Don't you hate it when something really excites you and then doesn't come anywhere near meeting your expectations?
Well, that's how I felt about this Model Co Ultra Shine Lipgloss in Showgirl Red.
I received this gloss in a monthly sample box last month and got very excited. I'd heard such good things about this brand before and the gloss colour looked so pretty. I also loved the little touch of the mirror on the side as that is such a handy addition that every gloss or lipstick company should look into adopting.
But, that was where my excitement took a big nosedive. When I opened it up to test it out I found out that even though it looks so bright in the tube, the colour is almost non-existent when you try to apply it. There is only the slightest pink tinge to this gloss which really doesn't do it for me. I like my glosses to actually have a decent amount of colour, if I don't want colour I'll use a lip balm.
Of course if you're a fan of a 'barely there' gloss look then this product would be perfect for you. But, if you're like me and like your glosses with a bit more oomph then you may be disappointed as with this one as I was.
Has anyone else tried any other shades in this range? Did I just get a dud tube?
