Makeup Review: Tallulah Cosmetics Glossary Super Gloss

A few weeks ago, I introduced you to Glossary, a line of lip glosses from Tallulah Cosmetics. I've since had the pleasure of trying some, and I have to say, Glossary stands out even among the many lip glosses I sample every week, and it fulfills all of the promises it puts forth.

This soothing, sunscreen-packed gloss ($16) is a great alternative to lip plumpers, which I don't like because they tend to make my lips sting. Tallulah's products simply make your lips appear plumper, using a mineral called mica to reflect light. Though the effect is subtle, it's definitely noticeable. The glosses have a mirror-like surface, forming a shiny rim around the lips for a very pretty effect. For the rest of the details,

Tallulah calls the gloss mildly flavored, but I only noticed a very light and pleasant scent, and the texture is velvety and non-invasive. Glossary comes in seven shades, and I prefer the lighter colors, like My Yacht or Yours and Love Me Ginger (pictured), because they allow a larger margin of error in application.

The only thing I wish were different about Glossary is that the mineral makeup were made from more natural ingredients. Aside from the mica, it's mostly full of the usual chemicals. But that is a small gripe, and it's certainly not enough to keep Glossary out of my regular rotation.
