Where’s my glitter fiends? You need to grab this for tomorrow, girl! If you’re anything like my glitter loving self then I’m sure you’ll be decked out in glittery eyes or lips for New Years Eve. I went all out with glittery lids last year so I’m bringing in 2015 with blinging lips! One of my sparkling lip choices (you’ll see the other tomorrow) is the CoverGirl Look It’s Lava! Lip Lava Gloss.
Look It’s Lava! is an in your face bright fuchsia with tons of fine blue and purple glitter, lots of sheen and a sweet, candy scent. Like Ooh La Lava, this baby is loaded with glitter so it’s nothing like I’ve ever seen before. Totally unique!
Look It’s Lava! applies smoothly and evenly with intense pigmentation and a slightly thick, tacky texture. I found the brush applicator to be very easy to use as it’s small and flexible. The formula feels a little like MAC’s Lipglass formula but it’s a little more lightweight. I know thick glosses aren’t for everyone for but I really like the Lip Lava formula. It hugs the lips without emphasizing flakes and it doesn’t seem to settle into lip lines either. I did experience a little bleeding and feathering with Look It’s Lava! but it was very slight and easy to manage with a clear lip liner (like Rimmel’s or Milani’s).
Despite the heavy glitter content, Look It’s Lava! is very comfortable to wear. The formula is lightly moisturizing and leaves my lips feeling soft even after it wears off around 3-4 hours later. Even though the glossy sheen doesn’t last long the stain will definitely get you through the day. My lips were still stained a glittery hot pink when I woke up the next morning. It’s a really nice gloss! Probably a little much for the average gloss gal but why not go all out for the New Year?
