Review: 17 Candy Collection Ultimate Volume Lip Gloss in Peach Melba

Hiya :)

Feels like ages since I've done a review! I've accumulated a few new bits and bobs recently so there will be a few reviews popping up now and again. I received this in a package from Karleigh (if you don't follow her already, why the devil not? ;P She's awesome!) and I have to say, the girl did good!


17 say: Curb your candy craving with 17 Ultimate Volume Lip Gloss, 8ml in either Butterfly Cake or Peach Melba. These sin-free treats contain all of the colour with none of the calories and will make your lips pop with frosted vibrant colour.

I say: I really, really love this lip gloss! It's a gorgeous colour, a lovely peachy coral shade. I applied this over a coral lippie and it really made my lips pop with colour. Huge thumbs up from me :D


Swatches in natural light

17 say: Nothing. But it's straightforward enough right?

I say: This gloss has a great wand with a nice sized applicator which is perfect for skimming over the lips. As for the gloss itself, (there's a swatch up there ^), it's beautifully pigmented and applies like a dream. It feels so smooth! And it's not sticky at all! And I didn't have that annoying stray hair stuck in lip gloss moment. Win!!
