It’s been a while since I’ve posted about lipstick. It’s been winter in the northeast. My skin has been SO DRY that even with excessive moisturizing and doubling my water intake, I haven’t been able to wear lipstick very often.
So I’ve dug into my lip gloss reserves. I don’t like lip gloss. It’s sticky, shiny, and smears onto everything. This one is okay, though. I’ve been getting some compliments on it.
It doesn’t go on quite as purple as I want it to, but it’s pretty solid and fades evenly. It does feather. I’ve been able to keep it in check with a clear lip liner. The two pictures below show this gloss right after application (left) and about 8 hours later (right).
I would tell you that you could get this at Wal Mart for $5, except it’s out of stock. It apparently had a short run in 2015 and has been gone for..a while.
I have had this lip gloss for three years. It is still mostly full. I know people that have created entire humans & have taught them to walk in the time it has taken me to start wearing this lip gloss.
That’s gross. How old does a lip gloss need to be before it can kill you? I’m sure there’s a little icon somewhere on the tube telling me to throw it out after six months.
I’m not going to. It doesn’t go near my eyes, so I think the risk for damage is pretty small.
What do you have floating around that should really go in the trash by now?
