I'm a big fan of lip gloss but I kind of hate the icky sticky factor. Why do I always decide to wear gloss on days when I wear my hair down? Why must my hair inevitably end up IN my glossy pout. And a pout it sure is by the time I realise how frustrating lip gloss is.
Australis Show Stopper Gloss is a bit different. You don't quite get the high gloss of a traditional gloss – it is somewhere between a lipstick and a tinted lip balm with a glossy sheen. It is deliciously pigmented and the Fairy Floss lives up to its name.
I bought it weeks and weeks ago and promptly left it in the bottom of a make up bag and forgot about it. The bright pink was too hard to go past and the $10 special at Priceline (usually $12.95) made it impossible to resist but not really a necessity in my life – how many shiny pink lipsticks can a girl own?
I haven't tried the other colours – Hoola Hoop and Firework – but I would easily buy them and use them as my weekend go to's. One word of warning – this gloss-tinted lip balm-lip liner-lipstick/stain is a great multi purpose pencil in an easy to apply shape, but make sure you exfoliate your lips before application because the pastely pigments will reveal every tiny bit of dry skin!
Have you tried the Show Stopper Gloss? How do you feel about it?!
