I tend to gravitate more towards lipsticks than lip glosses, but I do love the look of a gloss. I like shiny lips, and I love that lip glosses don’t seem to dry out my lips like long-wear lipsticks can. However, I hate when glosses are too sticky in texture. Recently, I was able to try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss. These can be purchased from Sephora for $16.
Anastasia Beverly Hills is a brand that rose to fame because of their great eyebrow products, but recently they’ve been putting out more and more other products that are getting rave reviews. I’m so glad that I tried this lip gloss because I’m pretty sure it’s become one of my favorite lip glosses of all time. First, it doesn’t feel very sticky on the lips. My lips just feel a bit slick with moisture after using this gloss, but I don’t find that they feel sticky. Also, the pigmentation is incredible. One little swipe packs a huge punch of color. It totally looks like it has the opacity of a lipstick. Finally, these are incredibly long lasting. After the wet feeling has faded, and even after eating a whole meal, there is still color on my lips – and it still looks even! I’ve been ridiculously impressed by how well this lip gloss works, and I definitely would like to buy more colors.
There are some cons to this product though. For one, the color selection is disappointing and filled only with neutrals and berries. I’d love to see more pink, red, and coral options to round out the line. Also, I don’t care for the smell of the product. It smells like a strange mix of cake batter and chemicals. I can definitely live with the smell, but I just wanted to let everyone know in case you feel very strongly about scents in your makeup products.
Have you tried this gloss? What’s your very favorite lip gloss? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!
