Review & Swatchfest: Secret Agent Beauty Secret Lip Affair in Pretty Pink Provocateur


Secret Agent Beauty Secret Lip Affair in Pretty Pink Provocateur 

Secret Agent Beauty has two lip lines: Kiss-Kiss Rendezvous and Secret Lip Affair. They also have an awesome ambigram for a logo, but that's neither here nor there. I've already reviewed a shade from the Kiss-Kiss Rendezvous line - lip products that fall more into the "treatment" category for their ingredients like peptides and collagen. Now it's time to delve into the Secret Lip Agent side of things and see what their lip glosses are like.

Described, as a "Level 2 Plumping Gloss", Secret Lip Affair glosses contain Aloe, Vitamin E, and a next-level plumping agent: Peppermint. Aloe and Vitamin E will nourish and moisturize lips, naturally making them fuller (like a grape versus a raisin), but peppermint will actually irritate lips to give them a bee-stung look. If you are used to plumping lip glosses, this formula will feel no different, but it's definitely obvious that peppermint is in the mix. The peppermint is also evident in the taste, but not so much in the scent. Instead it smells sweet, but not like any food or flower I can place - definitely not bad though! The texture is smooth and non-sticky, as well as thinner than most glosses.

Pretty Pink Provocateur is a subtly shimmery, brown-based pink that is relatively opaque, but turns out to be a "my lips but better" color on me so you can't really tell. Still, I really like the color and, believe it or not, have yet to find a lipgloss shade like that - most are too dark, too sparkly, too clear, etc. The color and texture of the gloss itself doesn't last long, but the minty effect and moisturizing benefits do.

Secret Lip Affair in Pretty Pink Provocateur retails for $16 in the old packaging on the Birchbox website, or $18 in the new packaging on Secret Agent Beauty's Facebook page.
