This lip gloss has me questioning my commitment to Sparkle Motion. Shu Uemura Vinyl Unlimited ($20) is a rare breed of shimmer- and glitter-free lip gloss. Put simply, Vinyl Unlimited is to lip gloss as lucite heels are to footwear: Unashamedly, unavoidably sexy.
While you won't see me don stripper heels anytime soon, I've become a huge fan of this gloss. True to its name, it provides slick, wet-look opaque color. It makes me feel like a total badass rocker girl, and I like to wear the gloss with minimal makeup to show off a bright pow! of color. And while I'm not looking like a sex kitten here, you have to admit, that gloss is intense. Try that hot pink shade if you want to go full tilt, or opt for a more peach for a still-sexy but more demure look.
