I was somehow lusting over those cute new Love Clover Pop Chu Glosses ever since I saw them but just never ordered one. I am just not really into Love Clover even though they have some nice items (I really love their blushes!)
When I ordered last time from Ichibankao I was browsing the store and decided to finally give a try to the gloss in Vanilla Beige which looked like a pretty nude beige.
The Pop Chu Glosses look like lollipops which is a cute idea in my opinion.
the have a stiff plastic spatula applicator which is fine (I prefer the softer flexible kind you find in other glosses like those from Maquillage, Ipsa, Intergrate etc. though).
The color is a pretty sheer peach beige with fine shimmer. The gloss carries enough pigment for my taste and has a very thick and sticky texture. This means it stays on very well unlike other runnier glosses.
Sounds all pretty good but what I just can't get over is the ghastly scent of this gloss.
It smells like plastic orange vomit. Errr, that's at least what I imagine it would smell like. It's so disgusting I get shivers when I just sniff the spatula.
I am really disappointed as I had expected some nice vanilla scent but not yucky rotten oranges!
So big nay from me, there are other glosses in this color that are not scented or fragranced with a nice yummy aroma.
I paid about US$20 incl. shipping. I think the retail for this is somewhere around 1200 Yen or so.
