I feel like I’m really slow with putting out reviews LOL, but I finally have a review to share :D. I will be reviewing the Innisfree Juicy Gloss Pencils, which sparked my June haul because colour changing things fascinate me * A*.
I got 4 out of 5 of them.
★ #1 Tropical Lemon
★ #2 Cheongpodo Aid (green grape)
★ #4 Grapefruit Puree
★ #5 Cherry Soda
It also comes in #3 Strawberry Sorbet
I didn’t purchase Strawberry Sorbet because the swatch in the item information in the listing looked like a slightly cooler version of the Green Grape (baby pink).
They didn’t come with any additional packaging with product information, so I don’t know what ingredients are in it. There was a sticker on the lid so you know someone didn’t tamper with it. The cap is decorated with a cute fruit print that just screams summer!
You have to twist the bottom to get more product, just like a lipstick or a lip crayon. The manufacture date can also be found at the bottom.
Tropical Lemon and Green Grape are really sheer, so I was a little disappointed with them. Tropical Lemon is a warmer shade of pink than Green Grape. But you can’t really tell once it’s applied (as seen in my lip swatches OTL), so you’re better off buying one or the other if you’re interested in them, since the only key difference is the scent. Those two are comparable to a lip balm, rather than a lip stick/crayon. Tropical Lemon and Green Grape is good for those looking for a low key lip colour, instead of a solid colour. They give a sheer hint of pink to your lips without it looking like you’re wearing a lip colour. I think they smell the best out of all the ones I purchased * u *.
On the other hand, Cherry Soda and Grapefruit Purée do not disappoint, because they are pigmented and true to colour. It only takes one swipe for a solid colour! I don’t have many orange lip products, so Grapefruit Puree is a good addition to my collection :D. Strawberry Sorbet is like Cherry Soda and Grapefruit Purée in terms of pigmentation, since it doesn’t have to oxidize into a colour like the colour changing ones. So I kind of wish I purchased that instead of Tropical Lemon or Green Grape.
They last for a few hours before drying out. Cherry Soda tends to leave a tint after drying out completely. I like to use that one for the gradient lips since I feel that Benetint can be a tad drying >__<.
– None. EFFECTIVENESS: ★★★★★ (for Cherry Soda & Grapefruit Puree) / ★★★★ (for Green Grape & Tropical Lemon)
OVERALL QUALITY: ★★★★★
