A short one about cheap lipgloss

A few weeks ago, in spite of owning far too much makeup, I felt the need to buy some new lipgloss. Luckily I was quite skint so didn't end up with Lancome or MAC (though I never buy MAC lipgloss, to be fair)! Instead I popped into Boots and had a look at lower end makeup. There was a 3 for 2 offer on Collection 2000 so it seemed rude not to! My sister got one and I got the other two.

Although incredibly gimmicky, Hotlights is just a regular run of the mill gloss. It's not incredibly pigmented but that's kind of a plus in my book as it matches with more lipsticks. Neither is it vilely sticky and gloopy, which is something I can't bear. As you can see from the pictures, the colours are inoffensive but pretty enough to bring some shine to your lipsticks or just polishing up a daytime minimal look. The light and mirror aspect is not something that would make me rush out to buy it but I'm sure it appeals to some younger girls! So, if you see these on offer again, they're worth trying out .

I have to say, MAC lip glass, aside from the stickiness, are really great. The pigments last for a long time. But there is something to be said for a new cheapy lip gloss to pick you up!

thing is I'm a lipstick girl all the way so gloss with stickiness is not an option!
how are you feeling today?
