Hi-oh, Glossbabes! Hope you are all doing well out there in internet-land.
For today’s review, I picked DuWop Venom Gloss. I’m just going to say this right of the glossy bat. This is one of my all-time favorite glosses. I knew that before I picked it for today’s review but I was interested to put it through my test and then share it with y’all!
Like I’ve said before, I am always looking for good everyday work glosses. These I have been using for about a year and a half now, and it never gets better than when I can try out a new DuWop Venom Gloss color. This line currently comes in nine pretty, pretty colors. The one I use the most is Coral Tree, which is a very neutral, with a hint of shimmery peach shine. It looks great on my skin color, and I would suspect it would look good on most people because of its neutral qualities. As I was doing my research for this article, I saw that they also have a color named Buttercup, which is described on the DuWop website as a ‘light shimmery Champagne”. Mmmmm. Shimmery Champagne…
Oops, got distracted there for a minute. The pull of a new gloss can be strong!
I wear this gloss at least 3 times a week, whether it is to work, out running errands, or even out for a night on the town. It is long-lasting, has great texture and smack factor and does not need to be applied over and over again. It comes in a nice-sized (but not to big and bulky) tube that can be tossed in your bag or even in your clutch or (pocket!) when headed out on a Friday night (or a Tuesday, hee, hee).
DuWop Venom Glosses are plumping glosses, so you will fell that familiar sting of a plumper, so if you are sensitive to plumpers, you may want to try it out slowly. For some reason, I never think that any plumpers work on me, but I do enjoy the little tingle that they provide. You might have a different experience. The .35 ounce tube comes in at $18.00 and will last three to four months, even if you use it fairly frequently. According to the DuWop website“blending the same spicy concoction of cinnamon, wintergreen and ginger with skin softening ingredients like jojoba, avocado and sunflower oil, beeswax for protection, and green tea for soothing, Venom Gloss gives you full, soft, hydrated lips.” I would tend to agree with this. However, there is no mention of SPF, which I am finding is a sorely lacking ingredient in a lot of the products I am testing. This one is fragrance and taste-free. A plus for my personal preferences.
Honestly, I really can’t say enough good things about these DuWop Venom Gloss and really cannot find anything that I don’t like about them. Because I love them so much, use them so much, and have been using them so much, I am rating DuWop Venom Gloss the VERY FIRST five out of five smacks… Überglossable!
smooches and smacks!
