Sephora Pantone Lavish Jewel Gloss Set Review and Swatches
I’ve really liked what Sephora has done with Pantone thus far and I sure hope they have something brilliant planned for Spring 2014 (Emerald didn’t do it for me but I sure did love Tangerine how about you?).
The Sephora Pantone Lavish Jewel Gloss Set contains four 0.22 oz glosses. Each gloss has a flat sponge applicator for application and a buttery vanilla taste and flavor.
These glosses are magnificent on sparkle but the pigment runs a bit sheerer. Two out of the three glosses have a sheerer tint with the other two (both gold shades) are best as over coats as they contain more shimmer than actual color. They are actually really cool because they give a multidimensional look when the sparkle is caught by a certain light. This effect gives the illusion of super intense shine (sure, they are shiny all their own but when you walk into the sunlight it’s mega-watt shiny!).
The texture is lightweight with a little tackiness that enables to wear around three hours. I thought they looked best on top of lipsticks or lip stains versus worn alone as they add depth and sparkle to a plainer lipstick.

The price isn’t quite right for me as I’d mark it at around $20-$22. Near $30 makes it a little to high to swallow when you can get considerably larger gloss sets right now, around the Holidays, with more for around the same price or sometimes less. Otherwise I really enjoyed the glosses and would even go so far as to recommend a purchase if they were slightly cheaper.
These are available now at Sephora and Sephora.com.
