Lipgloss Swatches (16 shades) - Plums and Berries and Everything in Between

Not too long ago I posted lipsticks swatches for shades of plums and berries, you can check it out HERE if  you missed it. Today, I bring you the lip gloss swatches. 

Illamasqua Intense lipgloss Hermetic - a very pigmented burgundy, leaning a bit more brown. Formula is thick and applies a bit unevenly but so gorgeous with that garnet shimmer in it.

Illamasqua Sheer lipgloss Tantrum - a semi-sheer purple-ish pink shimmery gloss.

MAC Dare to Wear lipglass Ban This (limited edition) - thick, pigmented, medium magenta with super sparkly pink and blue shimmers. Ban This was limited edition but Milani Haute Flash in a flash lipgloss is a spot on dupe, which I forgot to include here but it is available at select stores and This is such a sparkly and intense gloss. The one that screams "hey look at sparkly lips" lol. 

Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss Adorned (limited edition) - bright berry pink gel-like gloss with lots of pink and purple shimmers.

Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss Embellished (limited edition) - semi sheer reddish/brown plum color with subtle pink and purple sparkly shimmers.

Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss Bordeaux - semi sheer raspberry or pinkish plum. The color is so close to Embellished but it is just a bit sheerer and pinker.

Maybelline ColorSensational High Shine lip gloss Mirrored Plum - medium pinkish purple color with a nearly opaque coverage when you layer it.

LA Colors lipgloss Blazing Violet - nicely pigmented magenta fuchsia with subtle blue shimmers. Such a lovely color. I think it may be discontinued but you can still find it online.

L'Oreal LeGloss The Queen's Shine (limited edition) - semi sheer fuchsia with subtle shimmers.

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer Galaxy - mauvy plum with a bit of shimmer in it and almost opaque coverage.

Wet N Wild Glassy Gloss A Glass of Shine (limited edition) - It's a dark berry red with pink shimmers. I was so impressed with the pigmentation and the color is just stunning.

Maybelline Color Elixir Raspberry Rhapsody - semi sheer cool tone pink with subtle blue shimmers.

Fyrinnae Lip Lustre Saloon Girl - shimmery burgundy brown. Applies like a gloss but has more of a lipstick finish. I have yet to review it. 

Lime Crime Carousel Gloss Present - a lovely raspberry red with pink shimmers

L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Plum Adagio - a deep plum with purple and brown undertone and subtle pink/purple shimmers. Such a gorgeous color. I'd wear over a dark lipstick for a more intense look.

L'Oreal Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Lip Lacquer Stubborn Plum - semi sheer pink with a hint of violet

My personal favorites are:

Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss Adorned
Maybelline ColorSensational High Shine lip gloss Mirrored Plum 
Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer Galaxy
Wet N Wild Glassy Gloss A Glass of Shine
L'Oreal Colour Riche Extraordinaire Plum Adagio
