Dianne Brill Lip Gloss Review, Photos, Swatches, and FOTD

The Muse loves obscure, unique, and interesting brands! She always loves exploring cracks and corners where other makeup addicts fell to look and coming across exciting new items that she's never heard of! She's a beauty adventure on the path to fortune and glory. By the way I don't even know what that means but when Indiana Jones said it, it sounded important and stuff! Shrug!

Behold, new and exciting makeup!

On my quest for fortune and glory I located one of thee cutest brands ever. Girlish, unique, and pretty are just a few words to describe the Dianne Brill Cosmetic Collection!

If you're bored with the same old hum drum counter cosmetics take a voyage through fortune and glory and discover some seriously awesome finds from Dianne Brill Cosmetics. I've been busy playing around with some of her cosmetics lately and all I can say is that I'm extremely pleased so over the next few days you'll be hearing alot of my ravings about the brand and the items they offer.

When I first seen the Dianne Brill Lip Gloss I was left wondering was it a gloss or a chocolate bon bon? Housed in a peach box with a flip top lid this sweet gloss was begging to be used. Flipping open the lid of the box you'll be presented with a cute pot of gloss that lays on a cute pastry cup wrapper! Lift it out and you'll see that the pastry cup invites you to Slip It On! Indeed, the Muse was eager to slip it on at this point.

The packaging and presentation simply screams at my girlish side and I couldn't help but feel excitement at all that cute packaging. The gloss pot itself is a heavy plastic with a silver top and Dianne Brill's cute emblem on top. Packaged with a little lip brush you'll be busy getting your pout nice and glossy in seconds of opening the box!

I tried two of the twenty three shade selections and both were richly pigmented so lip stain or lipstick are completely optional before use. If you like your glosses slippery smooth with plenty of stick and tack this be for you. The gloss lasts all day as the formula must be bullet proof or something of the sort. Aside from MAC Lipglass I haven't run across a gloss that had such a long wear time. The gloss is moisturizing, smooth, and creamy. It applies extremely well and stays put.

The shades I tried were Peekaboo Nightie and Feather Boa. Peekaboo Nightie is a rich dark pink with touches of golden shimmer where as Feather Boa is a Paler Pink, almost light peach in color, with multi-colored sparkles. The glosses had two separate flavors which leads me to wonder if every shade tastes different in the collection!? How fun if that's the case. Peekaboo Nightie is a sweet taste which I can't really put a name to and Feather Boa had more of a citrus taste to it. Both shades were very flattering on my lips but I was loving Peekaboo Nightie best as it gave me that really rich pink pout that I favor!

The formula is loaded with 20% vitamins, antioxidants, and humectants for a healthy and gorgeous pout. The gloss manages to pout my lips up and make them look fuller which was a rather nice effect.

Between the variety, the great formula, and the sweet, girlish packaging I'm unsure what thrills me more about Dianne Brill Lip Gloss! These are totally a Muse Approved for purchase and I highly recommend trying at least one out. The Muse promises soon after you'll be hooked like her.

Truly an interesting and unique beauty find!

Thanks Dianne, the Muse hearts you.

I love the design on the package, cute girl with the stars.

The two shades you chose are freakin' awesome! I love the sparkles in the shades, especially Feather Boa.

Peekaboo Nightie is a great dark pink on you, but OMG the sparkle in Feather Boa is to die for.

OMFG though, I HATE their website design.
And poo, the only store in FL is in Boca Raton, several hours away.

Peekaboo Nightie, Feather Boa, Mermaid Bustier, Bridal Garter, and Padded Push Up are all super pretty to me.

This is an awesome find. Now I must find an etailer :P

I love that Indiana Jones shirt! I have bought 2 recently from Blockbuster b/c they were $5. I didn't see a cool one like this though.
Love the colors, they look great on you. I am looking for a gloss that stays on all day and this seems like it would be a winner!
Where did you get them? How much were they?
