Latest Brilliant Buy

Once again, I blame all you lovely UK ladies for my use of the word brilliant.

Anyway, if you read Nouveau Cheap, which you should if you don't, you should know that there are a bunch of L'Oreal products 75% (including some in the HIP range). I had a coupon this weekend for $5 off a $30 or more purchase and to help me get to that amount, I picked up one of the HIP Shine Struck Liquid Lipcolors in Euphoric a neutral pink with pink shimmer for the very reasonable price of $4.

I'm not sure why I haven't picked up one of these glosses in the past, my guess is the price. At $12.50 give or take, it's a bit much for a drugstore lipgloss. Out of the range, I picked up this shade and I recall there being more options but I guess it was edited with the last 75% sale.
The product comes in a slender tube with a sponge applicator which is a bit longer and slightly slanted. It deposits a good amount of the product on the lips. The lipcolor itself has more of a gel texture, is creamy, non-sticky and smells of cake batter. I found this wore off pretty quickly, but it smells so good I have no problem reapplying it! Also, the formula is quite moisturizing so absolutely fab in this dry weather!

Look out for these at your nearest CVS (some won't have the 75% off stickers up but that doesn't mean there is no sale)!
