Cocoa Lip Gloss
I purchased this when I went in the store looking for something else. I had a discount and figured I would give it a try. I actually love this gloss! I am mixed race and have dark lips, so the color doesn't really show up. It only leaves a lovely shimmer. I have not had any problem at all with the oil separating from the color. It smells good enough, though it isn't the best smelling gloss I own. I don't really notice any taste at all. The quality is pretty good. It's thick, without being goopy and sticky enough that it will stay on, but doesn't feel like glue. Overall, I am happy with my purchase and will probably buy more of the colors.

poor quality for this flavour of gloss
Unless I got a defective gloss, my cocoa lip gloss always separates such that when i go to put it on, i get the clear oily stuff oozing out and none of the brown glossy colour. I would not purchase this colour again. The Bodyshop attendant said I needed to shake it and "work/squeeze" the tube to mix it before applying. You shouldn't have to do that and you can't really shake a gloss in a squeeze tube.
I didn't notice this separation problem in the mint and the strawberry gloss. I guess the sparkle in the cocoa one is problem.
This gloss also promises taste. There is a cocoa taste but it tastes horrible. Needs to be a bit sweeter for it to be more popular. The taste complaint also apply to the strawberry one (mint isn't sweet so I was expecting the mint to be as it currently is).
