The two colors I chose were Pumped Up Purple (left) and Coral To The Max (Right)
Let's look at what these lip glosses are supposed to do :
-Adds up to 50% more volume to lips.
-Long wearing, wears up to 5 hours.
-Full, perfect and homogeneous coverage.
Here is swatches of both on my hand
Uhhhhh...I wanted to love these I really did but overall they were an epic fail! Here are the reasons why I do not enjoy these:
1) The applicator is huge. At least 3 times the size of a normal applicator which means you get a lot of product on it. When you pull the applicator out of the tube big goopy strings come out with it. You have to wipe the excess off on the edge which makes a huge mess. Also the applicator makes it hard to apply.
2) The texture. It promises to be non sticky which is false. It is very gooey and sticky and feels like you put honey all over your lips. I could only wear it about a half hour before I had to wipe it off.
3) The smell. It smells like a very cheap lip gloss. It smells like plastic and flowers and it is a strong smell. I could smell it the whole time I was wearing it.
4) I didn't feel a plumping effect. There was no tingly minty feeling like you usually get with plumping lip products. I happen to enjoy that part.
Overall I really didn't like these. I couldn't even stand wearing them long enough to test the 5 hour promise. The color pay off wasn't too bad and I really liked the coral color but all the other negatives made it impossible to enjoy wearing for me! Have any of you tried these glosses? If so what do you think?
Maybe next time NYC...maybe next time!!
