Liplicious is a line of lip glosses made by Bath and Body Works. They come in a convenient pocket-sized squeeze tube, as well as in a variety of colors and lip-smacking flavors. Their price is average, but you can normally find them on sale. Overall they seem to be a hit with all ages from teenagers to women over 40. So during a recent shopping trip to the mall we decided to buy one of the Liplicious Lip Glosses in Whipped Vanilla, just to see if it can live up to the hype. So how did it do? Let’s find out!

Guide Review of Liplicious Lip Gloss
What’s better than going to the mall and coming home with an unexpected purchase of new lip gloss? As you know lip gloss alone is always a plus, so imagine how happy I was to find Bath and Body Works mid-sale on everything including their Liplicious Lip Gloss. Since I had never tried their gloss I just had to give it a shot, and luckily it was on sale for buy two and get one free so I was also able to grab some lip balm and a tin of CO Bigelow Rosebud salve. The problem was trying to decide what color and flavor to try. They offer some really fun shades, and they also offer super shiny or shimmery to just the right amount of shine or shimmer. Oh, and the flavors alone are enough to make you spend half a paycheck! But enough about the color and flavor selection; let’s find out how the lip gloss actually did!
So I tested the lip gloss multiple times on various days in order to get a good feel for the wearability, and to make sure there were no allergic reactions to the ingredients. First of all there were no reactions, so that’s a plus. Second, the formula was so tasty and smelled of vanilla so much I had to refrain from eating it off of my lips. Overall the wearability was nice because the color was perfect by itself, it lasted for a few hours, and the texture was really creamy instead of tacky. I also tried the lip gloss with a lip stain underneath, over a favorite lipstick, and over a lip liner. All three gave me a different look, which was really great, and all three looked and felt great.
The color from Whipped Vanilla was a nice medium-coverage color of a warm dusty rose shade. It was almost like wearing a lipstick, but with the benefit of a lip gloss. The shimmer level was nice as well because it wasn’t too much. The packaging is nice also since it’s the typical size of your average lip gloss tube. There were a couple of negatives, but none that couldn’t get looked over quickly because the positives were so great. First, the Whipped Vanilla shade contained Carmine which is crushed beetles. It sounds pretty creepy, but I tried not to think about it since it’s hard to find a good lip gloss that also tastes this good. Second, it didn’t contain an SPF so your lips are at risk for sun damage. Again, this wasn’t a huge concern since you can very easily apply an SPF lip balm under the lip gloss. So overall I would say that the Liplicious Lip Gloss is a definite must-have for every age, from tween to retired.
The Bottom Line for Liplicious Lip Gloss
In the vast world of lip glosses I have not found one that can stand up to the Liplicious look, feel, taste, and price. And knowing that it comes from Ohio-based Bath and Body Works makes it an even bigger winner.
