I hate hate hate taking up close pictures of my mouth, but I wanted you to see the sparkles. I’m doing this for you.
Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in True Red & Butter London Lippy Gloss in Chancer
Right about the time I got this glitter lip gloss and thought about this review, there was a really nice tutorial for a bolder glitter lip at The Beauty Department, so there go my big plans on being original. Mine uses a lipgloss that already has red glitter in it, so it’s a little bit simplified.
As you can see, the glitter is actually pretty subtle, but it’s festive and fun and I love it despite my usual aversion to glittery lipsticks/eye shadows/etc. Now, it doesn’t have a lot of longevity. The lipgloss kind of breaks down the lipstick so the color doesn’t last terribly long, but I haven’t tried this with a longer lasting red lip stain or something like that. This is just fun and I like it, plus with a kissy romance centered holiday around the corner, why not feature some more lip love.
On an unrelated note, I love this shirt I’m wearing. It’s the Portofino Shirt from Express. I’ll have to do a post for it because it’s soft and I love that it has a contrast collar. They have it in a bunch of colors, but this was my favorite.
