Just call me the gloss-aholic

I have been wondering why my damn purse feels so heavy lately. Now I know why.

lip gloss

Why I had all of these in my purse is beyond me. 

list of gloss
I categorized them into three piles.
Throw away, my "Eh" pile and the pile I am loving right now.

First up, the throw away pile.

I bought the Laura Mercier to wear in Hawaii on my wedding. The perk that sold me was that it supposedly has something it it that prevents your hair getting stuck to your lips say on a windy day. The color doesn't show to much either which is fine by me, but it's nothing that stands out to me as special. 

Next up, the Nars. YUCK. This stuff does NOT apply well. I even went the extra mile to buy lip primer to help it out some. Didn't do anything to help it. 

My Meh pile is "Meh" simply because the Chanel is a nice color, but really expensive. The hawaiian tropic i wear bec of the high SPF but I feel like I have to continually apply it for it to feel like its on my lips all that much.

My love pile
Soft lips in tickled pink is my all time fave. I have not seen it in stores lately, so I try not to use it all that much! 

My going out lip fave is definitely Two Faced Pillow Talk. I've owned it for over 2 years now, and it really does the trick.

My new obsession is Maybelline's baby soft lips. The stuff is great and really makes you think and feel like your lips are like a ten year olds again! :) The NYX is a nice nude lip gloss I picked up that goes well with the gloss. Quick shout out to Kristen over at love lipstick and pearls for helping me find the NYX and giving me the 411 on it! :)

And there you have it folks.

Did I miss any must have glosses? 


  1. I'm a lip balm-aholic. I always have 2 in my purse and 1 in each jacket pocket so I'm never left with naked lips. It's organic and all natural stuff that my Aunt makes. I'm always on the lookout for a good lip gloss though - on those days I'm looking for a bit of shine. I'll check out the ones in your love pile! Thanks for sharing :)

  2. I have a giveaway on my blog today! I hope you stop by and enter! http://jaxandmarbles.blogspot.com/2013/03/a-giveaway-custom-cake-topper.html

  3. Oh my gosh. This post just makes me love you more! I am a gloss hoarder for sure!

  4. One of my new faves is Hard Candy Glossaholic lip gloss. It's only $5. It makes your lips appear fuller and plumper.

  5. Love Softlips! I always have it in my purse.
