Lipstick is my makeup thing. Each colour makes something different in my mood and is the foundation of the persona I want to project. It’s the only makeup product I use up other than foundation, but everyone needs foundation. I’m a dry lips gal so I need creamy lipsticks and usually just wear glosses.
I was dismayed by the first round of juice gems. Not a single colour was appropriate for me (some had no colour at all or SPARKLES) except for the pomegranate one and then I didn’t like the tube. The slanted applicator was too big and I’d wind up with gloss smeared all over my chin and upper lip. Then mark. came out with 4 new “shades” and a different tube, longer and thinner.I look good in browns so I decided to try the apple spice mark. Juice Gems High Shine Lip Gloss It’s not brown at all. It’s a muddy mauve but that is also an excellent colour for me so onward ho! As you can see, this is not a brown colour like the official mark. site shows.
I smooched a super white napkin and left a pale pink-mauve lip print but it isn’t dark enough to scare my husband off from kissing me. The gloss wears off your lips very quickly even if you’re not eating.
I like the applicator and the gloss consistency but unless any of the other colours pan out, I’m sticking to the gloss gorgeous’.
