Anyone watch the bachelor last night? Talk about a serious cry-fest for me…I even instagramed the effects this episode had on my emotional status. It’s a little over-the-top when you are doing the gasp for air ugly cry over a television show. And lets be honest- I won’t be shocked if Sean and Catherine break up in a few months anyways (although secretly I am just saying that so I can jinx the situation and I can be pleasantly surprised if/when they really do live happily ever after). While I wish this opening had anything to do with what I am blogging about today, it doesn’t. Just had to get it off my chest- and what better way to do that then on my own blog. Moving on–lets have a little lipgloss chit-chat.
I really don’t know many girls that don’t like a good lipgloss, and if I do, they are usually 65+ (maybe a generational thing). For some reason, high-shine, glossy lips that could rival a reflector on the side of a road makes me (and maybe you) feel a little bit more sexy, attractive and perhaps a little more kissable. At least the kissable part has been tried and true, my husband is a full on fan of some seriously over-glossed lips. But since I am not a fan of the gloss strings that stick from your top lip to your bottom, I tend to buy lipgloss that is non-sticky and mostly sheer in texture and color.
This week I was on a quest to find a few more glosses that I could incorporate into my life. I asked you guys on my Facebook page and my instagram page what lipglosses you prefer and like. Some we had in common- and some I had yet to try like Buxom, Essence, and Lorac. Below are 10 lipgloss choices that I really like for different reasons…Buxom is not on the list, but only because I didn’t have time to run out and purchase it. I guess that just means I will have to do a second glossy-gloss post. What is your favorite lipgloss?
