Review C.O.Bigelow Mentha Lip Cordial in Hot Buttered Rum

Review overload? When I asked what people wanted they said more reviews. I get the biggest kick out of doing them. There are things I tried and didn't like but didn't want to waste the energy posting about the bad. right? right!

C.O Bigelow Lip Cordial in Hot Buttered Rum. I got mine from Bath and Body Works. They retail for $7.50 each but they are usually doing a 2 for deal!

Ok so let me lay a disclaimer that this lipgloss is not for everyone. It has a VERY unique taste and smell.
This clear gloss has a light silvery shimmer. .

It has a distinct hot buttered rum mixed with mint taste and smell. I personally LOVE it. I can't get enough of it. I reapply every 5 minutes. I bet I annoyed the people sitting across from me on the T the other day. The website says "It's a zero-calorie breath freshener" It really is! The hot buttered rum disappears pretty quickly and you are left with a nice fresh minty taste and smell. I like to apply it after lunch or snacks and before staff meetings. Mostly because I don't really like to eat mints. Its a bit sticky but not in an obnoxious way. (I actually prefer a bit of stick in my gloss. Lets me know it is still there)

Before


Don't expect it to add color to your lips but it does add a lot of great shine without being over the top.

After

The gloss has my favorite kind of applicator, an angled squeeze tube. Easy to wipe off it it gets sticky.

The Mentha lip glosses come in a ton of colors and flavors. I plan to go back and get the Ginger Mentha and Hot Chocolate Mentha!

Right now they have a buy two get one free deal going on. Might I suggest also getting one of their Liplicious line while you are there. I have the Pancakes one. Dude.it.is.awesome. Well if you like pancake scented gloss.
Which I do.

Good review! I'd even want to hear about the bad in order to possibly avoid them!
