Is it just me or is there another “revolutionary” new makeup product introduced every freaking day?! Just walking into Ulta or Sephora (or even Walgreens!) sends many chicas into fits of hysteria, reaching for the nearest brown bag to regulate their breathing. It’s all so overwhelming.
So how can you know which product – among the sea of thousands – is the best? Which does what you need it to do? Which ones are worth the extra money? Let me help. I don’t know every beauty product out there, but I’ve tested a lot of them and I’ll let you know which are worth the money and which are not.

What it is: Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Flirt and Sex Pot
Why this should be in your bag: Lip gloss is an everyday necessity for most girls. It polishes off your look and really pulls everything together. Added bonuses found in some glosses these days are plumpers, which amplify your natural lips, and mint flavorings to give you fresher breath. Too Faced Glamour Gloss happens to be one of these plumping glosses, but it also imparts a cooling tingle and mint flavor that, when applied, lasts for a good while. I tested out Flirt, described as “pinky mocha” and Sex Pot, a “sheer lilac.” In the tube, Flirt and Sex Pot look very dark and intimidating, but they apply surprisingly sheer.

How to use it: Apply your regular makeup, right down to bronzer and finishing powder before applying lipgloss. If you plan on wearing a stain or lipstick to intensify the color, apply that first. Using the wand applicator (it picks up more product than the doe-foot applicator, so be aware!), swipe on Too Faced Glamour Gloss. I find it only takes one or two swipes to get full-coverage. The cooling, plumping sensation will set in almost immediately! Enjoy it, then re-apply throughout the day as needed, especially if your breath needs some assistance.

CC Rating: A
Too Faced Glamour Gloss is a good lipgloss and the added plumping power and mint definitely up the ante. The color-range is pretty impressive and there is a good variety of shimmery and opaque shades. I felt like my lips were plumped, but the cooling sensation was much more comfortable than other plumping glosses I’ve tried. The minty scent was a nice touch too! I loved the packaging of these, especially the giant jewel on the top of the lid, along with the wand applicator. My only complaint would be that it is a bit sticky, which may turn some users off. If you’re a fan of MAC Lip Glass, the texture is very similar, so you would probably really enjoy Too Faced Glamour Glosses.
