Charm

Lisa Eldridge Charm Gloss Embrace Lip Gloss ($25.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, cool undertones and barely-there pearl in a cream base. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was as marketed, that applied somewhat evenly to my lips. I had issues with the gloss getting into my deeper lip lines as well as gathering around texture imperfections, so it was not a particularly flattering shade for me to wear.

The texture felt smooth and lightweight, more like a gel-like cream, which helped it spread comfortably across my lips and kept it from being tacky. It lasted well for three hours and felt hydrating, but the settling worsened over time.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.15 oz. - $166.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a "medium to high pigment gloss" (depending on the shade; most are "medium" pigment) that leaves lips feeling "soft as silk" and hydrated. The consistency was more like a creamier gel, so it was comfortable, spreadable, and felt cushiony on my lips without being tacky or heavy. The coverage varied from shade to shade but ranged from medium to opaque but tended to be in line with how each shade was intended to be.

The glosses applied fairly evenly with minimal settling into my lip lines--the kind that is visible in the close-up photo but not in person. There's a lot of shine to them, which gave the illusion of slightly plumper lips, and it seemed a touch smoothing over time (an hour or longer). The formula was really comfortable and hydrating to wear, and it was one of the more hydrating formulas I've tried in awhile. There was no fragrance or taste.

Affair

Lisa Eldridge Affair Gloss Embrace Lip Gloss ($25.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a light-medium, caramel brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had medium pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly across my lips but emphasized my lip lines a little bit. The gloss itself was comfortable to wear, as it was plush, gel-like, and non-tacky while feeling cushiony on. It stayed on well for three hours and felt moisturizing over time.
