So here’s the question that you’re all dying to know the answer to (or at least, you should be curious) — why not “long-wearing” gloss? You’d think that if you’re going to spend a small fortune on something, it should be long-wearing.
The answer? Not if you’re trying to lose weight.Hold it. Before you have me institutionalized (I LOVE YOU SARAH CONNOR) let’s hear some logic.
Too heavy -> wants to lose weight -> applies expensive gloss -> refrains from snacking because she doesn’t want to eat off her gorgeous lippie.
I know. The logic is flawless, right?
- Something limited-edition. If you know you can’t re-buy, you won’t want to waste a single minute of wear! Givenchy’s gorgeous new Gloss Poetique should fit the bill quite well.
- Something high-pigment… if biting into that doughnut will smudge your gloss and make you look like a psychopath or Pam Anderson, you may pause and rethink your decision. Stila’s soon-to-be-released Lip Enamels would be perfect for this! Until then, Dior’s Crème de Gloss has your back.
- Something golden. No, serously. YSL’s Golden Gloss may come in quite a number of shades, but wearing 24-karat gold flecks of shimmer? Perfect.
Anyone have a splurge-worthy gloss they want to tell us about? That’s what the comments are for, ladies!
