Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Gloss in Mauvelous - pics, swatches, review

Hello, Beautiful!

Back in September I reviewed three shades of the Be A Bombshell Lip Gloss - shades Sangria, Taupeless and Hot Mess. Since then I've gathered another three shades! In this post specifically I am focusing on the shade Mauvelous because it is absolutely my favorite of all the six shades I have. It's so much more pigmented then the others, and it's absolutely a stunning shade. I have pics and swatches of Mauvelous, as well as a comparision of all six shades I currently own swatched next to each other. Check out all the product info, along with my review, after the pics!

My Review...

I've always liked the Be A Bombshell Lip Glosses, but after trying Mauvelous I really LOVE them... well at least I am in love in the Mauvelous shade!

The shade Mauvelous is way more opaque than the other shades, and almost looks/acts as a liquid lipstick - that's the kind of intensity it has. Still has great shine, feels very comfortable on the lips, and the color is absolutely stunning. A perfect mauve-pink! I also love that Mauvelous doesn't have any shimmer in it - it's just a cream shade.

They just came out with I believe 4 new shades, Mauvelous being one of them, and I hope they continue to create new shades - especially non-shimmer, cream finishes. Still on my wish list: Last Call Girl, All Dolled Up, and Caliente.

Like I mentioned, I always liked these glosses but I was never wow'd by the formula; in my original review I mentioned there wasn't anything about the formula that bothered me - it just wasn't life changing. Just a nice, good lip gloss. They all leaned on the sheer side until I tried Mauvelous. Maybe Mauvelous just seems more pigmented because more product comes out on the applicator. That's something the other shades I own seem to lack, but I'm not real sure.

Final Thoughts...

If you've tried Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Lip Glosses before and wasn't blown away or in love, but want to give them a second go, then I highly recommend the shade Mauvelous. If you haven't tried them yet, then I'd recommend starting off with the shade Mauvelous (as I think it will flatter a lot of skintones).

Really LOVED Mauvelous (as if I didn't say that enough already). It was like a completely different lip gloss formula compared to the other shades I own. Love it and would recommend!
