Hard Candy Glossaholic Rise and Shine Energizing Lip Gloss Review, Video and Swatches

If you made it through the title, congrats!  LOL Now on to the review with swatches and video!
Hard Candy Glossaholic Rise and Shine Energizing Lip Gloss (top coat) is essentially Nubar 2010 or Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure for the lips in a previously seen MAC Wonder Woman lipglass packaging; a nice flaky gloss to add dimension and fun to your lips with a HUGE doe foot!  It caught my eye immediately, but check out my thoughts on it!

According to Hard Candy: "SUPER HUGE MEGA WATT LIPS One dip covers your lips! Ginormous applicator with gloss cup deposits gloss to your whole mouth in one swipe! These super lustrous lip glosses are infused with prisms of color that make lips appear fuller and plumper. Out of this world hyper-reflective prisms of pearl make lips sparkle like crazy! Feeling tired or wired? Two Glossaholic sparkling clear top coats are infused with mood altering elixirs to help you Chill Out or Rise & Shine! – You can wear alone or as a top coat. "

  In this range there are a total of 8 glosses, two of these are top coat glosses, Coffee and Vanilla.  I got the Coffee energizing gloss.  I don't like roasted coffee beans so close to my nose all day, unless that's your thing and gets you going.  The flakes reflect orange, gold and green.  The other option,  Glossaholic Chill Out, Vanilla, has a scent to calm you.  The flakes reflect cooler colors... light blue, purple.  The other six glosses have color with a good amount of sparkle.  Scent aside, the gloss is gorgeous and the flakes aren't too obnoxious, just enough to give you ample sparkle.

Bottom line: I want more! Only $5 a pop!

Ok now I really want to try them but I agree that the coffee scent may be a bit off-putting. Great review
