Review of Hard Candy Glossaholic - Sequin Saturated Shine Lip Gloss in Rise & Shine by shellieholiday
I <3 this gloss. First of all, I can actually use it since I'm allergic to Vitamin E (tocopheryl acetate) which is in way, way too many products, and this doesn't contain it!!! The gloss is clear with iridescent multi-dimensional warm colored glitter, that are also varying sizes. And the glitter is NOT grainy or sandy at all, you can barely feel it. The gloss is coffee scented but more of a sugary, vanilla flavor like the rest of the Glossaholic line (it's unnervingly delicious). I can't say that I love the scent, but the flavor, formula, and results make up for that. It looks great on its own for a little gloss to your lips and to add a warm undertone (the glitter colors) and also looks great over lipstick. I can't say I feel more 'awake' because of the coffee scent and caffeine in it though. I love that this one gives you warm tones while the opposite (Glossaholic in Chill Out) gives you cool tones to match whatever look you want. My ONLY gripe about it is the glitter stays longer than the gloss, which sometimes shifts to outside of my lips, although the gloss lasts for at least a couple hours. OH! And the giant wand make for easy & quick application.
