Good afternoon, lovelies! Time for another makeup review. If you haven’t get, make sure you enter my giveaway for the children’s illustrated book I have going on. There will be TWO winners! 🙂
Ecco Bella FlowerColor Good For You Glosses
unique applicator tube that features the same built-in mirror as our
best-selling mascaras, so there’s never a time when you can’t apply.
First Impression & Packaging:
I received all four lip glosses in this line and while I don’t have a very extensive collection of glosses, I have been wanting to try out new brands. 🙂 The first thing I noticed when I first swatched them on my arm was that the glosses are very pigmented, for a lip gloss.
They aren’t sticky when you apply them, which I was thankful for. Ones that are sticky drive me crazy. The packaging is good. It’s made of a plastic material, with a pretty handy mirror on the back. At first it seems too tiny to be much help, but it’s actually really nice for reapplying on the go.
Product & Application:
As I said, when I first swatched these they seemed really pigmented. And they are, for the most part, but I did discover that different colors have different pigmentation. Which I thought was interesting.
The brightest color in this set, Passion, is the most pigmented. Very beautiful, as you’ll see in my lip swatches later on. Peace and Pleasure are pretty light, but then the color itself isn’t a bright color to begin with.
The lip gloss that I was the least impressed about was the color Power. It’s the darkest color out of the whole lot, but when applied it’s very sheer. It’s still a nice lipgloss, just don’t expect it to look like a liquid lipstick like Passion does.
Major Likes & Dislikes:
I liked the consistency of the glosses. It was really thin and not sticky at all. The glosses had a slight scent to it, but in no way a bad smell. Just slightly floral. I loved all the colors except for Power. That one just was really watery/thin compared to the pigmentation of the other glosses. If you like sheer lipglosses, Power would be the one to check into. But for me, Pleasure was my favorite, followed closely by Peace and Passion.
Not a lot of product gets onto the wand when you pull it out, so I typically had to redip at least once or twice when applying it to my lips. Not a big negative fact, but just something that I noticed when using these. My biggest dislike would have to be the price — for me personally, $17 just seems a lot of money for this product. But if you are looking for a product that’s vegan, than maybe the price is worth it.
They’re really nice lipglosses. I like that this brand is more Eco-friendly with their products. All of the gloss colors are nice, basic shades that I every woman has/wants in her collection, so there’s a color for everyone in this line.
Definitely check this brand if you are searching for makeup lines that are cruelty free — and as I mentioned, Ecco Bella even has two vegan options in this line. I will enjoy using these glosses in the future. I’ll especially appreciate the built-in mirrors when I’m applying on the go. 🙂
Question for My Readers: How do you like your lipglosses? Sheer or pigmented? Sticky or creamy? I definitely like mine creamy and pigmented, like a liquid lipstick, I guess you’d say. 🙂
I received one or more of the products mentioned above from Ecco Bella in the hopes that I would mention them on my blog. Regardless, this does not guarantee a review or feature on my blog. I only share information that I think will be useful for my readers and I only recommend products I have personally used.
Simply Earnest says
I totally agree, a sticky lipgloss is not nice. I love lip glosses that are slightly sheer but still have good colour. Can I have both? Haha. Definitely looking into Ecco Bella's vegan lip glosses. Lovely post! 🙂
I don't know why anyone would like sticky lipgloss (yuck). The "pleasure" gloss is my favorite of the bunch.
SimplyEarnest – You can definitely have a lipgloss that feels light but still gives you great color. Just got to hunt it down. 🙂 The Rimmel liquid lipsticks have awesome staying power and feel very light on my lips. And the pigmentation is awesome!
Elise – Haha, same here, I can't stand when your hair gets stuck in the gloss. Yuck! Pleasure is the one I find myself wearing most often. Glad you like it! 🙂
