Alright I had to post this one as soon as the glosses came in, because I wonder if there are other women (and guys) out there who covet these lipglosses but don't want to pay $22.00 each for them until you read more about how they work. So, here's the lowdown- Lorac has these uh-may-zing looking lip glosses called Multiplex 3D Lipgloss in 6 shades. Multiplex to me means lots of movie screens, so I guess it's the Lorac 'Red Carpet' spin they put on things for this product name. But to me, I grew up in an area where we had a ton of automated car washes called 'Red Carpet' so every time I hear that I picture movie stars toolin' through a car wash. Had to be there, I guess. They are supposed to be 3D looking, but to my eyes, they just have killer color shifting- but I can't say I'm seeing them in 3D. Oh marketing ploys, I love you.
Here's the skinny on the glosses (while I listen to 311's 'Amber'):
$22.00 each gloss or I recommend the duo set, you get 3D and 4D for $28.00, much better deal. However, they're on sale for $11.00 if you hurry!
Lorac's website describes them as thus:

3D is this beautiful honey brown color with rose duochrome and flecks of violet, copper, and pink. It's my favorite. I'd been lemming Vivid (porn star pink and lavender flecks) but once I saw 3D, we bonded and I had to own it. So I got a two-fer set on Ebay that I'm assuming came from Ulta at one point.

Above is 3D first photo, natural indoor light, second is with flash. Hardly can tell the difference, but the gloss is super gleamy. I'm calling it my Best Find of 2011 so far. I'll do a post in a few months on my Best of. Or maybe a Monthly Faves? What do you guys think. I'll go with what you suggest.
Would I buy these glosses or use them? Yes, not for film (too glittery) but this could be a great bride choice or perfect for thin lips that need some sparkle. Have you tried these? If not, do- I think you'd really get a lot of fun out of wearing them. I know they're the prettiest glosses I own. Have a great day and I like Thursdays because the trash man comes and for some weird reason, I love having an empty garbage can in my garage. So I'm all pleased over it right now. Weird, I know.
Have a great day,
