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.

I'm not a big gloss person because I have really long wild hair that always manages to get stuck in it. This product promises not to be like that. I did the wind hair test and alas, my hair got stuck in it. I think it's just a fact about gloss we have to accept. Besides being sticky it's pretty good-it kind of tingles on your lips! I'll probably just stick with lipstick, but the sample is nice!

On the fence

I'm still trying to decide if I like this gloss or not. Thing I love about it are the feel on my lips (tingly/moistuizing) and the staying power... it even stayed on through my morning coffee. I was not impressed with the color, looks pretty in the tube but does nothing once applied ( Floating Rose ). As far as the applicator, I just can't get with it. I know it's supposed to be more precise but i feel like it's harder to work with. What makes it even more messy is how sticky the formula is. I probably wouldn't repurchase this for the price

Great Shine

I love that I got a full size lip gloss in my box this month; I can never have too many! This gloss is a bit thick, but it's super shiny and lasts quite a long time. It has this cool paddle applicator, but it can make putting the product on your top lip a bit challanging. Overall, the flowering fuchsia color I got was really bright in the tube but it was not too harsh when applied. I really liked it.

Wish the color POPped more

Was really excited about this product and liked the initial feel, scent, but was disappointed that I barely notices any color at all--will keep using though.

LIke it but not blown away

I really like the color and the jojoba oil. It's not too sticky and I only needed to use a small amount to get the job done. I'm not sure how I feel about the paddle applicator though. It was rough on my lips and I didn't feel like it made the application more precise.

loved this gloss
Sampled

I'm not usually a fan of lip gloss but this one made my lips plump and red like it advertised, without an overly gooey look.

Why the paddle?
Sampled

Overall this gloss was pretty average and comparable to many others. I found the paddle really pointless and difficult to use. I also found the packaging really childish, reminded me of Bonnie Belle days except minty in flavor.

Nothing too special

I feel this is like all other lip glosses and it definitely didn't plump.

Sticky, smells bad
Sampled

It's crazy sticky, smells a little like nail polish, and the color is for a tween. 100% disappointment.
