As you may already be aware of, neons are in trend right now. Gosh, I see them everywhere, especially in clothing and nail polishes. However, when I came across neon lipglosses, I was like wow that's interesting! I just had to check it out.
I went back to Dots because I had received a coupon, haha. Yes, coupons are always an incentive for me. I always fall for that. I ended up buying more clothes but that will be on another post. When I was at the register to pay for my merchandise, I spotted these bright neon lipglosses and they were intriguing, especially the yellow one. It reminded me of a highlighter pen.
I asked the cashier if she tried these yet and she said she hasn't. I was wondering if these go on sheer but from looking at the tube, they look like they would be opaque. She told me to give them a try since they are only $1.50 each. At first, I was only going to get the pink one because I was like hmmm...I don't think I'll ever wear neon yellow or orange but given the low price, I decided to get them all just for kicks cause I thought they looked cool, lol....And because I wanted to share with you all.
They come in a squeese tube applicator. You will need to use a lip brush if you want more precise application. There is a pretty generous amount in each tube. 0.35 oz or 10ml to be exact.
Here are the swatches. My initial reaction was like WOAH! they are definitely opaque. What you see is what you get! I like the formula, it's thick but not too thick, non-sticky, and unscented. I was worried that the application may be blotchy and uneven but to my surprise, that was not an issue. I'm also happy that the color doesn't settle in my lip lines.
The orange one looks fierce. I like it but I will have to do a bold eye makeup look to be able to pull it off.
The pink one is definitely my favorite. It looks edgy but still wearable. It has this glow to it. I love it!
Ok, the yellow one is the least flattering to be honest but I just get a kick out of it because of it's such an unusual lipcolor. It turns more into a chartreuse color once on my lips. Maybe because of my natural lip color. Now, I think with the right eye makeup, I might be able to make this lipgloss look half decent.
My overall thoughts on these: they are crazy but cool lip colors. Wear them if you dare. The quality is definitely good and the price is dirt cheap. I wished they had lipsticks to match and that they had more colors, especially neon purple!
So now that you've seen the swatches, what do you think? Would you dare to wear neons on your lips?
