Holographic Lip Gloss
Holographic Lip Gloss' "otherworldly sheen" may not be for everyone, but if a lip gloss/top coat with a translucent prismatic finish strikes your fancy, this delivers.
There are currently two shades, Mars (a pearlescent peach) and Supernova (an opalescent lavender-pink-whitish hue). Each goes on sheer, leaving just a hint of color so that the holographic finish is the emphasis. The finely milled sparkle adds to the lustrous shine without looking overtly glittery.
The squeeze tube packaging with a sponge-tip wand make application a cinch, and the milky gloss texture coats lips with hydrating plant oils and mango butter for a moisturizing (but not sticky) feel.
The only downside to the formula is the light fragrance, which can potentially irritate lips, but it isn't overly concerning in this amount.
- Delivers a sheer holographic finish as promised.
- Hydrating plant oils and butters leave lips feeling comfortably moisturized, not sticky.
- Can also be used as top coat to perk up dull-looking lipstick.
- Contains potentially irritating fragrance.
