Last time I purchased my favorite daytime moisturizer, mark For Goodness Face Antioxidant Skin Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30, I received a free gift with purchase. It was a mark Juice Gems flavored high shine gloss.
Mango Tango sounded good and it looked like the color would be a peachy-mango shade, so quite flattering for spring.
The Website Claims:

Does it live up to its claims?
No. This is probably the worst lipgloss that I’ve tried in a long time. I have the shade Juicy Mango Tango. It looks like clear gloss on my lips. There’s no tint to it, so my pale lips show through. I think it looks horrible on me.
Would I purchase?
No. I’m glad this was a free gift with purchase because otherwise I would feel like I’d wasted my money. This was a seriously awful gloss. I’d expected a lot more from mark, but this time I was really let down. I wouldn’t purchase this or recommend this shade to anyone.
Product was a free gift with purchase. All opinions are my own.
