Lip Service

Dear Female Readers,

If you're anything like me, you own tons of lipsticks and lip glosses all born in the search for the "perfect" lip-coating.  You know - Enough color that you don't look washed out, but not too much for everyday.  Glossy so you look fresh and young but no glitter for work/people taking you seriously.  Oh, and preferably something that doesn't come with a wand because they splatter and flip out of your hand.  I mean, seriously!  Why must this be so hard?

Well, I have found an answer to my lipstick/gloss prayers:  Yves Saint Laurent's Volupte Sheer Candy - Glossy Balm Crystal Color.  Yes, that's an unnecessarily long name for "gloss in a tube" but trust me - it's fab.  I personally love the Mouthwatering Berry for work (red but not that too-red-for-day-even-if-you-do-live-in-the-Hamptons as oft sported by Ms. Ashley Davenport) and the Succulent Pomegranate is perfect for fun/warmer temps.  And because they're in a tube they never leak or drip, so you can comfortably apply en route to any appointment or occasion risk free.

But what if you want something just pretty for a Sunday/everyday?  Try Dior Addict Lip Glow.  First, thank you, Dior, for picking a less tiresomely vague name.  Second and even better, the sheer gloss does, truly, make your lips glow in the way you hoped Smashbox's O-Gloss would deliver before it turned your lips fuchsia (which is fun if you were going for that, way too much if not).  Soft, pretty, moisturizing, in a tube sans it!

Go get 'em!
