gabriel color lip gloss treatment in ambrosia

While I love a deep, red lip as much as the next girl, I’m much more of a neutral-lippie-kind-of-gal, especially during warmer weather.

I like to be able to swipe, smack and go, yet still look warm and put-together; the best color I’ve found to give my pout a come-hither glow is Gabriel Color Lip Gloss Treatment in “Ambrosia” by Gabriel Cosmetics.

{Gabriel Cosmetics sent me a sample of its Lip Gloss Treatment in “Ambrosia” to review. It retails for $16.75 for a 0.27-ounce tube.}

Ambrosia” has a pinkish-nude base that mimics the natural color of my lips, but amps up the kissability factor with a hint of gold shimmer that catches the light so beautifully that you can’t help but gaze a little longer.

While I’m pretty fair until summer hits, my yellow-undertone skin works well with this neutral, especially when paired with a brighter pink blush. I think “Ambrosia” would look even more beautiful on deeper skin tones — I love a shiny, neutral gloss against mocha skin.

Gabriel Color Lip Gloss Treatment in “Ambrosia” has a medium thickness but isn’t sticky. If you’re a bit heavy-handed with application, though, the color can look a little milky (likely due to the titanium dioxide included for an SPF 8). Layering is key!

Speaking of layering, “Ambrosia” can help you create a dramatic lip when layer atop a deeper color of your choice. Simply dab it in the center of your lips to create an illusion of thickness and depth.

{I would have let Anya use some gloss, but she’s too naturally beautiful.}

I’m looking forward to trying more of Gabriel Cosmetics’ lip glosses — “Nectar” is next on my hit list!

So, bottom line, would I repurchase Gabriel Color Lip Gloss Treatments? Yes! At $16.75 a pop and readily available at Whole Foods, I am going to have to hold myself back from hauling them all!

    Very nice peachy color, looks great with your skin tone. Natural with a litttttlleee bit of pizazz or shine is my deal too! Nice to know they’re in Whole Foods! Kathryne @getunsullied :0)

  • Mademoiselle nature

    Looking very natural! sounds a bit weid but only wear lipgloss while my hair is attached. As it can be windy here, I find very unpleasant to have hair stickking up to my lips! :-( x

    I just cracked up at that last picture with you and Anya.
