Rock the Gloss Challenge for Wednesday August 9th 2006:
I am wearing Duwop's venom gloss in lantana. It is a sheer hot pink.
The ingredients are cinnamon, wintergreen, ginger, jojoba, avocado, sunflower oil, beeswax and green tea.
It tingles but it is not uncomfortable or painful. It actually feels fresh. Like using a breath mint. The cinnamon and ginger are supposed to increase the circulation in your lips. I let my co-worker Gela test this with me this morning. She said that her lips feel alive. I think my lips feel awake. They feel ready to take on the world.
Plus my lips feel so hydrated. They are not sticky(such a wonderful plus!) and the gloss is staying in place. There is no mess on my coffee cup. The gloss feels like silk. It has such a great texture. They are scented with vanilla, cinnamon and other spices. It smells wonderful!
The glosses are named after poisonous plants. I think that is an adorable touch.
Some information from wikipedia about the Lantana plant:
Lantana is a genus of about 150 species of perennial flowering plants, native to tropical regions of the Americas and Africa. The species include both herbaceous plants and shrubs growing to 0.5-2 m tall.
Lantana's aromatic flower clusters are a mix of red and orange florets. Other colors exist as new varieties are being selected.
Lantana berries are poisonous. Lantana flowers and berries are attractive to insects and birds.
Thumbs up on this product! I am smitten!
Update: I am letting other co-workers try this. They are going nuts!! I have never seen any of the products I have brought to work cause this kind of frenzy.
What is your lippie today?
