If I’d realized back then as an undergrad slogging through chemistry classes that science could also be used for things like building a better lip gloss…I probably would’ve paid closer attention in class and said things like, “Cyclohexane chair and boat shapes? I’M ON THAT SH*T!”
Thank you, science, for taking us to the moon, creating super-sized movie popcorn kernels and for providing us with better living through advanced lip gloss chemistry, like the chemistry behind Giorgio Armani Beauty’s new line of Beauty Flash Lacquers ($29 each and available in 36 shades).
The brand new line of lip glosses flaunts scientific-sounding bells and whistles and a stratospherically shiny, smooth formula with characteristics like…
- An elastic shine formula that fills in lip lines for an extremely smooth surface
- A polymer weave that continuously reshapes itself while on your lips
- A low viscosity to keep the gloss surface perfectly smooth
All of this in the pursuit of one lofty goal: to fashion the highest reflection ever achieved in a lip gloss!
Well, it’s shiny — that’s for sure. And dramatic like a microphone drop.
Earlier today I was standing in front of a window, and I could see the color on my lips in the reflection as clearly as if I was standing in front of a mirror.
And the formula remains super shiner as long as I don’t go rubbing or pressing my lips together. When I do, the shine quickly dulls down to a slight sheen.
I’ve been testing two of the shades this week, shimmery Pink 526 and creamy red Rouge 400.
