Maybelline Shine Shot Prismatic Lip Topcoat ($5.99) is one of two new lipgloss topcoats that launched with the Maybelline Summer 2016 Collection. I just reviewed the Maybelline Shine Shot Glassy Shine Lip Topcoat earlier this morning for you and Prismatic Lip Topcoat is just another version with a different finish of that formula.
Prismatic Lip Topcoat and Glassy Shine Lip Topcoat were created as companion topcoats for the new Maybelline Color Jolt Intense Lip Paints. These topcoats morph and change the color, consistency, and finish of the Color Jolt formula (or any other lip color you choose to use them on top of)>
I’m actually really loving on the Glassy Shine Lip Topcoat! It quite reminds me of my dearly beloved Too Faced Mirror Mirror Lipgloss from years and years ago. Maybelline Shine Shot Prismatic Lip Topcoat isn’t really my thing but it’s still a very interesting product that performs considerably different compared to Glassy Shine Lip Topcoat. I think Glassy Shine Lip Topcoat has some limitations to what it does where as Prismatic Lip Topcoat not only offers shine but also morphs shades and creates different looks completely when using the new Color Jolts.
Maybelline Shine Shot Prismatic Lip Topcoat comes housed in a 0.5 clear squeeze tube with a slanted plastic applicator for application. This is a thick, subtly flavored vanilla topcoat that adds a prism, color shifting shade to lips!
The formula is fairly thick with a gel-like consistency that’s quite sticky but wears comfortably on my drier lips. Now, Shine Shot Glassy Shine Lip Topcoat is pretty thick but this formula is even thicker in texture. The color is a opaque, cloudy off white with purple, blue, and white micro-shimmer. The micro-shimmer gives off a prism or even a bit of a holographic finish. It does add a good deal of shine but if you desire a full shine effect I would most definitely go with the Glassy Shine Lip Topcoat. Although it contains a good deal of shimmer, I never felt the texture was gritty! It was quite smooth.
Shine Shot Prismatic Lip Topcoat is more for the artist lip users as this product morphs and changes the color of lipsticks and lipglosses. So, it not only gives you a prism finish but it also morphs shades and makes them lighter and even changes the shade completely. For reference below I used it over the Color Jolt in Talk Back Red which is a blue based red that shifts to an almost raspberry red with this topcoat over it. I’ve tried it with a few shades and the effects are all very interesting. This is definitely a product that those who like cocktailing shades will enjoy using as you can create a host of different shades using a single top coat. I don’t think it works very well on bare lips but it isn’t supposed to anyway as it is a topcoat. I did post a photo of it below on bare lips so you can get a general idea how it looks. When worn on bare lips it does leave behind a good deal of micro shimmer once it wears away which proves difficult to wipe away. The wear over lipstick, lipgloss, or lip stain is around four hours. The shine fades considerably faster than the clear formula during that four hour period.
Maybelline Shine Shot Prismatic Lip Topcoat is a fun little topcoat that will change, morph, and create a glossy finish on lips when used over your favorite lipsticks, lipstains, and lipglosses. This is a fun one if you love cocktailing and creating new shades!
