I have become a victim to novelty packaging and consumerism, again. But I’ve never owned any makeup in the shape of a bunny. So I had to have this, you know..? Eight sweet little rabbit lip bars in eight cute and colourful shades all lined up in a row is a recipe for disaster, as far as my bank balance is concerned. I did the sensible thing and opted for just one shade, in case the product turned out to be a disappointment. Now I’m the proud owner of No.4, Juicy Cherry, and I’m going to tell you why you need this gloss bar too.

Though this product is marketed as a gloss, the real thing is more like a waxy lip tint. There’s a little shine when it is first applied but this soon wears away, leaving only the colour. The colour is actually very impressive, offering a bright shade but nothing ridiculous that wouldn’t be suitable for everyday-wear. If you’re not a big makeup user, this product is probably just what you want since it allows you to wear it with a, “I’m not wearing any makeup,” sort of façade.  If you were looking to dress it up some more, a coat of clear/pale lip-gloss over the top would add a suitable level of glamour.

This gloss doesn’t sit on top of the lips and stay sticky and easily smudged. It seems to be ‘absorbed’ pretty quickly, so much so that it’s easy to forget that you’re wearing it. Thankfully, the colour has staying power; it doesn’t wear off after half an hour, as a lot of glosses do, suggesting that it might be better quality than many similar products. It isn’t as badly behaved as a lipstick so you can apply it quickly, on the go, without needing to even consult a mirror.

I would recommend this product to anyone and everyone. In fact, I go further than recommending; I insist you buy yourself a Petite Bunny Gloss Bar. Whether you choose to use it as a basic, staple lip product or more of a ‘special occasions’ item, I promise you won’t be disappointed with the results! I’m not usually this easily impressed with products (usually more so by the packaging) but I will definitely buy this again in future.

Best bit: the bunny ears/face.

Worst bit: I can’t afford every shade (yet).
