So, I've been on the hunt for a lipgloss that will make my lips look like they're naturally light pink (without having to put on a lipstick to create that light pink). Shimmer....shine...are a bonus!

So, I was looking for a MAC lipgloss called Morning Glory that I know does that, which is realllly pretty as well....I couldn't find that, but I found MAC's lipglass in Cultured which is a tad darker but gives that light pink, shimmery effect. So while in the store, I was about to purchase Cultured, then I don't know, I started browsing The Body Shop lippies and found one that looked exactly like Cultured....obviously for half the price lol if not half, obviously less. So, with baited breath I took The Body Shop's Hi-Shine Lip Treatment in Party Pink. After the deed was done, immediately I wiped off what I had on my lips in hopes that this would not disappoint. I had no prior experience with any of The Body Shop's lipglosses so I had no idea what on earth to expect!
So anyway, I applied it and needless to say grinned from ear to ear, thrilled that it was indeed exactly what I wanted!

There are so many good things to say about this's nice and sticky ( I LOVE STICKY), to me, sticky means a longer wear, but I also noticed that my hair didn't stick to my lips as much as it does with other glosses, so good for them on that! The other thing is, it really is SHINE, it's super sparkly as well, all the micro multi-coloured sparkles really amp up this gloss. Lastly, the scent....the website says it's passion fruit, it is sooooo yummy!!!!!!! The website also says this about it:
  • Pearl pigments give lips a glimmering finish.
  • Provide effective hydration with an ultra-glossy, dermatologist-approved formulation that is long-lasting and non-sticky.
  • Moisturizing Community Trade marula oil from Namibia helps to repair skin’s moisture barrier, leaving lips soft and supple.
All in all, I'm in love...I've even eaten and had a drink and my lips still felt like my gloss never moved...didn't look in a mirror but I could feel that it was still there... I'm so impressed and glad that I tried this. I had this weird preconceived notion that these glosses were going to be more on the slippery side (Cover Girl Wet slicks) and not so pigmented (think some of the Beauty Rush glosses) but it is not!!! For which I am glad!!!

What are your favourite glosses of the moment??

Look at all the sparkles....i loooooove!!!
This is the actual colour of the lipgloss.

Maybe it's time to put myself under the popular ban!!

Lately I haven't been using much lipgloss, but have tried these TBS Hi-Shine Lip Treatments and they are amaaazing! ;)
Lovely shade you picked out!
Surprised that you find them sticky though, I never had one that I found to be sticky!

@Crystal S - me either, this is my first! I'm so happy I tried it too!

@Tina - Really? You know, I think that I had tried one and it didn't seem sticky the way I like them to be sticky and so I didn't even bother looking at them, but for me this one has a good amt of stick!! I basically crossed my fingers before buying it just in case it wasn't sticky...and I doubt I would've been able to return it (this is JA lol) but I LOVE THEM I WANT MORE :)
