I am loving this gloss. It's cute packaging and a good product! That's a win in my book!!
LipSavvy gloss! According to the manufacturer, this product is going to be in 22 shades in 2 formulas. ColorGlam is a creamy finish with subtle shimmer (12 shades) and Star Studded Shine is intense sparkle with multi-dimensional shine (10 shades). They claim "Lip Savvy! glosses offer total free radical protection, multiple collagen-boosting properties, prevention and correction of lines and wrinkles, instant and long-term painless plumping, and intense hydration. These glosses incorporate modern skincare and color technologies to give lips a fighting chance in the battle against aging."
First off, just look at the tube! I love, LOVE this zebra print tube! It's unlike any other gloss I've seen. While applying in public, I've had numerous women ask me what it is and where they can get it too! It's definitely an eye-catcher. It's being marketed as a limp plumper. I'm not really in need of plumping as my lips have a good shape already, but I felt nor saw no difference when using the gloss. But since I'm not really looking for that, I'm fine with it not working all that great. If you're looking for a mega-plumper... keep looking.
This one shows the color a bit better. It's called Sho Bunny and is a Star Studded Shine shade. It's a light pink with lots of sparkle in blues and greens and gold. It's very pretty! It's sheer, which I happen to like for a gloss. I am admittedly a gloss hoarder and have probably a million and one tubes in all very similar shades. They're all sheer and pink or nude, haha. But I love them all!! This one is a bit thick and I wouldn't recommend it for a windy outting because it does have the hair-grabbing stickiness that some hate. BUT it's that thick texture that keeps it on your lips and moisturizing for you for longer! My lips felt great after a few days of using this.
Here is a shot of the brush which also shows the color a bit better (and closer, lol). I'm not a fan of this style of gloss dispensing. You click the bottom of the tube and the gloss comes out through the brush. They're pushing it as less germ-ridden, but you're still smooshing the brush all over your lips and your germs are still waiting for you the next time. I feel like I have no control over the amount of product I get with this style of applicator. The first use, you have to click a million times to get the air out. BUT subsequent times, you have to be careful with the clicks because the product is thick and comes up slowly. So I felt like this. I click a few times... nothing. Click a few more times... too little. Wait a minute... still not enough... click a few more times... WOAH too much! A couple times it kept pumping out gloss after I closed it and there was plenty for a second application, lol. I'd much rather have the doe-foot applicator. I feel a lot more in-control and less wasteful with that kind.
And just because I was feeling silly... and a tad tipsy... here are some post-birthday-party shots of my and my LipSavvy....
