|Shade: Artistic (16)|
Is very scary bright in the bottle, but its a gloss, and a very sheer one at that :D My lips are very unevenly pigmented, and I really couldn't get a proper pic for a lip-swatch, honestly don't think the colour that shows up in the pic would be what it would look like on the lips. This is the swatch on my hand.
And this is the highly unreliable lip swatch. I would use this only with a lip liner, but I have taken the pic without one because the colour really wouldn't be the actual gloss colour, otherwise.
This gloss is a very reddish-pink with very fine gold shimmer in it. The shimmer was nonexistent, though, on my lips. Is just not seen AT ALL. It gives a very faint reddish-pink tint to the lips colourwise and of course is glossy.
This comes with a nice doe-foot wand, soft and very nice to use - picks up a lot of the gloss too. This is the one good feature in this lip gloss that I would pick out and point to everybody :D
Unfortunately, the wand will be the only one in the list of likes. I will not be buying any more of these glosses because:
- Is a very very sheer colour. Its a bright beautiful colour in the bottle but on the lips, you get hardly anything. Just a faint tint of the colour. I did not find it anything special.
- The main reason I will never buy this again is: I HATE THE SMELL/TASTE which I get when I put this on my lips. I did not try this on my lips before I bought it, so I have only myself to blame, but I would strongly recommend anybody planning on buying this to do smell it before you buy, and definitely apply it on your lips before buying.
This review, however, is my personal opinion, and I know I am biased, so I would suggest if you were/are interested in buying this, please try at the counter for sure. It is a good option for anyone who wants a very faint hint of colour and/or are scared to try colours like red/bright pink. Don't just decide to not buy based on my review of this, but DEFINITELY do smell it before you buy :D
