    Okay who doesn't know about Wet n Wild? Almost everyone has! And if you haven't you are about to! They decided to send us 6 of their new "Glassy Gloss" lip gels and ask for our opinions.
    On their page it says "Ultra-glossy, sheer gel adds high, glassy shine with a hint of color in an oh-so-lickable fruity flavor. Enriched with vitamins, nutrients, oils, and antioxidants to moisturize while keeping lips soft and supple."
    GLOSSY they are and I love a nice high shine! It comes in a clear squeeze tube with screw on cap so it's easy to see which color you are reaching for and a little goes a long way with these new formulated lip gels. I was quite impressed with all of these and has to point out that the quality of their makeup has grown tremendously from a few years ago.( I have tried their new eyeshadow palettes and couldn't believe the quality for their awesome price! ) These lip gels are sooo affordable at only $2.99!!
    These barely have any sticky feeling to them, but just the right consistency that you know this gloss won't wear off in two minutes like some others. I wore the color in the last picture to the bar in Boston and when I got home and put photos up online, my cousin and I got compliments on how 'luscious' pinkish/red lips looked!  And it looked good with my pink/purple eyeshadow I had on too!
     Quick tip: These over any color lipstick work wonders and can transform a boring old color into something way more interesting!
    The thing I really like about these colors is that they can be worn really sheer for just a little shine and sparkle or you can layer it a little and get more color payoff with the pink ones that have a little glitter look to them. The ones with out any shimmer  to them I found weren't as thick as the others but they are all so wearable and fun, and can match any eye look you do. Below are some photos and swatches!

I love finding new and lesser known makeup companies, especially small ones, where the stuff is practically made in someones kitchen... haha.

This small mineral company founded by Christina Kocher, is called Pure Luxe. All of their products are handmade in small batches and hand packaged. 

This review is for Lippie Compacts. I can not speak for the packaging, because I only ordered a sample size... but I must say... the samples are big and only ONE DOLLAR. I am going to order more.

The color I got is Glam. Christina describes glam as "Sexy crimson red with tons of shine!" Which I would say is pretty accurate. This color is a buildable redish pink, and looks very glossy. The color looks like a stain, in the sense its is sheer, yet colorful. But has the look of a gloss, without the thick sticky, goopiness. This lippie has a very light, slick and moisturizing feel, and has no scent or taste making it universally great for everyones likes and dislikes. 

This lippie is perfect for no makeup, natural, as well as dark heavy looks. It can be built up for a stronger color with layering. 

Lippie SAMPLE - approx. 1/8 tsp. in jar is $1.00
Lippie FULL SIZE Compact is $6.00

Want juicy lips without leaving your wallet dry?!

Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Color-Full in Flaunt.

Love the look of plump lips but dont have to money for injections and expensive plumpers? NO PROBLEM! I have found an affordable alternative to getting sexy lips. 

My favorite thing about this gloss is the smell. It reminds me of winter. It is spicy. Cloves, cinnamon, orange.... delicious. 

Flaunt is a pretty pale slightly mauvey pink, but this gloss also comes in other colors.

the finish is a high shine, and has micro shimmers. 

The wand is a brush, and is soft and flexible, but still has great control. 

As with most plumpers, this gloss has a slight "tickle and tingle" ... which is the price we pay for beauty. If you dont like how plumpers feel, I would not suggest this product to you.  
 
Size wise.... there is a noticable puff, and fullness added to the lip, but doesnt look fake. 

I purchased this product with my own money.I am planning on purchasing more colors as well. 

$7 at most drug stores.

Couleur Caramel was kind enough to send me some products to review. This in no way influenced my opinions. Unfortunately because my products are samples, they are not fully labeled. I am guessing that this lipstick is matte finish, in the color Garnet Red. 

 The smell and texture of these lipsticks are waxy. I found that putting a minty gloss or chapstick over, gets rid of smell, taste and tackiness. 

The pigmentation is AMAZING, and these lipsticks last HOURS AND HOURS AND HOURS without reapplying. It is amazing.

I really recommend this product for someone who wants to do their makeup in the morning, go to work all day and go out at night and never have to reapply, or even look in a mirror.

These lipsticks are rich in plant-based active ingredients, and 100% of the total ingredients are of natural origin.

Price : $21.00 USD

Rimmel was kind enough to send me some products to review. Although I was sent this gloss for free, my opinion is in no way affected by this gesture. 

This gloss is very pretty. It is a sheer formulation with glitter and shimmer reflects in it. It has a slick feeling, and is not at all sticky or goopy. It lasts a good amount of time on my lips. 

The scent is a very generic makeup smell, but is not strong enough to be bothersome.

The packing is slim, and attractive. The wand is similar to a doe foot applicator, but is flexible and slim on both sides at the tip, making it very easy to apply. 

Vitamins A, C and E as well as collagen help keep your lips looking and feeling good from the inside out.

What I really enjoy about this gloss is that it has an SPF of 15. Who ever said you had to choose between safety and sexy?!

The color I have is # 365 - Pink Spa

0.20 fl oz for around $5 at most drugstores.
