Benefit Icebreaker Ultra Plush Lipgloss Quick

Benefit Icebreaker Ultra Plush Lipgloss ($16.00 for 0.50 fl oz.) is described as “clear,” and it is exactly that. There is no color or shimmer, just glossiness and shine once applied. It’s lightly hydrating, comfortable to wear, non-sticky, and glides on with a gel-like consistency. It has a sweet, fruity scent with a healthy shine that lasts about an hour and a half on me.  If you’re going for a clear gloss, the one thing I like to look out for are the larger-sized tubes of them, like this one, but it ultimately depends on how and how often you’re planning to use it.  I wish Icebreaker lasted longer, though.

Maybelline Electric Orange ColorSensational Vivids Lip Color ($7.49 for 0.15 oz.) is a brighteneed, medium-dark orange with warm, reddish undertones and a subtle sheen. We’ve definitely seen this kind of orange from several brands, but this is a more budget-friendly version. MAC Fashion Nomad is more matte. MAC Morange is perhaps a touch lighter. MAC Neon Orange is not as glossy. Illamasqua Flare is matte. Clarins Clementine has a faint shimmer.
