Melliesh Lip Gloss 04 Juicy Orange

Melliesh Lip Gloss Product Description
This lip gloss by model Yui Kanno is a concealer + gloss in one.

Price, Shipping, Thoughts
 I'm totally not a gloss fan but I really, really, really like this~!! It cost me about $18 at Marukai Market. It's a very sheer orange gloss that looks great on naked lips, on top of colored lipsticks, or built up for a vivid orange color. The formula is not sticky, but feels like a thin sealing wax that keeps in all the moisture in your lips :). I was convinced to purchase this after seeing it in a makeup tutorial in nuts magazine (my favesie)! Orange seems to be the boom color of S/S 2011 ^^.
I've already had an experience with a concealer + gloss 2-in-1 formula before (Heavy Rotation Nudy Beige gloss) & know that these really aren't concealers at all but actually just highly pigmented & buildable lip glosses. Those with lots of lines in their lips like me will want to use a nude base (lipstick concealer) to allow this gloss to distribute evenly on the lips, especially if using it for multiple coats of bold color.

Actual Picture
Not only is the bottle small, but the plastic used is very cheap & plain. I don't like that at all :/ However, the wand head feels nice on my lips & distributes product evenly.

The gloss actually looks darker than my pictures. It's the same hue yet appears deeper in person. Excuse my bug-eyed face; it gets like that after 8+ hours of game testing at work ^^;;!!

If you are looking for a neutral gloss that can be built up into a vivid color, get this! Not only does it look good, but it feels so moisturizing & good for your lips.
