the reason for the rating on this shade, as the formula is described as opaque and there was nothing that indicated this was different (at least not on the brand’s website).

The formula is described as “an opaque, high-shine lip color” that has “intense pigment” and a “precision” applicator. The pigmentation of Anastasia’s Lip Gloss formula has been what distinguishes it from a lot of ther gloss ranges, because many shades have been opaque, but two of the new shades released for summer are decidedly sheerer. It would not surprise me if this was intentional–they both have “reflect” in the description (more shimmery than most shades within the core line-up) but none were described as sheer.

Iced Out

Smashbox Iced Out Be Legendary Liquid Lip ($24.00 for 0.27 fl. oz.) is a rich, deep blue with a hint of purple and fine blue pearl. The consistency was light-medium in thickness, tacky but not goopy, and smooth. It was intensely pigmented and applied with opaque coverage in a single layer with little fuss. There was a bit of color that sat in my lip lines (they seemed darker), the high-shine finish made that less apparent in person. On me, this shade wore well for six hours and was lightly hydrating.

The formula is supposed to have “the full coverage a lipstick” with “the high shine of a gloss” in “a single coat” and is available in two finishes (metallic and vinyl). To me, it felt more like a gloss than a lipstick overall, as it had the plushness and glossiness I’d associate with a gloss. The coverage was typically mostly opaque to fully opaque across the range, and they went on fairly evenly and smoothly. I noticed that a lot of shades emphasized the lines on my lips up-close, but I couldn’t tell just looking in a regular mirror, as there was such a strong shine. The wear ranged from five to seven hours, which I suspect is partially due to the slightly thicker, moderately tacky texture. You can view swatches of all shades here.

Myth

MAC Myth Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.10 fl. oz.) is light-medium, peachy orange with warm, yellow undertones and very fine, gold pearl. It had medium to semi-opaque pigmentation that applied unevenly and was incredibly prone to pulling into my lip lines. The gloss was lighter weight than others in the range, but it still had the tackier feel of Lipglass. This shade wore nicely for four hours on me and was slightly hydrating.

The Lipglass formula is supposed to be “pigmented, very shiny and can impart subtle or dramatic color” that can be worn “on its own, over lip pencil or lipstick” and will “condition lips.” MAC could use an update on the description as some shades are more pigmented than others but several are sheerer and likely intended to be that way. The formula has a very glossy, high-shine finish with a light-medium weight and moderate tackiness. I find that newer Lipglasses (over the last couple of years) are smoother and not quite as tacky as the formula was many years ago. They wear from three to six hours on me and are usually lightly hydrating. MAC recently updated the shade range and packaging for the range (though the formula was said to be unchanged), so worth noting is that with that packaging change came a reduction in quantity to 0.10 fl. oz. (was 0.17 fl. oz.), which may matter for some but not everyone.
