Shiny, Glittery, Juicy. I was lucky to receive this product as a gift from the amazing Dave Lackie Editor of Beauty Departure Magazine. A 15ml tube of gloss retails for $15, which works out to $1 per ml of product. Don’t dispair beauty fans, you can frequently find this product in a gift bundle of 2 tubes for $25 or as a part of a Lancome giveaway.
Juicy tubes smell like candy, cotton candy sweet. The gloss itself is ultra shiny with a glittery base. Filled with Shea butter this product is moisturizing while the Lemon oil will give the lips a tingly feeling. This gloss applies smoothly and is less dense and sticky than many on the market. There will always be a bit of ‘stick’ since it is a gloss.
The shimmer is pretty intense, which makes lips appear fuller than they naturally are. I find a good use for this product as a lipstick topper. The only complaint that I could make about this product is that it doesn’t last long on the lips before fading. If you don’t mind reapplying on a frequent basis, this product could become your new best friend.

You may wish to give this product a pass if:
- You are sensitive to Fragrance
- You are sensitive to Lemon Oil
- You are sensitive to Castor Oil
- You want a cruelty-free company (they sell in mainland China)
- You are seeking a Vegan company
This product was ok. Smells good, feels good on the lips. Just didn’t last as long as I had hoped it would. I do enjoy dabbing a little bit on top of my lipstick just to add additional dimension.
