The teeth brightening lip gloss from Whitening Lightning called Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss has a lot going for it, most notably the packaging. It is also on sale big time – normally this high concept lip gloss goes for a spendy $38 per tube, but right now it is on sale for $24 each or you can get three for $45. That’s just $15 per lip gloss, which makes this very fancy lip gloss way more affordable.
A huge factor in the appeal of these lip glosses is the packaging. The lip gloss lights up for ease of application, and the tubes have a mirror on the side so you can see what you are doing. At first I thought it was kind of gimmicky, but I am amazed at how convenient and helpful these features are!
Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Gloss has the best packaging I have ever tried in a lip gloss. Period.
The lip gloss itself is excellent. The colors I tested were flattering with shine and a nice amount of pigment. They have wonderful slip and feel great on the lips, and the formula includes collagen peptides to help plump the lips without that stinging sensation.
There are eleven different shades available and I tried Nude, Salmon, and Vilu.
NUDE is Whitening Lightning’s best-selling shade. It’s a creamy peachy-beige opaque gloss with a lot of shine. It’s great for a casual look or paired with dramatic eyes.
SALMON is an opaque peach with orange undertones It is a pretty, girly shade that I reach for over and over. I know this is going to be my go-to gloss in the spring when I start faux-tanning again.
VILU is definitely more for the ‘whitening’ than for the color, which is a sheer shimmery plum. It’s great for a natural look and I love it over matte lipsticks for a little more depth.
All of the shades are designed to make teeth look brighter and whiter, which certainly can’t hurt! There are several other fun looking shades that I am dying to try, like Bahama Exotic, an opaque creamy pastel purple, Borneo Exotic, a rich full coverage black gloss, and Phuket Exotic, a creamy opaque white gloss.
Overall, the packaging is amazing, the lip gloss is terrific, and the sale price is excellent. So what are you waiting for? Head on over to Whitening Lightning to check out the Color Your Smile lip glosses! - Lisa
