Okay so…I have my bullet and angry-word proof armor on for this review. I’ve never been so afraid to post a review in my LIFE. …Except for that one time I bashed WoW but that’s a completely different medium. That may or may not be a spoiler for my feelings on the oh-so-popular and highly-reviewed Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butters. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves….
These glosses are the stuff that answers prayers. I know that’s a major spoiler alert for this review, but I figured I’d let you know. Just in case you were planning on buying some OTHER gloss before these.
I recently had to redo a few beauty profiles I have on some sites, as they were no longer accurate at all. Biggest difference? I went from wearing lipstick “never” to wearing it “daily” and visa versa with lip gloss. Still, there are some glosses that have a special place in my heart. Like MAC’s Prrr! And no, it’s not just ’cause it’s feline-named.
Have you ever been accused of asking someone what they think only so you can do the opposite of what they say? I have – and i’ll own up to it. I’m hardly ever contrary just to be contrary but when I swatched this color on the back of my hand at ULTA and asked my boyfriend what he thought, the disgusted look on his face cinched my decision to buy it. And BOY am I glad I bought this! I love it so~
It’s quite funny. I made the jump from brands like ELF, NYX, Milani and Wet’n'Wild to MAC, Tarte, Too Faced, Clinique, Chanel and Burberry (all of which will be reviewed in due time) with little pain. Such was the transition that I ended up skipping a lot of the “higher-lower end” stuff like Revlon, Cover Girl and L’Oreal. The only products I’ve picked up were those that got rave blog reviews or that had some novelty value. L’Oreal’s Colour Riche Lipstick and Colour Riche “Le Gloss” in Peach Fuzz were the first of my drugstore purchases I made with no real input from anyone else. I just browsed the aisles and had semi-high hopes for the colors.
