Barely There

Dose of Colors Barely There iluvsarahii Lip Gloss ($17.00 for 0.16 oz.) is a soft, light-medium peach with warm undertones and a cream finish with barely-there, fine gold pearl. The consistency was lightweight, comfortable to apply and to wear, as it was smooth without being thick or tacky. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that applied fairly evenly along the edges of my lips, but there was a faint amount of streaking and noticeable color in my lip lines–the latter not a big surprise given the lighter, creamier color choice. It lasted for three hours and was lightly hydrating.

Formula Overview

$17.00/0.16 oz. - $106.25 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "ultra glossy" with a "non-sticky" and "smooth feel" with "high pigment." From the few shades I've tried, they have a smooth, thin (but not too thin or clingy) texture that goes on easily, spreads well, and is comfortable to wear. They have released at least one shade that was described as sheer, so one might want to pay attention to color descriptions for any one-off releases. They have a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste.

Brillo

Dose of Colors Brillo iluvsarahii Lip Gloss ($17.00 for 0.16 oz.) has a sheer, slightly beige-tinted base with a moderate amount of gold micro-glitter. It had a good level of shine and the glitter dispersed well across my lips. There was something to the base, though, as I could see a smidgen of product in my deeper lip lines (looked almost like a milky beige). The texture was lightweight, non-sticky, and smooth overall, but I could feel some of the glitter when I pressed my lips together. It wore well for three hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

I really like Brillo! The slight, almost imperceptible milkiness wouldn’t be a deal breaker, as I would be using it over lipstick or lip pencil.

Too bad that Barely There does have noticeable gathering in the lip lines. That’s okay though. I have NUDE from MAC x Nicki Minaj.
