I am a bit of a make up addict and so will try pretty much any piece of make up!
This was on the end of a clearance rack in Boots reduced from around £6.99 down to £1.37 and with me never wanting to down an offer like that I decided to pick it up and try it out.
The only colour that they had there was this real candy pink, slightly pale barbie pink colour. It was a nice and pleasant colour, so I had no reason to complain about that. I know that they also sell them in other colours such as clear, glitter, dark pink, light pink and red.
They are purchasable in Superdrug, Boots and Boots online.
The lipgloss itself came with a very large wand which allowed for easy use. It also had a 'brush' end rather than a fixed shape like others.
The brush made it very easy to apply, allowing you to simply sweep it from side to side over the lips.
The gloss itself does not feel sticky or gloopy like others I have tried and you actually only need a very light coverage in order for it to be seen. The colours are quite vivid and bold, though was a little bit lighter than that I saw in the tube. The colour did come out quite subtle, which means that once on it suited my skin much better than I had originally thought it had.
The lipgloss was also very shiny, so if you don't like the 'glossy' lips look, then I wouldn't reccomend this one for use as it does have this very hi-shine look. When first applied it also has this slight tingle to it, though it is not a lip plumping gloss, so I am not sure what it is.
This lipgloss lasts around an hour or 2 once on and I find this a very decent amount of time before needing to reapply.
This is something that I'd reccomend, especially if you can get it at the price I did!
Summary: Super shiny!
