Lip Gloss Love

I've never been a lip gloss/lipstick kind of girl.  I just really don't like the feel of it on my lips:  It either dries them out, makes them sticky, or just feels heavy.

I live by my Rosebud Minted Rose Lip Balm.  It keeps my lips from getting chapped and also adds a little shine. 

I've recently had a change of heart though.  Don't get me wrong, I still LOVE, my Rosebud, but I now have a lip gloss mistress: Clinique Long Last Glosswear.

The affair all started last weekend when I got this free gift at the Nordstrom Clinique--inside was my new love!

The gift included two shades (Bamboo Pink and Stellar Plum) of the Long Last Glosswear.  I think the Stellar Plum was made for me! 


Long Last Glosswear

Stellar Plum
In person it's a big more red/burgundy

This lipgloss still has the thick, sticky feeling I can't stand, but it's worth it!  The Stellar Plum seems to match my natural lip color and makes my lips look extra plump and a little shiny.

Let me preface this picture by saying that I abhor kissy face/pouty pictures, BUT, I made the sacrifice for you, my readers, so that you could see the pout with this lipgloss, haha!

My plump, glossy pout

I love it so much I find myself putting it on even when I'm in my pajamas just because I like to look up in the mirror and see my lips in it, ha! 

Normal picture with the gloss

And the kicker is, it's only $14!  I'm going to use the heck out of my little sample, but once I run out I will be making my way over to Clinique to stock up on more!  It comes in 17 shades which you can see here, though I recommend testing it at the Clinique counter because I don't think those little swatches are the most accurate.

 Do you have a favorite lip gloss?

Have a great weekend!

  1. Cute! I can never find a lip gloss that I like. Lately plain old chapstick has been my best friend.

  2. I'm the same exact way.. I've never been a lip gloss girl. Just give me my cocoa butter chapstick and I'm good to go. Since you've found one you adore, though, maybe there's hope for me too :) I've been eying that Clinique gift bag for a while because the makeup bag is so cute!

  4. That color looks so pretty on you, Allie!!

    I only wear lip balm myself. I feel like whenever I wear gloss/lipstick, I only end of ruining it somehow... lol

    But the Clinique gloss sounds like it is worth a try! :)

  7. Is it bad that I don't have a favorite lip gloss because I usually stick with chapstick? (Carmex or Blistex.) Fashion fail. And thanks for the well wishes on my race!!!

  9. You are adorable ;) I love the make up bag all the samples came in! (That's how I always get my make up bags-from sample gifts like these). And clinique always has the best. I use their foundation up the wazoo!

  11. Hmmm, think I'll try it. It looks great on you! I have an absolute lip gloss fetish! My favorite right now is Sugar tinted lip treatment in Plum. It's sheer and light but gives just the right amount of color. Not sticky at all! It's a little pricey, but worth it. Sephora carries it.

  12. That was a killer deal for the freebie! And to find a new fave lipgloss??? It's kismet. (c: I am a huge fan of Bath and Body Work's Bigelow & Co lipglosses, they are also tinted, but they have a minty flavor and you don't get that heavy/sticky gloss feeling...but you can bet your booty I'll be heading to Nordstrom's today to check this out!

  14. I love Clinique's free gifts - they're chock full of goodness. I'd love to try this gloss out!

  15. Oh yes! Wonderful recommendation! I'm in the same boat where I hate wearing lipgloss or lipsticks.. the either make the straw or cup that I'm drinking out of all funky, or they just taste terrible!
    But I'll have to look into this Clinique stuff :)

    Thanks for the suggestion :)

  22. Such cute pics! I am not a lipgloss kind of gal, except when I was 15 and addicted to those that tasted like my favorite things, like the Dr.Pepper and 7UP lipgloss! I dont' like the sticky texture so am a MAC lipstick fanatic. But this looks great on you!

  24. Allie! Mary Lantor is one of my best friends here already and we are living together when we get out of institute. We are in the process of looking for an apartment right now. Also, Natalie Mercado(sp?) from UVA is living with us, and two other girls, one from USC and one from BC. If you come to Houston, you will have to come visit!
