When I discover a makeup brand I've never tried it feels like like Christmas came early and before I can process the excitement I'm covered in swatches and elbow deep in color. As a cosmetic aficionado it's my duty to share my fabulous finds and today all you lip gloss junkies are in for a treat! RockinBeauty is a company that prides itself on creating state of the art, high quality products using technologically savvy ingredients that deliver optimal results! If this isn't enough to peak your interest and entice a shopping binge the products are also hypoallergenic and free of parabens and fragrance so you can dial-up the glam without causing irritation.
I have a large gloss collection but the ones I favor most provide saturated pigmentation, luminous shine and an irresistible pout. The glossy beauties in this collection are available in an array of trendy, must-have hues and the packaging is ultra chic and innovative! Each well crafted tube has a handy mirror attached to the back making it ideal for use on the go and when you twist them open 2 small LED lights under the cap automatically go on so you can gloss-up in dim lighting no matter where you are!
Not only is the formula loaded with collagen and peptides to increase fullness and minimize fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth they also apply rich and buttery with excellent color payoff. I would actually classify some of the deeper, vivid hues as lacquer-gloss hybrids because they are thicker, creamier and more intense than traditional lip gloss which I love!
Some of the shades require a bit of blending as I did notice a few tiny chunks but once smoothed out the color is consistent, bold and simply beautiful with a light aroma. The texture feels comfortable and hydrating on dry lips and adheres well which helps increase the longevity. As the color fades and diminishes a moist, supple layer is left behind until you reapply.
The pigments go from sheer to medium coverage and sometimes complete opaqueness depending on the colors you select. They look best on smooth, chap-free skin as they do tend accentuate roughness, I exfoliate my lips frequently as it improves the appearance of all products.
Alison is described as a highly pigmented magenta pink although to me it looks more like a deep rose-pink. This is my favorite shade of the three I chose and the coverage, consistency and color reminds me of a Stila Liquid Lip Color I have. I think this gloss would compliment most skin tones and it is versatile enough for every season.
Although I have taken a break from dark, vampy hues in favor of spring trends I couldn't resist Kiki- a vivacious, plum-burgundy that brings out your inner rocker girl and looks like rich wine. I love wearing this daring shade with neutral eye shadow and winged liner so it really pops!
Unlike the other two colors Corinne has a sheer formula with a swirl of dazzling micro-glitter for a luminous finish. The pale, neutral baby pink provides a soft flush of color and can be applied on top of pink lipsticks for an extra dose of moisture and a little highlight.
The lip glosses retail for $24.00 each and can be ordered online by clicking- HERE.
