The Search Is Over! I found my HG lipgloss!

23 Oct

Many, many years ago, I happened to find THE PERFECT COLOR of lipgloss at the drugstore (It was Maybelline Shine Seduction in Spiced Potion). I’m not exaggerating. I recommended it to almost everyone I did makeup for – it flattered pretty much everyone. Unfortunately the product line  was discontinued and I have spent years and many $ searching for a replacement. I can’t even hazard a guess as to how many other lip glosses I have gone through since then (Check out the picture at the top of my blog and imagine a whole bunch more).  They were ether too brown, too pale, too pink, too coral. ..None of them were the perfect peachy pinky MLBB (My lips but better) color that this gloss had been.

Last week I was Goggling lipgloss swatches when I came across the Vapour Organic Beauty site. (This was after I had already ordered 2 Clinique chubby sticks from Sephora!) Of course I had to browse the lipglosses and there were several I thought that might be similar but you can never tell over a computer monitor. The great thing about the site is that they offer a sample kit on their site. For $15 you can try 5 different product samples. (And you also get a coupon for $10 off if you buy a full size product within the next 60 days). I ended up ordering 2 glosses and 3 lipsticks.  When the samples arrived yesterday I tried one of the glosses  immediately and squealed with delight because I found my MLBB shade!

Elixir Plumping Lip Gloss

About the gloss itself – it smells like makeup rather than scented and flavored like other glosses. That might bother some people but it didn’t bother me.  The gloss has a nice subtle shimmer to it and the color is sheer but still quite visible. The texture is smooth and feels more like an oil (not the best descriptor but can’t think of something better) rather than a sticky gloss.  It has plumping in the name but to be honest I didn’t notice a plumping effect. That being said I already have quite full lips to begin with and plumping had never been a factor in my purchase.
