Sephora Collection Gloss Lab

Sephora has recently released a ton of holiday sets, everything from brushes, to eye shadows, combination sets, and lip gloss sets. Their Gloss Lab* is an interesting take on a lip gloss set, as it gives you three lip gloss "top coats".

"Mix, match, and experiment with this expansive set of glosses in stunning colors. This set includes seven lip colors in perfectly pretty shades and three top coats to add shine, shimmer, or glitter. Wear shades alone or mix together to create endless combinations."



There are 7 coloured shades in this set, and I have to say that they are all pretty pigmented! These smell quite fruity, but the scent doesn't last on the lips. I like the selection of colours in this set, there's something for almost everyone, baby pink, berry, corals.

These glosses are very creamy and fairly pigmented. However, the glitter topcoat is very chunky, and the actual formula feels cheap and jelly-like. I would just use these colours on their own, as the top coats are a bit of a miss for me. 

Each gloss contains 2 ml, for a total of 20 ml of product. Do keep in mind that this set, as with most of Sephora's holiday sets are made in China, so they aren't the same quality as their permanent line. The Gloss Lab set costs $25 US/$30 CAD, and is available in Sephora stores, and online here

I love the idea behind this set, about adding on glitter, shimmer, or shiny topcoats to create a whole new look. But, the topcoats did fall flat for me. I'm really wanting the Benefit High Flyin' Glosses set, and I'm loving the Buxom Time to Shine glosses. Which holiday sets are on your radar? :)
