I always love it when people recommend stuff because I agonize (Agonize!) over purchasing face lotion, hair dye, compacts, lip gloss, etc. You know, the important stuff. I think it's because I've had so many experiences where I've bought something I thought I'd love and it totally sucked. You know how that goes. You also know that you can't take used makeup back anymore. Why did that stop? Why??!?!?!?!
Anyway, I thought about it, but any time I think about posting something that isn't a garment I've made or a tutorial on how to make something, I get serious performance anxiety. I always think, "Oh god, will they think I'm trying to tell them that I'm totally awesome and they should listen to me? And they should buy this! Trust me I know because I'm awesome! Like I'm Oprah or something?" And then I calmed down and figured that if I was really in the business of writing stuff that was awesome for awesome's sake I'd probably write about other stuff besides myself, you know? And after watching this fascinating, if not mildly horrifying, video here, I figure maybe some of you gals were like me, pouring over review after review before buying something as insignificant (yet mildly costly - $8 is $8, right?) as lip gloss, and a little friendly recommendation may not be a bad thing. After all, I bought this lipstick because The Pioneer Woman talked about it, and it's awesome! She was right!
Ahem, sooooooooo, I just wanted to point you to some wonderful lip gloss that I bought. It's Neutrogena MoistureShine Lip Soother. I love it because it has no glitter. I'm 32. I don't need glitter on my lips anymore Maybelline and Loreal and Almay and everyone else because seriously this is the only lip gloss I found anywhere by any brand without glitter in it gah!
I also love it because it's nice and thick, like Mac's clear Lip Glass. It's got a just a little kick of sheer color, so it's perfect for summertime when you have that more invisible makeup look going on. And the kicker is that it's got a cooling sensation that hits your lips and refreshes you ever so slightly. Hence the title of this post.
I got #20 (Glisten) and #40 (Gleam). My local drug store had a buy one, get one 50% off so I scored both for $12. I love #20 because it's a slight orangey hue which in very big right now, but it's not orange orange. It's just a hint of tint. Truth be told, my favorite color gloss is a light blue because it gives my lips a mauve color, but there is no blue gloss without glitter (I'm lookin at you Lip Smackers!).
So anyway, if you're in the mood for a new lip gloss, give that a shot. It's awesome!
