Fresh tubes of delicious, glistening glosses that add shine and flower power to any pout. In an array of colors that match our favorite, just-picked blossoms, these glosses glide on easily with tube-tip applicator.
Face Stockholm has released 8 shades of its Nektar lip gloss for the Summer 2012 season. This review is for the shade Prästkrage–a candy pink with shimmer. The Swedish word Prästkrage means “daisy.”
This lip gloss comes in a clear, plastic squeeze tube and has a slanted applicator.
Although the gloss looks like a bright, bubbly pink color in the tube, it is transparent and applies clear on the skin. The shimmers are rainbow-colored and quite girly. Unfortunately, the shimmers are made of actual glitter particles that create a gritty texture on the lips.
This gloss is not sticky and consists of a thin formula. It lasts about an hour on the lips before fading. The gloss also has a sweet smell to it. I can see it bothering those with sensitive noses or who don’t like sweet scents. Fortunately, I forgot about the smell after application, so the scent isn’t too strong.
Ease of Use: 10/10
Because the base color is clear, you don’t have to be careful when applying the gloss. The formula glides on effortlessly.
For $20.00 you get 0.45 ounces (13 ml). Lancome’s Juicy Tubes cost $18.00 and contain 0.5 ounces. Clinique’s Superbalm Moisturizing Glosses cost $15.00 and also contain 0.5 ounces. So you are paying more for the Nektar glosses and getting slightly less product.
