Coastal Scents Smacks - Plum Crazy (Lipgloss)

November 12, 2009

Remember this? And Smacks was one of the haul item that I got some time back ago.

This pic was taken from their website.

And from the whole bunch of colors, I got this...

Plum Crazy~ This pic doesn't really help much, but after I saw swatches from TiffanyD, I picked this color coz it's closer to my dark sausage lips mrgreen

Here's how it looks like...

*I used this pic coz it looks nicer, and not because I'm going to compare with MAC lol*

Smacks.. the name sounds delicious.. smacking lips, yum yum mrgreen

I placed my MAC's lipglass here because I find this two comparable with their sizes. Length are almost the same, but in terms of the glosses, Coastal scents's Smacks are much lesser than MAC's lipglass.

Plum Plum Crazy :D The name is so cute!

Don't the color looked pweeetty? lol

The brush tip.

Brush tip with the color...

I don't know if this is my preference, but I think this color is so wild and berry.. like my old nick - Wildberry cool

or maybe blackcurrent or ribena color. :P See the shimmers ? Nice nice nice!

On my thicky lips.

Smooth n' shiny right? And it does feel that way!

Ok lah, I put my face photo if this is not enough, but please excuse the nerdy nerdy me as usual. cool

The Product:1.5grams/.053oz (1.5grams even lesser than MAC's LE version of lipglass!!)
Price: $2.95
Made in: China

My thoughts about it:
I like this more than my NYX round lipglosses. Let's not compare with MAC's lipglasses first, shall we? I like this is because the lipgloss stays on much longer than NYX round lipglosses. I think it is because of its thick and a little sticky consistency of this gloss. Because it is not as runny as NYX round lipglosses, I can control the way I applied it on my lips (I normally apply out of the lip lines =.= this is not on purpose you know, some more I have to wipe it off with a tissue/cotton bud). I'm not sure if all the glosses from Coastal Scents are the same or not, I feel that this gloss have the "shinny gloss" effect to my lips, like those car wax, and it sticks on to the lips like it's being laminated onto the skin (okay, I'm not good in describing okay rolleyes).

Maybe this is expensive as NYX round lipglosses is $2 for 2.5ml. Also, it has a very very faint plasticky waxy smell (if you really smell it).
Other than that, I dislike the brush tip lah. Here's why...

Seeeeee!!!! I like the NYX brush tip better! This frays like crazy~ argh!

Overall, even the brush does fail miserably, but I still like the color of this! razz
