Benefit Ultra Shines Lip Gloss: Life On The A List

Pretty in Pink

It’s Sunday morning. Theoretically my favorite day of the week, but it never ends up actually being that cool for me. I don’t work Saturdays, Sundays or Mondays so Monday kind of turns into my Sunday so it’s like a fake Sunday and isn’t right. Anyway, I’m here with a pretty spring time colored lip gloss for you all!

I usually don’t wear stuff on my lips, minus Burt’s Bees. I know that might sound a little strange to some of our readers, but it’s slightly impractical for my life. I’m a nanny, so actually many types of make up may seem impractical for my activities throughout the day, but I still sweep on eyeshadow, blush, concealer and mascara for work. That has been my daily make up routine for the past couple months.

Don’t get me wrong though, I loved my MAC Lady Ga Ga lipstick…until I lost it. I know girls love glosses, our guest blogger Rachel is a huge Lip Glosshead, but sometimes with glosses I feel as though they don’t last very long and are gone within 30 minutes of application.

Life on the A List

I got this pretty Benefit gloss as a Christmas gift and really like it. I like that it is a light peachy / pink color and not too pigmented. As mentioned, my make up routine lately has been very light and fresh and somewhat “wintery” with lots of shimmery colors,  and I think this gloss will be a perfect finishing touch for my face.

Life on the A List

The formula and consistency of this gloss is great. It is not too sticky, which I know we all hate. It is actually not very sticky at all. I think that gloss would work well layered over lipstick too because it is not too pigmented. This gloss has a nice, fresh smell to it as well. It’s sort of peachy or apricoty. It’s not very strong so I don’t mind it, and it reminds me of springtime. Never a bad thing when it’s 20 degrees outside!

Light & Pretty

I like that this gloss isn’t too shimmery and how well it matches my lips already. It sort of looks more like a texture difference on my face rather than a color difference and I really like that. You can see the shine against my skin, not as much the color. I think this color is very versatile and can be worn all year-long.

This color isn’t very unique, but I like it as a pretty staple neutral for sure.
