The nourishing and re-hydrating formula ensures a smooth and even application while the pearlescent pigments give the impression of various colors when viewed from different directions.
I saw this tube at the Inglot counter and got this color on an impulse buy. Frickin' LASERS on my lips! Sounds like the perfect party gloss to have in my clutch. On my lips I didn't get frickin' LASERS like I wanted. They were, shall we say, slight hints of lasers? My lighting did show a tiny bit of the hologram effect, but it wasn't the intensity found in the tube. Boo, no lasers.
Eventually I decided to keep this gloss. The formula is juicy and doesn't suck out moisture. My lips feel full and juicy without looking lacquered. Still kissable. The sunlight would sometimes show off a faint hologram or rainbow.
C'mon Inglot. I want frickin' LASERS.
I might be on the mature end of life, but my inner child comes out when I see sparkle and 3d effects, and that includes just about anything, from paper to clothing to jewelry. Especially jewelry, which can't sparkle enough.
When I saw this AMC gloss it looked radioactive to me, glowing in the tube. I have a lot of fond thoughts about radiation, starting with the cancer treatment that put me into remission to neon zebra fish I once saw lighting a tank with their scales, so I decided to buy this radiant tube.
I had a pale pink lipstick on when it arrived so popped this gloss over it. The lips immediately looked like they had depth, luster and the pink color now had blue overtones. It honestly, no lie, made me look about six months younger, with creamy smooth plumper looking lips, and best of all, my teeth looked whiter.
I have also put it on bare lips and it again, gives a nice dimension, but it's not a stark glow like the packaging. Its a clear gloss with some tones to it that enhance your lips without your looking like you kissed a jellyfish. Tomorrow I'll put it over a red lip and see what happens. Red and gloss might be too much for even me, but you never know until you try. My favorite lipstick color in the world is purple, and I know this is going to look great with it.
In my cart I have two more, all the pink toned ones, and I'm going to buy an extra 541 as it's going to be my go to gloss and I want it in both my regular bags. Wait, maybe I need four more...
There is a downside. The formulation is not sticky or goopy. Maybe that's good for some but I prefer gloss really thick, like Mac Lip Glass. But If I have to put it on every hour instead of every hour and a half, so be it. The color is worth it. I have subtly glowing lips that cast a nice blue light on my aging teeth. It's magic.
I don't know why I waited so long to try one of these glosses out. Even though I buy a lot of lipstick, you'll rarely see me wearing one.... Strange?Yes; however, I really am more of a lip gloss kind of girl.
I adore the texture; it isn't sticky or gooey like a lot of glosses are; these have just the right amount of glide and and texture. They feel very light on the lips but not oily, and they have pretty decent staying power. I also like the fact that they have a very fruity kind of smell and taste to them.
The whole premise behind these glosses? Each gloss has a mixture of liquid crystal that reacts either to the skin color or lip color underneath; thereby creating a 3D effect. They look lovely on their own; however, they really shine when applied over lipstick because that is where you can really see the dimension capability these glosses give the lips. I will definitely be purchasing more of these glosses.
Why the 1/2 star reduction? Well, I had the gloss clenched in one hand while I was leaning over to pick some stuff up off the ground and this gloss slipped out of my hand and hit the ground; It maybe took a 1 1/2 to 2 foot drop to the ground. Not a very long drop at all. I didn't think anything of it, and picked the gloss back up. Then I noticed the gloss was leaking form the top right side right underneath where the applicator twists back into the tube. Not good..... Upon closer inspection, the entire top of the tube was broken all the way around. There was no way I could close the tube back up. I went upstairs to my studio and emptied the contents of the tube into an empty storage jar; no big deal, crisis averted. :) I guess I am just a tad shocked as to how easy these gloss tubes break. So make sure you are extra careful when handling them. ;)
Working at Inglot, I spent so much time trying to convince clients, that these glosses are not as scary as they look. In package they look weir. Some of them look like oil. But when you put them on your lips, they add gorgeous shine and make the color even more vibrant.
I have 2 of these. #546 (white) & #544 (a bright pinkish coral). They both have a GORGEOUS multicolor holographic effect that is INSANE...in the tube. But when I apply it it's barely noticeable on my lips. But with that said it does give my lips a plumper effect. It feels nice, not at all sticky & has a pleasant fruity smell. I just wish that how it looked in the tube was how it looked on my lips. But not a bad gloss.
This lip gloss is so different! The iridescent blue sparkle in it takes it to the next dimension! I like it alone when I want a more fun look, and wear it over colors to make the lipsticks pop. I love the formula as well. It's hydrating without stickiness and wears an hour or two for me.
