Top 10 of 2012: Lipglosses

These are ten fantastic shades of gloss that I reviewed and tested in the past year.  You’ll notice that there are a few from Bobbi Brown’s High Shimmer range, and let’s just say it was hard not to include more!

What was your favorite lipgloss from 2012?

Add a Splash of Grenadine to Your Pout

Clarins Grenadine (05) Gloss Prodige Lipgloss ($20.00 for 0.19 oz.) is a warm, strawberry pink with gold shimmer. MAC Forever Rose is less pink, more coral, has no shimmer. MAC Star Quality is lighter and has no shimmer. Revlon Strawberry is a touch redder and doesn’t have gold shimmer (but has white and pink sparkle). MAC Galaxy Rose is a bit darker and doesn’t have the same shimmer.

Gloss Prodige is supposed to have “intense color, mirror-like shine, and long-lasting hold.” It has nearly opaque color coverage with some lingering translucency, but it covers very well and–more importantly–evenly. The texture isn’t too thick or too thin, and it feels lightweight on. It has a high gloss shine, and while not a gloss I’d describe as particularly sticky, there is some mild tackiness after an hour or two. Grenadine lasted five hours on me. It has a sweet, fruity scent–almost like a watermelon Sour Patch Kid, there’s a tanginess to it–but it’s a stronger scent.  It’s lightly hydrating and comfortable to wear, but I did notice the texture of the sparkle after the gloss wore away–no traveling, though.

Clarins Grenadine (05) Gloss Prodige Lipgloss Review, Photos, Swatches

It wears and applies well, and it's not always easy to do that with an opaque gloss. The high-shine finish and glossiness makes lips look more voluminous as well!
