Hi everybody! Hope you all had a great day!! I have been thinking the past couple of days of how I want to move forward with my blog. I am totally makeup obsessed, and being that I am new at blogging, I am pretty disorganized. I am going to hold off on doing product reviews from shopping trips for now and stick mainly to reviewing items from my subscription boxes. Let me know your thoughts on that. Your feedback would be much appreciated.
Ok, so on to the product. This is a lip gloss that I received in my Boxycharm subscription. It retails for $15. I have never heard of this brand before, but when I saw it in my box I was really excited! One thing about me is a am a huge sucker for packaging. I thought this packaging was really cute, and different! I also love the pink and silver combo.
I always do my homework on products I am using and I wanted to learn a little about this brand. This formula is Vegan, Cruelty-Free, Paraben Free, Phthalate Free & Gluten Free. I was happy to see that not only is the product cute, but it has many of the qualities I prefer in a lip product.
The website says that it is vanilla scented, and I do want to warn you, if you are sensitive to scent you may not like this. It does smell vanilla-ish. It’s hard to put it in to words but it doesn’t smell like pure vanilla. For me, the scent is not bad, but it’s not great either. I prefer this over the lip products that have that makeup smell to them, that is one smell I can’t tolerate.
The application was smooth and the product applied evenly. For a lip gloss this was very opaque. I found it to be comfortable on the lips, it is not sticky at all. I wish I could share what shade I have, but the shade is not listed on the package. The shade I got works well with my complexion. I have looked these up online and if you like bold colors, like purple for example, they have some shades you may be interested in. Those are too bold for my taste, but I can see some people loving those shades. I am interested in the shade ‘primavera’. The following pictures were taken from Allegory Story’s website to show you some of the many options they have available. Their website is linked below.

This brand also offers some matte liquid lipsticks and metallic liquid lipsticks. You can see more of what this brand has to offer by clicking here.
Overall: The lip gloss is really nice. It does not have any magic staying power to it but it is a very comfortable and pigmented gloss. I am not sure what bad to say about this other than some may not like the scent. This is not to slippery of a gloss, nor is it sticky. It’s a decent gloss. It may be too pigmented for some peoples taste in a gloss. I liked it. My collection is stacked full right now, but I am definitely intrigued by this brand. The formula is nice and the packaging is awesome in my opinion. I am very curious to try a matte, a metallic, and the gloss shade I listed above. This is a brand I will keep in mind.
