Kanebo is a Japanese brand that has several sub-brands that are very popular (Lavshuca, KATE among others). I picked this up because it was on sale on the Sasa site and it looked interesting. I paid $3.80 for 7 grams of product (or about 1/4 of an ounce). Not too bad and I actually prefer my tube glosses under 1/2 ounce or else I'll never finish them.
blue color in stock.
I have no idea what any of this means
The gloss has a rounded applicator with a fairly small opening. Not the best or worst packaging by any means though I do prefer a slanted tip. Now, you know how I mentioned that Kanebo wasn't kidding around with the "prism"? Well, wait till you see a swatch of this thing!
Here's the gloss blended out a bit on my hand. I also tested this out on my lips. No odor or taste. Sticky at first, but then becomes less-so and a rather nice consistency actually (and you can't feel the shimmer at all between you lips - a definite plus!). This was nearly impossible to remove on my hand. Regular dish soap didn't do anything, so I had to resort to using some olive oil which worked! I doubt I'll be wearing this alone, but it should be great over lipstains and/or lipstick. It's moisturizing enough and adds a bit of oomph too.
