One of my lovely sponsors, Justina, contacted me to review a product and help host a giveaway with her! Not only was I going to get to play with a fun lipgloss, but today she is giving away 25 of them! Yep, that’s right!
So, what’s this product, you ask? It’s the Beauty for Real Light up Lip Gloss. This is the shade “Kiss Me.”The lip gloss is described as:
“It’s loaded with PLANT DERIVED antioxidants like green tea and grape seed extracts to deliver outstanding regenerative properties and ANTI-AGING capabilities, as well as aloe vera and avocado oil which are full of essential vitamins, are antibacterial and highly emollient. Our light up lip gloss has a super moist, silky feel on the lips, it’s LIGHTWEIGHT, comfortable, not sticky or tacky, yet is long wearing. They contain a groundbreaking lip plumper which feels COOL and REFRESHING when applied. Marine collagen infuses lips with plumping benefits, leaving lips FULL and LUSCIOUS. We have created a super high tech package with a convenient mirror on the bottle and an LED light in the lid that illuminates lips when applying, for an easy, PERFECT APPLICATION on the go! LED lights are easily turned on and off with the button on the lid and can also be used as a mini flashlight in your handbag, at a dim lit restaurant or in your car!” –via
I’ve never heard of Beauty For Real before this, and upon some research, this is a company that doesn’t sell tons of different products, but rather focuses on a few and packaging them in a way that is fun and utilizing technology. They claim to have a “straightforward, modern approach” to beauty. I actually appreciated the fact that it was key products that they focus on.
So, why “light up lipgloss”? Well, my friends, it actually has LED lights in the applicator! Check it out! I dimmed the lights so you could see it well.
And then there’s a mirror on the packaging which makes the lip gloss super convenient to apply anywhere. While I am not much of a “going out at night” kind of gal (sometimes having a little baby can limit that kind of activity), I really think it would be great for those kinds of things!
At first I really thought this product was going to be very “gimmicky”, and the light would be a bit unnecessary. But the more I used it the more I started to love it, especially in dimly lit areas. And it’s quite a conversation starter. Everyone who I’ve showed this to has been like “Wow! That’s awesome! Where’d you get that?!”
Oh, hello there, lips. That’s a close up. Whoa. Anyway, I love the color of the gloss. I love the tingly-mint plumping properties. And it’s truly a great gloss. It’s not super duper shiny (as you can probably tell), which I like, and not very sticky. It’s pretty much everything I look for in a lip gloss, and then some. It retails for $22, but I have seen lip glosses that are at the same price point that don’t have cool LED lights, so there. Neener neener.
So have I sold you yet? Because 25 of you can win one! Yep, that’s right! 25!! The company is requiring an email address to sign you up for their newsletter, but that’s easy to opt out of if you do not care to continue it. Enter below using the Rafflecopter widget.
