Hello lovely ladies.
After 6 months of saving up my Boots points I decided to spend some of them on treat rather than using them for shampoo or you know, something useful! I had something in mind, so here it is!
I treated myself to the Benefit Sugarbomb Ultra Plush Lip Gloss in Sugarbomb. I have been excited about these since I first heard about them, but waited to try them until I had enough Boots points to cover one (anyone else think they should let you use your points for part payment?!). Lip gloss isn't something I often find myself lusting after but the colours of these looked super exciting.
Firstly I just wanted to say how much I adore the the packaging for this lip gloss. I love the way it looks like a melting ice cream! Its a soft plastic with a strong metal lid.
The applicator is a large slanted nozzle with a wide hole to squeeze from product out from. I like this kind of applicator but it is easy to squeeze just a bit too hard and end up with way too much product, but I prefer than to one where you can't get more than a drop out, which tends to be when your in a rush and squeeze to hard, put the cap back on and come back to a half exploding lip gloss making everything in your bag sticky.
So here's the swatch! When I went in to Boots I originally thought I would want the Dandelion gloss as that is my usual type of colour, but it was such a soft pink it may as well have been any old clear gloss on my lips. But when the sales assistant put this one on me I knew I wanted this one. It's a dark pink / nude colour with a lot of shimmer. It also has a very gentle taste which is almost orangey! But the best thing about these lip glosses? They aren't sticky! I hate, hate HATE sticky lip glosses (I'm looking at you Soap & Glory Sexy Motherpucker, won't even come off with a make up wipe! Motherpucker indeed...) but the Benefit gloss glides on really smoothly and feels almost like a lip balm.
These retail at £13.50 each or 1350 advantage card points.
