Hi Blog! Miss me? I've been super busy at work, but the good news is that my supervisor is also a beauty enthusiast! She actually got me this gloss last week, but long story short, I'm super impressed with it!

I'm sure we all remember those hair sticking glosses with bad pigmentation which leave much more to be desired from the early late 1990s and early 2000s. This gloss is not like that all, in fact, it's probably the opposite. It is super pigmented, almost wears like a lipstick for me, and I don't feel the need to use a balm before I put it on or exfoliate my lips, which is a definite plus because everyone has those lazy days.

I love the color of this gloss, it's a definite spring/summer color and it's an absolutely gorgeous orange. As it is super pigmented, it will stain your lips a little. I find the doe foot applicator a little unwieldy as it's kind of large and short for a doe foot applicator, but, I guess I don't mind it that much, and I can always use my own lip brush.

I have worn this gloss over a Maybelline Vivid in Vibrant Mandarin, and I found that it worked out very well. The colors are quite similar, but the Vivid is a little bit lighter/more neon, so when you layer the gloss over the lipstick it makes the gloss seem a little more vivid.

The staying power is nice, but like all glosses, it's going to leave marks on your significant other, your cup, or just about anything you put your lips on.

Yes, it does leave marks.. 
All in all, I'm definitely impressed in this gloss, and will definitely look for more! Have you discovered a new favorite recently?
