It’s official. I am a Benefit Ultra Lip Shine junkie, and with the new five new colors colors they have out for spring, I might have to make more space in my lipgloss drawer to accommodate them.
What I love about Ultra Lip Shines are that they are pigmented, very glossy, moisturizing, last a decent amount of time and smell lightly fruity. They also look really good layered over a matching colored lipstick if you want slightly more pigmentation.
I’m also a fan of the newer (as of the last 6 months or so) tube shape and design. It’s feels weighty and nice in my hand, which I always associate with higher end products. Maybe I’m just a wack-a-doo 😉
Life On The A List, Kiss You
Life On The A List
Life On The A List is a light ballet pink with shimmer. These kind of pinks are my “go-to” colors for lip gloss, I wear them the vast majority of the time. They pretty much go with everything, and you can’t really go wrong. This is a lovely color. The only thing I didn’t love about it is that it does settle a bit into lip lines, but not like some (cough, MAC, cough) glosses can, so it doesn’t matter that much to me.
Kiss You is a pretty orchid purple with pink shimmer. If I am not wearing a pink lip gloss, I am wearing a purple. I gravitate towards purple anything, and since purple is usually a very cool color, I can pretty much wear any shade of it. I love this because the purple is nice and pigmented, it actually shows up on the lips as purple, rather than clear with just a hint of purple. Love it!
Hmm what’s not to love? I like these so much I already have five of the other colors, so I can’t really say anything negative about ’em! Ok maybe the price is a little steep. There I found something 🙂
Have you tried Benefit’s Ultra Lip Shines yet? Which colors do you like best?
