So when I asked you guys on twitter/facebook if you’d be interested in seeing some old school posts about makeup I used back in the day, you seemed genuinely interested. Good thing, because I’m a hoarder. You know on tv when they tell people “You need to get rid of this. I know it is a good memory but you have to let it go” or something like that? Well I held onto quite a few makeup products from back in the day & I’m excited to show you how I used them, what they looked like, & all that jazz. If you’re not interested in see my old makeup (as hip, & cool, & with it as I was back then) then feel free to check out any of my other hundreds of posts. I’ll be featuring products every Thursday for awhile so sit back & enjoy!
Are you guys ready for another Throwback Thursday post? I sure hope because today we’re talking about something I’d run out & buy right this minute if they were still being sold in stores! L’Oreal released a line of glosses called Glass Shine High Shine Lip Gloss that were unlike anything else. I’m so bummed I only own one shade but it has been well loved.
Because this comes in a metal tube (much like a hand cream or actual oil paint) it isn’t all that pretty to photograph. Sorry about that. It also wasn’t mess free. I know for a fact I got some on multiple outfits back in the day. Didn’t care, still loved it. I think this came out in 2002/2003 which means I was right at the beginning of high school.
The scent brings back tons of memories. I checked out online & saw a lot of people wither loved or hated it. It is definitely a floral with a slightly fruity scent that you really smell. I personally like scented products over non-scented & ended up really liking the smell. As soon as I opened the tube I was transported back to the times I used it in the girl’s bathroom.
This is a clear gloss with lots of pink shimmer. It really pops over another shade but I also wore it alone. I really did like the scent a lot.
Left to right we have L’Oreal Glass Shine High Shine Lip Gloss in Pink Iridescence alone & then over Maybelline Color Sensational Pink Petal, Revlon Cherries in the Snow, & Wet n Wild Ferguson Crest.
This isn’t the easiest thing in the world to apply & the packaging isn’t great. Like most oil paints (just in case you aren’t familiar) it oozes out a bit as soon as you remove the cap. I think because I painted this didn’t bother me as much but it can be messy. It is best applied with a lip brush or a fingertip if you don’t mind getting lipstick on it.
I don’t know why I liked this so much but it did last more than my cheapie glosses back then & was shiny. & had pink opal like sparkles. Okay, I guess I do know why I liked it so much! Have you tried any of these glosses? I really wish I had bought some other shades!
