My new favorite $4 gloss
Everytime I walk by a makeup counter at the department store I try not to stop at the array of colorful lipglosses. Resistance is futile. It's like a kid in a candy store. Except…it's me in a makeup store. A few trials and one frustrated makeup artist later I once again explain, "But, they just don't make lipgloss for girls like us!"
To this the makeup artist usually responds, "No, we make all colors for a variety of skin tones."
One day, I was visiting the residence of a fellow editor (sarahkhan) and complimented her lipgloss. She presented a small plastic case and let me try it on. I instantly fell in love with the purplish color. She is shades lighter than me. It looked like it was made for her. But, it also looked like it was made for me. The consistency is just short of being too disgustingly gooey. I lowe it. But, to give credit where credit is due… it turns out one of the other Divanee writers gave it to her as a sample(shyema).
If you live in nyc you can buy at it Duane Reade stores. The brand is called Apt 5. The color is Lp-06. AND the best part…it's pretty easy on your pocket. $4!!
So, it's my new favorite $4 gloss.
This is not to be confused with my old favorite $16 Lustreglass lipgloss.
