NABLA Cosmetics Shine Theory Lip Glosses Reviews & Swatches (Part 2 of 2)

RSVP

NABLA Cosmetics RSVP Shine Theory Lip Gloss ($15.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a medium-dark, plummy red with warm undertones and lots of copper and gold pearl throughout. It had medium coverage (and wasn’t described as sheer) that covered my lips without streaking but had some product that sank into my deeper lip lines enough to be noticeable in person.

The gloss had a smooth, non-sticky, more gel-like texture that was comfortable to wear and spread well over my lips. The product stayed on decently for three and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Formula Overview

$15.00/0.1 oz. - $150.00 Per Ounce

The formula is described as "thin" and "ultra-mirrored" with a "non-sticky" feel. The brand called out a few shades as having a transparent base or sheer coverage, though not all, but this suggests that shades without a specific descriptor are more pigmented.

The gloss has a lightweight, smooth, and spreadable consistency that was non-sticky, comfortable to wear, and easy to work with. It had a more gel-like feel, so smoother and "thicker" but not heavy. The coverage ranged from shade to shade, but it was generally a more sheer to medium-coverage range from the shades I tried. They were moisturizing and lasted two to four hours on me.

They smelled beachy--like sweet coconut and a bit of sunscreen lotion--but didn't have a discernible taste, though the fragrance was very noticeable while worn.

Stardust Radio

NABLA Cosmetics Stardust Radio Shine Theory Lip Gloss ($15.00 for 0.1 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark pink-coral with warm undertones and flecks of gold and copper micro-sparkle. The texture felt lightweight and smooth, more gel-like as it was plusher and thicker but not sticky or heavy to wear.

It had semi-sheer color payoff that could have applied more evenly, and it seemed more prone to sinking into my deeper lip lines, though the shimmer/sparkle distributed well. It wore well for three hours and felt hydrating while worn.

Toxic Love

NABLA Cosmetics Toxic Love Shine Theory Lip Gloss ($15.00 for 0.1 oz.) has a warmer, peachy base with pink and gold sparkle. There was enough sparkle that the plusher consistency didn’t fully cover it up, so I could feel some of the texture of the sparkles coming through while wearing it (without actively pressing my lips down just to see), which I know can be a deal-breaker for some.

The consistency was still plusher and more gel-like, as the other shades were in the formula, with a non-sticky feel. It had semi-sheer color coverage (but wasn’t described as sheer or as transparent) that lasted for three hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Stardust Radio is such a gorgeous, juicy looking shade for summertime. What a shame that it didn’t earn better than a C grade, otherwise I’d have bought it.
