Illuminare UltraShine Mineral Lip Gloss in Tease, Sultry, Flirty, Foxy, Vixen - swatches, pics, review

Hello, Beautiful!

I have another great product from Illuminare Cosmetics to share with you in this post. In the past I've shared how much I love their full coverage foundation, and I've recently fallen in love with their matte foundation (which I plan to review in the future), but in this post I'll share with your their UltraShine Mineral Lip Glosses. I have one full sized shade (Vixen) and I also have the trail set, which includes all five shades and a disposable wand to apply the gloss. Let me know what shade you like best!

Also available in a trial pack, which includes all five shades and a disposable lip brush, for $10 on the Illuminare Cosmetics website. The trial pack is a great way to see which color you'll like, and you get plenty of gloss in each sample packet to really test drive each color several times.

Packaging:
The full sized version is a rounded tube with twist-off lid and doe foot applicator. The sample packets are these little pillow-packs that you can cut the end off and squeeze out the product. If you have an empty palette for lipstick/lip gloss you can squeeze them right in there, or mini jars, etc.

Illuminare UltraShine Mineral Lip Gloss Review:
I really liked the formula of the Illuminare UltraShine Mineral Lip Glosses. They went onto my lips smooth and comfortably, making my lips feel hydrated. The colors are sheer and buildable, making all the colors wearable. The shimmer is pretty, and isn't in-your-face but just enough to give your lips plenty of shine.

Out of the five shades, my favorite is Sultry, followed by Vixen, then Tease. Foxy is pretty too. Probably the only shade that doesn't work for me is Flirty because it's just a little too milky light pink for my taste, but it is a pretty color on its own.

Overall, I think these are really nice lip glosses that I'd recommend!
