Oh my loving the idea of combining fresh breath with my lip glosses. There’s always some gimmick to be had isn’t there? And I admit I totally buy into it all which is why when I seen Covergirl WetSlicks Amazemint Lipgloss I was on top of it.
What is it?
Why, it’s a full color lip gloss with a minty fresh taste that’s supposed to freshen your breath and give you glossy lips! Might as well kill two birds with one stone right?
The formula is infused with Crest Peppermint Oil so it gives a super fresh taste to the gloss plus has a slight tingle. Whether it freshens my breath or not remains to be seen but the novelty is simply too cute, what? I love cute stuff. It’s quite tasty and quite strongly scented so I imagine it might give off a very faint pepperminty aroma if anyone comes near enough to take a little sniff. The two shades I tried were both highly pigmented so I deem it a full color gloss. Both shades apply as seen in the tube which is a plus as I do not need lipstick or stain underneath to aid the color in showing up. It gives lips a nice slick feels but nothing crazy glossy or mirror-like in finish, more along the lines of moisturizing and slippery for me. I tried Merry Berry which is a rosy peach shade and Everything’s Rosy which is a nice pearl pink shade. Merry Berry was my fav of the two as it’s a unique shade that leans towards being peachy and rosy, pretty.
The formula feels quite light and lovely on the lips but does run towards being runny and thin in its consistency. It also lacks a sticky, tacky feel which ends up making the gloss wear for a very short time. I’d say wear time was an hour at most maybe two if you got lucky!
Who Might Like It?
- Anyone who likes a full color lipgloss.
- Anyone who likes a gloss that’s light and fresh sans a sticky, tacky texture!
- Anyone who enjoys a cheaper gloss that won’t break the beauty budget.
- Anyone who enjoys the novel idea of a gloss that freshens your breath!
Who Might Not Like It?
- Anyone who likes their gloss to wear long.
- Anyone who’s a bit sensitive to strongly scented lipgloss.
- Anyone who doesn’t like peppermint flavored lipgloss.
I generally liked the gloss and thought it was great for days I’m not sporting full makeup or for tucking into my bag or desk drawer for quickie touch ups. Its wear time stinks so I can’t make full use of it on days I’m wanting my makeup to stick around for a while as it simply wears down way too quickly. But for a splash of color on my lips really quick I think it’s a fab a little gloss and the price can’t be beat at around $5 or less. If you’re looking for something inexpensive to keep around for quickie touch ups this might fill the need. Quite a nice gloss and would be near perfect if it wore longer!
