Hi my beauties! If you know me, you know I am a sucker for lip products… you truly can’t have enough (In my humble opinion haha) Anastasia Beverly Hills was so kind enough to send me their entire collection of lip glosses to review. They came out with 34 shades and these are the first lip glosses in their make up line. They have come out with liquid lipsticks a few months ago and I reviewed those as well with swatches (link here) These glosses are sold for USD$16.00 each and you can purchase them on the Anastasia Beverly Hills website. I also heard they are available at Macy’s Impulse stores in the U.S. The glosses are extremely pigmented and creamy. They are not sticky but feel very moisturizing on the lips which I really like. They have a vanilla cake/buttercream scent which I LOVE. It smells so good you seriously will want to eat it! (but obviously, do not eat the gloss haha) The scent goes away after a few minutes it’s on your lips, so if you’re not a fan of scented lip products you might want to be aware of these but the scent will fade.
You truly have a huge variety of shades to choose from. There are a lot of pinks and corals with a few nudes and deeper colors included as well. One thing I noticed is that some colors can be quite similar and I wish there were more nude shades (of course because I am a nude lipstick hoarder) I just wanted to see more of a variety of nudes (deeper and brown toned nudes etc), but knowing the company, I am sure they will add more shades to their collection.
The packaging is simple and sleek. I like the brush that the lip glosses come with. It’s a longer and more flexible doe-foot applicator which applies the gloss really easily and with a nice even application.
There are a variety of finishes that the glosses come with. The majority of the glosses don’t have any shimmer in them, but there are a few which have more of a metallic shimmer and visible glitters in them.
I really like the variety of finishes included. Here are the swatches of the glosses on my arm. I organized them into color categories.

Now for lip swatches in no particular order:
Whew! Now there’s a lot of lip swatches! As you can see the colors are all very beautiful and VERY pigmented. You really can wear these glosses alone, or you can top off a lipstick for a really bold look or even to mix and match to create your own unique shade. I truly adore these glosses and I’ve had so much fun playing around with them thus far. A few of my favorites so far have been Vintage, Undressed and Melon. You truly have a huge selection of colors and I really love the formula and pigmentation of these so if you see any shades you like I’d totally invest in a few!
Here are the lip swatches all together:
Let me know what you guys think of these glosses and which ones are your favorites! Xo
