This is what it says on the Anastasia website:
An opaque, high-shine lip color. Use Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss’ flat sponge-tip applicator to deliver intense pigment with precision for an expert finish in a single swipe.
So, first of all I want to mention that I got these in a limited edition set, but all of these shades are available on the Anastasia website.
I got 8 shades, 3 creams and 5 metallics, and I have to say that I’m not that impressed with the more cream finishes.
Out of the three only one of them (Socialite) went on smoothly and very opaque, the other two (Dainty & Black Cherry) went on very patchy and uneven, even though they were quite opaque as well, they just didn’t blend nicely on my lips and I did try to use them on top of other lip products, but I just can’t get them to work.
And I just expected them to be a little bit better than they were.
But as far as the metallics go I didn’t have an issuse with any of them, except for ‘Weekend Barbie’ and ‘Date Night’, they went on a bit too thick on the outside rim of my lips, but they were easy enough to blend out so I wouldn’t say that it’s too bad.
Now when it comes to the formula of these, I find that they are all very comfortable to wear, and none of them are sticky at all.
I also find that they are very pigmented, even the more sheer ones, and I didn’t feel the need to re-apply for a good 3-4 hours, so I do think that these are worth the hype.
The only thing is that the metallics do contain alot of tiny glitter, not that you can feel it, but when it wears off you do have a lot of sparckle on your lips, and that may not be for everyone.
But other than that I do think that these are great, and I would recommend them if you are looking for a good, comfortable gloss.
I got mine from Kicks for 495nok (for the limited edition set), but you can get the indivdual shades on the ABH website for 16$ a piece.
