City Color Cosmetics Glam Gloss in Beige Review, Photos, Swatches — A Modern Mrs.
I feel like I'm on a roller coaster of emotions with these new City Color products. I went from saying "These are great!", to "Eh, not so much", to "HOLY MOLY! These are amazing!", to "Womp womp", and now I'm back to "Eh, not so much" with this Glam Gloss in Beige. Let me begin with the brand's description.
Achieve those luscious lips with Glam Gloss for a maximum shimmer sheen. Comes in 5 gleaming colors with a light weight formula and shimmery texture to add a rich jewel-like finish.
Availability: Select drugstores, citycolorbeauty.com
Pricing: $1.99

The new Glam Glosses packaging tapers toward the end, has a black cap and doe foot applicator. The inner part of the packaging creates a hexagonal appearance, which I thought was kinda nifty. The applicator is on the smaller end as far as doe foot's go, but for my puny pucker, I think it's just right.

There's a sickeningly sweet aroma to Beige... I can't put my finger on it {Because I'm horrible at describing fragrances. Sorry.}, but it's really sweet. It will probably turn a sensitive stomach, but I kind of like it. Crazy, I know. What can I say?

Beige is a really sheer sandy pink, but the silver shimmer throughout is very noticeable, which makes Beige a great layering shade. There's an easy-going shine, as in it doesn't make your lips look lusciously wet, but they aren't flat-looking either. The only trouble to this thin consistency is... it doesn't last. Not even a little. Almost not at all. Similar to the Creamy Lipstick in Soft Pink, this stuff is gone within an hour. And don't even think about trying to take a sip of that latte, because Beige ain't havin' it.

So, as you can see, I'm in somewhat of a conundrum. I like its scent, and the fact that I can wear Beige over any shade of lipstick or lip liner, but this bad boy just won't commit! I'm not one to re-apply any lip color throughout the day. Once my lipstick/gloss/liner has worn off, it's Vaseline or another type of balm from there on out. Now, if you don't mind touching up, and doing it frequently, do pick up City Color's Glam Gloss in Beige, because that shimmer is gawgeous!
