As an ardent lippy lover, I am always on the lookout for new brands to try so call it perfect timing because I recently discovered Lip Radiance, a collection spawned by Emmy Award- winning makeup artist and one of Hollywood’s most sought after makeup expert, Melanie Mills. A hybrid between lipstick and lip gloss, this line is available in seven shades, admiringly vegan, gluten and paraben-free, and never tested on animals!
Each retails for $24 and packaged in a square tube with exquisite rose gold cover. Typical to most lip glosses, it comes with a doe foot sponge applicator and detectable candy fragrance. It is pretty much weightless which makes it purse-friendly and handy for travel. It has moderate yet buildable pigmentation with slight tacky-feel similar to most lip glosses I have in my stash. It does make my lips feel hydrated, thanks to its Vitamin E, jojoba oil and aloe vera extract. You can wear it by itself or layer over lipstick for more drama. Here are some swatches for your reference:
Naked is peachy nude.
Unstoppable is classic red
Pop My Cork is nude pink
Uncontrollable is berry.
Bottom line, if you are also looking for a new brand to try outside your usual comfort zone i.e drugstore or department store, Gleam Lip Radiance is worth checking out. You can find this line online and select retailers nationwide.
Stay tuned for more Melanie Mills , I have another post coming up!
