mark Shimmer Glossblossom Ripening Lip Tint Review

The Muse happens to be a big fan of mark Glossblossom and has reviewed it in the past with a fond rave. Recently mark introduced a brand new version of Glossblossom which adds a hint of sparkle to the mix of things!

The Muse likes to think that mark is responsible for the whole “color changing gloss” epidemic that’s now embraced by Smashbox, Too Faced, Tricia Sawyer, and many other companies!

I do believe that mark Glossblossom was one of the first color changing glosses on the market prior to Smashbox O-Gloss and the likes. The basic concept of GlossBlossom is the same as many brands you’ve since run across in that the gloss interacts with your body’s chemistry or temperature to change lips into the perfect shade of berry pink.

One main difference between mark Shimmer Glossblossom Ripening Lip Tint and other name brands would be the difference in pigmentation. Glossblossom is a much more natural nude shade of pink than what you’d get with other color changing glosses. It’s very natural, very sheer, and very pretty in my opinion. Some people have complained about how terribly pink their lips come out when using say Smashbox O-Gloss and you really have no need to worry with Glossblossom as the color stains lips very, very subtly pink.

The new version of Glossblossom contains a healthy dose of golden sparkle. I guess the questions is if you already have the regular version of mark Glossblossom do you need this new one? No, you do not need to buy this new version if you already have the older version simply because the gold sparkle is virtually invisible to the eye unless you’re really staring hard.

The formula remains the same which is great as I really like it although some may consider it a bit too watery. It’s not long wearing due to the fact that the texture is so watery however this is also a plus as it’s not sticky or tacky on the lips but rather natural feeling with a high gloss shine. However, on that same note you’ll be disappointed by the fact that it doesn’t wear as long as a tackier, stickier gloss might but I don’t mind in the least. It creates a subtle pink pout with a high shine and a hint of fruity flavor makes it all that and a bag of chips plus the price tag can’t be beat at a retail of $6 USD (cheaper on E-bay of around $2.99-$3.99).

If you’ve never tried mark Glossblossom before I highly suggest nabbing one as the price tag is right and it’s nice for a quickie touch up of both color and shine.

This Muse loves it even though it has a flaw or two….don’t be sucked in by the “shimmer” thought as it fails terribly at creating any sort of sparkle on the lips.
