Much to my delight, Mirabella Beauty is expanding their Colour Luxe Lip Gloss line with brand new for Summer shades and I have them to share with you, today. Get ready to Go Glossy.
I love Mirabella's lip gloss packaging. Elegant, simple but certainly not boring, a clear acrylic tube is trimmed with a faceted, bright silver band and a brushed silver cap. These glosses look pretty in the glass holder on my dressing table and when I pull one out of my bag to touch up my lips when out and about.
Delivery of the gloss is via a slender, paddle shaped velvety applicator tip on a long, plastic wand. I like a very neat application of whatever I am wearing on my lips. The applicator tip is big enough to do it's job effectively but it isn't so big that it glops gloss all over my face. The slightly rounded tip makes for easy control around contours and helps me to get a nice, precise application.
Swatched here are the three perfect for the season shades:
- Polish is a semi sheer, sweet milky baby pink.
- Sleek is the most opaque of the three, closest to a true liquid lipstick. This beautiful deep rose is lip colour and gloss, all in one.
- Glossed is a delicate, sheer peach with a dancing gold fleck.
Polish on my lips. These milky, semi sheer glosses always settle into my lip lines. It's not obvious at a respectful distance, my lips just look pink. All-up-in-my-grill-macro? Yeah... I don't care. I love this shade. This gloss looks like a creme semi sheer but it has tiny sparkles in it that catch bright light.
Sleek is the grownup of the trio. This is the one that goes to the office, is tossed in a tote on the way to a meeting. This beautiful deep rose can serve as lipstick and gloss, all in one. Be aware that if you have little vertical lip lines, like I do, you will need a barrier pencil and lip liner to corral this beauty. It's a runner! I didn't bother with pencils for this lip swatch and it was plotting it's escape, just in that short amount of time.
Okay, why do dark lippies always make my lips look so... Kapow!? I have okay lips but when I put on a dark lipstick or gloss, all of a sudden it's here come Erika's lips. Weird. I always thought it was supposed to be the other way around.
Glossed is my favorite of the three. I love sheer-ish glosses that have that glass like look and just a hint of colour that I can slick onto my lips all alone or over another lip colour.
Mirabella Colour Luxe Lip Glosses have a beautiful formula. Lightweight, silky smooth, they glide onto the lips and never feel tacky or sticky. They are supremely comfortable and my lips always feel drenched in moisture and care when I wear these glosses.
A price is paid for all of that lightweight comfort and pampering, tho. Wear time is short. These glosses are so delicate and easy that they don't hang out long. Add to that I am a lip smacker/rubber/lippie worrier and I'm reaching for my tube to touch up often. If you aren't as nutty as I am, you should get an hour or two before slicking on a quick coat.
One feature of these glosses that I love to distraction is that gorgeous vanilla frosting scent. It's just so sweet and good. It does linger softly for a little while but it isn't strong, I don't smell like a bakery coming down the hall, or anything and it does dissipate, after a few minutes. If you are very scent sensitive or just dislike scented cosmetics, this gloss may not be your cuppa.
Mirabella Colour Luxe Lip Glosses are cruelty free, paraben, talc and gluten free, as well.
If you like what you see here, the Mirabella Colour Luxe Go Glossy Lip Gloss colours for Summer will be available in July and will retail for $26.00 each. Mirabella Colour Luxe Lip Glosses and other beautiful mineral based get gorgeous goodies are available at Mirabella Beauty's main site, Dermstore, LovelySkin dot Com, Skin Care by Alana and other quality sites and shops that carry this fantastic line.
