– Parabens
– Sulfates
– Synthetic Fragrances

Color tested: Haute

Review (5 highest, 1 lowest):

Packaging: 2 out of 5 (it’s a glass type bottle, which means even with it not being a tube, you can’t depot it and lose a lot of the product to mr. trash)

Price: 3 out of 5 ($22 at Sephora & Lorac)

Quality: 5 out of 5

Overall: 2.5 out of 5

with 2 coats

this is how I wear gloss – on a DIVA tip!
this was an x amount of coats – that means whatever amount of
coats you need right before the gloss starts dripping – keep it sexy!

My Verdict:
This gloss was very good looking, and did everything it promised. However (and this is a BIG however) the packaging ruined it. Not even the price.

I realize the price of $22 for one 0.17oz lip gloss may be steep. But in the world of beauty, where you can probably get free shipping and three samples from Sephora, or whatever type of goodies a retailer offers you. The point is – price can be negotiated in my mind of minds to be seen as alright. Especially if a product does what it promises to do.

All the colors rocked my socks but I didn’t purchase many, due to my unhappiness and the price. The problem with it? The packaging looks like it’s a glass tube. Similar to the MAC lipglass ones. This is a fancypants packaging, and though it’s appealing – it hinders the purpose of getting every ounce for your buck. The packaging will probably be impossible to cut into pieces to get all the product, and with it’s solid state, it will not bend or squeeze to give it up to mama anyway. I’m almost 100% positive that when I feel like it’s empty – I will be prematurely thinking so.

Though I donate plenty throughout the year to various organizations… I am the least happiest when I unwillingly donate products to Mr. Trash.

So yes – the lipgloss is great, but the price raised my brow, and the packaging lowered my thumb. Boo!

  1. Wow, yeah that would so totally suck to lose so much product to the trash just because of the packaging..but maybe that’s just why they did it? To make more money by fooling people into thinking that they have run out? Hm. maybe. heheh. That or they just have stupid packaging designers.
