It’s been a while since I've tried anything new from Vasanti Cosmetics but I’m a huge fan of the Love Brights Lipstick and recently the brand has been cooking up a vibrant collection of oil infused lip gloss with supple conditioning agents to enhance and soften your pout.
From nudes, dazzling pink, bright coral, rich reds, plum and lilac, there is something for everyone and when you crave moisturizing, trendy color, these are a great, lightweight option!
The packaging is simple yet sleek and being able to see the color through the tubes makes it easy to grab your favorites in a hurry. The hues I have are: Goddess - a deep plum wine with a vampy twist, Big Sis - nude/beige pink and Rani (which means queen in Hindi) - a rose mauve that looks great on every complexion.
Each pretty gloss is infused with nourishing natural oils including: Raspberry Oil (to smooth and improve elasticity), Peach Kernel Oil (rich in vitamins, fatty acids and antioxidants), Pomegranate Oil (to heal dry, chapped skin) and Jojoba (to hydrate). These rich, scintillating oils smell delicious and the lush formula drenches lips in creamy color that protects, softens and locks in moisture.
The applicator is standard yet effective for effortlessly sweeping on color.
If you’re thinking that these are just your average, run-of-the-mill lip gloss with sheer, flat color then think again! They pack a punch of vivid pigment that can be enhanced to medium coverage for unexpected intensity and a high-shine mirrored finish that makes lips appear full and juicy. With a couple layers you can achieve a gorgeous wash of color with the boldness of a lip cream and the cushiony comfort of an oil treatment. They retail for $22.00 each.
The Mineral Bronzers are perfect for getting your summer glow on and embracing that warm sunkissed look. They are available in three pretty colors: Sunkissed (light golden bronze), Brazilian Tan (medium bronze) and the hue I have - Sun Peach Glow. The gold and tan may provide a nice bronzing effect but the orange-coral is really more of a bright, skin enhancing blush. The design is eye catching and the silky pigment provides long lasting lightweight coverage that blends beautifully and brightens dull skin without any sparkle or shimmer. It retails for $29.00.
If you love a good lip pencil for defining your pout, the new Matte Crush Collection includes 4 trendy, everyday shades that provide saturated, velvety color. The formula glides on effortlessly and bathes lips in creamy moisture that lasts for hours! These mattes are soft, easy to apply and full coverage plus they make fabulous lip liners to accentuate and contour for a voluminous finish.
Since the formula is true matte the pencils are void of shine or sheen but they feel comfortable and wear away into a beautiful faded stain. As far as amazing pencils go, you can’t get much better than these and they tend not to dry out in the packaging or on the lips. The only downside is that they aren’t twist-ups but each pencil does come with it's own sharpener. They retail for $23.00 each.
