Babegloss is the first product I’ve had a chance to own out of Babeland’s own line of products. I have to admit, I think the idea of lip gloss which is also lube is pretty damned sneaky and naughty in all the right ways. I was hesitant to try the Pomegranate as I recently had a bad experience with something claiming to be that scent.
Lucky for me, Babeland seems to be pretty smart about their scents. This lipgloss smells great (at least at first). I don’t know if it’s true to the scent of the actual fruit but it’s fruity in general and very pleasant. Unfortunately, the lip gloss is not also flavoured and I think that is almost necessary for an awesome lipgloss. It doesn’t really have much of a flavour at all. Another downside is that the smell fades very quickly. Very. Within a matter of minutes, the smell is gone. I don’t really want to have to reapply that often.
Still, it works pretty nicely as a lipgloss. It comes in in a hefty glass tube so it’s a little heavier than some glosses. My scent is a glittery, translucent pink which leaves my lips shining and shimmery but doesn’t add a lot of colour. It rolls on with a ball applicator which has never become stuck and works really well. It’s much less stickier than other actual lipglosses I have used, perhaps due to its lube properties.
I’m a bit perplexed why Babeland didn’t make the label a bit more discreet, however. There is a clear sticker wrapped about the tube which describes it as “sensual lip lube”. The Babeland logo is on there a couple times along with the phrase “Sex toys for a passionate world” and the URL, too. This is definitely something to keep away from prying eyes which I think could prove to be difficult. I leave my chapstick sitting right on my keyboard and share lip products from time to time; basically, I don’t ever think about safeguarding those types of items. Of course, I could just peel off the label (actually, it’s been trying to come off since I opened the box), but I think it’s kinda pretty.
The lipgloss doesn’t absorb, really, which also makes it good for a lube. It feels rather slippery and waxy (which makes sense because beeswax is one of the 5 ingredients listed) and remains that way for a while – definitely longer than the scent. My lips glide easily over eachother. It’s not heavy duty lube so you shouldn’t be trying to shove your mouth in someone’s ass (why would you, anyway?) nor can you really apply a generous amount but it seems perfect for a little oral lovin’. If you require a lot of lube for giving head, then this may not be ideal but I usually don’t any so this would just make it that much sweeter (well, not literally).
Really, I love that it’s a naughty surprise in such a common item. No one has to know that spreading this gloss on my lips really means “I want to suck your cock” unless, of course, I tell them. It certainly could be used to send a naughty message to your lover from across the room, before slipping off to a dark corner to do the deed. It’s kind of mentally arousing to have that little secret.
Babegloss is definitely a secret we all should have, in my opinion. It’s a genius little idea and, from the reviews, it seems like I’m not the only one who thinks so. I will tell you that I’d love to have the Orange Dreamscicle scent as well but it’s currently out of stock. Must be because everyone likes it so much, huh?
