My High-End Lipgloss Collection and Swatches

Here's just a quick post of my high-end lipgloss swatches. To be honest, MAC makes up for most of my lip products so I feel that it would need to have it's own post or category. I've already posted a post of my MAC lipstick collection and some swatches (by now, I must have acquired a few more already) but I have not done one with the MAC lipglasses.

Unfortunately, some of these high-end glosses were limited edition or discountinued but who knows if you might still be lucky enough to come across them. Nonetheless, I'm throwing it out there just for the love of blogging and because some of these shades are still available.


I listed a brief description of these in order from left to right according to the photos and swatches.

YSL Glosss Pur 49 black (limited edition). I purchased this one from a while back but it's no longer available there. However, when I googled it it seems like you may still be able to find it online. To be honest, I rarely reach for this, lol. I believe most people won't go for this type of shade anyways but I just bought for the quirk of having something unusual. Plus, considering it's the YSL brand and I got it for about half of its retail price, I thought eh why not?!

Josie Maran Natural Volume Lip Gloss Soledad. I got this as part of a value package from Sephora, which I did a review HERE. For lip swatches, you can view it in this post. It is still availabe for purchase if you are interested, you can find it on Sephora's website. This is a sheer coral lipgloss that feels nice on the lips and looks natural. It doesn't last very long unfortunately. To be honest, I wouldn't have purchased this on it's own due to the sheerness and price ($20).
Hourglass Extreme Sheen Siren. For review and additional swatches of this lipgloss, click HERE. This gloss is fantastic! By far, my favorite red. The formula is extremely pigmented, smooth, glossy, and metallic. I have not come across anything like it. I highly recommend if you love bright bold red lips. This shade is a stand out and I have got so many compliments when I wore this. Available at Sephora for $28.00.
Lorac Tie Dye for Gloss Berry Blender (limited edition). This came out with a set of  5 colors I believe and thet set was around $30. It thought it was such a great value deal. They were all pretty pigmented. I only kept this one. The rest of the shades were given as gifts. It has an interesting marble look in the packaging.

Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss Hermetic. I love intense metallic lipglosses because they are hard to come by and really make your pout stand out. I haven't come across anything like this shade either. It's a metallic burgundy plum. Gosh I bought a while back and should've done a review by now but still haven't. This is still availabe at Sephora for $20.00.

Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque Santal 77 (limited edition). I heard through Temptalia that these were being discontinued and I was quite sad when I heard the news because these are amazing! They are technically not lipglosses but more like liquid lipstick. For swatches and review of this shade, please click HERE. Otherwise, this is still available for a limited time on Chanel's website.

Chanel Rouge Allure Lacque Coromandel 72 (discontinued). I guess this is no longer available since I wasn't able to find it on Chanel's website. This is a very pigmented warm red. For additional swatches and review, check out this post.

Have you tried any of these brands? What's your favorite high-end lipgloss?
