Gap lip shine lipgloss *pic heavy*

I got them at a Gap outlet store, they retail for $4.99 but where on sale for $2. They come in a plastic pouch. The product itself is presented in a clear square container that let you see the color and the cap that holds the wand is black.  I like the packaging because its very sleek and has a nice size. I checked on Gap website to see if they had other shades, but couldn't find them.


I got the shades Nude Shimmer and Berry Shimmer




Nude Shimmer is a tan / nude base with tons of gold shimmer.  This was my favorite because it looks gorgeous on the tube, but my lips are naturally very pigmented so unless I mute them with concealer, the shimmers are not as noticeable and the gloss base is quite sheer but I still love it.  It was quite difficult to photograph, my camera could not pick the golden shimmer and in the tube it looks more dark than in pictures.


Berry Shimmer is a strawberry-red base filled with tons of fuchsia and pink shimmer. Again, it looks darker in the tube (in person). It applies sheer and leaves a pretty stain when it fades out. It looks pretty by its own or over lipstick.  Even tho is a little bit sheer, you can easily built it up applying a bit more after a while. I think this gloss is perfect to add a pop of color to your look.

  Swatches

Both have a sweet / minty scent. The applicator is the classic doe-foot. On staying power they are normal. If I've been eating or drinking I need to re apply a bit after, but with Berry Shimmer I might not re apply because I like the stain with sparkles that it leaves. They are not sticky, Nude Shimmer is creamy while Berry Shimmer is more jelly-like.

Wearing Berry Nude. Initially was only wearing a  lip liner all over my lips but didn't like it so I layered the gloss on top. In person didn't look as dark and the golden shimmer was very noticeable.

Wearing only Berry Shimmer...and trying to bring sexy back LoL
