I saw these in TKMaxx in a set with two Jelly Shot lipsticks and one glittergasm lipstick. So thought I had to review the Jelly Shots because seriously, the colours?! To die for! So without further ado, here are my thoughts on these products!
The packaging of these are so cute. I love how you can see the colours at the bottom and now iridescent they are! And the silver tube feels very luxe! But the fact the packaging is white annoyed me a little, because in my makeup bag, my eyebrow stuff got all over it and makes it look super gross! So not the most functional!
Before I get onto the formula and positives, I thought I’d get the negatives out of the way. And it’s only one thing, but it stops me from wanting to use these. And it’s the actual bullet. It has a, and the only way I can describe it is, nipple like appearance, with the pigment in the centre and the moisturising jelly around it. But it makes it so awkward and uncomfortable to apply. As you can’t get an even and neat appearance. And it it ends up melting and looking gross. So it stirs me away from using them because functionally, they are not the easiest! Even if the effect I got is beautiful. I just can’t deal with the application process! So I can’t say it recommend these for easy application that you can pop in your handbag.
But anyway, now we’ve gone past the negativity, let’s discuss the formula. It is very nourishing and the texture of the centre isn’t too gritty for the effect you get. They look so multidimensional and iridescent and pretty. Which can be worn on their own or as a topper, but again, the messy application would hinder that again. However the effect you get is so beautiful. Like a lipgloss but more long wearing. I absolutely love i’ll show you how because it’s gold shimmer brings out the yellow centre of my eyes! However if I want a my eyes to look bluer then share my fantasy looks beautiful! They look gorgeous! And enhances whatever looks you go for as it shines the colour flip but without covering your natural lip colour, giving it a more natural appearance!
All in all, the negative outweighs the positives. As I have lipglosses that gives me the same effects, are just as nourishing and comfortable and less awkward and difficult to apply. So I’ll probably end up decluttering these. I’m happy I’ve tried them and wore them when I did because the texture on the lips and the appearance is beautiful. But I just hate how messy and gross the application is! Maybe I’m just finicky. But I didn’t enjoy putting them on, even if I did enjoy wearing them. And the process of makeup has to be pleasurable for me. And with these, it was far from that!
I hope you enjoyed this blog post! Sorry if it was a bit negative. Let me know if you’ve tried these and feel the same way? Or am i just being a fuss pot? 😂
