I was quite thrilled to receive a Sunday Riley Sheer Impact Lip Gloss in my Barney's gift with purchase bag last weekend. I have been exploring the Sunday Riley line lately, and have been fairly impressed by both the blush and primer. I have also been enjoying a couple skin care items I purchased from the line. The Sheer Impact Lip Gloss in Beach Front, however, left no impact upon me whatsoever. What is a beautiful peachy beige color with faint microshimmers in the tube translates to a clear finish on my lips. I much prefer my glosses to have some color and pigment in addition to providing a glossy finish. I guess that is because I like to have the option of wearing my glosses alone or with lipstick. While the gloss isn't overly sticky, which is nice, I don't see much point in applying a clear gloss either.
Best Things in Beauty has featured another shade from the line, called Chameleon. It is also too sheer for my taste. Chameleon does have a more noticeable shimmer.
Sunday Riley Sheer Impact Lip Glosses retail for $28.00 and are available at Barney's. I can't speak for the rest of the shades in the line, so unless you don't mind a very sheer gloss, I would recommend trying before buying.
