Sephora + PANTONE UNIVERSE Gleaming Lipgloss Set ($26) could be called bargain beauty. The set of five metallic, mega-shine, multidimensional lip glosses is a treat.
Inspired by Pantone’s 2013 Plus Series Metallic Book, this season is all
about the rich gleam of rose gold, the chilled shine of silver, and the
fiery glow of bronze. This collection of glamorous glosses provides
pearlescent pigments in three-dimensional form: fantastic pop,
brilliance, and shine. These glosses are hydrating, non-sticky, and
packed with a variety of vibrant and subdued finishes. Containing a new
generation of polymers, their advanced coating formula allows for a
flexible veil that moves with lips for long, comfortable wear. The
convenient, portable vials (read that ultra-tiny) are the perfect an on-the-go solution, leaving
room for a library of shades in your makeup bag or purse.
The photo showing them in their case is an illustration of a camera lens blinded by the white packaging. A clear top serves as the cover. As cute as it is, I had to ditch the packaging. I have little space left in my makeup bag or my bathroom.
Boysenberry, top left on my arm, is a stunning grape. I think that's Magenta Haze next to it. Bright Rose is under Boysenberry on my arm. It's pastel rose on the lips. Baked Clay is the stunning brown. Rose Dawn is the almost-clear shade that is the only shade at the bottom of my swatches.
