Say hello to Allegory Story! I found out about the brand when I came across their page on instagram. Allegory Story is an indie makeup brand based in New York. They just launched two months ago, so they're quite new. The brand produces custom formulated creamy lip gloss, and have 7 shades altogether from their Summer2016 collection. Each of their shades has references to allegorical themes in history and art, which what makes this brand interesting! Their lip glosses are Vegan, Cruelty-free, Paraben free, Phthalate free, and Gluten free.

I'm happy that I managed to get my hands on these lip glosses (thanks to my sister's bf 😉) as they currently ship within the US only. For those who live outside of the US who'd like to own these lip glosses, the brand is planning to expand soon, so keep an eye on it! I love unique and pretty packaging, and Allegory Story nailed it. They have the cutest holographic cloud logo-turned-pattern embossed on the cap, and the cap can be customized! You get to choose between blue or pink cap for each lip gloss. Because of that, I was in a dilemma of choosing the cap color. 😱 I love both, but I decided to get pink caps. The front and back of the box feature a background color based on the cap chosen, so mine's pink. While the side of the box incorporates a checkered background.

I bought 2 shades. Initially I thought of buying Faerie Queene, but I ended up switching it with Botticelli instead. Botticelli is a warm nude, inspired by the Italian painter, Sandro Botticelli. And Wonderland, a pastel purple, which you probably can guess what it's inspired by.. Yup, Alice in Wonderland~ I'm so loving these two shades! Botticelli is such a perfect nude that I can wear anytime on any day. I'll wear Wonderland when I feel like I want to be playful and daring (or mad as they say).

The lip gloss comes with a doe foot applicator, is very pigmented and non-sticky. It's forever summer where I live, so I have put the lip gloss to the test, which I noticed that the lip gloss keeps my lips moisturized throughout the day! Even though it disappear few hours later. Plus, it smells of vanilla, kinda reminds me of vanilla cream buns (just be sure you're not that hungry!). Allegory Story lip glosses are really one of the must have lip glosses for summer. I'm looking forward to see more products from them, and to have international shipping finally available (hope it doesn't cost much though). As for the price, it cost only $15 for each lip gloss. Allegory Story is definitely one of the indie brands to look out for! Take it from Gwen Stefani: What you waiting for? Go check them out and give them some #CloudLove.
