Colourpop So Juicy Plumping Gloss ($7) is a new plumping lipgloss that launched in a variety of shades a few months ago. I purchased three of these when they launched but I’m just now getting around to reviewing them since the formula was one I wasn’t sure I loved or hated. I’m still technically not sure! It’s sort of a hit or miss love hate relationship I’m having with this formula.
Ok, so, first off and most importantly Colourpop So Juicy Plumping Gloss is such a throw back to makeup days of old. That’s one reason I really love these. They just remind me of the 80s. I didn’t grow up in the 80s but I’m no stranger to thick lipglosses that came in squeeze tubes. It seems like a rite of passage that after the Bonne Bell obsession ended in childhood you’d enter into your teens by experimenting with plenty of super thick lipglosses with majorly shiny formulas.
Colourpop pretty much nails the formula when it comes to thick and super glossy glosses no doubt. This formula is crazy thick, sticky AF, and majorly shiny. Gotta love all that! I think a lot of people won’t love how thick these are. It’s that formula that you have nightmares your hair will get caught in or you’ll have stringy bits of it between your lips when you talk. Sorry, not to be gross but it’s true! Colourpop loads it up with a cool, crisp mint flavor and fragrance that’s quite tasty and might just irritate your lips into plumping up. I don’t really see anything else that might actually add volume to lips other than some mint irritation and of course, the really thick, thick texture of the gloss which indeed will give your lips a plumped up appearance. I didn’t notice any sting or burning from the mint.
So, we got shine, we got volume, how about color? I picked three gorgeous nude shades but they actually all look the same on my lips (aside from one shade called She’s Here that sort of gave me a zombie lip look). There isn’t a ton of color in these shades. That isn’t to say all the colors in the range are like this but the ones I selected were pretty sheer and disappointing in color pay off. None the less, they look pretty amazing on top of lipstick.
I think the bad part of the formula is how sticky and thick these are. The formula isn’t weightless and you pretty much can feel how heavy it is through the wear. Speaking of wear, they do wear a pretty long at around four hours which isn’t too bad for a lipgloss.
So yeah, it’s a love hate type of thing I have going on here. I love how they make my lips look super shiny and very full but the formula is really heavy and super thick which I thought made it difficult to spread and apply. But what is it they say about beauty? Beauty is pain!
Colourpop So Juicy Plumping Gloss is available now.
Do you love or hate it?
Colourpop So Juicy Plumping Gloss is a plumping lipgloss available in a wide assortment of shades that are housed in a squeeze tube with a slanted applicator for application. Each gloss is 0.335 oz in size and $7 each. This is a throwback lipgloss from days of old that has a very thick and super shiny formula. The shine factor is one of the biggest draws and nicest features in this formula in my opinion. I wasn’t too keen on the really, really thick formula which did make lips look full but was rather heavy on my lips. The formula wears for a solid four hours but the lack of pigment and thickness of the formula did disappoint me.
