There is just something about picking up a lip gloss that gives me a little boost of happiness on a rotten day, which is how I ended up with this one from Hard Candy! I’ve never used their glosses, but when I saw one of the Glossaholic glosses ($5) on Crystalis007’s blog, I loved how it looked on her and decided to try one for myself. After debating between a couple of shades, I chose this one in Confection, which is a milky pink with some shimmer.
This gloss comes in a giant tube with a HUGE doe foot applicator. I actually like this applicator and it’s really soft! The gloss is scented with a sweet scent, but it isn’t overpowering. It is a vanilla frosting type scent.
This gloss does have some shimmer and sparkle in it. I didn’t find it particularly gritty or noticeable while I was wearing it. Unfortunately, this just wasn’t pigmented enough for me, though I do like how glossy it is. This lives up to its name: it is CRAZY glossy, but not sticky or heavy, which is nice.
Confection on top of Flower Beauty Sweet Peony lipstick. I used a disposable wand to avoid getting lipstick in the gloss. I do like how this looks on top of lipstick!
This isn’t a total dud of a gloss and I would probably try another shade since I do like how glossy it is. Have you tried any of these glosses? What do you think of them?
