A Sticky Mess

Shine On is a great gloss for those who battle lip licking or constant rubbing of your lips. It also last through drinking, eating, talking or smoking, but it is thick, sticky, and messy. If you like this in a gloss than this is for you. The Plump effect it gives your lips is lovely, but with that sticky mess it is not for me.

Use

The Shine on Lip gloss is lip gloss to add shine to your lips with a hint of color. There are a variety of colors to pick from. This is not the kind of gloss that most men are going to want to use due to the very feminine appearance and colors of this product. The gloss is effective in adding extra shine to your lips and providing a plump appearance. It is very thick, slick, and last a long time, but it is also very sticky and hard to get off. If you are looking for a gloss that doesn't come off even with constant licking, this is your gloss, however if you want something that isn't sticky and messy this is not for you.

The added ingredient of Sweet Almond Oil could be an allergy causing ingredient to those allergic to nuts.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Shine On is very thick and sticky. When you squeeze some out onto your lips and begin to spread it, you notice that it requires more than than you originally thought. It takes a decent amount to fully cover your lips. It is very sticky, so rubbing your lips together is not as easy as most glosses. When you squeeze it out of the tube you notice that it doesn't move, there is nothing runny about this gloss what so ever. It reminds me of sticky thick hair gel like this. When the gloss begins to dry, your lips will also dry and this requires reapplication of the gloss.

Taste / Aroma

I have the Nude color, this has a dessert like smell to it, which is similar to vanilla cake, but it doesn't taste like this. The taste isn't bad in small amounts, but if you lick a decent amount it is very nasty tasting that is not describable.

Performance

If you want a very long lasting lip gloss that can outlast lip licking, eating, talking, or any other oral activities Shine On is it. However if you don't like thick or sticky this gloss is not for you. I personally do not like this gloss at all. I think it is too thick. I like to rub my lips together many times a day and this gloss just doesn't allow me to do that without the feeling my skin is going to rip. It does go one mostly clear and does provide a nice plumpness to my lips, but it leaves my lips very undesirable for kisses. It makes a mess if you want to take a drink out of your glass, smoke a cigarette, or kiss anyone, but the plus side is that you could use it to leave kisses on your love notes. When you want to wash off it requires a damp rag and some scrubbing. As you can see in the photo it goes on just about clear, but with a hint of color.



Packaging


The gloss comes in a 15 mL tube that is inside of this box. This box has the ingredient list on it, but nothing else that is useful. The tube has a slanted dispenser with a hole in the middle, so you can use it to apply to your lips much easier without your fingers.

Follow-up commentary
This lip gloss was never my favorite. I don't use it anymore. I don't recommend it either. I have given it to my niece. Who is 4, so she play dress up with it.
