Lancome Juicy Tube
Advantages: Glossy, thick, it looks good on your lips, the colours suit everybody.
Disadvantages: The price.
In the past I've used lots of different Juicy Tubes in a variety of colours, however at roughly £15.00 a gloss, this is something that I can only afford to treat myself to every now and again.
You can buy Juicy Tubes from most department stores - including Debenhams, John Lewis and bigger Boots stores.
These lip glosses come in 15ml tubes and you can get them in all sorts of colours - Barbie pink, red, brown, clear... there is a large variety of shades available. But although the colours look quite vibrant in the tube, when you apply it onto your lips the colour isn't as rich - but it is very glossy.
With the colour being quite subtle, these glosses pretty much suit everybody, so if you're buying them as a present, don't worry too much about matching the person's complexion with the right juicy shade, because these glosses seem to suit everybody - I'm yet to find a juicy tube that doesn't suit me.
These lip glosses come in a squeezable tube that you unscrew and squeeze to apply directly to your lips. Each tube comes in a small cardboard case but I often throw it away, because I find it gets in the way, especially when I'm applying my gloss in a rush.
I think juicy tube gloss is thicker than other, cheaper lip gloss brands and I like the effect it has on my lips - it definitely makes them look fuller and more defined. The gloss is also quite long lasting - it lasts on my lips a good few hours after I've applied it - longer if I'm not eating and drinking!
Juicy Tubes do last a long time (unless you lose them!) and although they are expensive I think you pay for quality - this is buy far the most effective lip gloss brand I've used... I just wish they were slightly more affordable - four stars!
Summary: Treat yourself... and your lips!
