Sugar Venom Carys Lip Gloss

Why yes it has - in the form of a package from Sugar Venom
A few months ago I was browsing Instagram when I came across Sugar Venom Cosmetics. They're an Australian company who produce vegan, cruelty free products. Naturally, I couldn't resist purchasing a few things. I got the Fairy Gloss in Carys ($24.95) and strawberry lip balm ($9.95). 

They arrived quickly in a very cool looking package along with a lollipop. I somehow managed to save the lollipop from the boys too, bonus!

If you're after the abbreviated version, I'm in love with Carys! It is a gorgeous, mlbb mauve/pink shade. The colour is opaque so I usually wear it alone, however it does look good over lipstick if that's your thing.

The texture is lovely, creamy and hydrating with no stickiness. There's no flavour but a soft orange scent that is undetectable after application. On my lips Carys feels more like a balm than a gloss. I really like the tube too, it's larger than the usual gloss tubes and so feels sturdy in my hand. I know that is a strange thing to say, but the packaging makes it feel nice to use. I get about three hours wear before I need to reapply, which is pretty decent for a gloss.

If you're in the market for a gorgeous vegan gloss, get your hands on a few of these. Sugar Venom also do lipstick palettes that contain five lipsticks for only $39.90 and eye shadows for $12.50.

As you can see in the photo below, on me Carys is a very natural pink. For someone with less pigmented lips it'd be a beautiful everyday mauve.

Ingredients: castor seed oil, hydrogenated polyisobutene, mica, jojoba seed oil, candelilla wx, cetyl alcohol, orange peel oil, tocopherol. 
May contain: titanium dioxide, iron oxides, pigment voilet, tin oxide, calcium aluminium borosilicate, silica.
