While Chanel’s Irréelle Blush in Tea Rose is one of my favorite blushers, Lunasol’s Full Glamour Gloss in Bright Pink is one of my favorite lip glosses.

First of all, even though the shade is named Bright Pink, it is not a bright neon pink that is hard to pull off. It is actually a very pretty and elegant medium-to-sheer pink which is very wearable. It should suit most skin-tones.

Apart from that, there are two things that I particularly like about this lip gloss. First, it has very beautiful and delicate multi-color shimmer that adds subtle dimension and fullness to the lips and makes lip lines appear less obvious.

Also, the slanted applicator (seen below) is well designed. It glides and spreads the gloss on very evenly. Two swipes, back and forth, on each lip, and it’s done. Sensually glossy, with rippling shimmer.

I also like the packaging. Very simple and sophisticated, which is generally the case with all Lunasol’s minimal and low-key packaging. But it still oozes glamor.

With a stunning spring 2008 collection, Lunasol continues to be a brand that I will pay a lot of attention to in 2008.

hi again!

i tried the p&j (after reading your review) 001 gloss and it is beautiful. i normally don’t wear glosses, first they have bad texture and also their colours disappear on my lips unless it is some sort of lip fluid. but the 001 is wonderful, either on top of canmake lip concealer to brighten colour and even on its on. it is the only gloss where i have got compliments from using! i like the quality of lunasol products, so the gloss will be on my to buy list too.

thanks again for your lovely reviews.

Hello YM,

You are welcome!

I am glad you enjoy using the Paul & Joe lip gloss. It is quite a beautiful shade and I am happy you like it too.

For me personally, the Lunasol one here is equally nice. It is sheerer and less pigmented, so it should suit more skin-tones. The multi-color shimmer is finer than that in the Paul & Joe one, but it is just as stunning. Both are very lovely lip glosses!

Thank you very much for your comment! :)

Hi PJ

Lunasol Full Glamour is my favourite gloss…and I have a lot of glosses. Chanel’s is full of shimmer too but there is something about Lunasol – Its hard to explain, there is a 3D glassiness to it, when the light shines on my lips (particuraly as it gets darker in the day) its a real “wow”. I have this is Sapphire and a brown colour which is divine!

Hi Row,

I agree with you. The glassiness and the multi-color shimmer do somehow create a sense of dimension. Many glosses do this as well, but the effect that this gloss creates seems to really stand out. It’s just so pretty…

I am glad you like this range of lip glosses too!

(I don’t actually have any lip gloss from Chanel, but I have been interested in a couple of them for a long time…)

Thank you for your comment again! :)
