Hi everyone, I'm so sorry for being MIA the last few days. I started my new job, went to some college open houses, and tried to spend as much time with my friends and family while I could. Today I'm going to review another product that I received in my October Birchbox - the POP Beauty Aqua Lacquer in Flowering Fuchsia.
When I first glanced at this product, my first thought was "oh no, this is not something I would have picked for myself" - I'm not really a lip gloss person, and if anything I like subtle nude glosses. The color in the tube is a bright hot neon pink, but its a little bit more sheer when on the lips. The consistency is super thick and tacky, but because of this it has longer staying power and also adds a wet/juicy effect to the lips. The applicator is a flat paddle, which I strongly dislike. Distributing the product evenly and easily, in my opinion, is a nightmare. Definitely not a quick, hassle-free "no mirror" gloss. Overall, I'm not as disappointed as I thought I would be. My lips look fuller, and juicier when wearing this gloss, and the sheer hot pink is quite flattering. The thickness is a little uncomfortable... and my boyfriend wants nowhere near me when I have this stuff on. Maybe with a better applicator I would consider trying different shades but for now I'm going to pass on repurchasing. You can purchase this POP Beauty Aqua Lacquer for $14.00 on Birchbox.
Are you a lipgloss lady, or a lipstick lover like me?
