Rock & Republic Luxe Lip Gloss.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I really am loving this Luxe Lip Gloss from Rock & Republic Cosmetics. I do not know why I am surprised, but not all designer lines (especially when it is a first foray into beauty like this from R & R) meet my expectations. But this is different.

From the packaging to the pigment and super high shine, this is a luxurious lip gloss worthy of it's Rock & Republic design.

I have been wearing Hot Sauce, which is a highly pigmented shimmery red-orange. The color is true to what you see in the tube, which can be varied just a bit if you layer it over lipstick. But I prefer to wear it on it's own. The formula is very moisturizing, a bit sticky - not bad, but I almost think it is necessary to get the high shine of this gloss. And it is very long lasting. It holds up through eating and drinking quite well. And it has a yummy, slight vanilla taste.

Luxe Lip Gloss comes in a total of 15 colors from the clear to Trust Fund to the very chocolate berry in Tyrant. Next up on my list to try is Preppy Punk which looks like the perfect shimmery cotton candy pink. It retails for $26 and is available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom's and Bloomingdales.
