What year is it again? According to what I’m wearing on my lips it’s 2007. I entered high school ten years ago with a tube of CoverGirl Wetslicks Lip Gloss and the hope that I wouldn’t do anything to embarrass myself. I definitely left both of those things in 2007. The embarrassment thing when I stepped on the sleeve of my jacket in between classes and slid around a crowded hallway like Bambi on ice. Embarrassment is inevitable. But the gloss? Yeah, I gave up on that after getting my hair stuck on my mouth one too many times. Now it’s 2017 and the gloss is back. I’m tired of overly matte lips for everyday and I have rounded up the best neutral lip glosses for people who hate lip gloss.
Nothing makes me happier than finding something at a low price that’s amazing quality. When I look at my makeup collection, I find that most of my favorite products are actually from the drugstore. The drugstore these days is more expensive than ever before and I honestly can’t be bothered to spend $15 on a product from from the drugstore that’s average when I can get amazing products for $10 or less.
I’m very picky when it comes to palettes. I am not a person who needs a stark black or a pure white. I typically don’t use neon shades or pastels. I like to have a variety of finishes and textures. Basically, I have fairly high standards. So when Kim and I wandered into the NYX store in Austin, I was ready to get my hands dirty with swatches and pick out the best shades for my perfect quad.
