Sephora Red Glow Metallic Glow Lustrous Lip Shine
Sephora Red Glow Metallic Glow Lustrous Lip Shine

Sephora Red Glow Metallic Glow Lustrous Lip Shine ($13.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is a vibrant, cool-toned, pinky-red with a ruby red, metallic shimmer. Surprisingly, I couldn’t find anything that was all that similar to this shade. MAC Ready to Roam (LE, $15.00) is redder. Dior Ceremony Red (LE, $28.00) is less metallic. Chanel Fatale (P, $32.00) is less shimmery, sheerer. MAC Prepare for Pleasure (LE, $20.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.

When I was making my VIB order a couple of weeks ago, I saw this show up as a new formula, and it caught my attention so I figured I’d try a red shade for the holidays. It’s supposed to be long-wearing, creamy, and richly pigmented with a “luminous foil finish.” The consistency is medium-weight and spreads evenly and smoothly. It’s non-sticky for most of the time, though it gets just lightly tacky towards the last hour of wear. It doesn’t cling, but it doesn’t bleed or feather either (worth mentioning, though, is that I don’t usually encounter feathering/bleeding). It was nicely pigmented and didn’t settle into lip lines. It has a softly metallic finish; it’s part metallic, part straight-up glossy.┬áThis shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating while worn. I couldn’t detect any scent to the gloss.

I was hoping the formula was going to be similar to Hourglass’ Extreme Sheen, but this is definitely not as metallic. It’s a nice shimmery gloss, though, that has more of a pearly, glossy sheen.

    This is so pretty, pity I can’t get the Sephora house brand here. But this post reminded me of Hourglass Siren, which I think I should just finally pony up and buy.

  2. Wow! That’s a great lipgloss for 13$. I would definetily pick up one on my next sephora visit!

    This looks so pretty!
    It’s definitely not a full red, but I like the pinky-redness of it. Less intimidating for me. ^^
    I have barely/no metallic lip products, so I think this would be a nice start, haha.

    I looked at the Hourglass product and wow, it is super metallic!

    I have this in pink glow and love it. I’m the only one so far who’s left a review for it on the website. I want to pick up a few more colors. I love Sephora glosses, and these are so pretty!

  14. Gorgeous color looks like a lipstick !
