I'm a lipgloss addict

I admit it. The first step to recovery is admitting it right? Well here's my first step. Yes I am a complete makeup addict, but i specialize in lip products, particularly lipglosses. My condition is so bad I had to ban myself from getting any more lip products to focus on the other parts of my collections that's truly lacking. Don't believe me? Let me let the pictures speak for themselves.
This is where i store them all.


STOP JUDGING ME!!! It's not that bad. Really.
I was taught to find the good in everything so I'm going to use my *cough* little addiction to help others. I will do a lipgloss review every Monday. If time permits or it gets requested more i'll add do it an additional day. But for now it's Lipgloss Monday's. Here's the first entry.

Product Name: Too faced Mirror Mirror Lipgloss in "Envy Me"

Product: 4 Kisses out of 5
Packaging: 4 Kisses out of 5
Longevity: 4 Kisses out of 5
Overall: 4 Kisses out of 5
Repurchase?: Definitely!

Pros: You don't need a lot to get the stain on your lips, just a little gives you that freshly kissed stain. It's not too sticky, well not by my standards and it lasts for a long time. Through out an 8 hour day i probably had to reapply it maximum twice. It also handles food well. The pigmentation is good, it doesn't give you the kind of coverage a lipstick would, it just gives you a slight stain which is what a gloss is suppose to do anyway.

Cons: I don't like the way it smells, but you can only smell it while it's in the tube, after you apply it you can't smell it anymore; well I can't anyway.

Overall: I love this lipgloss! It's fast becoming one of my favorites. I'm definitely going to get another color once my self imposed ban is lifted.

Couldn't think of a better way....

To start this blog so i decided to post a FOTD. I've been on a "neutral with a kick", term i borrowed from a friend, look lately. And the reason honestly is, i don't have enough time to do the makeup i want to do since i'm always running out of the house late. So instead i focus on flawless, glowy skin, nude eyes with a pop of color and glossy lips.
