Maybelline Fruity Jelly Lipgloss in Tempting Toffee

I think this line of lip glosses was revamped and re-released just lately—I seem to remember seeing these before but in different shades with different names. The Maybelline Fruity Jelly Lipgloss in Tempting Toffee is a shade that I liked best among the swatches I saw of the new, revamped line online, so I gladly got a tube of it when I saw it one day at a drugstore.

Maybelline Fruity Jelly Lipgloss in Tempting ToffeeWhat the company says about the product (from the packaging):

Shiny color with delicious flavor. Enriched with natural fruit extracts. The secret? A refreshing blend of fruit extracts give lips luscious color and delicious flavor. For smooth, nourished lips that glisten with a tantalizing shine.

I saw only 4 or 5 other colors available for the Fruity Jelly Lipglosses at Watson’s, Shopwise, and Maybelline counters at department stores.

This smells yummy. It smells like, yes, toffee! It’s a very sweet smell, and I like it. Well, generally, I like my lipglosses and lipsticks unscented, but if they must be scented, I’d like sweet foody scents for them please. Toffee scents are right down my alley. The scent of this is caramelly and rich, which I enjoy. I don’t find the strength of the scent too strong, but just right.

It looks like a dull, darkish brown shade in the tube, but applies a sheer, muted rose with hints of brown, and no shimmers. The color warms up the appearance of my sort of pale lips, and is a nice my-lips-but-better color. It’s pretty sheer but I can still see the difference in the color of my lips after applying Tempting Toffee all over them. I’m not exactly good at color descriptions, so, just see the photos below.

What I like about the Maybelline Fruity Jelly Lipgloss in Tempting Toffee:

  • The subtle warm color which suits my skin tone
  • The toffee scent, since I like sweet, warm scents
  • The nice, medium shine gloss it imparts on my lips
  • It doesn’t irritate my lips nor dry them out
  • It doesn’t feel sticky to me
  • No (weird) taste
  • It’s merely PhP 99
  • I can get it at pretty much any mall, drugstore, or supermarket

 What I don’t like about the Maybelline Fruity Jelly Lipgloss in Tempting Toffee:

  • A few times, when I squeeze out some product, the pigment is separated from the gloss/oil

Overall:

This is a nice lipgloss for PhP 99! I’m really pleased that it’s not drying and that it looks nice on my lips. Those who like sweet, caramelly scents would probably like this, and those who are looking for an affordable, sheer, natural-looking lipgloss should check out this particular shade. On the other hand, if you’re averse to scented lipglosses (especially sweetly-scented ones) and want a gloss that’s very pigmented, you probably shouldn’t get this. I would buy it again, though this one tube should last me some time.
