High/Low: Lip Gloss

My latest obsession in lip products is highly pigmented jelly-like glosses. I was first introduced to them last spring when luxe brands like Chanel and Dior came out with these vibrant yet wearable formulas. I was particularly smitten with the new (at the time) Dior Addict Crystal Gloss which was a vividly coloured gloss in the tube, however once applied it left my lips with a burst of sheer colour. After the shine of the gloss was long gone my lips were left with a pinkish stain that lasted all day. So pretty.

The colours are slightly different yet equally pretty—still offering the highlighter pink shade I love called Fuchsia. The only drawback to the gloss is the hefty price tag. It will set you back $31—I'm going to have to save my pennies so I can stock up. Or find a substitute... Perhaps the beauty gods were listening or maybe just the fine folks over at Joe Fresh Style because last week a package arrived with the new Pop Glosses, costing only $8 each! They come in seven shades, each one better than the next. I tested out Pink Lemonade and Petunia and I'm digging the ratio of colour vs. glossiness. The gloss applied easily and can be built up for a higher colour payoff. We want to know: What lip gloss, lipstick or lip balm are you obsessing over? Dior is available at select department stores. Joe Fresh Beauty is available at Loblaws Super Stores.
