I ditched lipgloss in 2010 along with errrybody else that was done with their hair getting stuck to their face whilst running for the bus.
Jojo might still have been working that gloss in her LEAVE (GET OUT, RIGHT NOW IT’S THE END OF YOOOOU AND ME) video but I was done.
That was… until yesterday.
There I was, perusing the makeup stands of John Lewis, when I approached the Urban Decay counter with the intention of asking the girl working it what the differences reeeaaaally are between setting spray and spraying your face with hairspray (heresy I know, my skin hates me).
She was wearing the Revolution lip gloss in Liar and I had serious makeup envy.. #makeupgoals as a sixteen year old today might say.
Firstly, I must admit I am obsessed with any and all nude lipsticks. Mac’s Twig and Velvet Teddy are my day-to-day go-to’s but never before had I fallen in love with a lipgloss, nude or not.
Shopaholic and sucker for a sales person that I am, I decided to bite the bullet, spend £15 and take home my nudey shade of lipgloss. And I am so glad that I did.
I paired the gloss with Mac’s Nice n Spicy lipliner, which was a brilliant match. Surprisingly, the pigmentation in the lipgloss was really strong so all it took was one lick of gloss on either lip. It also didn’t smell or taste like rotten cardboard like the lipglosses I remember from yesteryear.
Plus, it was really nice to add a little bit of moisture to my poor dried-out lips instead of forcing them to crack up with a matte lipstick like they usually do.
The only thing I would say is that the Revolution gloss didn’t last anywhere near as long as my usual lipsticks do. In my opinion that’s the only downside to this product. I’m more than happy to keep reapplying throughout the day but I wonder if I might get through the pot too quickly.
Either way, I would definitely recommend it overall.. especially in this shade. MY LIPGLOSS IS POPPIN, MY LIPGLOSS IS COOL…
