My love for lipstick is well known, but in the past, I have tended to avoid lip gloss at all cost. My thoughts on gloss are that it usually feels sticky and it goes away much too fast to make it worth buying over lipstick.
Well, Guerlain’s KissKiss Gloss has sort of changed that. There was a Guerlain makeup artist at Sephora the day I went, and he convinced me to give the Gloss a try after I proclaimed my adoration for their MaxiShine lipstick. I even allowed him to apply it to my lips, which took a lot for me because I can get a little germphobic.
To my great surprise, he wasn’t lying when he said that it would not feel sticky. I felt not one iota of stickiness and it imparted a beautiful, iridescent sheen to my previously applied Dior lipstick. It made me want to buy it, and like the woman with a makeup obsession I am, I did. I purchased #868, which is Opal Pearl and described as a shimmering opalescent pink.
Looking back, is $30 too pricey for a lip gloss? Probably. Even though it’s the best lip gloss I’ve ever had the pleasure of owning, it’s still a lip gloss and it does wear off faster than any lipstick.
But I tell myself that since it was off a gift card, I wasn’t really wasting my own money.
Uhhh, please tell me that rationalization isn’t a sign of addiction.
