There’re 2 shades in the collection, Endless Kiss and Timeless (not shown).

 

Endless Kiss is a gorgeous coral pink that’ll look great on any girl.

 

The packaging is really simple, just a tube and a applicator.

But this applicator is not just any applicator. The flocked tip is angled so it better fits the shape of the lips.

It also picks up enough product that’s good for the entire lips.

Also the coral pink shows its subtle gold shimmer in the sun.

You probably think they did a bad job on the printing as some of the letters are fading. That’s where they had the expiration date engraved if you can see.

The pigmentation is sheer while it does add a natural glow to the lips. Also note this lip gloss has a slight candy scent that you can barely tell once applied.

My thoughts about smashbox IN BLOOM Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss with SPF 15 in Endless Kiss


– The fainted sweet candy scent is subtle and pleasant.
– The angled sponge applicator works great in picking up just enough gloss for a one coat application.
– Almost non sticky though it’s a little thick in texture.
– It’s super moisturizing and does not dry out the lips.
– The lasting power is phenomenal for a lip gloss, just as the name says.
– SPF 15 sun protection adds a nice bonus for lip protection.

– The coverage is on the sheer side so you don’t actually get the juicy coral shade shows in the tube on the lips.

This is truly a “Limitless Long Wear” lip gloss. I’ve had this on for more than 5 hours and it’s still fresh like I just applied on. There was no fading, no smudging, no drying, NO KIDDING! The gloss glides on easily without feeling sticky and it has that natural flush of color that glows in the Spring. The subtle candy scent doesn’t bother me though normally I prefer scent free lip products. If you want lip gloss that looks natural and lasts, get this!
