A little while back I cashed in 500 points at Sephora for a Smashbox sampler. Included? A mini version of their lip gloss in the shade Disco Rose. I’m usually a pro-lipstick over lip gloss girl, but I was feeling adventurous and put this on…and on and on. It didn’t take long for me to pick up the full-size version and since, this baby’s been on my lips nearly non-stop.
It seemed unlikely that I could ever get excited over a lip gloss, but I find myself posting about this ravenously on Instagram and recommending it to friends, or anyone that will listen. So naturally I had to post about it on Dream in Lace as well. Obvs!
It sure is fun to apply lipstick isn’t it? Perhaps even more fun than lipstick. Remember on Gossip Girl when Serena asserted that lipstick lasts longer but lip gloss is more fun? Well, girlfriend was right. The Smashbox lip gloss is ultra smooth and creamy, feeling almost buttery on the lips. You can easily build up for loads of color impact as well, without fear of things getting ‘glumpy’. (I’m pretty sure I just made up a word there.)
In a nutshell, I’m enjoying stepping out of my lipstick comfort zone and having a ‘gloss’ moment. I’m so impressed with this Smashbox lip gloss that I’m already vying for more shades, including their seductive red. It’s winter time and my lips are really appreciating the break from matte lipstick. While Smashbox doesn’t make any claims about this being moisturizing, I swear there’s something in it that does prevent my lips from getting chapped. Miracle!
So, if you’re in the mood to treat yourself to something fun…pucker up and give Smashbox‘s lipgloss in Disco Rose a try! Also, dish on what your favorite lip glosses are. Maybe I need to start growing my collection! 😉
