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?

Want Color in Your Lip Balm?

Korres Crocus Lip Butter Glaze ($14.00 for 0.34 oz.) is described as a “sheer lavender.” It’s a pink-tinged lavender–almost magenta–with very fine gold shimmer. MAC Flaunting It is darker, more purple. NARS Angelika is lighter. MAC Style Packed is brighter and more opaque. MAC Sassy Lassy is more opaque and pinker. MAC Loud & Lovely is pinker.

The Lip Butter Glaze formula is described as a “line-smoothing, butter lip glaze in a tube” with a “lightweight” texture that yields “vibrant and shiny color.” It has a slick, gel-gloss hybrid-like texture that glides onto the lips easily and remains movable while you wear it. It is non-sticky, yields semi-sheer to semi-opaque color, and smells of sweet vanilla (think MAC lipglosses).

The finish has a high-gloss shine–it’s really a balm-like gloss overall–which lasts for about two hours, while the product itself seems to last right around the three-hour mark. It’s hydrating while worn, and I’ve been using it after a lip-swatching-session, and it’s done a good job restoring hydration and making my lips feel whole again.  The biggest downside is that because of the really slick consistency, it can look uneven and bunch up on itself if you’re wearing too much or press your lips together.

A
It's hydrating, is comfortable to wear, and imparts some color--it delivers on just about all aspects that it advertises, which is fantastic! The only negative is that it can apply unevenly and be hard to get to stay even because it slides around a lot.
