Review : The Color Workshop: Lip Gloss

Today I will review some lip glosses by The Color Workshop that I bought a few weeks ago.
The Color Workshop is a cheap make-up brand that you can buy at some drugstores (Kruidvat and Trekpleister) in the Netherlands.
The prices of their products are low, but the quality isn't that great either.

I bought a set of lip glosses for a few euro's (probably didn't cost me more than €2,-).
Each lip gloss contains 3,3 ml of gloss, and sadly, there aren't any names or numbers on it to tell you what color it is :S.

Anyway, I have a clear gloss and a peach gloss with glitters and shimmer :D.

The clear gloss looks really clear on my lips:

It doesn't feel sticky and the lasting power is ok.
I think this one is nice to wear over a lipstick.

I like the shimmery peach a lot better!
It isn't as pigmented as I hoped it would be, but it does give my lips a bit of colour and some nice shimmer :D.

(Sorry for the blurry pic, but it shows the colour well, and also the shimmer!).
The colour is subdued and the shimmer isn't too much, so this gloss is great for wearing to work or school and when you can't/don't want to wear too much make-up.

The glosses smell sweet and fruity (which I like) and aren't sticky.
Also they last longer than I expected.

*nice smell
*lasts long enough
*nice subtle gloss

*even though it's cheap, the glosses are very small!
*there aren't any numbers or names on the glosses to tell you which colour it is
*the glosses are a bit difficult to open
*they aren't very pigmented, so if that's what you are looking for this isn't for you.

Conslusion: cheap lip gloss that smells nice and looks ok. They aren't sticky and last ok, but the glosses are small and don't have any name/numbers and aren't very pigmented.
This probably isn't suited for most people, but it's nice if you don't like to wear make-up very often and want it to be subtle, and also to give to children/teenagers as their first lip gloss.

Rating: I would rate this a 6, since it ain't bad but not good either.

Would I buy this product again: no.

Have you tried anything by The Color Workshop?

Until next time,
