$18, an Ulta exclusive (a $54 dollar value)
Continuing with our Holiday Gift Guide Series (see the tab up top!), we're taking a look at Triple the Glossy! set by Benefit. A set of three full sized lipglosses priced at $18 (the price of 1!), an Ulta Exclusive. I love Benefit's blushes, creaseless cream eyeshadows, so I thought I would give this a try. The value was definitely an incentive; it's like buy 1 get TWO free.
I picked up two different versions of the kit to test the range of colors and applications. I believe that there were three different varieties, but I cannot confirm that on Ulta's site.
I picked up two of these packs.
I plan to break these up and give away to friends!
Both had easy to wear shades.
Kit 1: contained left to right: Fresh Squeezed, Almost Famous, Friends in High Places
Fresh Squeezed: a soft, pearly pink
Almost Famous: a sheer golden nude bronze
Friends in High Places: soft dusty shimmery roseBobbi Brown Creamy Lip Colors, which are stick form. Those who hate sticky glosses like Lancome Juicy Tubes might find these as a nice alternative.
These colors aren't super pigmented, but I don't think that it's their intention. These glosses are just a yours-lips-but-better type of thing.
All very wearable for most skintones.
The second kit: Kiss You, Zone Out, Who Are You Wearing?
These kits are perfect for giving as a gift, splitting up for stocking stuffers or keeping one for yourself and giving the others away.
Kiss you: soft shimmering fuchsia with micro gold shimmer
Zone Out: extremely sheer beige gold gloss.
This one would be great on top of holiday reds!
Who Are You Wearing? A bright party pink, very sheer, just adds a little juiciness to your lips.
The texture of these is brilliant. You have to try them on.
Pros: GREAT value! $18 for 3 glosses (3 for the price of 1) not bad! Easy for breaking up and distributing as gifts or trying several colors of this range. Soft, smooth, non-sticky, moisturizing texture. Very wearable colors.
Cons: Not for those who want extreme color payoff. Avoid if you don't like their "apricot-lychee" scent (I didn't mind).
Overall Rating: A
