Candy Doll Lipgloss in Strawberry Milk: $118HKD (£9.45)
SHEER MILK PINK
Was excited to try this product out! I think being surrounded by products had overwhelmed the choice of shade I had picked. But then again, I always choose light pinks. It is stated as a nude beige pink with glitter. Has a pink shimmer with blue undertones. I could tell that this was going to be a sheer application so didn't really have very high hopes for this.
First of all, this product is sticky. Taking the wand out, I could feel it being sticky and I can feel how sticky this was when applied. Wasn't a lovely feeling as the texture was quite thick. I had to wipe it off immediately. Lips still feel a bit sticky now after removing it. Disappointed. I was correct, this was a sheer gloss on my pigmented lips. Not much pigment but does give a lovely shine. Not a super glossy shine, enough for my liking. The swatch above does show a pigmented milky pink shade but when it's spread, it is quite sheer. I think to make the most out of this, it's best applied over any pink lipstick or a nude lip to get a nude pink lip. There's a weird smell, like the common unscented lipgloss scent if that made any sense.
The packaging is really cute though! For that price, I would say it is a tad on the expensive price since this didn't live up to all the hype. I wouldn't purchase this again.
