Sephora Divergent High Shine Lipgloss

Sephora Divergent High Shine Lipgloss aren’t technically available on their own! Aw man! But you can pick them up along with three eyeshadow palettes and a cheek palette in the new Divergent Multi-Piece Collector’s Kit ($59.50) that launched at recently (in stores soon).

The Sephora Divergent Cosmetics Collection plays homage to book worms and geek fan girls and guys with a new collection of makeup inspired by the Divergent book come movie.

Inside the multi-piece kit you’ll find the Sephora Divergent High Shine Lipgloss in four shades looking all Hourglass Cosmetics dupe-like yes?

Take a peek!

Sephora Divergent High Shine Lipglosses

There isn’t any double for under $60 bucks the Divergent Multi-Piece Collector’s Kit delivers a nice range of products plus the added benefit of owning a collector’s piece inspired by your favorite series of books.

Right down to the massive heavy cardboard box the collection comes in makes for a delicious visual for geeks and makeup junkies alike.

The set includes a range of products but today I’m just focusing on the four Sephora Divergent High Shine Lipglosses because I was asked about them the most. I’ll be reviewing the complete set shortly.

These are actually a spot on dupe for Hourglass Cosmetics packaging with a flat rounded tube. They have sponge applicators for application and all four shades come with this set.

Shades Include:

  • Natural Virtue
  • Supreme Ritual
  • Temptation’s Choice
  • Fear Not

They do run sheerer with a light texture that isn’t sticky, tacky, or heavy. I find they need to be built for the best wear otherwise they lack shine and glossiness. However, after a few applications they look like very nice natural, nude lips which makes for a perfect companion to the natural shades of shadow also included in the set. Wear time is around two to three hours without eating or drinking.

I wouldn’t call them the best lipgloss I ever tried and I might run through them mighty fast due to the fact I’m applying about four layers of product for the best look. But they aren’t terrible either and fit right in with the nude look the collection is hoping to achieve.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    On you this formula looks similar to the Urban Decay newer Naked line of lip glosses. Is it …or does it just look like it in photos?

  • Adrian

    “Dupes” and “made by the same manufacturer” are two different things. Remember that.

    • Isabella Muse

      can you confirm sephora and hourglass have the same manufacturer Adrian? For now I labeled them dupe as I haven’t a clue if the same company made both Sephora and Hourglass’s packaging.

        Hmm…your site erased my link, but yes, can confirm. We’re the manufacturer of that lip gloss series. It’s called the Casimir and comes in three different sizes.
