Loving the Sigma Beauty Enlight Collection Lip Glosses in Tint, Hint and Tranquil, But Feeling Caught By a Catch-22

The three semi-transparent Lip Glosses in Sigma Beauty’s new Enlight Collection fit with the collection’s neutral vibe.

Violet Hint, rosy Tint and plummy Tranquil hit the “your lips but better” bullseye, and because they’re very sheer, your natural lip color shines through, with just a hint of added tint.

Hint

These are super easy to apply, even without a mirror. I just slick a layer of the thick, semi-sticky gloss (the formula’s unscented and unflavored) on my pout with the brush tip applicator, and go on my merry way. Touch-up time is about 3-4 hours later.

Buuuuuut, there’s a catch…

Even though I can always use another neutral gloss to go with the 10 that roll deep in my purse (I’m so not kidding, either!), I think I’ll have to pass on these, as much as I like how they look, because they sap every ounce of moisture from my lips!

I’m talkin’ more flakes than a bowl of Special K cereal…

No can do this time of year, when my already dry lips need extra moisture.

PRICE: $10

    Wow I can’t believe these were so drying. They definitely wouldn’t be for me, either.
