Makeup by One Direction Kiss You LiquiLights Glow Gloss Review+Swatches

Makeup by One Direction's LiquiLights Glow Glosses "sparkle brilliantly during the day and illuminate under UV black light after dark. Enriched with natural oils and Vitamin E to keep your lips soft and hydrated all day and all night. Gloss can be worn alone for a pop of sparkle and color, or pair with One Direction Creme Lipstick for a bolder look." Makeup by One Direction's LiquiLights Glow Glosses are available in three shades, my review features Kiss You. The LiquiLights  Glow Glosses aren't for individual purchase right now, but one is included in each of One Direction's Collections ($28.50), or in a set of three ($16.50). Makeup by One Direction is cruelty free. This gloss was made in China. 

 Makeup by One Direction's LiquiLights Glow Glosses come in thick, rectangular, clear tubes with a black, brick patterned cap. The One Direction logo and product name are printed on the front of the tube. The shade name can be found on the bottom of the tube. This lip gloss has an elongated, flat, doefoot applicator. Packaging doesn't seem to be recyclable.
 This lip gloss has a smooth base, but it's glitter particles are course and can feel a little gritty if I rub my lips together. This gloss gives me decent wear, nearly three hours. This gloss feels slightly moisturizing, even after its worn away. Unfortunately, that hint of hydration isn't the only thing Kiss You leaves behind - the glitter definitely overstays it's welcome - especially when it decided to migrate around my face. Glitter all around the mouth is never a cool look. I can't speak on how well this gloss reacts to UV light, I don't have a black light to try it with, but judging by how bright the base color is, I'm sure it would gloss to some extent. Makeup by One Direction's LiquiLights Gloss Glosses have a plasticy vanilla scent with a flavor to match.
Kiss You is a neon orange with a translucent jelly finish and medium color payoff. Suspended within this bright gloss is plentiful gold glitter with a multicolored reflect. The glitter particles vary in size, from nearly non-existent to quite chunky, giving Kiss You a very sparkly finish. When exposed to a black light, the Kiss You LiquiLights Glow Gloss is meant to turn yellow. 
Makeup by One Direction's LiquiLights Glow Gloss is a fun product, but not one I'd go out of my way to get. This gloss is moisturizing, yet gritty. Color payoff is decent, I love a good orange gloss, but Kiss You is just a little too glittery for my liking. This UV reactive gloss would be fun for a rave, party, or concert, but not so great for day-to-day.
