Are we too old for lipgloss?

    I love lip gloss. On most days, it is the only "make up" I wear. (On fancy days, I add blush and some eyeliner.) My best friend (who is also over 40) gave me a box of shiny lip glosses for Xmas and I was so happy. Wear what you want and tell that salesgirl to kiss your ***!

    I am using something called "Pink Bubbly" from Philosophy (@ Nordstrom's) today but my other favorite is from MaryKate and Ashley b/c it got a surprisingly good review in Cosmo or something (@ Kmart/Walmart?). So - try what you want and don't let price, age, or ignorant salespeople deter you!

    (If I had your address, I would send you a big ole' box of lip glosses right now!):happy7:

    I bought some!

    One is Nectar Nude by Burt's Bees.

    The other is Walk in the Sand Caribbean Shine by mark/Avon. - I like this one the best.

    1) Report that dumbbell. I'm usually quite shy and don't like to make a fuss, but that sales "assistant" doesn't deserve her job.
    2) Find a lipgloss in a color/texture that you like (not MAC) and apply.
    3) Celebrate how gorgeous and youthful you look by eating/drinking something you really enjoy and then reapply lip gloss!

    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    Whoever suggested the Avon gloss was absolutely right. It lasts forever and feels great. I ordered two shades of the Brilliant Shine and I recommend them.
    Poo: KBB shampoo bar or Shikai moisturizing shampoo
    CoWash: VO5 kiwi
    Cond: Robert Craig, Tresemme Natural, or Fekkai Shea Butter
    Leave in/Styling: Grapeseed oil, KBB milk, KCCC, and Aveda Confixor
