NYC Limited Edition Kiss Gloss in Spring Meadow
(retail: $2.99, 0.31 oz)
As you can see, this gloss is a lovely mint green color with very fine green glitter.
Standard slant-tip applicator
When first squeezed, you can definitely see the green tint to this gloss:
But once you spread it across the skin, it quickly become clear and only the very fine green glitter is visible:
I must have tried 20 times to photograph this gloss on my lips, but the green glitter (which is visible in person) doesn't show up in my photos. In real life, you CAN see the green glitter, and it produces a very subtle, but pretty effect on the lips. HOWEVER, the green tint of this gloss actually becomes clear once applied. I have to apply a ridiculously thick and impractical coat in order to see even a hint of green tint on my lips.
The formula of Kiss Glosses is nice. The don't feel heavy or sticky on the lips and provide some nice shine. Staying power is average (I can get about an hour of wear with most tube lipglosses of this nature and this one's no different) and the glitter stays put without migrating.
If you've never tried an NYC Kiss Gloss before, they have a fruity fragrance and flavor that reminds me of Juicy Fruit gum.
FINAL VERDICT: Don't run around town looking for this one. The idea of a green gloss is intriguing but, once on the lips, this gloss produces nothing more than very fine green glitter in a clear base. It's pretty when on the lips, but it doesn't deliver the color you see in the tube.
