The wide doe-foot wand made application quick, neat and easy. When I say wide, I mean huge! You can’t really get a sense of the scale from these pix but the actual applicator is 7/8 inches long and 3/8 inches wide.
This is how a thin layer looks – I wish I had built up the color a little more here, because it does look more red with thicker application.
These glosses are smooth and not too sticky, and I got about 3 hours of wear time (no eating, drinking or kissing). But I did notice that those flakies stick around long after the gloss has worn away. And they will migrate to anything you come in contact with, so use caution!
The other thing I love about Glossaholics glosses are that they look and smell delicious. Exactly like vanilla frosting, without being too cloying or artificial.
Included in this collection are two holographic/prismatic clear glosses that are supposed to help you “chill out” or “rise and shine” with a special blend of aromatherapy agents. Although I’m sure they smell great, I wonder if they have true therapeutic benefits?
I was a stranger to Hard Candy cosmetics until I got introduced to their Beetle duochrome nail polish and these glosses. Can’t wait to see what else they have to offer.

Jewelry, art, music… and makeup! For me, these are all natural ways of expressing myself. The face is a canvas waiting to be enhanced, just like a blank sheet of sterling silver or clay. Here you’ll find an archive of my makeup looks and tutorials. For about 2 years I did my best to never repeat the same makeup (!!), so as you can imagine there are quite a few! I’m happy to answer any questions about how I created a look, product recommendations, etc.
From time to time I have makeup sales, which will also be posted here.
