Okay, so since the last one was a whole lot of fail, I figured I’d do a run through with another gloss to make up for it! My weapon of choice? Urban Decay’s XXX Shine Cooling Lip Gloss. Now, I do want to make clear-this is NOT a lip plumper. However, at $16 a tube (and with 11 shades to choose from) this is a plausible choice! I got mine a while ago during a promotion while I could get 10 mini’s for free after spending $20. My favorites are “Ozone” “Guys Heart Betsy” and “Quickie.” The first is a stunning clear gloss, the second is a drop dead red, and the third is a sexy hot pink.
Upon application, the gloss is sticky-however, in a smooth, acceptable day.If your hair is long and the day is windy, I’d advise towards a rubber band. In the meantime, the gloss has an amazing peppermint smell and a slight tingling sensation. It’s not harsh or burning like many of the plumping glosses on today’s market. And, even though the gloss doesn’t have any plumping ingredients, its high shine finish does make my lips look bigger and sexier! I’m pretty sure even the minis are going to last me a long time, but I’ll definitely be replacing them when they run out!
Bonus? Urban Decay’s “Love it or Leave it Guarantee!” I’m not sure if it’s new-I don’t remember seeing it before-but it’s great for an addict like me! Urban Decay now allows you to buy and try, then return products for any reason within $45 days for a full refund!
