I absolutely love the long-lasting shine this top coat lip gloss gives. It makes my lips feel very smooth and silky. The price was great too, under $6. That being said, I will never purchase this Maybelline Shine Shot gloss again thanks to the absolute wreck it made of my other products.
The first time I noticed the mess, I thought maybe I hadn't put the top on all the way. The gloss got all over my mini-makeup bag, my lipstick, and my powder box. Wiping it off became an issue because it's so sticky that you CAN'T just wipe, even with makeup wipes. I had to use Dawn liquid soap and warm water- and scrub. It took me a good 20 minutes to clean everything, but again, I blamed myself. So, I put more on, and made sure I tightened that top.
Then it happened again this morning- only this time it got EVERYTHING in my bag. My favorite all-over brush is ruined, my primer had to be completely scrubbed, and the makeup bag inside had to be soaked in Dawn and hot water. I Just laying the gloss on its side right now, it's leaking out. No reason for it, the top is secure.
So while this gloss is one of the best I've come across in years, the mess and money it will cost me to replace products it has ruined is completely not worth it. Such a shame too.
