BREAKING BEAUTY NEWS: I have found the best lip gloss in the entire world. No, seriously. THE ENTIRE WORLD. And guess what? IT ONLY COSTS $2.99!
EXCUSE ME ONE SECOND WHILE I RUN VICTORY LAPS AROUND MY STUDIO APARTMENT.
OK. IM BACK.
It all started on a boring Thursday afternoon while I was browsing the aisles of Ulta, looking for some matte nail polish for my sister. A cute little pink lip gloss tube (NYX “Mood” Lip Gloss) caught me eye and I had that weird sixth sense that something magical was about to happen. My sparkly senses were tots tingling (well, I think that’s what was happening. I was also deep in heavy text with an ex-crush who turned out to be an asshat but that’s a story for another blog and he does not deserve to be declared the source of my tingles) and did I mention it was only $2.99??? (Sidenote: The website says it costs $4.49 but it was only $2.99 in-store so I’m not sure what’s wrong with the internet today. This kind of reminds me of the time I got in trouble in college for just writing “WIKIPEDIA” as my sources for a college paper. I still don’t know what was up with that professor but she definitely needed this lip gloss. The entire world needs this lip gloss.) Not paying much attention to what was about to be a serious makeup game changer, I threw it into my cart chalked full of bottles of hairspray and left.
I forgot all about the magical lip gloss for a few weeks, as I have a tendency to do with most things in my life.
A few weeks later I found the lip gloss in my car and got really excited. I then put on the lip gloss and my entire life changed. Well, as much as lip gloss can change your life. The gloss starts off clear and then changes to the most kissable, sexy shade of hot pink you have ever seen outside of a Lisa Frank Lunch Box. It does not run, it is the PURFECT consistency, it lasts for hours and when it does finally wear off a little bit it leaves the most vibrant pink lipstain. I have literally never worn it without a girl stopping me and inquiring about the magic that was happening on my face. It’s very similar to the highly popular JK Jemma Kidd Lip ID Color-Adapt, a product I love but don’t buy that often because even I think $20.00 for lip gloss is a bit much, especially when you lose stuff as much as I do. Which reminds me, if anyone sees the cat I got 2 years ago named kitty, please let me know.
Girls, you can trust me on two things: 1. I always carry travel sized hairspray so don’t be afraid to ask next time you see me out 2. I would never lie to you about the value of a beauty product.
NYX “Mood” Gloss is available at Ulta and probably other locations that I am too lazy to google. I currently have six tubes (4 unopened) because I was worried that after I posted this blog it would become so popular I would no longer have access to it. So if you want one let me know girl!
