VOV CANDY Water Shine Lip Gloss – Review and Swatches

VOV Candy Water Shine Lip Gloss – Review and Swatches

After my mood was down due to the horrible Avon gloss, Natasha had kindly suggested a way out of the lumpy and clumpy liquid. She said – “I gave up on glosses more than a year ago. now I only use clear glosses in tube form over my lipsticks” and the idea struck me as one that I can really put to practice. So I got myself a clear gloss with just a dust of sparkles from VOV. This is the first time for me to experiment with something like this, so I decided not to go for anything too expensive, and the 7 ml VOV Candy Water Shine lip gloss seemed the perfect solution at Rs 75 only.

The clear gloss is glycerine like in thickness and its texture is syrupy smooth. The smell is very mild and the taste is only slightly sweet. It is not sticky (I was afraid that it would be, since it is sweet and syrupy) and most important, it does not make me lick off the gloss as soon as I apply it. The liquid is speckled with a little bit of sparkles that catch the eye but not in a disco light sort of way. It is quite decent actually, just adding to the lustre of the gloss.
The profile of the VOV Candy Water Shine lip gloss is like this –

  • Manufactured under the license of VOV
  • Marketed by VOV
  • Contains – tiny glitter particles to add to the glaze of the gloss
  • Quantity – 7 ml
  • Price – Rs 75

Let us discuss the points that make the VOV Candy Water Shine lip gloss likable to me –
the price. 7 ml for Rs 75 is cheap
the glaze and the tiny glitter particles. They do not make the lips obscenely disco light-ish sparkly, yet highlight the glossiness
it stays for quite long, as long as we do not eat something or lick it off
just a faintest trace of smell
the taste is mildly sweet

Now the not so happy things about the VOV Candy Water Shine lip gloss –
it is a ‘not so elite’ beauty product. So you cannot expect too good quality of more expensive glosses
a tad bit syrupy, that makes me want to lick it off as soon as I put it on
the applicator wand is a little fuzzy


Now here are some looks I tried out with the VOV Candy Water Shine lip gloss, combining with other lip products as Natasha originally suggested –
First with the glazy Oriflame Hydra Comfort Mocha Magic (just the colour on the left and with the gloss on the right)

This colour is already glossy, so did not make much noticeable difference in combination with the gloss.

Then with Avon Simply Pretty Mango Mania (just the colour on the left and with the gloss on the right):


This one is a creamy, smooth lipstick, which I like individually also a lot, and the look with the lip gloss is even better.

And also with Lakme Clasics Very Sherry (just the colour on the left and with the gloss on the right):


Very Sherry is a matt shade, which turned vivacious with the magic touch of the gloss. I liked the end result very much.

And in the end, this is the one which I will be encouraging everyone to try once – just the gloss over your lip balm. I am using it over my The Body Shop Born Lippy Raspberry lip balm.


Overall verdict – Thank You Natasha

      2. ratidoo, u talking abt the body shop aqualily mist na? or lotion? i think i had smeled the mist n really liked it. yeah i also did not pick it up thinking it as very summery summery smell so better buy in summers or stock up now n use in summers :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:

        1. I was wanting to buy the aqua lily mist too but there was no discount on it…..so i picked up Satsuma lotion & body wash along with strawberry body polish & got a 20% discount(valid on buying 3 products-aqua lily not included)

    2. Rati are you talking about maybelline watershine liquid diamonds range here…If yes then they havent discontinued it my friend recently got one it’s kinda clear gloss..

  4. nice review gabbar !!!!!!!! hehehehehe …. the original VOV brand is quite gud yaar….. we have got a whole vov counter at the beauty shop … so its gud tht those pdts r original .. they hav made in taiwan label on em. .

  5. That’s so kind of you, Scarlett, thank you so much. I’ve never been there but I shall try & visit it soon, and if I need any help, I shall pester you!

  6. Hey Scarlett, have you tried the new Avon Glazewear Sparkling lip glosses? I have just used one of them in ‘Rave’ – lovely sheer, sparkly shine, and so reasonable too (since I am an Avon rep.!)

    1. Thanks for the link, Scarlett. I too was a little disappointed with the doe foot applicator in the Glazewear lip glosses, they pick up such a little product, and this new one is the same, except that the look of the gloss is really good, that is, if you are like me and like shimmery glosses. I just LOVE shimmery/glittery stuff.

  7. thats is a gr8 experiment scarlett….. the gloss looks like a glitter pen,….. and very very cute wrapping paper :)) :))

  8. deb….the gloss looks better with the lakme lipstick na…….with others…its kind of okay…..but 80 rupees mein ek gloss……… :toothygrin:

  9. really cool idea and experiment Scarlett. :)) dunno why i never thought of just using clear gloss over my lipsticks. i’ll try this sometime.

    1. yaa yaa…am a member of british council and frequently go to starmark to buy books….nxt tym i’ll surely look for it! 😛

  10. hey it looks nice with body shop balm and lakme lippy..!!!
    but i always wonder y vov products are soo cheap.. i dunno how far its true but i had heard from someone that original vov has never come to india so all that we have is fake ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:)

  11. i hope not.. i quite like their eye pigments… those which come in chhotu dibbies… it has gorgeous colours..!! iv used em mamy times… thats one thing iv bought from vov quite a few times 🙂

  12. i have V.O.V gloss in a pink shade.it is also good,cant expect much from such low price product.i bought it at rs 55 3months back.i think its an ok gloss to play around.
