Formula Overview

$8.00/0.06 oz. - $133.33 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "glowy" finish that is hydrating and gives buildable color with "buildable, glowy shine." They managed to feel more velvety and glide-on rather than melty and glossy, despite the end result having a moderate about of shine and glow. As a result, the formula was more like a balmy lipstick than a glossy lip balm.

The coverage ranged from semi-sheer to semi-opaque but were generally in the more medium, buildable range, which was in line with the brand's marketing. They were fruity in scent but had no discernible taste. The shades applied evenly, felt comfortable to wear, and typically lasted three to four hours with moderate hydrating.

I can see getting Red Hot. It’s $8 and LE and might be fun as a brighter, not so serious lipstick. The other two pale pinks I may grab for an Easter Basket ‘bunny find’ I give to granddaughters. I usually like to give them light and inexpensive makeup in their baskets !
