Among my many obsessions in skin care is one MAJOR obsession with Lip Gloss. I wish I had a count on how many pink, pinky nude, bright pink, dull pink and all sorts of pink Lip Glosses I have but I don’t have that kind of time. Yes I’m serious about that. It would take the better part of a Saturday to start a count.
The search has gone on for years now. It started when I worked at Clarins. The corporate office was half a block away from Bloomingdale’s and on our lunch, a friend and I would walk the beauty floor searching for the perfect pink gloss. And we purchased many from various brands.
Dior has a pink gloss in their Addict line called Pink Trench. But I found the consistency to be lacking. MAC has two. One called Underage and another called Nymphette that I love. Those two glosses are always at the top of my list of perfect pink’s and the benchmark for all other brands to compare.
I’ve never really been into Victoria’s Secret Makeup. I’m not sure I’ve been able to figure them out. Are they prestige? Are they more drug store? I’m not particularly sure. I tried a few products here and there and I actually adore a lip gloss called Wet. It’s a lip gloss that is really the color of your lips. Somewhat pink and somewhat beige and really perfectly neutral. After trying Wet, I decided to give another gloss a go. It was on clearance and only $3. So I tried it. It was called Halo.
And I LOVED IT. Like beyond loved it. It was Pink, sparkly and just perfect all over. But they discontinued it. I should have figured that I’d love it when it was on clearance. I purchased only 1 tube and I still dream about that damn color. I even search for it on eBay but I can’t fathom purchasing a used gloss. Ew.
So when they came out with a new Lip Shine line and I saw a color similar (less sparkly, slightly more pink) to Halo called Pinup, I jumped. It is really a beautiful baby pink that has shimmer in it. It’s consistency is sticky enough to make it lasting and the shimmer makes your lips just sparkle. I am in love with a new gloss. And I’m tempted to buy 10 so I don’t lose out and the deal’s that VS is offering right now make it oh so tempting.
Right now, you can purchase 2 Lip Shine’s for $15 or 4 for $20. That is a spectacular deal considering that 1 is $9.
I’m telling you, this gloss is a really great buy! It’s super sexy and truly the perfect pink!
