Cosmedix Lumi Crystal Liquid Crystal Lip Hydrator

Cosmedix Lumi Crystal Liquid Crystal Lip Hydrator. What a long name for a lip gloss! I won this gorgeous gloss in a competition a few years ago. If I hadn't there's no way I'd own it as it costs $99. Yes, that wasn't a typo, it's a $99 lip gloss. Crazy.

$99 for 4mls of product. Or, if you live in the US it's only $38 which is much more reasonable.

Here's what Cosmedix has to say about Lumi Crystal Liquid Crystal Lip Hydrator: Lumi Crystal instantly transforms the look of lips and deeply conditions for a rejuvenated, softer-looking pout. Formulated with a 90% pure liquid crystal base and a plumping peptide, this indulgent Liquid Crystal Lip Hydrator delivers a burst of hydration to dry, dull lips, sealing in long-lasting moisture with a high-shine finish. Unlike a basic balm or gloss, this prismatic iridescent lip topper also helps soften and plump the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Wear it alone or over your favourite lipstick for a barely-there, light-reflecting finish that leaves lips looking outrageously radiant and fresh.
For $99 I also expect it to make me coffee.
But, enough about the price. What's the gloss like? It's lovely. It has a gorgeous luminescent glow that looks different according to the light. It switches between a luminous pink, green, gold and pear. The formula is super hydrating and feels like a lip balm.Texture wise it's quite light so only lasts around an hour before I need to reapply.
It has a light, fruity scent with no flavour. The packing is what you'd expect from a $99 lipgloss, substantial, well made and pretty. 

It work well on it's own and looks amazing over lipstick, especially dark colours.

Whilst I won't be repurchasing this any time soon, it's been a pleasure to use.
