Totally purple with Dose of Colors lipgloss in Toxic

I just got a new toy to play with :)

Dose of Colors
After seeing this photo of swatches from Amy of Sugarpill, I knew I had to try one. And the one I wanted the most was Toxic, the deep plummy purple shade.

As you can see, the packaging and stuff is really cute. The tip of the lipgloss has some pretty swirly-funnel thingy in it that looks really pretty, and the color is visible through the tube.

The gloss is REALLY pigmented. That was one swipe on my hand. The texture is light and slick, and not sticky. To me it is more like a liquid lipstick than a gloss, but, you know, not quite a liquid lipstick. It's like OCC's Lip Tar but with a little less staying power (wipes off cleanly and easily and leaves the faintest of stains). There's a faint sweet scent if you sniff the wand (which I did, and is that weird?), but I didn't notice much scent or taste when I wore it.

Since I'm already wearing purple eye makeup today, I decided to just put it on :)

Yeah, I'm kind of already in love with this. I have a worry that it won't stay on very long, but it's all good. Lip products never last long on me anyway unless they're SUPER staining.

I'm going to have to order more of these, aren't I...? I think these are going to be my new favorite lipgloss.

Here's a pic I took earlier in the day of my eye makeup.
