My New Favorite Lip Gloss – A Kim Kardashian Favorite!
Although I am a huge fan of MAC lip glosses, I have been finding myself exploring other brands and looking for new colors. As if I really need any new colors! I probably have about 100 glosses at this point, but being that I am all about trying new things and having the latest beauty items, there is always extra room for another lip gloss!
For anyone that doesn’t know, Kim Kardashian’s lip staples are MAC’s “Angel” lipstick and NARS “Turkish Delight” lip gloss. I’m probably one of the few MAC addicts out there that DON’T own “Angel” and it doesn’t really attract me in any way. (Same with “Myth” lipstick, MAC’s most popular nude shade that you will NEVER see in my bag anytime soon). ”Angel” to me isn’t really special, it’s a really nude baby pink. It’s nothing I’ve never seen before!
For anyone that knows me, I am NOT the type of person to read a magazine to discover a celebrity has a certain product, and then run to the store the next day to get it. That is kind of uncool in my book. I would first want to investigate and see if it is something that expresses my personal taste and it has to look good on me of course!
HOWEVER, “Turkish Delight” is quite the treat! I was looking in Sephora about a month ago and looking at all the NARS lip gloss shades. ”Turkish Delight” grabbed my eye in an instant! It is just a really pretty light baby pink with just the right amount of brightness! It sort of has a coral undertone to it although it’s definitely a baby pink. The texture of the gloss is creamy yet sheer.
When I grabbed the gloss and checked the bottom, sure enough, it was the famous color that Kim Kardashian always tells people she wears!
I have to say that I do very much like the gloss as does Kim Kardashian. I have had the gloss for about a week now and find myself wearing it almost everyday.
It’s not something that I’d personally ever wear by itself being that it is so sheer; however, it’s great for throwing over lipstick! I have been using it over pinks, corals, light browns, etc.
I explain to people all the time, when creating a new lip combo, don’t always matchy-match. Meaning don’t wear a pink gloss over a pink lipstick only. Why not throw a plum gloss over a pink lipstick? I find whenever I mix random colors together, I come up with the coolest colors and people tend to always ask me what I am wearing. It’s just fun to be creative with your makeup!
