Scarlet lights, crimson glitter, whimsical dreams, and days of dewy- eyed wonder. Let your magical dreams come alive with this mystical lipgloss. Do you still recall your fantasies once upon a carousel ride?
Alright, that's too poetic for a lipgloss. I just want to say that I love Carousel rides, even up to now. And that's the reason why I bought this. :)
When it comes to cute, fancy, and utterly feminine makeups, I go for Lime Crime. FYI, product packaging greatly affects my purchasing decisions. :)

The tube is thin, long, lightweight, and sturdy. The twirly body of the tube gives it a playful appeal.
I also love the fact that it comes with a precision nylon brush that perfectly fits the contour of your lips. I'm starting to dislike doe foot applicators in lip glosses because I've come to realize that they just absorb the product, not to mention they're harder to clean than lip brushes. I just swipe Carousel Lipgloss' lip brush on a tissue sheet before storage.
Candy Apple is described as a "Deep Ruby Red shade with Crimson Glitter". Lime Crime's Carousel Lipglosses are infused with a generous amount of glitter for a stunning shine.
Here's Candy Apple in artificial lighting. Fear not the glitters, because they don't look crazy or weird on lips at all. The good thing about these lipglosses is, the glitters' colors are the same as the lipglosses. According to Lime Crime, Carousel Lipgloss' real colors come alive in indoor lighting. Unfortunately, it didn't come off as a deep red shade on me as advertised on Lime Crime's promotional photo. On fair- skinned girls, you have higher chances of sporting Candy Apple's lovely deep ruby red shade, while on medium, tan, and dark- skinned ladies, the shade will come off as a warm, cherry red color. Nevertheless, it's still pretty.
Its consistency is semi- sticky at first, then it dries off to a lightweight, non- sticky finish. For a lipgloss, it is very pigmented. Coverage is semi- opaque, and I love the fact that it yields a natural- looking shine.

It surprisingly lasts longer than most lip glosses I have tried, and the color persists even if the lipgloss has completely come off. Good buy indeed!
Of course, I'd love to buy again. I have my eyes fixed on Cherry on Top and Gold Ticket. But recently, I have changed my mind because I am drooling over their Palette D' Antoinette! :p
