Today’s review is on another Japanese cosmetic product, Majolica Majorca’s Plump Neo Gloss in RS456! This lipgloss does not get talked about much. In fact, I’ve only heard of Majolica Majorca for their fantastic mascaras! While researching the facts about this lipgloss, I discovered that it won the 2012 Yahoo! Beauty Best Cosmetics Award in the lipstick and lipgloss department! That’s really something major!
The tube itself is really small so it’s great to carry around in your purse on-the-go! =) There is nothing to complain about in terms of its packaging because it’s just a regular squeeze tube!

The gloss itself feels really moisturising and lightweight! As you can see, over bare lips it’s quite sheer but it adds so much gloss and shininess. It applies really easily and just glides over your lips and makes them look really juicy and pouty. This particular shade looks really natural, it sort of just naturally enhances the lip colour and has a slight plumping effect. In my opinion, it’s a little bit on the sticky side because when you smack your lips together, there is some very slight tackiness and your hair can get stuck into it but it’s not messy. However, stickier lip glosses mean longer lasting power so it is something I don’t mind dealing with! =) I find that it has decent wear time, but only without eating! It doesn’t really come off unless I eat something and I need to wipe my lips.
Overall, it is an alright lipgloss! I’m generally not a lipgloss girl in general so I probably will not repurchase but I find that this is nice if I want to add some glossiness to my lips! It makes them look naturally plump and shiny without being extremely sticky. However, since it is a little difficult to find and purchase, I wouldn’t recommend you go through all the trouble to try and find it! >< But if you’re lucky enough to visit or live in Japan, then I say why not? It’s only about 480 yen, which is around $5! =)
