LipFusion Boudior Collection Lipgloss in Princess Is Giving Lips the Royal Treatment

Published in: Makeup, Product Reviews

Before the $29 price of LipFusion Luxe Boudoir Collection lipgloss makes you totally cranky (that’s Chanel territory, yo!), consider this: $1 of that goes to the Seven Bar Foundation, a non-profit group helping to empower underprivileged women to start small businesses through microfinanced loans.


What are microfinanced loans? They’re pretty cool. Read more about the Seven Bar Foundation’s work here.

Truth be told, I’d love to see LipFusion contribute more than $1 from every sale (while lowering or keeping the price the same), but I digress…

The limited edition line contains four shades — Vixen (a shimmery mauve), Lolita (a shimmery pinkish beige), Coquette (a shimmery pinkish coral) and Princess (a shimmery purplish hot pink). Today I tipped my hat to the one called Princess. 🙂

The texture reminds me of Smashbox Limitless Long Wear Lip Glosses. It’s thick (but not sticky) and feels smooth and soft on my lips.


I love heart so many things about this Princess, like her medium pigmentation, light orange flavor and scent, subtle plumping action, four-hour wear time and dazzling shine.

She costs a pretty penny (well, 2,900 of them), but I like that a dollar of that goes to help women in need. I can easily see myself finishing this shimmery tube of sparkly purple goodness in no time. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: B+

So what are you up to tonight? How was your day? I lost track of time and didn’t realize I hadn’t eaten dinner until 8:30! I just finished one of those Whole Foods salads I like, yum. Now I’m watching back episodes of The Shield. Remember that show? Vic is…complicated.

  1. ooh, that’s a very pretty colour. my lips are quite pigmented, do you think this would show up true to colour or is it too sheer?

      Hi Dani,

      You might have to build it up if your lips are uber-pigmented. I bet it would also look gorgeous on top of a hot pink lipstick too!

  2. Alex says:

    I like the color for a night out. But only one dollar? They can do better than that.

    Only a dollar? Who’s benefiting from this sale…. Regardless though I’d still love to see the rest of the colors. It’s also refreshing to see a citrus scented and flavored gloss since most are on the bakery side of those.

  5. Kylie says:

    Wow. This entire look is truly STUNNING on you! You look like a friggen model! As for the Shield…. I remember watching this show, Rescue Me, and Nip/Tuck, because FX and MTVU were the only stations I could get in my dorm room without paying for cable, teehee! But it a good show to get for free!

    • Karen says:

      I am totally hooked on The Shield! It’s too bad every other episode seems to traumatise me in some form. 🙁

      I’ve never watched any of the other FX shows — are Rescue Me and Nip/Tuck any good?

    That’s a very beautiful and sparkly shade. I wish they donated more than only one dollar though…

  8. Anna says:

    Too sparkly for my taste, but I love the packaging.

  9. Nina says:

    Thick but not sticky you say? Count me in! 🙂 The non stickiness is my number one priority when it comes to gloss! 🙂

  10. Kim says:

    Oh, I LOVE it – it’s more sparkly than a disco ball!! Right up my alley! You’re right about the $29 being a little steep for a gloss though, even with the charitable contribution.

  11. Amber says:

    Beautiful, but $29?? The charity angle is nice if you were inclined to buy the gloss anyway, but I’d rather buy a MAC gloss and send the rest to the charity!

  12. Amanda says:

    sparkly purple goodness! but even with the donation factored in, it is still SUPER pricey. I wonder if there is a cheaper dupe somewhere….I do love the color and finish though.

    • Karen says:

      I’ll let you know if I run into one! I dunno if it’s going to be this smooth though… that’s one of the best parts about this gloss.

  13. Lisa S. says:

    I do love this color, but come on, 1 measly dollar? I might consider this on sale, but at full price?
    Unless they donate more than a dollar, no.

  14. knownever says:

    The color and high power glitter are pretty awesome but as you pointed out chanel and givenchy have similar effects for around the same price.
