And it’s a lip gloss, because I am just lame like that but I have heard that this brand can be very hit and miss and the gloss was the only item on the display that I had heard rave reviews about. Lip glosses are surprisingly hard for brands to do in my opinion. You have your sloppy, sticky, goopy mess of a gloss, glosses or the gritty gloss, the runny gloss – there is a surprising amount of variety when it comes to glosses. I am not a gloss gal per say but I do wear them when I get a hankering. There were three shades, I chose Champagne Glam as the other two were a bit brown for my complexion. There isn’t much pigment but the gold flecks are a lot of fun and it looks really juicy on the lips, I overall enjoy the finish and wear.
The tube is pretty standard plastic, basically what one would expect from a $5 product but it doesn’t feel overly cheap. I like the doe-foot, it’s easy to use and has a nice curve to it. The formula is more lightweight than I was expecting and though it is packed with glitter, it doesn’t have any grittiness to it. The smell is kinda’ minty but with a hint of something citrusy that I can’t quite put my finger on. It does tingle at first which one would expect from a plumping gloss but this only lasts a couple of minutes at most. I really like the glitter and the shine but I don’t think it does much in the plumping department. I think it’s a very nice gloss formula though and I am definitely going to continue using it during the summer. I would love to see more colours in the peach/nude range.
It’s a lovely little product as far as gloss goes 🙂 Thanks for stopping by <3
