Lucky number nine!
That’s how many shades Sonia Kashuk crafted of her new $9 ($8.99 to be exact) Ultra Luxe Lip Gloss. Partial to pale pinks? Check. Nudes? Got ya covered. Rich plums? Right here.
Right now I’m hooked on Prettiest Pink and Polished Plum, both of which, like the other colors in the line, are unscented and unflavored. Every time I swipe one of their brush applicators across my lips, I’m blown away by how evenly they apply, and I think the pigmented, non-sticky formula feels fantastic (and lasts from 2-4 hours). It’s juiced up with papaya extract, glycerin and antioxidants to make it hella hydrating, too.
“This next-generation lip gloss formula delivers beautiful, buildable color with instant softness and multi-dimensional shine. This lightweight, gel-like texture glides on comfortably to leave lips feeling kissable and moisturized â€“ never sticky. Shades range from subtle nude to bold brights. Infused with Glycerin, Fatty Acids and emollients to hydrate lips and Papaya Fruit Extract, a natural skin softener, this multi-tasking gloss enhances skinâ€™s elasticity and protects lips with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.”
The way they feel reminds me of the MAC Cremesheen Glasses (which I lurve!), but they cost less than half the price ($8.99 vs. $20).
Yup, my new/latest favorite drugstore gloss.
PRICE: $8.99 each (otherwise known as $9)
AVAILABILITY: Available now at Target stores and target.com
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A (I would have preferred a doe-foot to the brush, but c’est la vie, ya know?)
