Make Up For Ever Lab Shine Lipgloss

Make Up For Ever recently released 35 shades of a new lipgloss formula, Lab Shine. The new formula contains small amounts of MUFE’s famous loose powder eyeshadows — Diamond powder, Star powder, and Metal powder — giving rise to three different high-shine lipgloss finishes.

The Diamond Collection glosses are surprisingly sheer for a Make Up For Ever product. The Star Collection shades are generally semi-sheer with lots of sparkle. The Metal Collection offer more coverage, with a pearly-frosty-shimmery finish.

The gloss smells like very sweet peach tea… or maybe apricot preserves, and the formula has a thick, cushiony feel. Lab Shines have a brush applicator (halleluia!) and are $18 each.

    Hey Karla! Here you go enabling me again. I’m so in love with these site unseen. i Have 6 in my sephora cart right now, sight unseen. I guess it’s not quite so unseen now. lol I like the ones that are quite with just a bit of shimmer. not the ones that scream “look at my mouth full of glitter!” I can send you some swatches if you need them. I’d love to be a guest anytime you need me. PS> please excuse the typos. It’s past midnight here, and i’ve been up for hours putting the finishing touches on our glosses and primers. CAN.NOT.WAIT!!! TTYS! beth

    Ooh, very nice. On a no-buy for Lent though, so maybe I’ll pick a couple up after Easter. :)

    Thank You so much Karla, you continue to be waaay more accurate than website swatches.
    I have always wondered why really great makeup compamies have really bad website pictures of there products.
    Anyways thanks a million, hugs from Mexico.

  • Pam says:

    I agree with Wendy, it’s unbelievable that online beauty retailers – and especially cosmetic companies – cannot provide swatches and descriptions for their products a fraction as well as you do. I think they should all pay you (and of course give you all of the products as well!) to do what you do best for their websites.

    As always your photos and descriptions are spot-on, and I find you to be an invaluable resource. Thank you so much!
