It’s been a while, but I wanted to use my blog as a way to say a few brief thoughts on this lip gloss I received in my Varsity Vox Box from Influenster!!
Here it is!!! I received the shade Pleasantly Plump Pink. It’s quite a wide lip gloss, hence the name! I used it today and my first thought was, “wow this doe foot applicator is huge.” The upside is one dip on there is enough to coat my lips, this may be a bad thing for some of you ladies with smaller/thinner lips.
It’s not extremely sticky, but there is a bit of a tacky feeling. On my lips this product isn’t pink at all as it looks in the tube and as the name suggests. There’s a fine silver shimmer in it and when applied it looks like a mostly transparent gloss with a silver frosty finish. Nothing crazy, but it I was a fee shades darker it may look odd. I didn’t have a problem with the appearance of the gloss on me. It added something subtle to my lips without color, which worked for me today.
As far as the plumping aspect, it does have a tingling feeling that lasts maybe 10-15 mins. I don’t really need plumbing, so I’m not too fond of plumbing glosses. It felt like it was doing something, but nothing major. This product lasted less than a few hours on my lips, but for the price I don’t think that’s a major issue. Another thing to note is that it smells like Vaseline, again not a big deal, at least it’s not something horrible.
So overall I think it’s worth a try for the price, if you want to give it a try. The have other shades in the line as well.
I got my makeup done at a makeup event by Bobbi Brown a couple weeks ago and there were some nice products used on me, I thought I would share! My good Simona works for them and invited me!
This is their High Shimmer Lip Gloss in Pink Sequin, described as “A pink rose with gold pearl”.
It looks absolutely gorgeous on, I can’t believe I didn’t take a pic of it on! Also I’m so sad I couldn’t buy it, because I only had enough to splurge on 1 of their products, which I’ll discuss and review later 🙂
If you are in the market for something like this, definitely pick it up!
Hey guys, in one of my previous posts I showed you my Caboodle as storage for my makeup. I’ve been feeding into my shop-o-holic tendencies as you can see lol. So now I’m growing out of it. One of my obsessions is lip products, so I decided to get a separate storage for those as you can see below!
I’m in love with this thing! I purchased it from Amazon. I have my lipsticks up front, lip butters/lip glosses in the back towards the right, then my lip pencils on the left. There’s also a dropped portion of the holder in the front where I have my MAC lipsticks, which is cool. I didn’t take a picture of the metal clips/hangers they sent, but apparently this can be attached to some sort of wall storage system.
This works perfectly for me on my dresser, so I’m not to concerned about the hooks lol. Overall this hold all the various sizes of lipstick/lip gloss tubs I have, except one which its the brand No7. I found the lipstick at Target and it has large packaging in an odd shape, other than that everything is perfect! I have the lipsticks with the colors on the bottom upside down so I can easily find what I’m looking for, for the most part. Some others are easier to locate.
Hopefully you guys don’t mind back to back organizations posts, but these are so helpful for my storage.
