Beauty Addicts Play Addict Lip Gloss




I admit that I knew little-to-nothing about Beauty Addicts, a US-based cosmetics company, until a couple of their products landed on my doorstep. It's a small brand, obviously, only available online (beautyaddicts.com), that stresses simplicity and quality ingredients. Sounds good, I think. I also like the fact that the products are made here in the US.

Today we're looking at their Play lip gloss in Addict (Beauty Addicts lip glosses come in a couple of ranges. Play is the newest one and at the moment only includes two shades, this one and Socialite, a light pink). Play Addict is a coppery peach gloss, quite high in shine. It's actually a full-coverage gloss and its opacity is bordering on a liquid lipstick. The texture is quite interesting: it's very thick and dense, but not tacky. I had to get used to it, since just about any other gloss I have feels very light. Not this one. I guess that's why this Beauty Addicts gloss has a slightly longer wear time and less transference than the average lip gloss.

I also liked the nourishing aspect of this Play gloss. It feels more a treatment than a color product, only with some serious level of pigment. Not bad at all, once you get used to the way it feels. I do wish that Play gloss came in more shades. Addict is very summery and nice, but I'd be very happy with berry and a rose. Perhaps in following seasons.

Bottom Line: good, as long as you can deal with the weight of the gloss on your lips.

Beauty Addicts Play Addict Lip Gloss ($17) is available from beautyaddicts.com. The product for this review was sent by PR.
