Review of Bonne Bell Liquid LipSmacker - Dr Pepper lipgloss by felgoj
This liquid lipgloss came as a 3-pack: Dr Pepper solid lipbalm, clear liquid lipgloss (this review), & tinted squeeze-tube gloss. What I really wanted was the solid stick but they came together as a set, so now I have 3 items.
This lipgloss is clear, colorless & looks like a jelly in the transparent packaging, but it applies feeling thin & oily. It stays where applied however, so it doesn't smear or bleed around the lips.
It's very gently scented but smells of very soft vanilla-cinnamon, not at all like Dr Pepper. The lipgloss tube is also small, so it's convenient for carrying around in small purses or pockets. Applies with the typical doe-foot sponge wand applicator.
I wouldn't ordinarily buy this on its own because I prefer the solid lipbalm over anything else (super moisturization!) but I do like it as part of the set & this also moisturizes my lips just as well as the stick balm. They just don't smell the same.
I'm glad that this unwanted product turned out to be something I like enough to use. Great for quick lipslicking before bed or during the day at work. One or two swipes & it leaves my lips looking moist & glossy but not blindingly vinyl shiny. Just natural but better. And my otherwise dry lips feel great.
I took off 1 lippie b/c of the synthetic off-scent & the bit of greasy texture that feels like the gloss will disappear from the lips too fast.

JUST BOUGHT THE RED LIQUID LIPSMACKER. It's exactly like the clear Dr Pepper but gives the very slightest red tint to lips. On me it looks like a moist, slightly enhanced rosy natural lip. The product is oily (a texture I dislike) & the packaging is small for small purses & pockets. I paid $3 for it but I don't think I'll buy it again - there isn't enough color payoff to make it worthwhile & I don't like the oily texture. The smell is nice, though, but it only lasts during application & then fades away.
