I bought this before it became all the rage and found it to be just okay. The color I have is pretty (Miracle), a very sheer pink with sparkles which was great for the summer when I bought it. But it is extremely goopy, thick and sticky and comes off quickly.
I received this as a sample in "candy cane" and it was my first time using JT, since I couldn't ever justify spending $15 on clear lipgloss. I like how it looks when I first put it on, but it is very sticky and does not stay on long at all. It was fun to get as a sample, but I don't think I will ever shell out the money to buy one of these.
Ok, this is the most expensive Lipgloss I've seen, except for Stila Lip Polish but it is SOOO worth the price!!
I own it in Groiselle which is a nice light red shade. The colour is not to overboard, and gives your lips a very nice, glossy sheen. They smell so nice as well!!!
Your hair does have a tendancy to stick to your lips in windy days, but it has a good consistency and definately a repurchase item
My HG!! :)
I like these alot because I have an obsession with lip glosses (and these are shiiiiny) , but my boyfriend was afraid of me when I wore mine. . .
I own 2 tubes- I love love love this product.
i was stealing my friends juicy tubes until i bought my own. gives good shine- perfect for a natural summer look. and they smell great.
bot an evening look- but the perfect dewey day look!!
Overall, Juicy Tubes are so-so. PROS: The shine lasts a long time. Most of them smell good. The ones with glitter in them have the perfect balance, enough glitter to make your lips sparkle, but not so much that its overwhelming. CONS: Too sticky sometimes. Even the brightly colored ones show up almost clear on your lips. Way too expensive for the amount you get. I have another lip gloss with 3 times the amount of gloss, and it was 4 times cheaper!
Hopefully I have purchased my last JT since all I ever do is try them a couple of times and then swap them. I seem to have a mental block against glosses that don't have a wand. I tried Bonfire, Mirage and No Taboo, and though I liked the smell, they just didn't do anything for me for whatever reason. Still tempted to try the new ones, though. It's a sickness.
Loreal is the same company, buy theirs instead it works just as well, but you don't pay the price.
I own an "Hallucination" Juicy Tube, which is a color quite close to Mac's Oh Baby. I like the shine, texture and slight color of this, but I'm not wild about applying it. I prefer a wand for applying gloss. But still - lovely color!
okay, for years i just did not get the fuss about these! i thought "what am i missing?" or "what is wrong with everyone?" these are so expensive, and most go on pretty much clear. why pay so much? i kept trying a few every year, with the same result. and i made up this hypothesis -- there are mac lipglass girls, and lancome juicy tube girls, and rarely do they agree. mac lipglasses are much more pigmented, all smell the same (vanilla-y?) and seem more reasonably priced. juicy tubes go on clear, smell very good, and have many different smells. also, mac lipglass does tend to sit on the lips and are very sticky, and juicy tubes less so. anyway, i resigned myself to being a mac girl, and just not getting the juicy tube thing. then something chaged this year. i started reaching for my juicy tubes, slowly at first, and then one day, i realised i was using them more than my mac lipglasses. at first, it was mostly because they smelled so damn good. and my husband loved how good they made me smell. (it was funny...the first time he said, wow, what's that perfume you're wearing...i wasn't wearing any, and then i realised it was the juicy tube) then i started noticing that my lips looked good too. yes, they were the same colour, but they were more shiny, more shimmery. and then i found out how dramatically better juicy tubes (and colour juices for that matter) make any lipstick look. now i'm sold. i think i get it. try them. if you still don't see what the big deal is, try them over three randomly chosen completely different lipsticks ... they make quite a difference
