My Thoughts:

This little lip gloss came into my collection via my Glossybox subscription as a deluxe mini. The full-size has slightly more product in a longer tube, but this little one has plenty on its own while giving me the chance to get a thorough experience of this before I have to decide on repurchasing this or not. I always get a bit more excited when I get makeup products from them because it gives me more creative freedom in the beauty product field compared to hair care or skincare.

There is a citrus scent that turns chemical shortly after it’s applied, then dissipates after a couple minutes. I don’t usually buy lip glosses because I don’t like intense shine on my lips and most lip glosses tend to bleed and feel goopy and sticky which only adds to the distaste I have for the product pool. Since this came in a box with other goodies, I figured I could at least give it a shot and if I didn’t like it for myself, I could always use it in my MUA kit or give it to someone who I know would enjoy it.

Packaging:                                                ★★★★★/5

I love that the tube is mostly clear because it makes it so much easier by saving me time from having to open a bunch of different products to find the color I’m intending to use that day. The rings around the inside of the cap and the top of the inside of the tube feels cheaply made because it gives the feeling of nails on a chalkboard every time I open and close the tube. I adore the leafy design on the top of the handle which gives a simple, yet holistic vibe to the product.

The thin lettering on the side of the brand name is a subtle touch to help their marketing and is resistant to scratching off no matter what it’s rustled with in my bag. The sticker on the bottom seems well-adhered at first, but eventually that sticker’s strength will fade, and it’ll fall off, creating a nuisance of having to remember the name of this whenever I use it. With the soft wand tip, I’m able to make a quick, gentle, and precise applications without any tugging or scratching on my skin.

Performance/Wear:                               ★★★★★/5

This deep magenta color is quite bold, even with a singular swipe around the lips. The company does not play around with their pigment payoff when it comes to this product, yet this stays thick and goopy to the normal lip gloss stereotype. It does provide intense opacity without the need of a lipstick underneath it, but there is still a need for lip liner because it bleeds. Oh, and it stains the skin as well, so you’ll need to apply lip balm or lip liner underneath it to prevent it.

The formula doesn’t ever dry, so it’s able to retain the intense shine throughout the wear time. Caution when drinking or kissing because this will transfer and smudge and since it stains, it makes a worse mess on lighter skin tones than darker ones. It doesn’t seem to moisturize or condition my lips in any way, it simply feels like it sits on my lips the entire time I wear it. At the end of the day, the majority of the gloss is easy to remove, but the stain will stay at least overnight, depending on your skin type, but could be buffed away with a lip exfoliant.

Swatch

There isn’t a feathering issue, and it takes quite some time to fade. If you manage to keep it from smudging and bleeding, it leaves a natural, flush stain that looks nice on the lips and wears well fine like that if you decide not to touch-up or only decide to lightly dab product for a minimal application.

Price:                                                          ★/5

Considering it requires a lip liner, I can’t say I’d recommend this product to anyone or purchase it myself considering better gloss formulas don’t bleed or require the use of other products.
