I am a gloss lover, I never keep a matte lipstick, matte for very long, I am gloss obsessed. No matter how much I try to leave my lipstick alone, the drying out and peeling dread comes over me and I reach for a gloss! This gloss is perfect, it's not a plumper or pucker or anything too uncomfortable and fancy, it's just a plain everyday gloss. Yes, I know glosses can be heavy and sticky and irritating. But this is light and not at all sticky, which is great for blustery days and the occasional smooch.
It's totally clear but with quite a lot of shimmer, which is right up my street. It means it can be put over lipsticks without changing the colour, but just making it sparkle and shine. But it's one of those lip glosses that can stand it's ground and looks great on its own without just being secondary to a bold lip. For those natural (as natural as we dare to be) days, nothing looks nicer, fresher and more inviting than a clear glossed lip.
I can't quite put my finger on what the smell reminds me of, but it definitely takes me back to the days of secretly putting on my lipgloss in the school toilets. It smells very bubbly gummy and very fruity. If anyone can tell me what old school lip gloss this smells like I am dying to know?
This is definitely a handbag essential and one that I will be keeping with me!
