So many things to review but let me start with this lipgloss for a warm up! It was kindly sent to me by Mari Mari Indonesia, a local online retailer who carries various Jealousness products. Their prices are very reasonable and you don’t have to wait a couple of weeks to receive your goodies unlike if you order them from overseas. As for international readers, you can find Jealousness products at Sasa.com though the last time I checked I didn’t see this lipgloss being sold there.
Jealousness is actually a Taiwanese brand but it looks to me like they are heavily inspired by Japanese lines. The pretty pink packaging really gets me! I also love the fact that they list the ingredients in English (you can click on the second picture to read the ingredients listed). I wasn’t surprised when I saw Avocado Oil in it because this gloss sure feels moisturizing on the lips. It doesn’t leave my lips feeling dry or uncomfortable at all.
I thought the color Honey Barbie would lean towards brown or coppery red but it turns out to be a bright watermelon red. It applies sheer though, so it’s very suitable for everyday gloss. I like to pair it with minimal eye makeup because the color of the gloss itself already seems to brighten my face. 🙂
The shimmers aren’t gritty at all even though they look quite intimidating in the tube. I usually prefer cream finish glosses to shimmery ones but this gloss is an exception. I quite enjoy the texture even though it’s rather thick and sticky. Honestly, stickiness I can handle but not gritty texture.
The only thing I could complain about this product is the small doe foot applicator. It makes it harder for me to apply the lipgloss evenly.
Jealousness J Type American Style Lipgloss costs IDR 105k (approximately $11) for 7g of product. Not bad at all. You can go to Mari Mari Indonesia FB store to check out the rest available colors. 🙂
