Amazing subtle tint/gloss
June 28, 2018
DO BUY IF: you're looking for a subtle, slightly glossy, natural-looking tint and don't mind reapplying every 4 hours
DON'T BUY IF: you're looking for a bold, matte, long-lasting lip product
After looking at swatches online, I ordered this product in both Juicy Apple and Juicy Orange.
Juicy Apple looks a pinkish toned red on your lips and is quite cool toned. Juicy Orange looks like more of a dark orange red. Both apply in the same way.
Although they are called a gloss, I would say they are closer to a tinted lip balm. They are definitely not like normal lipsticks, instead providing a sheer, slightly glossy layer of colour. They will look different on everyone, depending on your natural lip colour. This is an advantage in my opinion though, as it makes the product wearable and subtle, and is exactly what I was looking for.
They feel moisturising and don't leave your lips dry/cracked. I haven't had properly cracked lips to apply them onto, but they haven't accented any dry areas so they might work surprisingly well in the winter.
They fade after about 3/4 hours (less if you eat/drink a lot), but do so subtly and don't crack/look bad.
Packaging-wise, they look adorable. They have wind up tubes, but I can't make mine wind down so bear that in mind when you wind them up
