I love trying out new things. Sunday Riley is a brand that I came across in NYC at Barney’s so when the makeup line came to Nordstrom recently I figured a full scale investigation was in order. I started with the lip gloss. I judge a brand by the lip gloss the same way that I judge an Italian restaurant by the Chicken Parm or Veal Parm. Mmmm now I’m hungry.
Back to the gloss! Sunday Riley I have mixed feelings. Here is the low-down!
For $28 I feel like a gloss should be perfect. This one is great but $28…your killin me!
A true innovation in lip gloss! A super conditioning, non-tacky formula adds a high-gloss sheen to lips. Sunflower seed oil ensures a high level of hydration for the prevention and treatment of dry, chapped lips, while photo-stable vitamin C provides antioxidant protection, increases collagen levels to maintain youthful plumpness, reduce melanin production, brighten skin and repair the effects of UV exposure and other environmental damage. One-stroke color application offers superior shine in universally flattering shades, ranging from semi-translucent to shimmery to intense pops of vibrant color. Perfect worn alone or layered over lip color to create endlessly customizable shades.
- 0.23 oz.
This gloss is very moisturizing and so light it hardly feels like you have anything on your lips. It isn’t sticky at all. In the weeks I’ve been using this I found it to be perfect for days when my lips were dry and hard to deal with. Even when my lips are acting up I want some color on them. Antique Honey is perfect for that. It’s a great every day shade. Take a look at a quick picture I took with it on my lips.
I know I post a lot of colorful shades in most of my posts but I like a good neutral shade and this is it! I picked up another gloss color from Sunday Riley that looks like it has a lot of color. I wanted to try something that at least looks like most of the bright shades that I have. I’ll post on it soon.
I’d say that Sunday Riley gloss is not a must have but nice to have. I picked up two shades and I’m done. I’ve got enough expensive lip gloss habits as it is!
