Three Custom Color Specialists’ Shimmering Lights Lipsticks are turning 10 years old! Originally launched in 2001, these sparkling and soft lipstick shades were inspired by the celestial sky, sparkling water and the brilliant cityscape of Hong Kong, according to the company. This season, 10 Shimmering Lights shades are available in a slim, convenient palette ($45) equipped with a lip brush and mirror, perfectly purse-sized for women on the go!
Created in the brand’s award-winning sheer lipstick formula, each shade in the Shimmering Lights Palette is highly moisturizing with buildable color and smooth shimmer to create an eye-catching fullness. Colors featured fall in both the Warm and Cool categories: Cool Aura (peach), Cool Sunrise (russet), Cool Galaxy (mauve), Cool Heavens (coral) and Cool Twilight (burgundy); Warm Aura (peach), Warm Sunrise (russet), Warm Galaxy (mauve), Warm Heavens (coral) and Warm Twilight (burgundy).
The most wearable hues for me were Cool Galaxy (Mauve) and Warm Twilight (Burgundy), surprisingly fall in both the Cool and Warm families. The lipsticks consist of a strong pigment but have glossy and lightweight feel with no aftertaste.
The palette itself is smaller than expected but the size is very portable. Also, a dual ended lipbrush might keep the colors more true—however, they all blend together effortlessly for a multi-dimensional look.
