I do! It may sound a bit odd, but I love the look of a purple lipgloss.
So before I dive into this post, I would like to take a moment to curse the major suckerage that is the monthlies. I spent all of today rolling around on my bed courtesy of the worst cramps I’ve had in two years. I took a couple of Tylenol, and cuddled up with some heating pads which seemed to defeat the sore back+cramps that were attacking me, but then they came back after an hour or so. Lovely. I have a sneaking suspicion that I sounded as though I were in the middle of labor (think whewww wheww SCREAM wheww AAAAAH puff puff puff).
hehe I thought this picture looked so cool with the shadow reflections on the lid. Click to read on!
I got these Awake Stardom Lip Glosses back when Bath&Body Works was awesome and carried all manner of Asian brands (Kose, Awake, etc.). I wish they’d bring those back because those were some high-quality products. Anyways, when they were cleaning out Awake, I snatched up a bunch of the heavily discounted items including these two glosses in G-1 and G-3. My favorite is the G-1 gloss for the purple color. It’s unbelievably pretty.
Here’s what it looks like on the lips with flash.
I must have taken about 20 pictures, but not one was able to capture how amazing this gloss looks. Picture an iridescent purple color with blue sparkles. That’s about the closest description I can give. As for the light pink color, it’s lovely, but nowhere near as special. The texture of these is very interesting. They’re light, and almost fluffy yet feel very moisturizing going on. Also, when I swipe some with my finger, it feels firm and fluffy at the same time. I’m so good at describing lol…er do you kinda get what I mean?
Here’s some shots of the G-3 duo
The orange is super bright and gorgeous, and the white has this beautiful almost-green sheen to it. If I had known these were so cool at the time, I would’ve snapped some other colors up too. Honestly, I’m not even sure where I would go about getting Awake products now. Let me know if you’d like to see lip swatches of the other 3 colors. The purple is the most mesmerizing.
So what about you guys? Do you like unconventional lip colors? I’ve got a post on green lipgloss coming up later this week (I love it). Probably the only color of lipgloss that I don’t own is blue, but the Milani one I was eyeing has mysteriously disappeared from my local CVS’s shelves. Hmm…
Hope everyone’s having a good end to their weekends,
