I bought this gloss/stain a little while ago but never really got a chance to review it. I was intrigued with the idea of a gloss and stain altogether so I wanted to give this a shot. This product released earlier this year along with the notorious Color Tattoo cream eyeshadow. I don`t remember exactly how much I paid for this but it was a bit pricy, I think it retails for about $8.00.
I find the tube rather bulky and I didn`t really like that.
10.5 mL or .35 oz
The applicator is oval shaped and has this little dent in the middle that holds a decent amount of product that you can apply over your entire lips without having to dip back into the tube.
There are a few shades available and I picked the lightest color, which I find still a little too dark. Pink Plush is a reddish strawberry pink with some shimmer. On the swatch above, I wiped the gloss with a tissue after 30 seconds of application so that you get an idea of how the stain looks like.
I think it looks nice as a gloss.
Here`s the stain I was left with after 8 hours of wear. It looks somewhat natural.
This product claims to last up to 10 hours. The gloss fades after 2-3 hours. But the stain is pretty long lasting. It feels comfortable for the first couple hours but after the gloss fades, my lips start to feel dry.
This gloss has a fruity scent that I find a little strong and lingers for a while. The scent doesn`t bother me but some people might not like.
What annoys me about this gloss/stain is that the color doesn`t fade evenly. If you look at my close up swatch on my lips. The stain looks blotchy and that may be in part because it was once a gloss so the blotches looks like left over gloss.
I like the fact that is is long-wearing but the blotchiness drives me nuts. I wished these came in lighter colors because I have pretty pale lips and I prefer more subtle colors for every day wear. For this product, I like the pigmentation of the stain over the lipgloss. I don`t plan on repurchasing these though. My rating 5/10.
Have you tried these? If yes, what do you think of them?
