Glitter Colour Description
Baby Dragon
GCC description - spritely spring green glitter mix with a purple sparkle sheen and oodles of tiny emerald hex glitter and splashes of purple glitter too!
My Description - A Fine green glitter with slightly larger dark green and purple glitters

Lip Glosses Colour Description
GCC Description - Banished is an inky, nearly opaque deep indigo lip gloss. It is laced with a beautiful violet interference and a burst of gorgeous purple sparkles. Used sparsely, Banished is a fantastic layering gloss that adds a little vamp and oomph to your lighter toned colors, but can be easily built up to full opacity.Banished is a sweet treat to wear with its tasty buttercream frosting flavoring. Really pops and gets great wear time when paired with a lip primer.
My Description - A Deep blue/purple gloss with purple glitter, sweet flavout mod to full opacity.

GCC Description - A soft, yet vibrant cool-toned bubblegum pink lip gloss. It is a sassy explosion of a whole rainbow of sparkles in minty green, vibrant violet, a splash of aqua, all intermingled with holo sparkle too! Benevolent has a secret side to it. When in the right light it has an incredible spring green shift that almost appears to float on top of the pink. It goes on nearly opaque and tastes like a sweet mint julep
My Description - A Bright bubblegum Pink with holo-sparkle mod to full opaque with a miny taste.
 Overall i feel this is quite a cute collection! the colours are all fairly true to the character, I DO feel something is missing but cant put my finger on it... maybe if there was an additional shadow more neutral to tie it all together?
What was your favourite colour in this collection?

Final thoughts: Overall I enjoy this collection and while I am a self-confessed glitter addict I feel a green pigment would have helped tie the whole collection together. The glosses really require a smooth primed lip to glide on and not grab at flaky lips in a way remnding me of Matte lipsticks. A Sticky base like DG glitterglue or Fyrinnae PE is deff recommended.
Overall Rating:  A
