I've always been a lipstick girl, through and through. Gloss just seemed like an after thought to lip color. I mean, if I'm going to put color on my lips, I want to see it. And the texture? Why would you want to put that goopy, sticky, super shiny goo on your lips?! I tried so many brands and formulas but still returned to my roots that lipstick was the best. But then I went to Ulta.... and tried these:
NYX Butter Glosses
I had heard so many good things about them and I'm such a sucker for bright colors that I gave in, and boy am I glad I did! They give just the right amount of color, not sticky, smells like candy, and goes on "like butta"! I loved all the colors and I think it was because I have a lipstick in about every bright color you can think of, but I restrained myself and went with some neutral pinks for those casual makeup days. Here is the color selection:
(there are also some limited edition colors that just came out this year- this is the permanent line)
I picked up Vanilla Creme Pie, which is a great natural pink that gives you that soft pink pout you find on the lips of babies- I think I loved it because it reminded me of my daughter's pink pout! I give these butter glosses two thumbs way up and a big puckered kiss for their amazingness!! These will definitely be making an appearance on my essentials page!
Have you ever tried a makeup product you never thought you would like and became a believer? I don't think I'll ever judge a product again based on past experiences- thats the beauty of makeup, always trying new things because you never know what you might find! And for those who found humor in my reference to Star Wars, thank you and you're welcome ;)
When I'm not spending way too much time getting ready or drooling over the newest beauty product, I'm a stay at home mom of a rambunctious 4 year old boy, a sweet baby girl we lovingly call "sissy", and a wife to my high school sweetheart.
