Hello gorgeous ladies,
Today, I will be reviewing a lip gloss from the Hard Candy Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Gloss range, the shade is called “It Girl.” Read on for more details:
Plumping Serum lip gloss will give you the biggest, sexiest lips possible without a doctor’s visit. Sheer colour, outrageous shine.
CAD 6.99 (approximately INR 358).
My Experience with Hard Candy IT Girl Plumping Serum Volumizing Lip Gloss:
Packaging: This lip gloss comes in a cylindrical, long, clear plastic tube with a glossy metallic silver cap with black fancy details on the tube. It does look quite stylish. The clear body of the tube makes the shade visible through it, making it easy to identify it in the makeup stash. The packaging is a bit bulky, travel friendly yet sturdy. The doe-foot applicator is a sponge-tip that is slightly slanted, providing ease of application. One dip does not really pick up enough product, so for full coverage, I need to dip the wand in two to three times into the lip gloss tube.
Color and Pigmentation: The shade “It Girl” is a clear gloss with no shimmer or glitter whatsoever. Since it is a clear gloss, it does not have any pigmentation, but then, it imparts a great amount of shine to the lips for the ultimate youthful, “plump” lips. Needless to say, it will suit all skin tones 😉 This lip gloss can be worn on its own, but preferably looks better over a lip pencil or lipstick to add a beautiful shine to your pout.
Texture: The texture of this gloss is super glossy and more like a thick creamy syrup. It is pretty light in texture and does not feel super sticky. It has the correct amount of stickiness for it to last a bit long on the lips and yet not irritate them. This lip gloss is truly plumping. It does have that slight stinging and tingling sensation, post which the lips do get plumped up to give you a beautiful and fuller look. It is creamy and quite moisturizing and even if you have extremely dry lips, you need not apply any lip balm underneath.
Staying Power: The staying power of this lip gloss is average. It adheres to the lips and stays put for a good 3-4 hours. Since it is a gloss, it does transfer a bit and loses its shine with some snacking.
