Sephora's Give Me Some Lip review, pt. 2

Wednesday, February 24, 2010

This is part 2 of my review of the lippies in Sephora's Give Me Some Lip sampler (you can find part 1 here)...

The first one is Urban Decay's Pocket Rocket gloss in Doug. I admit, the hunky guy on the tube is nice to look at and probably a conversation-starter! The gloss is a very sheer raspberry-mauvey-pink color with a good bit of fine, iridescent glitter. There is pretty strong scent that I don't find very pleasant - I can't place it, but it's sort of sweet & nutty, LOL.  The consistency is a little sticky, but not annoyingly so. I'd like it more if I could get past the smell.

Next up is Smashbox's Lip-Enhancing Gloss in Pout. The color is a pale "retro" pink - I'm not sure if I'll be able to wear this one without putting something under it. The color is pretty sheer, but what you do get is pale - very pale. There is a very, very fine shimmer to it also. The consistency doesn't seem to be sticky at all. I think I detect a slight 'cinnamon' scent to it.

The last one is Tarte's Danny & Sandy lipgloss duo. The colors appear extremely bright in the tube - Danny looks almost cherry/candy apple red, and Sandy is just a bit lighter with lots of fine, silvery shimmer. If you look very, very closely at Danny, you can see that it also has a lot of shimmer, but it's almost exactly the same color as the gloss (maybe with just a hint of gold?). I'm not a big fan of Tarte glosses because they're pretty sticky. I can't get enough of the gloss out of the tube to determine the scent, but it doesn't seem to be unpleasant.

Overall, the sampler was definitely worth $25 - but there are only a couple of the glosses that I would consider purchasing again.

I know! I'm almost tempted to buy more just for the pictures, LOL! They need to get a new scent though...
