Lancome Juicy Tube
Advantages: Glossy, shiny lips
I don't like lipsticks so I will only use gloss. I alternate between these and Benefit's Californian Kissin'. These tubes cost £14.50 the Lancome counter which is in Boots, Debenhams and other big department stores. They are expensive but they do last for years. I recieved a set for christmas which contained 3 tubes and lasted me a good 2 years.
Out of the tubes I have tried my favourite shade is Marshmallow. This looks bright pink in the tube. There are various other shades available some are more glittery and shimmery than others.
The gloss comes in a tube which has a slanted applicator. A tube contains 14g of gloss. You can get half sized tubes for cheaper too. When you screw the lid off you will see inside that there is a long piece of plastic that acts as a plug when the lid is screwed on to stop the gloss from leaking everywhere.
The glosses are designed to add shimmer and shine to the lips creating a lacquered effect.
All of the glosses smell different some don't smell of much and others like my favourite Marshmallow smell delicious. It actually smells like marshmallows, very sweet and very nice.
The gloss is quite thick to use and you need to give the tube a good squeeze to get some out. You do only need a small amount and it spreads really well over your lips. Marshmallow only has a subtle shimmer to it so once it is on your lips look really glossy and shiny, because the gloss is thicker it lasts a lot longer than cheaper glosses. The gloss doesn't really add any colour to your lips, which makes me wonder why there are so many shades/flavours to choose from. The gloss also has a sweet taste to it. I have tried numerous lipglosses in the past and I always find they taste disgusting however this is plesant.
I would recommend these lipglosses mainly because they smell nice and not cheap and plasticy like others and they do last longer than cheaper alternatives.
I would give these 4 out of 5.
Summary: A good range of colours and scents
