L’Oreal Mint Ice Colour Riche Le Gloss

L’Oreal Mint Ice Colour Riche Le Gloss ($7.95 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a subtly gold-shimmered mint green. I couldn’t think of any dupes from products I’ve reviewed, and the only sheer, green-tinged gloss that came to mind was MAC’s Spring Bean, which I believe is a little yellower (I haven’t had it in sometime, but I do remember it looking kind of yellow-y applied, plus shimmery). When I saw this at Walgreens, I had to pick it up; green gloss? C’mon, so fun! Alone, it’s a sheer dusting of gold and green micro-shimmer that give lips a glossy shine, but there’s no real green coloring of the lips.

MAC Tropical Taboo Cremesheen Glasses

MAC Tropical Taboo Collection’s Cremesheen Glasses ($20.00 for 0.09 fl. oz.) come in four shades: Calypso Beat, Fever Isle, Japanese Spring (repromote), and Narcissus (repromote). All four are limited edition.  If you love the Cremesheen Glass formula, you’ll no doubt love at least three of the four here. I’m not the biggest fan of the formula due to how quickly it wears away coupled with how little is actually in the tube (0.09 fl. oz. vs. 0.17 fl. oz. in Lipglass), so one tube can go rather quickly.  The other is that they tend to be milky or creamy and settle into lip lines, which these do to an extent but a much lesser extent (except for Japanese Spring) than ones in the past have.  The formula is almost creamy but not terribly thick (not like Lipglass), vanilla-scented, and non-sticky.

MAC Tropical Taboo Mineralize Rich Lipsticks

MAC Tropical Taboo Collection’s Mineralize Rich Lipsticks ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) come in five shades: Divine Choice, Glamour Era, Lady at Play, Luxe Natural, and Midnight Mambo. The latter is the only limited edition (and new) shade, which is the only shade I’ll have reviewed in this post, because the other four are permanent and were just reviewed this past March. 🙂

Chanel Ingenue & Interlude Rouge Coco Shines

Chanel Ingenue Rouge Coco Shine ($34.00 for 0.10 oz.) is a soft, yellow tangerine with a glossy shine. On lips, it looked like gold-shimmered peach, and because it was semi-opaque, my natural lip color seemed to mute some of the brightness of the color. Because of the lightness of this shade, it didn’t look as even applied as some of the other shades I’ve tried. It lasted three and a half hours, which is short of average, but was slightly moisturizing while I wore it. Chanel Sentiment is similar but less glossy. Edward Bess Forbidden Flower is warmer, more opaque. MAC Shy Girl is less warm-toned. MAC In a Heartbeat is pinker. See comparison swatches.
