tokidoki Gelato Lip Stain in Donutella

Here is another addition to my tokidoki makeup collection! I love collecting anything with Donutella on it and that was the main reason I got this lip stain. There are tons of photos after the cut because I wanted to show you all the cute designs on it!

I wasn't expecting much out of this lip stain since I mainly got it for the collection factor, but the wear is okay. The description for Donutella is listed as a "peach with melon flavor" but I'm not sure I agree with that. For me, it definitely looks and wears pink than peachy and there's a fruity scent that will linger for a bit after applying, but it doesn't seem like the smell is specifically melon. It does have a "sheer coral strawberry stain" though that will give a nice flush and shiny sheen to the lips. One aspect I would change is the tip to a slight slant or taper it for better application. It feels like a fat chapstick and the flat top makes me search for a mirror if I want to apply it straight from the tube so I won't be (unintentionally) sloppy. It's very inconvenient to have to worry about not 'coloring outside the lines.' Also, it originally came sealed with shrink-wrap that had the ingredients on it. It's annoying to have part of the wrapper still stuck on the cover because it didn't come off completely and I didn't get to photograph/don't know most of the ingredients. Expensively priced at 9$ individually, the lip stain is otherwise decent but probably not worth the buy.
