I’m falling hard for LORAC‘s new Multiplex 3D Gloss. At $22US/$29CAD, I really wish I hadn’t seen these in the first place! You’ll have to enlarge the swatches to get my gist; the glitter factor and pigmentation is just stunning. I liked the formula (and the short brush-tip appicator) while swatching, and a friend of mine tells me they wear like a dream.
Quick descriptions of the glosses:
Polished is the sheerest of the bunch; pearlescent salmon-pink shimmer on an almost-clear peachy base.
Cliché looked like your typical baby pink (hence the name?) but actually turned out to be a very pigmented milky pink packed with white-blue shimmer.
3D has a strange brown base, but it’s the most interesting gloss I’ve ever come across. Why? Gold and hot pink reflects, baby!
Vivid is another juxtaposition, but is much less flashy than 3D. Lime reflects on a medium-pink base. Trust me when I tell you it’s fascinatingly pretty!
Intermix, like 3D, is another shade that you’ll either totally love or totally hate. It makes me think of fire with igold reflects on a red-orange base.
So — what do you think?? I’m majorly lemming Cliché and Vivid, but 3D is the one I’m dying to try on.
