Okay, so this gloss really stands up to its claims. It is most defiantly a non-sticky, super hydrating formula. It has a very thin consistency that is very slippery and smooth. The shimmery glosses are not chunky or scratchy at all. It is defiantly high shine as it claims. There is no off putting taste, but while it does have a scent I don’t find the vanilla cupcake smell off putting or overpowering. Because this is a lip gloss the staying power is not the greatest. It lasts up to an hour or so and if you eat during that time then it will wear off sooner. It will transfer (like all glosses do) so be careful when your lips get close to clothes or fabric. It wears off pleasantly though and leaves a nice stain behind after the shine has worn off or dried down. I think that these formulas will be awesome for all skin types, tones and ages.
I own 3 out of 18 shades and the first is Flaunt. This is a bright fuchsia pink with no shimmer. This color is more prone to bleeding than the browns. The next is Dollface, which is a very wearable everyday nude brown. This one is also shimmer free. The last one is snuggle. To me this one will look best of people with deeper skin tones, but also works for lighter skinned people like me. It is, as you can see, a metallic light brown nude shade.
When it comes to packaging I find that I really like these. The tubes are sturdy clear plastic with gold lettering so you can clearly see the color inside. A bonus is that the caps of the tubes match the color of the gloss. If the gloss has glitter in it, so will the cap of the gloss. The tube of these glosses are bigger than most and contain .14 oz of product which is a good about for such a cheap price. If you are one to just toss your lip products in your purse (like me) then you will find that the lettering on the tubes will wear off pretty easily. I love these cheap glosses and would recommend them to anyone. I would also repurchase them if I ever run out.
Pros: Cheap, Non-sticky, Light and comfortable on the lips, no overpowering scent.
Cons: Because the consistency is so thin and slippery they are prone to bleeding. Lip liner is recommended to keep them in check.
Over all I give these 4 out of 5 because of the tendency to bleed off the lips.
