Rain Cosmetics Gloss of Fame

You all know by now that I love trying out new brands of makeup I’ve never tried before. So when I was contacted by Rain Cosmetics, I jumped at the chance to try them out. Rain Cosmetics is based in Las Vegas, and the inspiration from Vegas strip is apparent in the products. The packaging is shiny and chic without being gaudy, and many of the products have Vegas-themed names. It’s a lot of fun, especially if you love the glam experience of Las Vegas. I also just recently heard that Rain Cosmetics is the official cosmetics sponsor of the Miss USA! How cool is that? Starting in June, Rain Cosmetics has offered to share their tips & “get the look” info as they work with the Miss USA contestants. 
The packaging reminds for these glosses me of the lights of the strip and the fountains in front of the Venetian. The glosses have a very nice (no splaying) brush applicator. The color I tried is called Wine Newton. All of the shades are puns of people who have performed on Vegas. The other shades are Praline Dion, Presley Pink, Raisin Copperfield, Peach Midler, and my personal favorite, Berry Manilow. The gloss photographs a bit darker than it is when I take pics of it in the tube. I tried to color-correct to fix it, but I had difficulty. It photographs much more accurately when swatched. Think of it this way – this particular wine is more of a blush wine than a red wine, more the color of white zinfandel – 
Personally I think this take on a wine color is actually quite a bit more universally flattering, and it made this gloss an everyday wearable favorite as opposed to a bold color I only wear on certain occasions. The formula itself is very nice. It’s not sticky at all, and very moisturizing. It’s very high shine and keeps my pucker looking plump and glossy. Pigmentation-wise these are on the sheerer side. This just adds an overall tint and brightness to my lips, maybe making them look a little pinker, but not a huge difference. The brightness I’m sure comes from the beautiful multi-dimensional shimmer. It does not translate to glittery lips by any means, but just gives the color more depth.
And of course, swatches! I encourage you to click to view full size to really see all the pretty sparkles.
Here’s a (sort of blurry) shot that shows more of the multicolored shimmer pretty well…
Rain Cosmetics Gloss of Fame retails for $18. It is available at their website, or at select stores (mostly in Las Vegas but not all – check here for store locations). You can also follow @Rain_Cosmetics on Twitter.
