For the first time ever I had a job for Christmas just gone so that means I had to go through my first ever "Secret Santa" task. Now I don't really know anything about the girl I was given to buy for but I figured you cant go wrong with an item of make-up or bath salts or something lol. Now we were given a £5 limit because I assume people are broke so I thought it would be really hard to find a nice gift for a fiver or less. But that's when my mom found these and suggested that I bought these for my colleague and because they looked so pretty I bought myself a set to.
Cost & Availability:
I paid exactly £5 for these from play.com so I thought that was a great price for these cute cupcakes. I think these can be purchased on other sites like amazon but they are a lot more expensive due to postage costs so play is your best bet.
First let me say OMG. These little cupcakes are sooo much smaller in real life than they appear to be on online images. Each cake is around the size of a 10p coin so they are proper tiny. I started worrying at this point that the girl I had bought them for would think I was a cheapskate but I set those worries aside because they are so pretty.
I personally got the set that contains 4 "cupcakes" but I think you can get sets with more in them. The four cakes were all in very different styles: a pale coloured one with a strawberry on the top, a chocolate cake with a raspberry on the top, another chocolate cake with a swirl of cream in the middle & another paler cake with red and white swirls on the top. These look good enough to eat and are really cute so I think a great stocking filler for a daughter or sister or any woman in your life that likes cute, girly gifts.
The Lip Gloss:
Now Ive read that all these different glosses are meant to have a different smell e.g one will smell like chocolate and one will smell of toffee. But when I came to smell them I couldn't really detect any distinctive smell they just smelt quite synthetic and all of them smelt exactly the same.
Putting the lip gloss on was pretty easy (opening the "cake" was a lot harder though, they have gone for design over ease thats for sure.) I found I didnt need a lot to cover my whole lips and it felt quite moisturising and soft when I applied it. This gloss doesnt have any of that horrible greasy texture but it does give you lips a nice, clear shimmer.
I found this gloss which is actually more like a lip balm in my opinion lasted on my lips for around 4 hours which I thought was pretty good so no complaints there from me.
I was disappointed that they all smelt the same and all transferred onto your lips clear because I was hoping they would all give me a slightly different look, but sadly that didnt happen.
Did She Like It?
Luckily she did. I was worried that because they were so tiny I would look like a cheapskate but their cute design and packaging made them a huge hit. The funny thing is whoever my secret Santa was bought me exactly the same thing so they are clearly a big hit with the female population. =]
The makers of these "glosses" have certainly concentrated on the design more than anything else. They are worth buying for the packaging alone but anyone who is expecting these glosses to heal dry lips or make your lips more plumped up are going to be disappointed because they will not do that. They are a nice little gift for someone for their birthday or Christmas but I wont be rushing out to re-stock up on mine when they run out because they aren't really that special.
Thanks For Reading
