Today I am wearing a lip gloss named after a daily pleasure: Caffeine. This sparkly neutral gloss is a Mouthing Off sheer lip shine from Hard Candy. The glitter provides enhancement for the natural lip color while the gloss adds a slight tint and a pretty sheen.

Up close, Caffeine looks like sparkly gingerbread.

I can imagine Caffeine working well with a variety of skin tones. It brings enough color to my fair complexion to balance out bolder eye makeup. I could easily see Caffeine pairing beautifully with darker skin.
Mouthing Off sheer lip shine could be worn in a number of ways. I am showing a thorough application. A light coat of gloss could still be work appropriate. Caffeine could also be layered over a creme lipstick or lip liner to add sparkle. I love it over a nude lip.
I am pleased this gloss offers shine without stickiness. My lips feel moisturized without heaviness or residue. The texture fits my preferences. Caffeine currently resides in my go to make-up bag. The way Caffeine combines with my natural lip color makes it a great companion for this season's taupe nail polishes.
Mouthing Off has a faint chocolate flavor that makes me want to apply it even when the color doesn't need refreshing. It's a good kissing gloss. I wouldn't say the color will stay on long under such circumstances, but it won't get in the way.
I am definitely interested in experimenting with more Mouthing Off shades. Both Exotic and Drama Queen are tempting. If you like a sheer gloss with lots of shimmer, it's worth trying.
