Maybelline High Shine Glosses Swatches | Review

In Lips, Maybelline by Angie Canning

The newest addition to Maybelline’s lip product line this season is their High Shine Gloss collection.  I purchased five to share with you, and I apologize greatly for spoiling it here (okay, not really)…but I think these have got to be my favorite drugstore glosses by far!

I am very impressed with these High Shine glosses by Maybelline.  The shine and pigmentation and color range is very excellent, and I love the packaging as well – so chic!  These glosses aren’t particularly gooey or sticky at all, and actually feel rather light on the lips.  I find that I can get about two hours of wear before needing to reapply, which for a gloss with no staining properties I think it is quite good. The scent is very faint and slightly sweet, but pleasant, and the doe-foot applicator makes it easy to apply.

All in all there are a total of twelve shades in Maybelline’s High Shine Gloss collection, and I chose the following:
Almond Crush – a frosty light pink shade with shimmer bits
Luminous Latte – a frosty pale nude shade
Iced Chocolate – a natural nude shade with slight shimmer bits
Mocha-mazing – a deeper neutral shade with cool shimmer bits
Gleaming Grenadine – a bright red shade with slight shimmer bits

  • Product – 10/10
  • Formula – 10/10
  • Pigmentation – 10/10
  • Longevity – 7/10
  • Application – 10/10

Overall, the combination of the sheen of these glosses, the light feeling on the lips and the shade variation (from frosty to slight shimmer) is what reeled me in.  This gloss as rekindled my lip gloss love for sure!

Where to Buy:, $5.49
