29 Cosmetics Dew Grape Seed Age Protecting Lip Gloss SPF 15 in Hang Time and Sparkling Pinot

Whenever I think of Napa, I immediately think of wine from all the grapes! I once read in an article saying that drinking red wine benefits our health and skin. It’s no doubt that grapes or rather grape seeds have something to do with it. 29 Cosmetics of Napa has built an age protecting skin care and color cosmetic line revolving all about the pros of grape seed. Let’s take a look at 2 lip glosses today.

29 Cosmetics Dew Grape Seed Age Protecting Lip Gloss with SPF 15 can be found online at www.29cosmetics.com and Neiman Marcus for $24.00 each. There are 12 shades in total and each one comes in at 5 ml.

The 2 lip glosses featured today will be LG01 Hang Time and LG12 Sparkling Pinot. The lip gloss protects the lips from pollutants that surround us and radicals that are harmful to us. A brief description on the box is stated here:

“Long-lasting anti-oxidant enriched DEW Lip Gloss with grape seed extract nourishes and protects the lips from environmental pollutants and the harmful effects of free radicals. Helps the lips appear smooth and moisturized while visibly easing the signs of aging.”

Hang Time is a cool toned pinkish red with shimmers sporting almost a glow.

Sparkling Pinot is a dark rich crimson red with gold shimmers. The color is a bit more like a true red wine color when compared to Hang Time.

The packaging is designed in a shiny silvery top and bottom with a clear area in the middle telling us how the color looks. At the end of the cap is 29’s guild crest like symbol representing itself. Overall, the design is very sleek, elegant and flawless.

Each of the colors as you can see in the second photo are filled with shimmers. Sparkling Pinot reminds me the most of red wine upon looking at the color. I think it is because of the word Pinot that is stuck in my brain.

The applicator brush inside is very soft and the slanted tip fits the contour of the lips perfectly. It makes application a breeze because it captures enough gloss each time.

The lip glosses run a tad sheer but brings your natural lips in an uplifting beat of vibrant color. Each lip gloss provides hydration with soothing factors. But that’s not all, there are also antioxidant benefits that we mentioned in the beginning of this post. These lip glosses are filled with antioxidants!

Since Valentine’s Day is coming, I figure that nothing beats a swatch in the shape of heart. You also get to see a side by side comparison of both colors. Hang Time is swatched on the left while Sparkling Pinot is on the right. In the second photo, the difference between the shimmers is more visible. Hang Time is a cool toned pink with silver shimmer and Sparkling Pinot is all about gold shimmer in a warm toned wine color.

Just like picking up a fine red wine for Valentine’s, 29 cosmetics lip glosses are something that your loved ones should receive to help them protect their most kissable area, the lips! An added plus to using these are the colors with shimmers providing a luscious look. And most importantly, protecting the lips from harmful environment and nourishing them. Speaking of wine, the scent of these are like sugar and grape added together for wine making. It is subtle but I thought I’d mention it!
