Review | Philosophy Lip Shines

Philosophy Lip Shines in Cinnamon Buns, Coconut Frosting, Melon Daiquiri, Senorita Margarita, Raspberry Sorbet and Vanilla Birthday Cake

Here are 6 new flavoured lipglosses from Philosophy that smell as good as their namesakes.

Philosophy Lip Shines in Vanilla Birthday Cake, Raspberry Sorbet, Senorita Margarita, Melon Daiquiri, Coconut Frosting and Cinnamon Buns Open

Free from parabens and phthalates, they are formulated with sunflower seed oil and Vitamin E to hydrate dry lips. I won’t say they’re moisturising, exactly – they actually feel sticky like MAC Clear Lipglass but are just shy of that thick texture. Such glosses actually have a tendency to dry out the lips but I wouldn’t use them on their own: They work better as translucent toppers to enhance lipsticks and lipstains; the base products protecting the lips, while the glosses offer a laminated finish.

Philosophy Lip Shine Swatches

Here are swatches of Cinnamon Buns, Coconut Frosting, Melon Daiquiri, Senorita Margarita, Raspberry Sorbet and Vanilla Birthday Cake.

Yummy to look at and so delicious-smelling! I like how their tints match their food/beverage inspirations and though I’m not one for foody scents, their authentic juicy-licious scents appeal to me. To amp up the shine, they are infused with copious shimmer. I’m particularly fond of the margarita one with its citrus fragrance and lime sparkles. :)

I don’t have their retail price but you can find them at Tangs Orchard, as well as at Sephora.

      Hi Jen,

      These are so pretty to look at and smell lovely. I only wish they were more emollient. That said, at least they don’t migrate easily!

    I bet they smell delicious! Senorita Margarita would be great over a dark lipstick.

      Hi Sam,

      They smell terrific! And now that you mention it, I’m picturing it over a plum lippy. What a lovely combination. <3
