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 gloss for every day
Sampled

This is a nice gloss with some nice ingredients that make your lips feel great. I would probably try in a different shade than the sample, which was a brighter pink. Nice gloss for every day wear.

Nice But...
Sampled

Got the fuschia in my Birchbox and I love flattering pinks, so was very excited. It's a pretty, sheer shade (have no fear if the color in the tube seems scary) but it's actually a touch too sheer for my taste. It's super glossy and that aspect definitely has some staying power, but it comes with a bit of a heavy, sticky feel that I just didn't care for.

Too sticky
Sampled

I'm not a huge fan of very sticky lip glosses and this one is one of the stickiest. I'd prefer a smoother application.

Great color, great shine but did not last long
Sampled

As with many lip glosses the color just did not last. 2 minutes into the date and it was gone. However the color and shine is amazing.

Long-lasting, uber-glossy, with a nice hint of mint.
Sampled

I like this gloss very much, though there are a few things I'd change if I could. The applicator is a bit awkward - I'd rather a brush or squeeze applicator, but this is very minor. Once on, the gloss is very nice - it's seriously shiny, has a strong pop of color, a nice hint of mint & tingle, and the stuff really has staying power. I wish Birchbox had sent me a color that wasn't so bright, but that's nothing against the product itself. I'm considering buying this in another shade.

extra glossy!
Sampled

Love the shade. It comes on much more neutral than I expected from the bright color in the packaging. Isn't sticky at all, but gives a great shine!

perky, flirty, and fun!

I received the flowering fuchsia shade in my October Birchbox and I'm pleased to say it is exactly the shade I would have chosen for myself! My skintone lends itself to warm shades like peaches and corals, and this is definitely close to that family. The color reminds me of a watermelon flavored hard candy. I don't usually wear a whole lot of makeup, so it would probably be too intense for me if it weren't sheer. The fact that it is means the color and intensity can be customized easily to fit different occasions, which I like. I usually don't wear lip glosses, partially because of the wind/hair in face problem, and partially because I find them a bit flashy sometimes. I like that this is supposed to be less of a problem with the wind thing, though I haven't tested this. It did feel less sticky than some, though. As for flashiness, I wouldn't wear it heavily applied for work, but I can't say it wouldn't be appropriate for sure--just not my style. Lightly applied or even blotted with a tissue, I think it's sweet and subtle enough for any occasion.

Not Bad!
Sampled

I had always been curious about Pop, so I'm glad I was finally able try it. I got Floating Rose, which is (thankfully) much brighter than it looks online. I personally, like the paddle applicator, it made getting a precise line around the lip much easier.

Not a lipgloss fan

I don't see why anyone would want to wear gloss, its just messy. I tried it to see if it plumps and just how it will look on me. Pretty color, i feel it tingling my lips so i guess thats its way of plumping. Ill give to a friend =)
