Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss and Vinyl Lip Pencil swatches+review

I put in my first order from Sephora a while back, and I thought I'd show you the two lip products I received. Both are orange :) 'cause, as you all know, that's my favorite color. So when searching out new products, I always check for oranges hahahah

First is the Sephora Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Shimmery Orange Juice. It comes in a tube with an application wand. The wand is rounded, and had no slant at all.


It looks so juicy on the lips! Just the right tint of orange, and it's all gloss! It's not thick or goopy, and it stays in one place pretty well. I didn't find myself having to reapply for a good 4 hours. But I think you can blame thank Joey NY Specialty lipFIT for breaking me of the habit of licking my lips all the time hahaha



Next is the Ultra Vinyl Lip Pencil in Coral Glow. I've never used a lip pencil before, so this was a new one for me - and then cleaning out my makeup, I found TWO lip pencils that I didn't even know I had that I had never used!


 I love the creaminess of this pencil! It is super pigmented and goes on pretty much effortlessly. It only took a couple swipes across my lips to achieve this look, and I think it looks pretty darn good! It's a beautiful color.


So what do you guys think? Have you used a gloss like this or lip pencils? I tell ya, being a beauty blogger has opened up a whole new world for me. I'm learning all kinds of things I never would have even known about! :)

**DISCLAIMER** I was not paid for this review by anyone. I either purchased these products myself or were given gifts from friends . I am not a professional nail tech or make-up artist, nor do I want to be. I'm just someone who enjoys polishing my own nails and experimenting with make-up! :)
