It seems that summer is a time for gloss, as gloss – a thing that has been until now a sticky-tacky product in my mind – has become the rising star of this season.
It may be the fact that it makes your lips bigger or that you look like you’ve recently finished an ice-pop or that y’know gloss is just a little bit of fun. I’ve been loving a nice creamy sheer one that is housed in the greatest packaging of them all. I can’t resist those gold details YSL. You’ve captured my heart.
At first I stayed away from these, as most of the shades featured in blogs and youtube were the shimmery-glitter bombs not the cremes. I’ve nothing against glitter, I may even be very fond of it because – ohhhh shimmery; but I just wasn’t feeling in a glitter packed mood. I’d rather drop some heavy cash on something I can wear all the time and that’s not glitter. So when my local beauty hall had a discount on this little fella I was surprised to discover that there were glitter free shades available, a quick swatch and a sniff and I was hooked.
If you dislike fragranced products stay away, as this has a very sweet – fruity scent but the texture? Heaven. Plush, smooth and glossy completely free of the dreaded sticky texture of the past.
If you’re in the mood for a little luxury – I’d definitely try this one out. I’ve got the shade 203 Corail Gandoura which is a light coral that’s perfect for summer.
