Love Clover PopChu Gloss Review & Swatches

Remember I was telling you about Love Clover’s PopChu Gloss a few weeks ago? CLICK! The Muse couldn’t resist it’s evil lure for long and she ended up purchasing a Lover Clover PopChu Gloss in Strawberry Pink for herself.

Honestly, who can resist lipgloss that looks and supposedly tastes like a lollipop? Come on! What sort of willpower do you think I possess?

The Muse is here to say that she simply ADORES Love Clover PopChu Gloss but doubts that many others will. As great as the gloss is it probably won’t be too popular with those who do NOT love Sony CP lipgloss as the formulas are pretty similiar. If you love thick, sticky, and tacky glosses you’ll fall right into love with Love Clover Popchu however if you’re not a big lover of glosses with such a formula you might wish to avoid it.

Although I normally have no tolerance for sticky, thick glosses I actually really love the formula of this gloss. It’s thick, it’s tacky, and it’s sticky but it stays in place and manages to make my lips look fuller for 4 to 5 hours straight without touching up. You might be excited by the fact that finally Japanese lipgloss has a flavor! Wahooo! You may know already or know from reading my past reviews that many Japanese brands do not flavor glosses however this actually does have a flavor however it’s possibly not as pleasant as think. Lollipops? No. Strawberry? Kinda but not really. Sweet? Mmm sorta….honestly it kinda tastes like strawberry plastic if the Muse knew what strawberry flavored plastic tasted like that is! I don’t find the taste particularly thrilling but I don’t hate it either! It is what it is and I’m not particularly delighted or disappointed in the long run! The gloss is pink however that doesn’t make it pigmented enough to show through on lips. It applies rather sheer and gives just a tiny hint of the pink shade the gloss sports but that’s fine by me as it makes for ease of use over darker lipsticks! The applicator is the standard spatula style which 80% of Japanese glosses sport. I love this style of applicator as it allows for easy glide of the gloss across the lips and builds gloss up easily!

All in all I think it’s a rather nice little gloss and I imagine I will repurchase it when I run low. It’s a tad bit expensive at $13 USD or so which is the retail cost in Japan however I’m unsure if it’s really worth picking up if you find it online marked up. I do like it very much but the price is iffy for it’s size. If you can nab it at retail or cheaper the Muse thinks it’s worth checking out, especially if you’re a big lover of Sony CP lipgloss as the formulas and texture are quite similiar!
