Pink Diamonds (Pink icicle)

Cake's diamond lip gloss is available in three different colors. They each smell wonderful like yummy cake. The cap of the tube has an attached brush to help guide the gloss on your lips. There are some harmful ingredients in this gloss. This gloss is sticky, but not too sticky. My issue with this gloss is that it burnt my lips.
Color selection, smells wonderful, and brush included to spread the gloss.
Burnt my lips, sticky, and some of the ingredients.

extremely useful review


Diamond lip gloss is a thick lip gloss used to add shine to your lips. There are added sparkles to help give you lips and extra shine. It has an alluring scent of cake. This gloss goes on clear and is long lasting. The gloss can be worn on its own or added on top of your usual lip make up. This is a great lip gloss for those who like to have great smelling lips, a colorless shine, and a thicker gloss. Be sure to check the ingredients list for allergy causing ingredients.

Cake's diamond lip gloss comes in a 0.4oz tube. There are three different color choices, creamy white, gold glimmer, and pink icicle. This review will cover pink icicle.

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

Cake lip balm is a thick lip balm. It feels gummy and sticky on your lips, but the sticky doesn't make your lips stick together or stop you from rubbing your lips together. The gloss is easily spread with the brush that comes in the tube. Once applied it says in place well.

Taste / Aroma

As soon as you open the tube of gloss you get the wonderful smell of cake. The smell reminds me of birthday cake ice cream. This is not an overwhelming or unpleasant smell. The smell is more of a vanilla frosting cake, but this is a wonderful aroma. This stays present on your lips, but can only be smelt by those who are very close to you.

If you taste this, you will note that it taste like oils. This is not super unpleasant, but it is not a good taste either. I don't recommend licking your lips with this gloss on.


This gloss goes on colorless, but it adds shine and sparkles to your lips. It is long lasting, depending on what you are doing. If you are a lip licker, constantly rub your lips together, eat or drink, or talk a lot this will wear the lip gloss away, but it lasts a decent amount of time. You will need to reapply it when you feel it is needed. If you want to remove this gloss use a damp rag for the best results.

For me this product was not good. It burnt my lips as soon as I put it on. I looked over the ingredients list and can't pick out what would be the cause, but something made my lips burn. As soon as I removed the gloss using a damp rag the burning went away. I won't be using this gloss again.

Follow-up commentary
I gave this gloss to my niece alone with all the other glosses I had that I didn't like. This gloss gave me an allergic reaction. I refused to wear it after that. I won't be trying any other cake lip products.
