I went to Ulta recently and picked up a few new lip glosses to swatch. I had several nails break recently, so I'm waiting for them to grow out a bit more before posting more nail polish swatches. My nail beds are just so tiny, I think my nails look silly when they're cut short and painted. Anyway, one of the glosses I picked up was a Too Faced Sweet Sun Shines Lip Gloss. Swatches and review after the jump!
I made a swatch collage, so click the picture for easier reading and bigger pictures! I picked up Papaya Slushie, which is described on their website as coral. It's a bright, orangey color in the tube, and it goes on the lips a bit brighter than it shows in the pictures. One coat goes on nice, shiny, and a bit sheer, whereas two coats gives a more intense color, but still not opaque. I wish these pictures did better justice to the pigmentation, because it really is quite bright with two coats. I really like that it's not sticky, too. I've worn it a few times now, and it stays put pretty well unless you're eating/drinking/etc. In those situations, where you're actually touching something to your lips, it does transfer quite a bit. One thing I don't care for is the smell. I can't really describe it -- chalky, maybe? In any case, it has an unpleasant smell during application and shortly afterward. Luckily, though, it doesn't linger very long. Still, I wouldn't recommend it for those of you out there with sensitive sniffers. If you're looking for a bright, sparkly Summer lip gloss but don't want to go with something heavy and opaque, this would be a great option, as long as the smell doesn't bother you. If you're sensitive to that sort of thing, I'd definitely recommend seeking out a sample and taking a whiff before you commit to it. It also comes in a really nice shade of pink, and a nude if you don't care for corals as much as I do. Have you guys tried these glosses?
