2 Current Lip Favs

For those of you that know me, you know that I am a sucker for lip gloss. I am always trying to find the perfect one. What would the perfect gloss look or feel like you ask? For me, the characteristics would include: high shine, long lasting, great color, not drying to the lips (that means not making my lips chapped), low to no fragrance, and low to no taste (unless it is incredibly yummy). Again, this is a very personal thing.

Well, this weekend I tried the new Loreal Infallible gloss in Modern Mauve. I have to say I am pretty impressed with the gloss. And for only $9.99 at your local drug store (Duane Reade in NYC), it’s cheap enough for you to try one out.

The gloss goes on high shine and then dulls a bit, but overall great shine. And the unbelievable part to me is that the gloss stays on and not with the usual sticky or tacky feel. It just stays smooth. And I have tested it with coffee cups and silver ware. Loreal says it is the “6 hour, never fail lipgloss gloss.” So far, so good.

And I am a fan of the Modern Mauve color. For a caramel bella, it is the perfect pink – natural looking with a bit of color and pop.

I must admit that I haven’t worn it straight for 3-4 days to do a true “drying on lips test”. But it works well alone or with my favorite chapstick at the moment, Burt Bee’s Beeswax Lip Balm.

I could go on and on for days about Burt’s lip balm. It’s light, smooth and has the medicine feel and smell of Carmex without the sting and shine.

Well, that’s my gloss tip of the week. Try both.
