The gloss I picked up was the Lip Smoothie in strawberry. I opened the packaging yesterday and applied it on my lips. I immediately noticed an awful plastic smell on my lips and wiped them off right away. For the next 3+ hours I could smell that horrible plastic smell. Also the texture of the lip gloss was not for me it was super sticky and waxy feeling.
I went on NYC's site today to try to look up more info on this product and couldn't find it anywhere so maybe its discontinued. Thank god for that because I would never ever recommend this product to anyone.
It doesn't even come close to the NYC Roll-On Lip Gloss which is my absolute favorite. Its super shiny, not sticky at all and an added bonus is that it smells and tastes great!
At a price of approx $2.47 cdn this is def my go to gloss. It looks great over any lip liner or color or by itself. As far as I know its available at Walmart & Loblaws and a definite must have.
Warning about the Roll-On Lip gloss:
- 90% of the time I've taken this gloss in my carry-on on a flight the roller ball dislodges and I can no longer use the gloss
- If you take it on vaca to a hot place like the Caribbean DO NOT use this gloss when tanning as it ended up aiding in the burning of my lips after a few days.
