philosophy Peppermint Bark Lip Gloss

"Disclosure: This product was given to me as a birthday present. As always, my opinion is honest and of my own."  Complete disclosure here

Hello, lovelies~ I rarely review a lip gloss, but I have been using this a lot recently that I thought I'd share my thoughts on this. I received this from a lovely friend , Sha, as a birthday present this year. I was surprised to receive it, truth be told (Thank you, Sha!). Anyway, let's continue with the review, shall we?

The lip gloss comes in a clear plastic squeeze tube with a black lid on the end. It has the information inscribed on the tube. I like glosses that comes in a squeeze tube because it won't make the applicator dirty. I tend to clean any gloss applicator with tissue paper before placing it back in, but I won't have to do that with this one.

With the help of sunflower seed oil and beeswax, this gloss gives a moisturizing feel to my lips. The scent is true to its name (Peppermint Bark), which is a slightly sweet chocolate mint scent. If you're not a fan of mints, then you best stay away from this because it tastes quite minty.

As for the shade, Peppermint Bark looks like a deep shade of red with micro gold-red shimmers in the tube. However, I find that it applies sheer on the lips and swatched on the back of my hand. The amount of shine on my lips is perfect and it isn't too sticky for me.

Overall, philosophy Peppermint Bark is a lipgloss that gives a nice shine to the lips while moisturizing it at the same time. It doesn't feel sticky on my lips unlike other glosses, so I am definitely looking into these babies for other shades. Plus, Christmas is coming, so maybe they have Christmas-related shades and scents? ^_^

Have you tried any of philosophy's high shine lip glosses? Do you have any favorite scents? Let me know in the comments below as it would really help me out. Have a great day and until then, I'll see you later~
