Prescriptives’ launched Exhilarating this summer, and I gotta tell you, that green packaging caught my eye. I’d say it’s one of my favorite packagings I’ve seen for the summer thus far. I know some of you find it tacky, but I love it. It’s so bright, vibrant, and SO summer. The Guava Exhilarating Lip Gloss ($14.50) smells like slightly sweet fruit and has this gold and springy green shimmer. It reminds me a bit of MAC’s Springbean lipglass, but this doesn’t feel nearly as sticky, though it is quite thick. I also tried Nectarine Exhilarating Lipcolor ($17.50), which is a semi-sheer coral shade. It doesn’t lean pink, nor too orange, so I actually found myself liking it quite a bit. If you know me, you KNOW I’m all over a good coral lipstick/lipgloss! Definitely a perfect color for summer.

    I love these! I picked up strawberry and pink grape fruit. Strawberry is such a pretty color. I might go back and get rasberry but I haven’t decided. Also love the packaging!

    That lip color is gorgeous! I wish we had Prescriptive’s here, would love to try some of their product!

    • I am particularly loving the coral shade, though I have a thing for oddly colored lipglosses, too… so I am pleased to add a green, LOL.

    I bought Tangerine and all three of the lipglosses when these first were released, and I love them all. :) I also bought the perfume which is my summer scent so far.

    I love the lipstick! Is the lipgloss like Spring Bean?

    That lipstick is GORGEOUS! And I’ve been getting into lipsticks lately. What makes me sad is the price =( $18 is a lot if you’re starting college with no job

    • It’s definitely a bit pricier than I’d like, but I do like that it doesn’t have too much shimmer in it unlike MAC’s CB96, which is pretty, but soo frosty.

  6. wow! colors seem so perfect for summer! Def. must try this out. <33 Thanks xtine!!

  7. That green gloss is so pretty! Definitely reminds me of Springbean..then again how many green glosses are out there to begin with? Haha

    This just made me dig out my MAC Spring Bean l/g. I’ve been neglecting it lately :)

    hi christine im thinking about getting a bobbi brown sheer cheek tint that you reviewed recently but it’s a slightly high price for a girl on a budget. i thought the sheer coral was a lovely shade but you said it was a little frosty. is it too frosty for a natural summer look? and is it too shimmery? will it hold up throughout the day or fade? sorry that was a lot of questions but i want to be thorough. thank you SO much!

    • I don’t think it is too frosty, so I do think you can get a nice, natural summer look from it :)

      It holds up for me, but I always set it with a bit of powder (either a blush or loose transparent powder)!
