fenty beauty gloss bomb universal lip luminizer

Happy Review Day, babes!

Are we all shining bright like glossbabes? Or maybe feeling like the only girl in the world? Hopefully not sending out an S.O.S… Do you see what I did there? Yes, no? Either way, I’m here today to tell you all about whether or not Fenty Beauty’s Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer is here to stay or if it needs to take a bow🎶 Oops, I did it again… 🎶

I had a big birthday last year, and now that I am ten years older than when we first met, I am becoming more and more concerned with doing whatever I can to help protect my skin and fight the clock. One of the things I have been doing (aside from being much more diligent about taking makeup off at night and hiding from the sun), is visiting my local med spa for facials every four weeks or so. I grew up in the era where tanner meant better, and we did what we needed to do to get that rosy glow.

Fast forward to 2019, and I am now trying to undo some of the damage that I did when I was younger. I’ve tried a variety of different treatments and one that I have grown to love is dermaplaning.

That night I decided to try their About Face Sheer Shine in Sterling, which intrigued me because of its silvery color, and at $16.00 the price was reasonable for a line that can be pretty pricey.

I had to wait for it to be delivered, which can be avoided if you order online. The packaging is attractive, although a bit reminiscent of Estée Lauder, and I couldn’t wait to try it out.

I really liked the shimmery sparkle it added to my lips, and really enhanced (at least I thought) my natural lip color. It is sheer, so don’t be afraid of the color in the container – you won’t look like the Tin Man, I promise!

Although I liked the color, I didn’t love how it felt on my lips. A little thin, a little gritty, and staying power could have been better. It did, however, look good on top of a red stick that I had. The other thing that I didn’t love was that … keep on reading...
