If there were statistics on the most lost piece of make-up in a girl’s bag I would guarantee it would be lipgloss. No matter how many I put in my bag I always seem to lose them – I swear there’s an evil fairy collecting them up and building a nest. Because of the pure turnover of lipglosses in my possession (I won’t bore you with a graph) I resent paying much for them, but cheapo prices normally mean cheapo quality.
The lovely ladies at E.l.f (eyes lips face) recently sent me a huge box rammed with lipglosses from their collection – you could almost hear my heart rate increasing with excitement at the sight of that many lustrous colours. As I’m such a generous lady (!!) I handed these out to all my friends and colleagues like sweeties to children – seriously, I may as well been handing out money for the reaction I got – for them all to test. The results were a resounding success.
We’ve all been trying Hypershine Lipgloss, Liquid Lipstick, Plumping Lip Glaze and the new Minty Lipgloss. All five types of gloss provide a fabulous result without the product being grainy or ‘plastic’ like, as well as having beautiful fresh fragrances and a slight cooling sensation on your lips. All of the applicators are soft and pleasant to use, my personal favourite being the ‘smooth glide on applicator’ from the Liquid Lipstick. The range of colour is great too – providing everything from clear and nude tones, right through to bright pinks and deep browns. When they’re applied to lips they blend with your natural lip tone well, so it doesn’t look completely false or hidious, just a lovely glossy colour.
I’m in love with their new Minty Lipgloss which launches soon in even more colours. The pack is more premium looking than the rest, with its square case and black matte lid, and looks a lot more expensive than it actually is (£3.50!) The colours are slightly shimmery so they catch the light perfectly, while the minty fresh sensation really wakes you up and even gives the impression of just-brushed-your-teeth-breath!
This is a fab range of lipglosses that are so cheap it actually pains me to say that they start from £1.50. For this quality you’d expect to pay at least triple that. This brand seems to be something of a trade secret, available from only limited places, but they do have a website which delivers ridiculously quickly. At these prices you can afford to buy one of everything!
