--What does the promo say?--
"Quench your thirst for glossy lips that burst with a sheer colour and juicy shine with Colour Juice Sheer Juicy Lip Gloss. Just squeeze and apply for fresh, ripe colour and a moisturising shiny finish. Wear alone or use as a topcoat over your favourite lipstick to really juice up your look."

At first glance this looks just like any other plastic squeezy lip gloss tube. And, let's face it, it probably is. But I actually rather like the rounded lid, it seems somehow unusual. And even though the tube is pretty plain, its transparency shows off this gloss in its full subtle shimmery glory.

As usual really, just squeeze a little and apply directly from the applicator to the lips.

A little sticky when first applied, but give it time and your lips do start to feel more moisturised. The particles of glitter aren't really big either, so you don't really feel them.

It looks better once it's had time to sink in and move around your lips, so that it doesn't look so slicked-on. It looks really natural but still with a bit of glamour, so it works well for day or night. Very sheer, too - there's no solid flash of colour here.

Smells really fruity and definitely lives up to its name in this respect. Shame it doesn't taste as nice. Fruity and sharp scent without being sickly.

Pretty good, but you do have to reapply after eating and drinking.

--Value for money--
Excellent - one tube lasts such a long time and there really is a shade for everyone too. They just need to make it less sticky and they'll have themselves a winner.
