Anastasia Luna, Sunscape, Venus Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches

Luna

Anastasia Luna Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a light-medium gold with subtle, warm undertones and flecks of silver, white gold, and gold pearl and larger sparkle. As expected based on the brand’s description of the new shade, it had sheer to semi-sheer color coverage with a moderate amount of sparkle paired with a glossy finish. There was a slightly milky quality to the underlying base, but it did not settle as badly in my lips as some of the other shades from the fall shades. The texture was smooth and lightweight, almost creamy, and comfortable to spread over my lips and to wear. This shade wore well for three hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$16.00/0.16 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce

It is supposed to be “opaque” with “high-shine” that’s “non-drying.” It is one of the more pigmented lipglosses out there that has a smoother, more cushion-y consistency that typically spreads well across the lips. Some shades gather in lip lines, and some shades apply streaky; it seems more common with lighter shades and milkier colors.

The formula is non-sticky initially and develops slight tackiness over time. My experience from wearing the formula is that they are often lightly to moderately hydrating and wear three to five hours. They have a vanilla scent that isn’t too overpowering nor does it linger once applied (I notice it mostly in the tube).

Sunscape

Anastasia Sunscape Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a soft, medium coral with warm undertones and pink and gold sparkle and finer shimmer. It had medium coverage, which was more than the other four shades in the range and more than described, but I think the higher coverage might have helped this look better on the lips as a standalone gloss. It settled slightly into my lip lines, but the shimmer, sparkle, and shine made it hard to notice it in person from a normal viewing distance. The gloss did not streak along the edges and had a smooth, mostly non-sticky texture. It lasted for three hours and was lightly moisturizing while worn.

Venus

Anastasia Venus Lip Gloss ($16.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a soft, yellowed peach base with multi-colored flecks of sparkle and pearl. It had sheer coverage, just as expected based on the brand’s description, and had a moderate amount of sparkle/shimmer that gave the lips a reflective, shiny finish. The gloss applied evenly, but some of the base color settled into my lip lines, though wasn’t as noticeable from a normal viewing distance as the shininess helped hide it. The consistency was smooth, lightweight, spreadable, and mostly non-sticky, which made for comfortable wear over the three hours it stayed on well for.

I do like how the high level of shimmer makes any sort of milkiness and settling into lip lines fairly unnoticeable. My personal pick: Venus! Cuz, baby she’s got it!
