Pink lip gloss is for girls

I’m not sure what caused the shift in shade love but for the past week I’ve been obsessing with corals again. Even stranger…corals in gloss. Yes I! I who said that gloss was for single girls.

It’s like that pregnant woman who used to loathe the smell of a Big Mac but since the bundle of joy came along that burger is all she can think about. (Can you tell I’m hungry?) I can assure you, I’m not expecting but I am loving a good lip gloss lately…

It actually all started with the arrival of Marc Jacob’s Lust for Lacquer lip glosses. I did have a soft spot for Lancome’s Gloss in Love beforehand but it was the tingling, peppermint of Marc’s collection that hooked me.

Back in the rotation, Lancome’s Gloss in Love in Peach Show it a light and wonderful gloss that doesn’t feel like tar on the lips. Yes, that’s right, you can still smooch with that balmy texture.

Another formula to fall in love with is Shu Uemura’s Gloss Unlimited. This too feels oh so silky on the lips and there’s a myriad of colours to choose from. This would be my least favourite shade because it’s so cool in tone (totally right for blondes, though!)

    Super beautiful! I love them all! You look as fierce in pink and coral gloss as you do in bold red lipstick! Also, yay for being seasonally inappropriate! It’s one of my favorite things. There’s something fun and refreshing about luminous, bronzed skin and pink gloss in the dead of winter. It’s the makeup version of watching Home Alone in July! 😉

      Hahahaha BEST analogy ever. Okay so it’s funny because I’ve been all about being seasonally inappropriate with beauty lately. Wearing fresher scents and light, dewy foundation. I;m coming up with a beauty look post inspired by Christina Aguilera that I fell in love with Bright coral lips with false lashes. Can;t wait to show you all!
