Tokidoki Prisma Lip Gloss Makes Me Proud To say "I Have Burgers On My Lips"

Many of you have already read my review on the Tokidoki Fantastico Lip Stain ($15), and you didn't really think that I would have left the collection with just one product right? Well, the second cutie up for test is the Prisma Lip Gloss ($15, 16 shades) in the color Burger, which is a bright orange shade.

More about the brand: Mischief abounds in the magical world of tokidoki, where one glance is never enough. Creator and Italian artist Simone Legno brings his cult-favorite designs and colorful interpretation of life to a new makeup and accessories line that exposes the criminally cute and irresistibly edgy sides of beauty. Presented exclusively at Sephora, this Japanese-inspired collection captures the true spirit of tokidoki: Every day brings another opportunity to dream.
I don't remember why I picked Burger out of all the shades, but I think the names of these lovely tubes really caught my attention. I mean, who doesn't want to say, "I'm wearing burger on my lips" (laughing out loud at my geekiness ).

The first thing that I saw when I grabbed the lipgloss is that it is big, definitely a giant among my small MAC ones. Size wise, these Tokidoki lipglosses are comparable to LipFusion Color Shine ($38, 14 shades), which I have reviewed one of its colors (Sun) before. These may not be the most convenient ones to carry around, but at least you know you are getting a bargain with the much bigger tubes.

As with other products in the new Tokidoki collection, Prisma Lip Gloss comes with unspeakable cuteness and are scented with sweet and fruity fragrances. I guess sometimes it is ok for burgers to taste like candies. The color pigmentation is quite sheer but is very nice because certain shades (Adios, Ninja Dog, SANDy) worry me a bit if the finish is too bright. What I especially love about this product is the fact that it doesn't settle into fine lines and really makes my lips look fuller. It gives you the kind of glossy and sexy lips that every girl adores.

One unique feature of the Prisma Lip Gloss that I want to mention is its applicator. Unlike the usual brush or sponge tips, these lipglosses come with paddle applicators. It did felt a bit awkward at first and took me few tries to get used to it, but the paddle tips actually work wonderfully and apply products evenly onto the lips. As you can see, my praise for this is nonstop. If you are interested in this new makeup line, definitely give the lip gloss a try.

The design is super cute and the wand is certainly unique. However, I still find these too sheer. Looks good on your lips though.

i can't stand this brand as its packaging as it's too childish for me. *_* but i like its shiny gloss though the colour seems to be lacking. i can see it's rather transparent on your lips. the wand is interesting though.

Very cute packaging. True, the paddle brush would require a little getting use to. But I like how the gloss looks on your lips.

I was interested in these glosses because the packaging is just so cute! I like the shine but it's so sheer :(

Ya, the pigmentation is really sheet and is not really buildable, so if you are looking for a more pigmentated color, then this is not for you.
