Songbird

Lisa Eldridge Songbird Gloss Embrace Lip Gloss ($25.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark, peachy coral with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had semi-sheer pigmentation, which was as described, and on my lips, it tended to look more brownish than coral (and it may look different on you as a result).

The texture was smooth, lightweight, and creamy with more of a gel-like feel, as it was plusher, non-sticky, and very comfortable to wear. The issue I had was that it was more prone to gathering around and emphasizing texture imperfections on my lips as well as getting into my deeper lip lines. It lasted well for three hours and felt moisturizing while worn.

Formula Overview

$25.00/0.15 oz. – $166.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be a “medium to high pigment gloss” (depending on the shade; most are “medium” pigment) that leaves lips feeling “soft as silk” and hydrated. The consistency was more like a creamier gel, so it was comfortable, spreadable, and felt cushiony on my lips without being tacky or heavy. The coverage varied from shade to shade but ranged from medium to opaque but tended to be in line with how each shade was intended to be.

The glosses applied fairly evenly with minimal settling into my lip lines–the kind that is visible in the close-up photo but not in person. There’s a lot of shine to them, which gave the illusion of slightly plumper lips, and it seemed a touch smoothing over time (an hour or longer). The formula was really comfortable and hydrating to wear, and it was one of the more hydrating formulas I’ve tried in awhile. There was no fragrance or taste.

Delilah

Lisa Eldridge Delilah Gloss Embrace Lip Gloss ($25.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and barely-there pearl suspended in a cream base. The texture was lightweight, smooth, and like a creamy-gel–plush without being tacky–and applied evenly to my lips. It had semi-sheer to medium coverage, as marketed, that stayed on well for three and a half hours and felt hydrating over time.
