The Etude House Juicy Pop Tube costs only PhP128 which is about $3 or less. I tested about 3 or 4 tubes and chose the shimmery pink — the #13.
Turns out to be sheer and hardly made my lips look pink. I wasn’t expecting it to be pigmented, but not as disappointing as this. Also, it has too much glitters. I squeezed out a gunk of glitter one time. I wiped that off and, when I applied on my lips, my lips still became silver. *facepalms* That pissed me off because the glitters were hard to remove. Eventually, I learned that if you have the tube placed vertically in your pouch or bag, the cap part should be upward so the glitters would settle at the bottom.
See how it looks like there’s plastic on my lips?
I barely use the lip gloss anymore since, other than the glitters, it’s sticky. My lips feel like they would stick together.
The cheap price of the product is its only plus point. Overall, true lip gloss fans like me wouldn’t recommend it. They can make just nice gifts to young girls.
