I'm not a fan of gimmicky products. A light blue lip gloss definitely looks like more of a novelty item than a serious beauty tool, but earlier this year I decided to give Alurabliss from Kevyn Aucoin a try because I really love the Liquid Cyber Lip products with their superb texture and healthy boost they give my lips. I also liked the idea of a clear gloss with just a hint of cool cast that can subtly adjust the color underneath.
Alurabliss is a very shimmery sky blue in the tube but it's actually a clear gloss. The blue pigment is not noticeable other than in the way it lends a slightly cool tint to the color underneath, be it your natural lip color or a lipstick. I find the shimmer particles o Alurabliss less intense than in my Kevyn Aucoin Galaxine Liquid Cyber Lip, so I reach for it often either to give my lips a finishing touch or to customize and adjust other colors.
Bottom Line: more than a gimmick.
Kevyn Aucoin Alurabliss Liquid Cyber Lip Gloss ($27) is available from Bergdorf Goodman (in-store only), Barneys (also online) and Dermstore.
