Blistex, a roller-ball liquid chapstick that you most certainly can’t wear before bed, has a not so great taste and smell, has a bad consistency, the roller ball doesn’t coat chapped lips well, and it doesn’t actually help my chapped lips. I’m so sorry I bought this :/
another NYC lip gloss in clear. Just like my other reviews, I really don’t like the NYC lip gloss line, I don’t like the smell, the tackyness, the consistency, how quickly it wears off, and how the outside of the packaging is always sticky no matter how tightly I close the lid
I dont have any swatches to add to this post, but I also wanted to mention how unhappy I was with the yuckyness of the gloss coming out of the edges of the cap even when it is tightly screwed on. No matter how tightly I close the lid, as Laura says, gloss manages to get on the sides of the tube and it is so gross to touch and really inconvenient to store, especially in purses, which usually have a cloth lining!’
So I bought this NYC lip gloss in sungold pink because it was inexpensive and I loved the golden pink shimmery hue, perfect for spring and summer. I hate, however, the tacky ness, the stickyness always lingering on the outside of it it, the smell of the gloss, and the consistency that doesn’t stay on my lips for long. NYC, I’m not impressed with your lip glosses in this line.
This is a swatch of a dark red gloss from femme couture. The color is raisin. This gloss, as far as I know, is found only at Sally Beauty supply. I think the gloss feels really nice on the lips, and the color is good, but it is definitely the kind of gloss you want to wear over some sort of lipstick or tinted lip balm because since it is dark, it is much more noticeable when the color separates due to the formula being liquidy.
I think overall that would be the only thing I didn’t like. I like the gloss itself and with light or clear colors it shouldn’t be a problem, but since it is such a dark color it looks kinda bad on its own.
