One of the Sephora VIB 100 point samples last week was a mini Make Up Forever Lab Shine Lip Gloss in Star Collection S2. I’ll jump at the change to try a new gloss, especially as a free sample from a brand I’ve started to become increasingly interested in!
What Sephora.com has to say about Make Up Forever Lab Shine Lip Gloss:
What it is:
A lightly textured gloss that delivers spectacular shine with a gorgeous pop of color.
What it does:
This gloss combines camelina oil and mother-of-pearl particles that reflect light to create incredible shine that adds volume to the lips. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, it provides intense hydration with a non-sticky texture for a noticeably moisturized pout. Its subtle apricot fragrance also adds a sweet scent to your lips.
What else you need to know:
Available in 35 shades across three unique collections: Diamond, Star, and Metal. The Diamond Collection includes 12 shades that give natural looking color with sparkling, sheer coverage. The Star Collection has 14 shades with a pearly shine for medium coverage. The Metal Collection consists of nine highly pigmented shades that offer full coverage with an intense, chrome finish. Sephora is the exclusive beauty retailer for this product.
Size: 0.09 oz
Star Collection – S2 (pearly light beige) is a beautiful peachy shade with lots of shimmer that isn’t too over the top on the lip. This product has a brush applicator, which I’m usually not a fan of, but on this product the brush handled very nicely. The color didn’t deposit very evenly over the lip swatch, but on top of a lipstick you won’t be able to tell as much. The photo shows it off a lot more than you’d actually notice in real life, so you’d still be ok wearing this alone.
The formula is non-sticky and has the longevity of your usual lip gloss with just a few hours minus eating and drinking.
Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Star Collection Lip Gloss retails for $18 (for the full size) and is available at Sephora. S2 is currently sold out online, but you can check in store or have Sephora notify you when it becomes available again.
As a sample, this was available online and in store, though I’m unsure if it still is. Call to check availability if this is something you would be interested in.
