Another interesting release for summer is the Sephora+Pantone Universe Astral Lip Glaze Gloss Set.
The SPECTRALIGHT Collection I’ve been showing you is inspired by the Aurora Borealis and has multi-dimensional pigments with optical effects and change colour depending on the light.
The Sephora+Pantone Universe Astral Lip Glaze Gloss Set($29 CDN) contains 4 multidimensional, volumizing lip glazes in the shades (pictured from left) Arabesque, Chrysanthemum, Mauvewood, and Brandied Melon. You can see the holographic glitter in these glosses through the packaging! Really sparkly!
I’m not sure why Sephora’s called these glazes, or even glosses for that matter because they feel pretty thick and opaque-pretty much like a liquid lipstick I think. Sephora+Pantone Universe Astral Lip Glaze Glosses have a pretty heavy vanilla scent to them, which does dissipate though. I find them pretty sticky too, and because they are so opaque you do have to take extra care in applying them and make sure you are getting a nice, even layer. Oh, and they have a doe-foot applicator which is great when a lip gloss is as opaque as these are. A brush would have left streaks all over your lips!
Brandied Melon is NOT a colour I’d ever wear. It’s an apricot shade (actually reminds me of cantaloupe) with multicoloured shimmers and just looks weird on my skin tone. I think you need a pretty good tan to wear this one, plus like lipstick shades that remind you of Kraft Dinner. Or Cheezies. With sparkles.
Chryanthenum is a a pretty rose shade with multicoloured shimmers(they all have them by the way):
Mauvewood is a mauvey rose shade with multicoloured shimmers:
And lastly, the shade Arabesque, which is an orangey copper shade, and with this one the holograhic shimmers really show as you can see that my bottom lips looks pinker;
I love bright statement lips, but these Sephora+Pantone Universe Astral Lip Glaze Glosses are intimidating even for me! They are just SO bright, SO flashy, SO glossy and almost metallic looking-I’m not sure where I could wear these without feeling like everybody was staring at my lips! Maybe a concert? Or a festival of some kind? Definitely can’t wear these to Costco haha! I just can’t. Also, I do have to mention that they kind of make my lips burn a bit. I’m not sure if it’s the volumizing ingredient or something else, but I can’t wear them for longer than 15 minutes before needing to wipe them off, so I can’t even tell you how long they really last. I’d think a pretty long time as they are opaque and sticky. If you have sensitive lips, then these might not be something you’d be able to tolerate.
You can find the Sephora+Pantone Universe Astral Lip Glaze Gloss Set at Sephora!
That Brandied Melon is probably the weirdest shade of lipgloss/glaze/lipstick I’ve ever seen on my lips. What’s the strangest lip colour you’ve ever worn?
