I am definitely a lip gloss girl all the way so when I received my assignment I was definitely on board! I received samples of Covergirl’s ShineBlast Lip Gloss in three colors: Ignite, Radiate, and Ember (they are also available in 12 other colors). The bottles themselves are very cool and sleek. These lipglosses claim to deliver high shine without the stickiness and with a price I can certainly live with ($7.49 a bottle), I was definitely eager to try it out!
What I love:
The ShineSculpt applicator is awesome! It does exactly what it was meant to – hug my lips natural curves for better application. Lip Gloss can get kinda messy, so having this type of applicator definitely minimizes that. This lip gloss also delivers a blast of shine that I love about lip gloss in the first place! It also felt good on my lips (no stickiness here) and it didn’t dry them out.
What I wish this Lip Gloss Had:
More color! I don’t know if my complexion had anything to do with it, but I found myself having to pile on the lip gloss to see even a hint of color. I couldn’t see any difference on my lips between the three colors which a bit disappointing because they all look great in the bottle.
What I can use it for:
It works great as a top coat for the lipstick I do have. I used the Ember Shineblast over my chocolate brown lipstick and it looked fabulous! It gave my lipstick the shine that I love in a lip gloss and I was able to see a hint of the Ember color that created a great contrast!
All in all, if this lip gloss delivered more color, I would totally be in love with it! But for now, I will use it to supplement my lipstick collection!
