I have to confess; I am a lipgloss addict. I love lipgloss. It’s as bad as my jean addiction. I am always searching for the perfect lipgloss. About the time I find my favorite color, they discontinue it. Can you help me understand this? It doesn’t make sense to me.
When I am searching for a lipgloss, I look for certain things. First, it has to smell good or not have a smell at all. Then it has to feel good on my lips, not tacky. I like it to slide on. Then, it must be the right color and have a little shimmer to it.
Right now, my favorite brand is Chanel and the color Twinkle, that I loved, has been discontinued. So now my new favorite color is Constellation. I like the gold flecks in the lipgloss which gives my lips that little shimmer.
Gus Mayer has a Chanel Event twice a year in the spring and the fall and they bring in Daniel Henigman from LA. He is amazing. Daniel has taught me a lot about Chanel and some great tips. One of my favorite things he has shown me was how to put on Correcteur Perfection Long Lasting Concealer on my lips, then a shimmer eyeshadow (Ombre Premiere in Sable) then the last step this amazing lip gloss (Rouge Coco Gloss in 774). I know it sounds crazy but it looks beautiful. If you want to try this look I would recommend going to Gus Mayer if you are in Birmingham and get Eva or Sherrie to show you exactly how to do this. They can also call you and let you know when Daniel will be back in town.
Another great product to help my lips to look their best is Le Lift Levres Et Contours. It helps with the smoothness and plumpness along with softening some of the lines around the lips. Now, who doesn’t need this?
