Product Review: Chocolate Cherry Lip Glaze
|Product: Lip Glaze in Chocolate Cherry|
|Buy it: Drugstores, Grocery|
Sally Hansen's comfort shine lip glaze is an vita fruit complex that sores and beautifies distressed lips. Filled with vitamins, moisturizers and soothing extracts creates a cushion of moisture delivered right to your lips. A sophisiticated package with no mess applicator.
Ever since MAC released the Cult of Cherry collection, I've been craving chocolate cherries. So, when I stumbled across Sally Hansen's comfort shine in Chocolate Cherry - I was all over it! A chocolate cherry flavored lip gloss filled with vitamins, moisturizers and no-mess applicatior - y u m m y!
The Good: Extremely pigmented and excellent color pay-off. The deep chocolate burgandy shade is filled with gold shimmer and suitable for most. Trendy color for fall and a great topper for MAC's Cult of Cherry lipsticks/mattenes. My lips felt completely moisturized and loved.
Check out some pictures below.
The Bad: Now, you know there had to be bad news. I can't tell you how incredibly disappionting this was because it's such a great product as far as the gloss goes. My issue is the applicator. It's plastic, small and flimsy - just not practical for me or my lips. I had trouble accomplishing an even application - very blotchy like. The chocolate cherry flavor didn't bother me but, I could possibly see a difference of opinion.
One main reason Sally Hansens lip glaze intrigued me was the no-mess applicator. So, you can see the great disappiontment by my low rating. That's the main reason MAC's Tendertones and Loreal Jelly Balm didn't go over - who wants to put gloss on with their finger?! hello, bacteria!
Overall, this is beyond a great gloss as far as texture, color pay-off, vitamins and moisture. The staying power is your typical gloss but with total hydration your lips will crave. I've read a couple reviews on this product - some good and some bad. It might vary between personal preference.
Sally - perfect the applicator and you have a true bread winner here! Heck, just put it in a regular tube! As far as my supply, I still plan on using it and applying with an q-tip like applicator or a lip brush because the color's fab. For my swatch above my good ole pinky finger came in handy.
