Impulse Cosmetics Duo-Chrome lip gloss swatches!

*products in this post were sent to me for consideration and review purposes. All opinions are my own and 100% honest

Good evening Zombies! I hope you're all having a fantastic week.

Tonight, I'm going to show you three new duo-chrome lip glosses from Impulse Cosmetics! Their website sure has grown since the last time I took a look at it. They seem to have a lot more products to offer up!


I received three clam shells with product. The gloss is pretty thick, and stuck to the top of the lids.

The colors are: (descriptions per website)
Venture: Venture is a magenta purple shade with a blue duochrome effect.
Crusade: Crusade is a blue shade with a green duochrome effect.
Endeavor: Endeavor is a rosey pink shade with a gold duochrome effect.

Look at that amazing shift of blue in "Venture". I can't get over just how pretty it is. "Crusade" is a gorgeous blue/green, which swatched really green on my skin but photographed really blue. I had to take a few pictures of the gloss on my lips, to show the true color. "Endeavor" is a really lovely rose gold in my swatches, but once on my lips, it was very sheer. I decided to try these glosses over a darker base color, so I swatched them each over MACS "Cyber" lipstick.

"Cyber" swatches are heart shaped.

The gold in "Endeavor" really shines through on a darker base and "Venture" pops with blue and purple. "Crusade" becomes a richer green with gold peeking through.

Lips swatches. I swatched in both natural light and used the flash. I used a lip brush to apply the gloss.




I received my lip gloss in clam shells, so I believe that would be a "sample" size, which is $2.50 on the website. (Samples come in hinged-lid, "clam shell" jars & contain approx. 1/4tsp of product.) Full sized glosses are $7.50 and come in a 10ml tube with a doe-foot applicator. The was no scent or taste to these glosses and they were a little thicker than I prefer, so, a little of these go a long way. They are gorgeous colors however, especially "Venture". I love how the blue sheen transferred to my lips and showed up in the photos. The gold sparkles in "Endeavor" get a little lost once applied to the lips, but over a darker base color they will pop! "Crusade" is such a unique color in that it really does change color depending on the lighting and I love the gold sparks throughout.

Overall, these lip glosses are fun and unique, like most of the IC products!
