Hello, boys and girls!
A couple of months ago, I was contacted by Manic Panic and they had asked me if I was interested in trying out their lip glosses. I have seen them on other blogs and YouTube videos in the past and I've always been interested in them, so I went ahead and said, "sure thing"!
When I think of Manic Panic, I think of their amazing hair color collection. I was a huge fan of their hair dyes when I was in high school. I had Hayley Williams red hair, and it was BAD ASS. So when I found out that they actually offer cosmetics, I did a little happy dance. They sent me two High Voltage Lip Glosses to play around with. Now, these aren't just any old lip glosses. They are lighted lip glosses! The LED light is inside the cap, and is activated when twisted open. It is nice and bright, and helps you see exactly what you're doing. Not only that, but they have a handy-dandy mirror on the side of the tube. Absolutely perfect and ideal makeup item to throw in your purse!

The packaging of these are super nice; not too small and not too bulky. They are sturdy and well made. I love the sleekness of them, and of course the star of the show is definitely the built-in LED light!
The applicators are the classic, doe-foot variety, which are my favorites when it comes to lip glosses. You get a nice and even coverage.

Power of Love: Light-medium frosty pink and cupcake flavor/scented.
I'm personally not a huge fan of frosty lip colors, but this is pretty nonetheless! The color is a light/medium shade of warm pink that will flatter lots of different skin tones. Great for highlighting your lips!
Naked: Medium mauve with gold shimmer and cupcake flavor/scented.
This is THE perfect nude lip gloss for my medium-fair skin! It doesn't make me look like a zombie, and it keeps my lips hydrated. The mauve color is gorgeous, and there is a subtle golden shimmer that gives it an extra pop. Photos do not do it justice!

Overall, I really enjoy these glosses. Right off the bat, I am instantly drawn to the fact that they are vegan and cruelty-free. I am definitely more of a lipstick kind of girl, but I have been reaching for Naked a lot lately when I feel like rocking a nude lip. It's simply beautiful and really flattering on me. The smell is divine...they smell like vanilla cupcakes! They also last on the lips quite a while as well, and are not sticky whatsoever. There is nothing worse than sticky lip gloss! They're not greasy, either. They feel extremely light-weight and comfortable on the lips. Manic Panic's High Voltage Lip Glosses are a win in my book! They retail at $12.00 USD, and can be purchased HERE. Manic Panic also carries a variety of other cosmetics and beauty products!
I hope this review was helpful to you! If you're looking for a fabulous lip gloss with an edge, then you'll love these.
Hope you all are doing great! Besides patiently waiting for the fall season (I hate summer), I have been busy with a new and exciting project that will be coming up in the near future. I CANNOT wait to share it with you all!
Also, to my fellow Amurricans, have a safe and happy Labor Day!
See you all next week...
