Comes in a lot of colors. I received a set of about 10 as a gift, so I have tried many colors. Some are way too light and frosty looking, others are nice with a medium amount of subtle color. This is your average sticky gloss but for a higher than average price.
I didn't actually buy them-got them as a present so didnt realise how expensive they were until i looked them up now
I have i think 6 or 7 of these in lots of diffrent colours, some with shimmer some without
They are very sticky which i personally dont mind but if you do i wouldnt advise trying these
I love all of the colours of these and they give a long lasting shine which is great
But if i had to pay with them from my own money im not sure that i would as there is probably similar drugstore equivelants
Love the packaging though
I quite like them though
I don't know why the star rating of the is a 3 because it's absolutely amazing to me. I got a seven set one and it wasn't very expensive. They sell it in sets which make it very affordable and reasonable. I love the colors that it comes in and the gloss and shine is amazing. Honestly, it is barely as sticky as the glosses that I bought from clinique. I love it!
If you don't like sticky products on your lips then don't go near these. Stop reading and just move on.
If you have long hair that billows around your face like in a 'Head and Shoulders' advertisement- watch out- your dandruff free hair may end up sticking to your lips making you can look like Cousin It.
These are rather interesting. If you can move past the stickiness, the colors are beautiful and there is high shine. They are nice layered over a boring matte lipstick.
The product stays on my lips for about 2 hours and is relatively moisturizing. I kind of like the twisty system. I don't know if they are value for money as they are suspiciously easy to use up- but I don't care as I like using things up.
This product makes your lips very shiny/glossy and if that's what you're looking for, buy it! I bought this in the color grapefuit thinking it would be more pigmented into the grapefruit color, but it wasn't really noticeable. It's not too sticky and not to liquidy! I love the packaging. I bought this because Victoria Beckham said she loved it so I'm why not! The only thing I didn't really like is it made my lips very dry and chapped the next day! And it's super expensive for just a lip gloss! I wouldn't buy this again, all lip glosses are the same and its not that this wasnt worth the money, it's just overpriced for what you're selling. It's just lip gloss!
I bought this in a set called "All is Bright" so it wasn't as expensive as purchasing separately. At first i had no idea how to get the product on my lips, checked here and was scared after reading some bad reviews. That said, I love this product. I've been using a Smashbox lipgloss which leaves me lips a little dry, and was considering stocking up on Carmax to take care of that when these lip glazes arrived.
I do have to turn the bottom of the tube a lot to get enough of the product on the brush, but when its there it glides on smoothly and looks shiny and stays in place. The glaze is sticky, I avoid kissing my man while wearing it so it isn't good for a hot date, but for a long day's wear when you want your lips to look full and shiny, and end up feeling soft and mouisturized, this product is excellent. I will buy another set of these again.
Also, the set of six (or eight, I forget) was $25.00, so for just over 4 dollars apiece at the most these are very well worth it.
I love these, as a gloss junkie they are everything I look for in a gloss, great color, long lasting and high shine. They look expensive and pretty on the lip, not cheap or childish like many glosses can look. On a "sticky scale" I give them a 7 (0 being water and 10 being honey). The color selections are really great, I have the deep red wine as well as many of the nude/pink shades and get compliments all the time how nice it looks. I would say if I put this on around 8am, I don't need to reapply until about 12 or so.
So I bought this in the colour Strawberry, which I love. It goes on a lovely sheer pinkish-red and smells like strawberries (not the fake plastic smelling type. It's very fruity and delicious). It is expensive at $29 CAD but I think it's worth it. You don't need much product as a little goes a long way. It goes on smoothly and hydrates my lips. While it's not as long lasting as my regular lip balms (this one lasts around 2 hours), I like to layer a lip balm over top whenever they start to feel dry. The packaging is nice, it comes in a penlike tube with a twist at the bottom. When you twist it you can hear a very clear 'click'. It takes about 30-40 clicks to get the product going but once you use it it only takes about 3-4 clicks. Learn from my mistakes as I twisted the bottom too much and so much product came out! I would definitely repurchase, even though it's a little bit expensive. I just love the colour, the smell and the smoothness of it! It's hardly even sticky, which is fantastic too!
I got the plum shade along with 2 others as a gift from my mom's friend who lives in usa. When i twisted the packaging for the first time, i was quiet confused, "why the product wont show up?" i was impatient and twisted it too hard and suddenly... I Made such a big mess. That was my experience on how bad is the packaging, but it has got a good brush applicator though.
The shades i got:
- blackberry : it appears to be reddish purple on the packaging, but it turns to a lovely shade of purple with a very sexy sheen. This shade has no glitter.
- plum fairy : this is the first color i have ever tried :) it is somehow glittery and shiny, and i love its lovely pink color. I have been using this shade quiet a while :D
- Tangerine : i never used this shade because it makes my skin tone looks more pale and it looks too shiny since it has a very light orange color. And it has TOO MUCH GLITTER so my lips feel like a disco ball.
NB: Both blackberry and plum fairy Has a sweet scent and they can freshen up my face weven though i dont use any foundation at all :) unlike the Tangerine one, this one has an artificial scent ._. but anyway three of them are highly moisturising although they are really sticky :)
I posted a full review of Kaledioscope, Grapefruit, Apricot, and Starfruit on my blog (each one has a different colour and scent so it's hard to generalize):
Overall, I wold say this product is moisturizing, and long lasting!
