There are so many types of lip products in the world: glosses, balms, lipsticks, etc. So, recently I was intrigued when I saw that Sephora was offering samples of their Ultra Shine Lip Gel. The full size product can be purchased from Sephora for $12 which is comparable with the more expensive drugstore products but it on the low end for stores like Sephora.
I actually really liked this product. I didn’t love the shade I received, but I didn’t get to choose the sample shade. It just didn’t work with my skin tone, but it was pretty sheer so it wasn’t terribly noticeable. Like most lip products, texture is a big factor, and this gel formulation wasn’t nearly as sticky as a lot of glosses, which is something I really liked. The product claims to be inspired by the shine of gel nail polish, but I didn’t think it looked shinier than other gloss-like products. Overall, it was a decent product for the price. The color doesn’t last for very long, but it usually doesn’t with a gloss anyway, and ultimately this “gel” product is just another name for a gloss.
Have you tried any new lip products lately? Be sure to let me know in the comment section!
