After contacting Whitening Lightning asking to review one of their Color Your Smile Lightened Lip Glosses I was so surprised to find a rather large box at my door, without hesitation I tore open the box and discovered a rainbow of colourful lip glosses. I wasn’t sent one, I was lucky enough to be sent eleven. Some of the colours in the range may seem extreme to some but I’ve found them all to be extremely versatile and there is something for everyone.
Each lipgloss comes with a handy little mirror on the side of its sturdy tube and when you open it and pull out the wand a LED light comes on. I think this is such a fab idea for times when you’re in an area with minimal light, e.g. a club, so you can apply your lipgloss with ease because you have everything you need. The lip glosses contain collagen peptides which are said to boost moisture and help to make the lips appear more full. Another great thing about the Color Your Smile Lipgloss line is that each one has colour undertones which are said to help make teeth look whiter.
I’ve found the lip glosses to be very moisturising, easy to apply, and long-lasting. The opaque ones are extremely pigmented and the shimmery ones which are a little more sheer are very buildable. The opaque ones remind me of liquid lipsticks because of their longevity and pigmentation. I’m all in all very impressed. I’ve found that mixing some of the shades together, such as Nude & Phuket, works very well as you can create your own perfect shade. These lip glosses also look beautiful on top of lipsticks and I’ve been loving Nude on top of MAC’s Myth.
Pouty Princess ~ A shimmery berry pink shade which catches the light beautifully to create a gorgeous wet look to the lips. It is great for girls who would love to wear red but aren’t comfortable with the boldness of it.
Icicle ~ A shimmery pink shade. This reminds me of a glossy stain as it gives a my lips but better (and a bit more shimmery!) effect.
Salmon ~ A stunning creamy coral shade. I can’t wait to wear this in the Summer time and I think it will look amazing with a tan.
Fiji ~ One of my favourites is this completely girly Barbie pink shade. I have a feeling this will be one of my staple lip glosses for a long time.
Crystal ~ A shimmery peach nude which reminds me of something a Victoria’s Secret model would wear. Its very flattering and helps to achieve a glowy appearance.
Nude ~ A favourite among many, myself included, is the beautiful creamy opaque nude. This looks great alone or on top of a nude lipstick.
Phuket ~ An opaque white shade. When I saw this I thought I’d never wear it but it is brilliant to wear underneath another colour. It mutes down any colour and helps you create your perfect shade. This works great with Fiji and Nude. I’ll definitely be using this a lot more than expected.
Borneo ~ Feeling gothic? Well this is the shade for you. Its pure black. You could also use this to darken any other lip shades.
Seduction ~ This is a very sexy vampy deep wine shade. I think this would look great on top of MAC Rebel or alone. This colour seems to be so popular at the moment!
Bahama ~ Feeling adventurous and exotic? Then this creamy bright blue shade is for you! It is inspired by the Caribbean sea so grab a cocktail and have some fun with this shade this Summer!
Bermuda ~ I love purple lip products and I think this pastel purple is gorgeous. Its so pigmented and bold but could mixed with some of the other shades to the purple you desire.
