Glossy Girl

Just when I was about to toss my gloss, I received a complimentary tube of Smashbox O-Gloss last night. This lipgloss claims to be intuitive and reacts with our personal skin chemistry to transform from clear to our own custom shade of pink. Being the lipgloss addict that you know I am, I was super excited to try it. I really didn’t think that it would work, but I was so wrong. After using it, my lips turned my ideal shade of pink that I usually only achieve by applying a mixture of several glosses. Needless to say, I’m a fan. Although those darker lipstick shades are tempting, it looks like I still won't be tossing the gloss just yet!


Available at www.nordstrom.com for $22

Have you ever tried this product? I hear that they have a similar formula for cheeks. Would you try either? For one lucky BGG reader, she'll get the chance. Just shoot me an email and the first reader to tell me the year that my favorite TV show "A Different World," aired will win her own tube of Smashbox O-Gloss!

I'm now on the hunt for this lip gloss! I love using carmax and lip gloss, but not combined-lol! Any how, i'm going to try it; thanks BGG!

The gloss sounds great and I can't wait to use it. The first episode of "A different world" to air was
9/24/1987

I have this stuff for the cheeks and it is wonderful!! It's a little difficult to use though. But I am definitely going to try the glossy!

I have been eyeballing this since it came out. I have yet to try the cheek version. I heard it didn't work for brown girls so I just passed.

No gloss for me but the concept is intriguing! I still vote for darker hues during the fall and winter seasons! But to each his/her own!

I'm intrigued. Can't wait to try it.

I wish, I wish I was the first reader to have the correct answer, but I'm terrible with dates. Oh well my consolation prize will be for me to by the gloss. HA!!

OMG! I think I've died and gone to heaven! I'm definitely a pink fanatic! To get a gloss which transforms from clear to out own custom shade is fabulous. Sorry MAC ,I gotta throw out the Oyster Girl Gloss now!

Kei said...

I LOVE lip gloss! And this looks and sounds wonderful! I have always used Victoria's Secret lip gloss and Bath & Body Works lip gloss, but if this is better, I may have a new favorite! Thanks for sharing!

I can't wait to try this out. But what if I don't like the shade of pink it creates for me? Anyway, I might just give it a try but not the cheek version I'll stick to my powder blush!
