2016 was definitely a year of liquid lipsticks and the trend is still going strong for the year 2017. Artistry Cosmetics however have decided they’ve had enough of the trend and to be quite frank so have I. Liquid lipsticks can be very drying on the lips and not all the formulations are good making them rather expensive seeing as you have to buy the high-end ones to get a good formulation. With the release of the Light Up Lip Glosses, Artistry Cosmetics has reignited my love for the traditional sticky texture of glosses.
The most unique thing about these glosses has got to be their packaging. Each of the lipglosses comes in an acrylic tube that has the words Artistry in gold written across them.
The lid is a chic black and when it’s opened, it contains 2 led lights that allow you to light up your lips when applying the lipgloss. The idea behind this is that you would be able to reapply your lippie even in the dark.
The tube also has a mirror on the back of it meaning you don’t need to pack a separate mirror. The applicator itself is your basic doe-foot applicator and it dispenses just the right amount of product onto the lips.
These lipglosses come in two formulations, shimmer and glossy and to be honest I have to say I prefer the glossy formulation of out of the two.
Now that’s not to say the formulation of the shimmers is bad, in fact they’re just as good as the glossy. They have actual shimmer in them, so none of that chunky glitter. They feel really smooth on the lips and the best thing is that you don’t feel the shimmer particles when its on either. I have the shade Sweet Melon in the shimmer formulation.
The great thing about the glossy formulation is that you can expect high shine when they’re applied. I have to say these glosses aren’t just tints they have actual pigmentation to them. I personally love layering this shade Real Red over the Vincent Longo Thinstick Lipstick and the Essence Cosmetics Lipliner that I featured in the Essence We Are post I did recently.
These lipglosses retail for 25 euros a piece, which isn’t cheap but for the fact that the packaging lights up and that they have great pigmentation it’s expected. If I was to compare the formulation to a lower priced lipgloss I would recommend the No7 Lip Glosses but these don’t have the horrible scent that those have.
