Matte polishes tend to be disastrous.... I like the look (sometimes), but it works out better with a mattifying top coat, then buying seperate matte nail polishes.
So streaky and so Neon!!
This color, kind of sucks. It has the weirdest texture!!! It is thick and CHALKY and flaky. It is actually really horrible to apply.
You have to put a lot on (since it is so thick), and the finish is really bad, unless you apply it perfectly.
Ugh, it's awful.
Indoor light - looks pastel!
On the plus side, It is neon. Really neon. Under florescent lights, it looks like something from the 80's. The color is kind of awesome. This is a color that REALLY changes in different lighting, you can see in the pictures it can look pastel, bright, or Neon. It's weird.
But the polish is terrible...
On the plus side, it didn't stain my nails!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't know why but skin food has two honey lipglosses, one is in a pot and one is in a tube.
I've already reviewed the one in a tube!
But, don't stop reading they are VERY different.
Obviously, the honey pot is adorable. If you suspect that is why I bought it, you would be right.....
But look at it! And the little honey scoop thingy for application, it is even made out of real wood. How cute is that!
Within the unimportant packaging is a golden transparent lip gloss. It's texture is completely unlike the tube gloss (which was sticky). This is lovely and smooth. It's like a clear vaseline.
The usual Skinfood Cherub!
So, like vaseline, it is great on the lips!!! I really like this as a night gloss, since it is very moisturizing, and thick. Since it isn't sticky, it doesn't get in my hair(or on my pillow).
As a lip gloss, rather than a night treatment, it has a nice shine, and stays on well for this sort of gloss. It's a bit boring, since it is colorless, essentially flavor and scentless.
Beyond that, it isn't very exciting. But it does a good job at being a lip gloss.
The only problem I have is with the packaging.....
What???? Is that the whole reason i bought it????
Well yes, but the silly thing is so deep!!!! It's like an inch between the rim and the product.
And it is narrow, so you can't use your finger without getting lip gloss under your nail(it is to deep to swipe with the pad of your finger).
So you Have to use the little applicator. But the little applicator just sits on the side (they were clever and there is a little piece of platic that keeps the applicator with the gloss), but since the applicator is just out there, it get's dirty!!! And the little ridges hold onto dirt!
So after you have used it once, you don't want to use the applicator again!
But you can't use your fingers....
It's really weird.
Mmm. Honey. I love the idea of a honey lip treatment! It sounds delicious and wonderful!.
So I bought 2 different honey treatments from Skinfood. I will review the honey pot soon!
This is a lip gloss. The packaging is a little bit cute, I like the gold pattern of honey combs, and the gloss really looks like honey.
The gloss itself is on the thick side (really, it's what you expect from something with honey!), it has a very slight honey scent, and tastes sweet(but not like honey!)
As a lip treatment it is not very good.... It's not moisturizing, it doesn't make my lips soft...
As a lip gloss, it's not very good..... It's a bit too sticky, and doesn't last!
It applies clear, and has a nice shine, but that's about all it has going for it....
It was cheap, and It's not a bad gloss, just not great.
