Oh, hello there, lips. What’s that you say? You’re tired of the same-o, same-o fruit punch/vanilla/brown sugar lipgloss flavors and cloying fruit scents?
Lucky for you, BECCA’s outrageously hydrating $24 Ultimate Colour Glosses are here to shake things up in a nutty, new delicious way.
One word: Nutella.
First, I should note that I’m currently ravenous, and my tummy’s rumbling like crazy. I don’t think there’s an official Nutella collaboration involved here, but I swear, my nose and tastebuds detect something very hazel-nutty when I wear these…
But like the memory of a dream early in the morning, it quickly fades, until it’s gone within a minute.
Depending on which side of the Nutella-covered fence you’re on, you may or may not think these are great.
Personally, I would have liked to see the flavor and scent last longer, but then again, I used to keep a spoon and a jar of Nutella in my purse for “emergencies.”
These shiny, non-sticky glosses are also pigmented, and they come in 10 shades, from soft nudes like Fallen Angel, to deep, juicy hues like Berry Twist, so there’s something here to satisfy almost every pout.
BECCA even added vitamin E and emollients to the formula (but left out the parabens) to lavish lips with moisture and shine…
I’ve been wearing pinkish beige Fallen Angel, brownish berry Autumn Punch and plummy Berry Twist, and I get about 2 hours of wear time.
For me, of the ones I’ve tried, I think creamy nude Fallen Angel is probably the most wearable, and I love how it looks with smokey eyes.
PRICE: $25 each
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Sephora stores and online at sephora.com and beccacosmetics.com
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (limited wear time, and while I like the flavor and scent, it might be a turnoff for some)
