Sally Hansen Lipnotic Gem Gloss Review

Doing Drugstore: Sally Hansen Lipnotic Gem Gloss

I like when lip gloss comes in a wand with a brush at the tip of the applicator. Even though it can get bacteria in it the same way that mascara can, it doesn't open in your bag and you don't have to dip your (possibly germy) finger in it to apply. This is the reason I wanted to try Sally Hansen Lipnotic Gem Gloss ($6.99), but with claims like "creates a look of glittery gems under glass" and provides "hypnotic color," I was skeptical.

Lipnotic gloss is remarkably shiny. The shade Bling Bling is a little darker than my natural lip and shimmers, shines, and sparkles from every angle. Staring closely at the glitter in the gloss, I caught a few flecks of blue. I'm not sure I ever thought I would warn that a lip gloss wasn't "work appropriate," but this might actually not be. But if you're a real lip-gloss lover, it might become your favorite. And once I realized I'd been staring at my own lips for nearly 10 minutes, I kind of understood why they called it "hypnotic."

I love this stuff!! I think they have stopped selling it though, I can't find it anywhere. I've received more compliments and comments about this product than I have anything else. The glitter isn't as obvious/pronounced as it sounds.

Eh, not my style. I have naturally rosy lips already, so I tend not to mess with the color much, and my Burt's Bees does just fine. Plus I hate sticky lip stuff, and this looks sticky. It's windy here, so I prefer things that don't make me do an impromptu Cousin It impression.

I've checked these out at Ulta, but I think they're just too glittery for me...I love a high-shine gloss, but glitter isn't usually my thing.

I've been thinking about these. Glittery lips are perfect for the holidays but it can't hurt to get started with them now.
