In my Candy Coat Gel Polish Monthly Subscription of February I received this Lip Candy in the colour Chloe. This item was a total surprise for me and I was so excited to receive it! Let’s take a look at it…
I would usually list the ingredients in the product, but I was not able to find them for this one. They’re not on the packaging and they’re not listed on the Candy Coat product page. Or anywhere else on the site for that matter.
Candy Coat calls this a “matte lipgloss” (taken from the title in the tab), which I honestly don’t get because a gloss is supposed to be SHINY, right??? Anywho, this is how they describe these mattes:
Buttercream vanilla scented lip candy
Gorgeous shade provides rich colour in a matte finish for all day wear
Drys and applies beautifully
This lippie has a slanted doe foot applicator that works well.
This lippie smells really nice. I would not have guessed buttercream vanilla, but it’s definitely sweet and dessert-like.
The formula really is creamy and dries to a matte finish. It’s comfortable to wear because I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything and my lips don’t feel dry. That being said, I’ve never worn this lippie for longer than four hours because I have only tried it at home (due to the colour).
Since it dries down it will not transfer to cups or lips. 😉 I spent an afternoon sipping water and it remained intact, never transferring to my bottle. However, eating an apple did remove a little bit off of the inner rim on my lower lip.
Chloe is a very pastel baby pink that I would almost call a pink-ish white. It’s quite pigmented too, this swatch on my hand is one swipe.
As you can see this is quite the pale shade, and I feel it’s a bit too pale for this forty-something lady. 😉 If I was still in my twenties I would totally rock this shade though, but I just don’t feel like it’s for me anymore.
That being said, I really like the formula and I hope I receive more shades in future boxes because there are definitely some that I would love to wear! They even have shiny glosses – Brielle is right up my alley!
What do you think of this colour, is this something you would wear?
