I have a feeling I'm past the age demographic for this particular LORAC lip gloss. I got a mini Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss as a GWP some time ago, eyed it suspiciously and then decided to wear it occasionally. Just because the color is so pretty and wearable and I couldn't help it- it's too shiny and there's actual glitter in it, but it's fun.
I like makeup artist Carol Shaw's work and the color sensibility of her LORAC brand usually speak to me (her various palettes are great). I still think the whole 3D thing is a bit too gimmicky- "holographic pigments for a multi-dimensional, high-lacquer shine and long-lasting color" simply means glitter, but at least in the case of this bronzed rose color, confusingly also named 3D, the effect is not over-the-top, even though it is, indeed very (VERY) shiny.
The texture is minimally sticky, very moisturizing and not too heavy. It stays in place over naked lips as well as topping a lipstick and adds a lot of life to creamy lipstick formulas. It can perk up the look and make a demure rose shade a lot more glamorous. But the bottom line is that you're still wearing glitter, even if it's a very pretty glittery gloss, so user's discretion advised.
LORAC Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss ($22) is avilable from Sephora and Ulta.
