Pretty little pots: Daiso Rose Jewelry Lip Gloss

I was wandering through my local Daiso store in search of Japanese snacks when I found these little lip gloss pots which were just too pretty to resist!

These are very appropriately called 'Rose Jewelry Lip' because of their ridiculously pretty packaging.  The lid is faceted like a jewel while the bottom of the pot is moulded to the shape of a rose.  I think these look deceptively more expensive than their $2.80AUD price tag:

There are five shades in the range.  I chose Fresh Peach and Happy Pink because they were the softer shades in the selection.  It's recommended on the pack these are best applied with a lip brush (not supplied) but they can just as easily be applied with a fingertip for a softer finish.  The texture of these glosses are like softened butter and the finish is shiny without looking too wet with a hint of shimmery sparkle.  The wear time is average and you'd need to reapply after about an hour or so.  What I did find a little weird was the slightly grainy feeling on the lips and I can only think it's due to the shimmer particles.

L - R:  Fresh Peach, Happy Pink

-beautifully packaged
-can be applied with fingertip or brush
-medium pigmented so can be worn on its own or layered
-shiny finish but not sticky, gloopy or wet
-does not bleed but fades gradually leaving a slight sparkle on the lips
-five shades available:  fresh peach, happy pink, elegant honey, soft scarlet, rich red
-only $2.80AUD each

-shimmery shades feel 'grainy' on the lips
-no fragrance (this isn't necessarily a con!)
-needs regular reapplication

Would I buy these again?
Yes, probably more for the cute packaging than anything.  I also think these would make lovely stocking fillers for Christmas.

Until next time.
