Lancome | Prismatic Plump Lip Gloss: Review and Swatches
New from Lancome comes a range of prismatic and plumping lip glosses designed to give the lips a voluminous, multidimensional look. Formulated with "micronized holographic pearls", the Prismatic Plump Lip Gloss ($31 CAD for 3.2 ml) can be worn alone for a subtle shimmery shine or layered on top of your favorite lipsticks for a transformative effect. I've got review and swatches to share with you today. To read on, click.....

Packaging:
The Lancome Prismatic Plump Lip Gloss comes in a simple but well-made clear acrylic tube paired with a glossy black cap. The doe-foot applicator is flattened on both sides for a smooth application.

Formulation:
Available in eight shimmery shades, the Prismatic Plump Lip Gloss features a non-sticky, lightweight formulation that feels nice and cooling on the lips. While the gloss makes the lips appear smoother and more voluminous, it doesn't actually have a noticeable plumping effect. The formulation is a lot sheerer than expected based on the Sephora online swatches. None of the shades have any base pigment (only shimmer particles), so these are probably best paired with a lip stain or lipstick. See below for a breakdown of the five shades I have here.

01 Effervescent: This is a very pretty lavender shimmer. The shimmers are rather subtle so the gloss looks very natural on the lips.
02 Luminescent: The sheerest of the bunch, Luminescent is a sparse milky gold shimmer.
03 Opalescent: A soft orange shimmer that in no way looks "Opalescent", this shade is comparably more shimmery than the previous two.
04 Crystalescent: This is a very sheer soft milky pink shimmer that should have been named "Opalescent".
08 Passion Glow: Perhaps the most pigmented shade out of the bunch, Passion Glow is still a very sheer rosy coral shimmer with a soft golden sheen.

Overall, this is a nice line of sheer shimmery lip glosses more suitable as a lip topper than a wear-alone lip color. The formulation is lightweight, non-sticky, and fairly hydrating. There's a slight cooling sensation during the first 15 minute of wear but there is no noticeable plumping effect. What are your thoughts on sheer shimmery lip glosses? Wear alone or pair with a lipstick? Share with me in the comments below!
