Anastasia HydraFull Gloss is a lip gloss that delivers lots of shiny lip hydration and helps to maintain it.
It is formulated with Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter and their exclusive Balkan Botanical Infusion.
The glosses come in eight different colors and about half of them have multi-dimensional shimmer in them.
The applicator that these come with is a paddle shaped plastic doo-dad, which I am not crazy about at all. I think it would work much better if it wasn’t plastic.
It feels hard and really kind of weird applying the gloss with plastic, and is definitely not the easiest applicator I have ever used.
Cameo, Barely, Sugar Pink, Moi
Cameo is a very pale white/pink color with silvery shimmer.
Barely is a light nude/apricot color
Sugar Pink is a candy-colored pink with shimmer
Moi is a medium reddish/pink color
Of these the color I liked the most was Sugar Pink. Cameo is very pale and doesn’t show up all that much. Barely and Moi were a little plain for my tastes, I prefer shimmery colors like Sugar Pink, which is really fun and pigmented.
Flamingo, Bellini, Sorbet, Sangria
Flamingo is a light pink color
Bellini is a bright peach/orange with loads of shimmer
Sorbet is a medium cherry pink/red color
Sangria is a deep red with lots of shimmer
The two stand-out shades here again are the shimmery ones. Bellini is opaque and bright and perfect for summer. Sangria is a great rich color, also very opaque. I do like the color of Sorbet also, looks like a popsicle melted onto your lips!
I found that the shimmery ones were definitely more opaque and applied more evenly than the others. They did all feel very moisturizing and were pretty shiny as well. They lasted about 2 hours on me without some fading, which is ok, not great. I feel the pricing is a bit high for these for sure; I would rather pay around $12-15 rather than $21.00.
