Review & Swatchfest: glô·minerals Gloss in Poppy

glô·minerals Gloss in Poppy 
Poppy is an up-and-coming color (as confirmed by Allure) for the spring and summer months, and I'm all in favor of it. It's less severe than the tangerine that made it big last year and more interesting than all of the often-seen reds. Oh yeah, I can really get into this color and I think I'll start with glô·minerals Gloss in Poppy.

glô·minerals Gloss offers:

  • Exclusive antioxidant blend of vitamins A, C, E and green tea extract
  • Conditioning ingredients such as sunflower and safflower seed oil
  • Adds shine without stickiness

I never expect a gloss to last full force more than two hours, or past the first cup of coffee, so I wasn't shocked when that's about when it wore off. For me, glosses are judged on both stickiness and conditioning factors. glô·minerals' gloss managed to be relatively high-shine without being majorly sticky. Poppy is an orange-tinged medium red with a hint of pink and offers relatively pigmented coverage without sinking into fine lip lines. While the gloss isn't intensely conditioning, I found my lips felt smoother and softer after it had worn off.

Overall, glô·minerals Gloss in Poppy is nice as far as glosses go. It's not too sticky and it manages to leave lips in better condition than they were in prior to application. For $16, it's not cheap. But, I would put it on par with a brand like MAC in terms of quality for the price.

How will you wear poppy next season?
