Day 40: Not just Another Mouth in the Lipstick Vogue
I am having a hard time ending this project. There were so many lippies we never got around to discussing.
I have a great fondness for sheer or snow-like shimmery glosses. I swoon over sparkle and high sheen.
Philosophy is a brand that you go to for skin or bath care. One of the line's hidden gems are their lip glosses. They have a hint of color, high shine, non-tacky texture, and a respectable dose of shimmer. Victoria Secret's Beauty Rush lip gloss in Spring Fling is a clear gloss with blue shimmer. It tastes like bubblegum and is hydrating.
Rimmel's After Dark lip gloss is filled with gadgetry. It has a light built in along with a handy mirror. This lippie has high shine but weak shimmer benefits. It is soothing and feels like silk on the lips. Styli-Style Plastique Brilliant lip gloss has chunks of multi-colored glitter. It feels gritty and uncomfortable yet it looks like a shimmery disco ball on the lips.
Chanel Glossimers in Crystal Blue is a clear shade with ultra-fine sky blue shimmer. Glitter is a snowy shimmer. It really looks like shimmery snow on a sunny day. Ovation is an opalescent with pink shimmer.
MAC's Snowscene is the very best of the shimmery white genre. It is not a sheer but rather a true snow shade. The shimmer power is first rate. It transforms any color of lipstick from pink to nude.
Let us know if you have a favorite sheer lip gloss or if you are a fan of the shimmery whites in the comments.
