Hello there! I want to chat you through the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in the shade Kristen, which won’t leave you indifferent for sure!
I have a mini of it which is 2ml. The full size tube has 4.73ml. All in all there are 53 shades in the collection, so everybody will find a match.
The list of ingredients for the interested ones:
Polybutene, Triisodecyl Trimellitate, Mineral Oil/Paraffinum Liquidum/Huile Minerale, Mica, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Limnanthes Alba Seed Oil, Octyldodecanol, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Propylene Carbonate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Propylparaben, Tocopheryl Acetate, Fragrance/Parfum, May Contain/Peut Contenir: (+/-) Red 6 (Ci 15850), Yellow 5 Lake (Ci 19140), Blue 1 Lake (Ci 42090), Red 22 Lake (Ci 45380), Red 27 Lake (Ci 45410), Iron Oxides (Ci 77491, Ci 77492, Ci 77499), Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891).
The package is of good quality and it's ergonomic. Personally to my taste the wiper isn’t good as it leaves more product on the applicator than desired.
The applicator is moving and flat on both sides. I find it easy to apply the lip gloss with it, as I don’t face any problems at contouring my lips because of the well-shaped applicator.
The texture of the lip gloss is very thick! It applies with an opaque layer which was rather unusual for me at first, as I prefer a more natural-like finish. But literally within 5-10 minutes it sets on my lips and stops being so “heavy”.
This lip gloss is very comfortable while wear. I appreciate the moisturizing effect it gives to my lips. It’s of average stickiness, which gradually disappears leaving a light muted shade behind. At first it may stain teeth so be careful. It may also feather a little.
The shade is very cozy and autumn-like for me. My lips feel as though covered with a comforter when I wear this lip gloss.

I absolutely recommend this lip gloss for purchasing, as I haven’t discovered any significant disadvantages about it.
