Redpoint cosmetics has a number of interesting and high quality product. I was sent a sample of their Volumizing Lip Gloss, and while I didn’t see any signs of plumping from it in the traditional, make your lips tingle sense, I did find it to be OK as a standard gloss.
Redpoint’s gloss is on the thicker side, with a high amount of pigment. So the color is quite good with it. I reminds me a lot of the thicker MAC lipglasses, but Redpoint doesn’t have that initial stickiness that MAC sometimes has.
Redpoint calls the gloss volumizing, but this isn’t really a plumper as far as I can tell. At least it doesn’t work on the concept of adding irritants to swell the lip. Instead, its concept is based on pigments and light reflectors to create an appearance of fuller lips and the addition of general anti-aging ingredients–something I appreciate in a lip product.
I tried a nude/pink shade that worked OK with my pale skin, but lacked color for my tastes. So, I was happy with it, but I would love to more shades in this gloss. It is one I would most certainly buy in additional shades that had a bit more color to them. If you are looking for a really light shade nude gloss though, the light Redpoint shade may be a good one to try.
