Manic Panic recently invited me to try out some of their products. If you are not familiar with the brand, Manic Panic are a cruelty-free company (and most of their products are vegan) well known for their range of vibrant hair colours. They also have a range of cosmetics, so as I am not brave enough to dye my hair a vivid shade of the rainbow, I decided to opt for something more me - lipgloss!
Manic Panic Cross Glosses come in quirky little tubes with a cross on the applicator. I love the design and I think it's great to have something different to all my other products in my makeup bag.
The Cross Glosses are priced at £9.59 each and come in a range of bold colours, including green, lilac and black! The shades I received were Hot as Hell (bright pink), Black Rose(dark red) and Poison Apple (bright red).

I really like the Cross Glosses, especially the pink one! They are all really pigmented, but the colour is buildable, so you can just put on a light slick for a hint of colour, or apply more to get a brighter effect.
They aren't too sticky which is a must-have when looking for a great lip gloss. I have found the colours to be long-lasting as well, which is great as sometimes lipglosses can wear off really quickly. I have also layered them over lipstick for an extra colour boost, which works really well. If you are looking for fun, bright lipglosses then the Manic Panic Cross Glosses are definitely what you need!
