Ahh another completely pointless product! What would life be like without them?
I purchased Smashbox O-Gloss and have been using it daily for two weeks prior to sitting down to write this review and I’m still somewhat speechless as to what to say about it.
It pretty much lacks in all departments so save your pennies and don’t bother.
First of all the texture isn’t fabulous. It’s not tacky and it’s not sticky and let me tell you it’s definately not glossy. I really can’t think of a good way to describe how it feels going on. It just feels somewhat blah! It has virtually no shiny factor to it at all and it sorta kinda dries my lips a little bit.
The gloss is clear and it’s supposed to “match” your true color and of course I wasn’t expecting much as we all know how much of drama comes with Smashbox O-Glow but it’s safe to say that there isn’t any drama with O-Gloss as it’s completely and utterly clear and doesn’t change color at all, at least it didn’t for me. When you apply O-Glow at least it turns from clear to a delicate shade of pink upon contact with your skin but I can’t claim the same for the gloss. It virtually stays clear in the tube and on your lips. I’ve gotten no color at all from it. Zip, Zero, Nada!
Have I ended up with a bad tube? It’s possible as I’ve heard other reviews stating it changes to a bubblegum pink when applied but on me I just get the same dull flesh colored lips! Mind you I’ve been playing with it daily for the past few weeks and it doesn’t change at all! I wouldn’t mind bubblegum pink at least it’s color but it’s clear on me, completely clear!
The tube is $22 USD and definately not worth it as it’s a smaller size then your standard gloss plus it doesn’t perform the way it promises. Hell, I wouldn’t mind the price so much if it actually worked.
Sorry Smashbox I have to give this one a big thumbs down!
Not worth your cash, stay clear!
