POP Beauty Aqua Lacquer

Sticky lip gloss is high up on our list of beauty pet peeves, right next to cakey concealer and smudgy mascara. One gust of wind, and your hair is stuck all over your lips. No thanks, we’ll pass. We’ve become pretty picky about lip products, and these superlight, refreshing glosses make the cut. Created by the color pros at POP Beauty, they add a wash of sheer color and a high dose of shine, without that goopy, sticky feeling we all know too well.

Great formula, but I was not to crazy about the color I received.

Love it
Sampled

I never heard or used any POP product before getting the floating rose aqua lacquer in my box. It adds some plump to my lips without a harsh tingle. The color is not as bright as I expected, more on he sheer side which I really like. The applicator is a lot of fun too!

Good gloss, strange packaging
Sampled

Pop beauty has attempted to reinvent the wheel with the applicator in this lipgloss - it's a thin, floppy plastic paddle. For some super-sticky glosses this type of applicator might be useful, but not here: this lip lacquer is runny (actually kind of stringy) and would play well with a sponge-tip applicator or a simple squeeze-tip.
The gloss itself is gorgeous. I received Floating Rose, which is a sheer blush of reddish magenta. The product is shimmery and smells slightly like a candy cane. I didn't notice any tingling or plumping effects, but the gloss looks pretty on and spreads the way you would expect. There are really no surprises about the way it looks and wears - it's a solid staple lipgloss.

Pleasantly surprised
Sampled

I must admit that this is the first lip gloss I have used since the age of about 13. I've always preferred lipstick or nothing at all. At first look at the Flowering Fuschia color, I was disappointed that this was one of my box items because I figured I'd never use it. But I was incredibly pleasantly surprised! It goes on nicely, has the perfect amount of color without being too bright, stays on for a long time, and doesn't feel as sticky as some other glosses do. I also like that it doesn't have a fruity scent or taste-- just a nice, simple gloss.

I'm too old for this stuff
Sampled

I feel like this product is geared towards teenagers. I had a barbie doll pink color and the stuff was so glossy and SUPER sticky. I just need an effective lip color with moisturizer, not something that Katy Perry would endorse. But, hey, if you're into that sort of thing, then this is perfect for you! :)

The sample I received was flowering fuchsia. It appeared a bit bright in the tube, but actually went on quite lightly, which was great. Unfortunately, I found this product to be extremely sticky despite the product description provided by Birchbox.

Weird applicator
Sampled

Like the color and the packaging. But the applicator to brush on the lipgloss is a plastic stick. Makes it feel cheap and not as smooth as with a normal applicator.

glossy gloss
Sampled

If you like thick glossy lip colors, this is perfect. The spatula is a little awkward (euro/asian product design?) but seems easy to get used to. I really like floating rose, it is a transparent blushy red. You definitely need to reapply/smooth out after drinking or eating. The wax and other ingredients change consistency with temperature and tend to ball up but the color is gorgeous and it seems like it hydrates your lips in the long run.

Floating Rose: gorgeous, sheer, glossy, shimmery
Sampled

This gloss is absolutely beautiful. It's a sheer medium rosy pink with tiny shimmers throughout. POP Beauty has packaging that I associate with being a bit cheap-looking in its design, but I really like the applicator of this gloss. It's a clear flexible wand that makes it a breeze to spread the product evenly across my lips. The gloss itself has a slightly tacky feel that is a bit sticky but makes it quite long-wearing. This has a light sweet mint scent and feels slightly cooling upon application. I really adore how juicy and youthful this makes my lips look. Thank you Birchbox!

It's Lipgloss...

I didn't find anything remarkable about this stuff. My hair still sticks to my lips when it's windy and I'm wearing this stuff. The color is cute, but I wasn't blown away.
