Here’s another product review on one of the things I got
when my lola attempted to shop for my
makeup. I’m no beauty brand guru and this particular brand right here,
Prescriptives, is actually a brand I’ve never heard of before. I also don’t know
where and how nanay came across this
brand. And as I tried to look for this brand’s site, I couldn’t find it so I’m
guessing it’s not as famous as other US-based brands. Anyway, I love my lola
for trying to shop for me. If not for her, I will not be able to try out unique
brands.
Let’s jump into the review, shall we?
Prescriptives lip glosses come in a small 0.3 ounce
transparent plastic tubes and doe foot applicators. Though I’m not really sure
if the actual-sized product also has the same packaging. But as far as
trial-sized tubes go, I can say that applicator tends to get an overwhelming
amount of clumped up product and the size of its handle makes it fairly hard to
control, being too short and all. But I guess this isn’t the same for the
full-sized product as I expect the packaging to be bigger. Thus, a longer
handle.
Eclipse, Gutsy, Icy & Deep Space.
Moonbeam Reflective
Gloss in Eclipse & Deep Space
Like the color seen from the tube, Eclipse is a sheer nude
golden color with silver and bronze shimmers that make it come across as a bit
champagne-y.  Its color is not too over
the top for any event and would really compliment older girl’s formal looks. Deep
Space
’s color, on the other hand, is rather deceiving when judged from
the packaging alone. It looks a lot like a striking super dark purple but when
swatched, it’s more of a deep burgundy shade. Dark, yes, but still very
wearable.
Colorscope Lip Gloss
in Gutsy & Icy
Gutsy actually reminds me so much of Benefit Cosmetics’
Posetint. They both have this subtle baby pink shade that’s really pretty and
cute. Of all the four shades, I’d say that this one is best for everyday use
for a girl of my age. It looks natural and creamy on the lips. Icy is a like a clear lip
gloss showered with white and purple glitters. Come to think of it, it’s a lot like Sally
Hansen Lipnotic Gem Gloss in Precious (Read
review HERE).

SWATCHES:

To be perfectly honest, I have no idea what the difference Moonbeam
Reflective Gloss and Colorscope Lip Gloss exactly is. Because based on what I
observed, in terms of consistency, texture and lasting power, they’re all the
same. Although in terms of finish, Gutsy is very different as it has a creamier,
almost-milk-lip-tint feel and finish
while the other 3 are shimmery and glossy which has the tendency of making my
lips look more full and plump. Generally, all four have decent staying power
and great color payoff; pigmented but not too much to the point that I can’t use
it over my lipstick. Also, they’re not as sticky and heavy like other glosses
so I don’t really mind wearing them.
Overall, I like all four shades BUT I don’t think I’ll be
buying the full size. Only because I still have A LOT of lip products to finish
and I don’t need to stock up on more lip glosses. If, by any chance, I finish
every single tube I already own, I’ll think about buying Deep Space and Gutsy.

Have a blessed Sunday!
