Does Ioni Cosmetics Fanciful Lipgloss Delight or Disappoint?

I have another installment of my exploration of Ioni Cosmetics. Or as I affectionately call it "Pretty stuff only me and two other people can find". Today, I will review Ioni Lipgloss in Fanciful.

So far, I've been pleased with the quality of Ioni Cosmetics.  In fact I ran back to the store and bought up 3 more lipsticks after trying Drama, which I reviewed here.  Now, glosses are not a hot product for me.  I love how they look on other people, but I just find them to be rather high maintenance.  That won't stop me from trying them out now and again, just in case I find one that stands out. So, is this my lucky day?

Fanciful is a rosey hot pink non sticky gloss.  No sparkles or shimmer to speak of.  Just a rosey wash of color.

Fanciful is what I would call medium sheer.  It gives you a deep glossy tint, but never comes close to opacity.  For a non sticky gloss, this held up remarkably well.  2 hours with minimal bleeding, the glossy shine is essentially gone after and hour or so.  You can layer this over a liner or lipstick for a more dramatic look, or keep it sheer for a soft summer lip.

Final Thoughts

Nothing about this lipgloss drives me wild or turns me off.  It's afforable and a great value for the money. My Ioni display only had 4-5 colors of gloss, so the selection isn't mind blowing, but they have the essentials covered.  Ioni Cosmetics are still tough to find.  I've attempted to contact them about their current distribution and I will let you know when I learn more.  For right now, check your local stores and keep an eye on Cherry Culture.  They carry LA Splash, which shares a parent company with Ioni Cosmetics.

Where to buy:  I found mine at a local pharmacy.
Price: $1.99


  1. This lipgloss is gorgeous on you! Can't wait to hear what you find out about distribution!

  2. I found this for $2 at a Fred's in Alabama. I love the dolly color. Now that I live in Minot North Dakota, I cannot find it. Totally bummed they don't sell it online.
