Like every other teen, my foray into cosmetics began with a simple lip gloss. Nothing draws teenage girls like a candy coloured lip gloss tube. Seeing this, they will all congregate in one place and discuss if their hair gets stuck in the gloss or not. It’s funny but at the same time, it’s an indication that they are all taking their first steps towards a love for makeup. I too have contributed to many of these discussions, all to reach my HG gloss. While that is still just a dream, the product I am now going to review is one of the products that I loved as a teen.
3.9 grams (glitter) + 4 grams (gloss).
It’s like an adorable UFO! I am absolutely in love with the look it projects, but sadly, it has many inherent flaws that are too huge to ignore. First, the packaging is not travel safe. The screwing mechanism is flawed and the tub can be pulled apart without any unscrewing. It is also unnecessarily bulky and can’t be stored easily by stacking, and the like. There is no ingredient list present anywhere which, for me, is a huge red flag. The tub packaging makes application and reapplication a tad unhygienic. If you have long nails, like I do, then you will be confronted with the icky task of removing product from under your nails. *shudder*
My Take on Street Wear Double Scoop Lip Gloss and Glitter in Limealicious:
This is one lip gloss that I have had for quite a while and saw in my neighbourhood store just the other day. I have nothing against this product but I feel that it caters to those who are just teens as re-application is never an issue for them, especially if the packaging is cute.
For me, the product is a huge dud. The gloss lacks pigmentation and is so sticky that I feel like my lips have a magnet on them. Everything from stray hair to fur balls get attracted to my lips. The gloss is so sticky that it feels tacky and uncomfortable of my lips. Once you apply the glitter over the gloss, the stickiness reduces diagrammatically and feels alright. The glitter can be used as a body glitter and is a fairly decent product. It’s texture is reminiscent to Vaseline mixed with some silver glitter. Not a particularly bad body glitter during the Indian wedding season.
Honestly, I don’t know whether to be thankful that the gloss isn’t pigmented, because if it was, I am not sure if anyone would want this unflattering milky grey colour on their lips. The glitter lasts for about 2-3 hours, the gloss for 1 hour and the glitter+gloss for about 1.5-2 hours depending on how many times you eat. A lip swatch is a wasteful exercise because all you can see is a layer of Vaseline over my pigmented lips, for some reason, the glitter isn’t all prominent on my lips.
The true marker to see if you would be satisfied with this product is the following. If you aren’t looking forward to the release of Justin Bieber’s new album, I suggest you stay far-far away from this product 😛
