vbeauté is, without question, a fantastic skincare line that makes high quality very effective products. I have tried every single product that they make, and can honestly say without hesitation that this is an amazing luxury line.
Lip Spread Anti-Age Tinting Lip Gloss is a wonderful lip gloss that protects the lips while simultaneously hydrating them. The formula is concentrated- therefore a little goes a long way. It is unbelievably comfortable on the lips, is hydrating, has anti-aging ingredients, and is completely non-sticky. I find that I am able to get several hours of wear out of the gloss itself, but it leaves a lovely stain behind that lasts for another 3-4 hours on me. That said, I tend to reapply lip glosses to retain the shine. I love the fact that your own body chemistry dictates the color of this gloss-- making it a bit like a mood ring for the lips. On me Lip Spread is a lovely shade of pink- as shown in my arm swatch below. As a huge fan of pink lip glosses, I was elated by the shade.

According to Julie Macklowe (Founder and Owner of vbeauté),
"...I do love Lip Spread and wear it every day. Since I’m slightly addicted to lip gloss, I made sure that ours had all the right elements. Lip Spread actually goes on clear, but changes to a lovely pink color after you apply it. It has vBotanicals that react with the natural pigments in your skin, and bring out a color that is all your own. The gloss actually looks different on everybody."
Macklowe posits that, "staying true to our focus on anti-aging products, Lip Spread has our BioCellular Peptide to get rid of those unwanted lines and wrinkles. Not to mention, Cherry and Pomegranate fruit extracts keep your smile looking silky smooth by hydrating your lips. Most importantly, the gloss feels lightweight and isn’t sticky—I didn’t want a gloss that my hair would stick to!"
The gloss turns a lovely shade of pink when combined with my body chemistry.
I was delighted that even once the gloss wore away, that it left behind a gorgeous stain!
