Elianto Sweet Kisses Lip Gloss Review

I am not a big gloss wearer because of the stickiness feeling they seem to leave on my lips. But, once in a blue moon, I do use glosses when the mood strikes me. So, on one fine day when I was shopping with my sister at Jusco Taman Maluri, we saw that Elianto was having a sale on their makeup products. I ended purchasing a tube of gloss and a tube of dual-ended lip tint (more on that later). FYI, I rarely step into Elianto's store because the salesgirls there tend to follow you around and readjusts the arrangements of any products that you touched. Really annoying! Grrr! Okay, enough of ramblings, let's get on to the review.

Packaging: The lip gloss comes in a standard translucent plastic squeeze tube with a screw on cap in red.  The nozzle is slanted for easy application. The tube weighs 10ml. The label on the tube is designed simplistically with lace patterns lined at the top and bottom of the tube. The ingredients is printed onto the plastic wrapping. The entire line of Sweet Kisses Lip Gloss is described as 'delicious, sweet lip gloss with a gorgeous shine''. The shade I chose is 01 Purple Rose.

Ingredients: Polybutene, Octyldodecanol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Hexyl Laurate, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Ceresin, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Simmondsa Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Hydrogenated Microcrystalline Wax, Cera Alba, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Butylparaben, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Fragrance, May contain Mica, Titanium Dioxide, CI45410, CI 77007, CI 77492, CI 77499, CI 77491, CI 19140.

Texture: The gloss has a thin jelly-like texture, almost like thick oil and is a bit on the runny side. It glides on very smoothly, surprisingly not oily at all on the lips. It gives a nice glossy sheen on my lips and it does not feel sticky. On the lips, the colour turns out to be very sheer plum. It made my lips feel moisturized as well which is a plus point. It smelled of subtly sweet grapes, but it has a yucky taste though.

My verdict: I am kind of on the fence about this one. It gives a nice sheer shade and is not sticky. Plus, it also hydrates my lips. For those gloss lovers out there who does not mind the taste might give this gloss a go, but for me, I don't think I would repurchase.

Price: You can get a tube of this gloss for RM9 at any Elianto's outlet.
