Review: Holika Holika Honey Bouquet Shine Gloss in SRD801 Pretty Red

Hi everyone! Today's review is going to be on this Holika Holika Honey Bouquet Shine Gloss. The colour I got is SRD801 Pretty Red. Although the name of this lip gloss is pretty red, the colour itself leans more towards a darker pink with purple glitter.



This lip gloss has a doe-foot applicator and a ribbon on the cap. And tbh, this gloss smells nothing like honey LOL! One word to describe the scent is sweet. It legit smells so sweet that it's almost sickly sweet :S but the good thing is that the scent doesn't last that long on the lips.

When applied on the lips, the gloss isn't as pigmented as swatched on the hand but it still looks very pretty and more pigmented than some other glosses. The feeling and consistency of this gloss is sticky and feels a bit thick on the lips but I usually apply a very light layer so that's manageable.

I noticed that this lip gloss starts to fade after 3 or 4 hours without eating or drinking but if I eat/drink with this gloss on, it just comes off completely.

PROS:
  • Nice packaging
  • Pigmented 
CONS:
  • Very strong scent
  • Sticky and feels a bit thick
  • Doesn't last very long, comes off after eating/drinking

Wouldn't buy this lipgloss again or any other colour from this range because of the smell >_< And also because I wanna try some of Etude House's lip glosses. Overall, this lip gloss wasn't the best or the worst. I would say it's average. 

Thanks for reading! :D
