|Do you like how I picked tropical glosses and have the palm|
tree in the background? Totally was not planned...I swear!
Flavors: Mango Martini, Mango Tango, and Jungle Guava. I was obviously going for a tropical theme when I picked up these balms (well I had input from my boyfriend and our best friend--yes shared best friend--who were both having WAY too much fun this time in the store). BBW used to carry this lip gloss called Mango Mai Tai, I believe, and I was absolutely OBSESSED with it. I used it all the time! Then I stopped going there for a while and never realized they were discontinuing it =(. Anyway, basically I am always on the search for a new mango lip gloss. ANYWAY...Mango Martini is clearly a fruity scent, I'm not sure if it's very mango-y but there's definitely some fruit mixed with a little something else. It's pleasant but not exactly what I was looking for (but I liked it enough to buy it). The Mango Tango is sweeter than the Mango Martini and I think it's my favorite of the bunch. It's very fruity and sweet. I've never had a guava before so I'm not quite sure what they're like but the Jungle Guava gloss is definitely not as fruity or sweet as the other two. I can't quite describe it properly, which is unfortunate, but it's probably my least favorite of the group.
Wear: These glosses obviously go on smooth because...well they're glosses! These one's aren't sticky like most glosses which is great because I really hate when it's super sticky, I just end up wiping it all off which voids the point in purchasing or buying them. The two mango glosses go on sheer and provide a nice shine to my lips. The Jungle Guava has a slight color but not much, it could be in my head also. All of the glosses have little sparkles in them as well, but I don't notice them when I wear the gloss.
Packaging: Typical lip gloss tubes; a squeeze tube with a cap. They have designs on them that are characteristic of the line of gloss or of the flavor which is cute and is appealing to the eye.
Price: Jungle Guava was $8. Mango Tango and Mango Martini were $7.50 each. I bought them at buy 2, get 1 free so it wasn't so bad...still more than I'd like to pay though. I wish these glosses were like $4 or 5 before any specials.
Pros: Variety of flavors, wear, packaging
Rating: 3 out of 5 squeezes; these glosses do what they're meant to do...make my lips glossy and shiny and be fruity at the same time. I just hate the price for an individual tube. I do like that they rotate flavors pretty quickly as well as keeping a ton of "staples", so if you don't like one season's line of glosses there's always the following season.
Now my question for you guys is, do you like lip gloss or avoid the stuff like the plague?
