Review of Hard Candy 10 Years of Gloss by cho_chang
When I saw the packaging, I couldn't resist! So adorable, and they give so much too (which makes it quite cheap)!!
Anyway, I really like this pink gloss. I'd call it a medium candy pink, I think. Not too bubblegum or Barbie, but still a touch cool. Still, when I am wearing cooler colors (or black or something), I can pull it off - it's a fairly subtle color (just too cool to wear with warm-toned clothing - duh...haha).
It's a good texture, too. It's not too sticky but not too slick either. There is a very nice amount of shine, not high gloss but a notch up from tinted lip balm. There is shimmer but it doesn't really show up as shimmery, and it's not gritty. It has a bit of a foody sweet scent.
Me: light/medium, yellow toned Asian (C3ish, revlon sand beige, maybelline light 2/4, EM winged butter), pigmented lips, black hair/eyes

PS: when I ordered it (in the winter!), it arrived with the pot already super sticky, so meltage would be a problem with this stuff....hmmm
