Sephora Ultra Violet (18) Ultra Shine Lip Gel
Rose Petal, Fresh Peach, Deep Rose, Ultra Violet, Pretty in Pink, Fresh Mango

Sephora Ultra Violet (18) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a brightened, medium fuchsia-pink with cool, blue undertones and fine lighter fuchsia and violet pearl. It had mostly opaque coverage that went on very evenly and smoothly with a glossy shine. The gloss wore well for four and a half hours and was nicely hydrating while worn. The gloss has a lightweight texture that has a very creamy, gel-like feel that is mostly non-sticky and has a sweet, vanilla caramel scent. Make Up For Ever 207 Candy Pink (P, $19.00) is lighter, less shimmery. Marc Jacobs Beauty Whip It (304) (P, $28.00) is slightly redder. Revlon HD Pink Ruby (515) (P, $8.99) is brighter, darker. Revlon Adorned (P, $7.49) is darker. Marc Jacobs Beauty Boom Boom (210) (DC, $28.00) is very similar. Burberry Pink Sweet Pea (LE, $29.00) is similar.

Sephora Pretty in Pink (23) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, pink-coral with warm undertones and a very light dusting of fine gold pearl. The shimmer is minor and hardly noticeable, but if you detest shimmer in all forms, then I’d look elsewhere. It had mostly opaque pigmentation that went on fairly evenly and smoothly. The gloss stayed on well for four and a half hours while also being moisturizing. Maybelline Rebellious Raspberry (110) (LE, $8.99) is warmer. Revlon HD Strawberry Topaz (535) (P, $8.99) is warmer. MAC Red Blazer (LE, $15.00) is pinker, more shimmery. Dior Wonderland (575) (P, $35.00) is slightly warmer. Illamasqua Follow (DC, $22.00) is pinker, less shimmery. YSL Grenade Pepite (No. 15) (P, $32.00) is pinker, sheerer/ Giorgio Armani #519 (P, $29.00) is less shimmery. MAC Star Quality (LE, $20.00) is pinkerwarmer, less shimmery.

Sephora Fresh Mango (26) Ultra Shine Lip Gel ($14.00 for 0.11 fl. oz.) is a medium orange with warm, reddish undertones and a fine gold pearl. Again, the shimmer in this shade is fine as well as only a dusting. It had semi-opaque color payoff that went on evenly for the most part. It lasted for four hours and was hydrating while worn. Becca Papaya/Topaz (P, $24.00) is more shimmery, darker. MAC Laundry List (LE, $15.00) is slightly darker. Chanel Exotique (12) (P, $34.00) is lighter. MAC Grand Pumpkin (LE, $15.00) is lighter. NARS Wonder (P, $26.00) is darker. MAC Teen Dream (LE, $20.00) is lighter, pinker. Guerlain Tangerine Vlam (P, $30.00) is darker. Burberry Coral (P, $29.00) is more shimmery.

Wow, these look so beautiful, and the ratings are pretty decent too! The Sephora brand is so underrated..can’t wait to check these out in store!

They’re a nice gloss – not perfect, but I find gloss to be a hard category to do well (there is just room for improvement in the technologies that power gloss, I guess, compared to eyeshadow or lipstick!).

Yay! I threw Ultra Violet in my cart after I wore it home from Sephora yesterday when I ordered the sun safety kit! So, It’s on it’s way to me. I am so glad Sephora formulated an affordable gloss. I have a feeling I am going to want all of these! Thanks for reviewing them Christine!

Sephora really has been killing it lately. Pretty in Pink is lovely. I’ve been contemplating one of these glosses – just to test out the formula. I like that you describe them as light weight.

Well, it’s true! 🙂 Oh dear.. After purchasing way too many things I realized I don’t need them. Hahaha! I forgot about my Armani rouge d’ Arnaniin 609! That’s my lip color and I’ve always loved the formulation! And all the colourpop? Well it’s not like it cost much.. But I’m CRAY! I’m keeping the Burberry when they come! But really? 10 years for neuro damage to show? Wow I feel so jaded!!! But elated I rekindled my affair with #609! They feel soooo good. I even got a whole tube for free when I ordered a foundation a year or so ago! What’s wrong with me?! I’m going to laugh it off and think meditatively on my garish hauls.. I love powder blush! What am I doing????? (But I’m so curious) wow. I’m nuts while you can sport anything on your lips and call it glam! Oh, the se givenchy is back in stock. I’m passing. (Finally) if anyone else suffers from this, your words are welcome! 😉 in school they should have a JUST SAY NO program for makeup.

You’re faster than Sephora’s email notification!

Every time you see something new and shiny and sparkly you really want, revisit your stash. Find a dupe. Find ten of them. It should quell the desire a little bit 🙂

I’m lmao!! “You’re faster than Sephora’s email notification!” LOL!!!!!! Mmm yeah, that’s a hilarious answer!!!! Lmao again! But I don’t have any ColourPop… Returns are allowed if not open… One order hasn’t shipped yet.. I’d hate to cancel a second time! I’m still laughing!!! You’re funny!!! 😀 hahaha!!! Happy to be of service! 🙂 lol!!!

I love Ultra Violet and Pretty in Pink, but I have dupes. Fresh Mango is too yellow for my liking. These do seem like very nice glosses from what you’ve shown us so far.

They’re pretty good – room for improvement, but as far as most glosses go, they’re right there with many popular formulas.

The colors are so pretty! Sephora brand doesn’t get much respect, but they have some nice lippies/glosses, glad these got good ratings.

Ultra Violet must come home to me! I like Pretty In Pink as well, but Ultra Violet is just perfect. A must have!

Love it! These seem like they may be good alternatives to Melted Metals, which people seem to say are more like gloss anyway, and Ultraviolet and Pretty in Pink seem like they may be a reasonable-enough dupe for Dreamhouse and Macaron, the two I was eyeing! Thanks Christine! If I may ask, which of the two formulas do you prefer overall?

Too Faced has a completely different texture to me, so they’re hard to compare – Sephora’s is a regular gloss, whereas Too Faced is more like a lipstick. The shimmer/finish of the Metallic Melteds is also a lot more obvious/OTT in comparison!

Now this is too funny, I have a dupe of each of these, so they MUST be seriously solid shades! Yep, got Revlon Pink Ruby & Strawberry Topaz, also MAC Laundry List! Great spring and summer colors for sure!

Ultra Violet is gorgeous on you! I cannot pull that shade off, so I will have to enjoy it vicariously through you. Such a pretty color!
