The beauty of a gloss is in it's immaculate, smooth finish - just as you wouldn't want dents in your nail polish or unevenness in your freshly waxed car, why would you mar the polished shine of a freshly-glossed lip??
Then one day, I came across the following:
During a cursory browse in Bath & Body Works, I came across a table full of irresistible lip goodies. I'm not usually a fan of flavoured lipgloss, but I just have to say: these are DELICIOUS.
Like, I-want-to-scoop-it-out with-a-spoon delicious. The mint obviously doesn't actually freshen your breath the way mouth wash does, but there's a pleasant coolness on my lips and breath when I breathe in after applying. They're also incredibly moisturizing which is a surprise since I'm convinced that all lip products contain a drying agent to induce continued purchasing. The colours aren't very strong, but not so weak that there's no difference between the three.
From the left:
- Plum Mint: It's a very light plum - a really nude, dark pink that I use when I feel like a spicier look.
- Bare Mint: My go-to. It's my lip colour but better because it's SHINY.
- Magenta Mint: My least favourite of the three, but I bought it because they were 3 for 2 and I figured I should expand my range a little. It's not an awful colour, it's a rather sheer bright pink, but it doesn't do a whole lot for my skin.
