Lip gloss is making a comeback. For me, that’s kind of a big deal because I haven’t appreciated it as much as other lip products. I’m very picky when it comes to lip glosses because a lot of them enhance my already luscious lips, and I am generally not a fan of very shiny lips. I picked up the ColourPop Ultra Glossy Lip in Sookie ($6.00) a while back, mainly for the swatch and the name of the shade; I loved me some True Blood back in the day and certainly relive those days when I wear this gloss. The gloss is a plum, berry-like shade and looks that way on me. The makeup I choose to wear has a lot to do with what lip product I end up picking. For this look, I wanted to do something romantic, as a salute to Bill and Sookie’s great love affair.
My skin type
My lips are really dry and I use lip balm on the regular. I do not bother using it when I use the Ultra Glossy Lips, though.
How I use it
The gloss goes on semi-opaque; two coats is enough to cover the lips completely.
What I like about it
As I mentioned before, I would gladly buy lipstick over lip gloss, but ColourPop makes it easy to love their lip glosses from the non-sticky and slightly moisturizing nature of them, to the plethora of shades and the uber affordable price. Sookie in particular glams up any look and I love the name! It lasts about as long as a lip gloss should – around 6 hours – or when I eat something. I also find that it doesn’t make my lips look larger or like I just ate some really greasy food.
What could be better
I have no complaints about this lip gloss!
