Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well, had a fabulous weekend and the sun was shining wherever you were! I have a little project in the works will be revealed soon...i have a few mixed emotions about it right now but i cannot wait to finally get it into action!
So my last few posts have been about some of my favourite products so i thought i would carry on with it and show you another lip product i am really loving. The Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Glosses are such a fun and unique product Benefit have introduced as they mirror their very famous boxed blushers! Like in my previous post this gorgeous 'Benefit Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Sugarbomb' was very kindly gifted to me by my berrie India from 'The Jewel Beauty' and it has been a real go to product which has had a stable place in my makeup bag lately.
If you all read my 'Benefit Boxed Blushers Collection' then you will know that Sugarbomb is one of my all time favourite blushers from them so it was such a pleasant surprise to see that India chose the Sugarbomb lip gloss for me...berrie knows her stuff! :D
The Sugarbomb lip gloss is described as a 'shimmering pinky nude'. When applied on the lips and when swatched it does live up to it's description, however, i would say it is more on the pink side that a nude. This is quite a sheer gloss when applied on the lips...it kind of reminds me of a 'my lips but better' shade, however, it offers more of a glamorous tones as it has tiny weeny shimmering particles in the formulation. They particles are not really noticeable to the touch but can seen more when the sun hits the lips. This is a perfect 'everyday' shade for me as i do love pink lip combinations. I love applying this over MAC Creme Cup...it is one of my go to lip combinations right now and i think it'll stay up there throughout the summer. Obviously, when the lip gloss is layered over a lipstick is does give the product more of an impact which i love as they are a very versatile product.
When applied on the lips the formulation is extremely smooth and does not feel sticky on the lips. There is nothing i hate more that when i am out in public and my hair clings onto my lip gloss in the wind...haha a big no no! So i will most definitely be purchasing a few more of these bad boys! After wearing the gloss for a while i was pleasantly surprised that my lips still felt super smooth and moisturised and after the lip gloss had almost vanished it left no white residue behind! It does have a slight scent when you apply it on the lips, which is a scent i really like...it reminds me of really juicy fruit and sugar which is similar to the 'sugarbomb' box blush!
Instantly when you look at the lip glosses you can see how similar the packaging is to the boxed blushers and i think they look amazing. The fact that the lip glosses also come with a a similar style box for the outer packaging is very beautiful and i think they work extremely well at complimenting each other.
As you can see from the pictures above the applicator is a transparent squeeze gloss style. I think this gives the lip glosses an edge as most lip glosses we see today have the classic doe-foot applicators. This style of application reminds me of the Lancome Juicy Tubes which are also some of my favourites! I don't have a favourite way of applying lip gloss per say but i would say that the slanted plastic applicator is a great way to have easy and even application especially when you are on the go and in a hurry.
Benefit also offer this Lip Gloss in -
