Bright aaaand SHINY!

July 24, 2010

I have a sickness. I know others (specifically my dear friend Shuttlecock) suffer from the same sickness.

I love sparkles.  LOVE.

Seriously…LOVE!!

Not just on shoes…..

Shuttle and I were browsing in Sephora (at Block 37, in case anyone wants to visit us in our native habitat) when we came across the Dior shelf. And I saw these:

I wish I could animate sparkles. Imagine a disco ball with a thousand lights on it. Multiply that by a hundred and you’re maybe halfway to how amazingly sparkly this lip gloss is.

It’s Dior Addict (appropriate, right?) Ultra Gloss. I fell instantly and irreversibly in love with the Outrageous Fuchsia color.

It’s the top color. Isn’t it great? I HAD to have it…even though I have enough lipgloss to cover the puckers of every girl in the 48 continental United States for the rest of all of our lives, I knew that my life would not be complete without Dior Ultragloss in Outrageous Fuchsia.

These swatch doesn’t even come close to showing how sparkly it really is.

I had it in my hand, ready for checkout, and I happened to look at the price.

$26.50.

I have bought shoes for less. I sadly, and with as much drama as the drama queen in me could produce, put it back.

Then I ate a sizeable container of Starfruit.

About a week later, Shuttlecock, my sister Suze, and I were at dinner and Shuttles was rummaging through her gargantuan purse. Suddenly, she shoved something at me. I didn’t understand why she was pushing me, so I prepared to shove back. Then I looked down and saw:

I was a little thrilled, to say the least. And I LOOOVE it. It’s great gloss, not stick, and sparkly enough to look fancy, but not so much that I look like a Russian prostitute. I fully recommend it!

Also, I want these Brian Atwood heels to match:

I don’t think they’re still available in stores, but I thought I’d just put it out there in case someone has an unloved pair (in size 9) they’d be willing to let me adopt.

Back to the gloss: It’s available all over the place, but Sephora is where Shuttles got it for me.

    I did not SHOVE it at you. I laid it discreetly on your purse because I did not bring presents for everyone! LOL You are very dramatic, Shuttlesworth.

      LOL- you’re so polite! 🙂
      Cher was the one that went NUTS when she saw it…

    Ooh, ooh! I just ordered two limited edition MAC lippies that are glittery and sparkly, and I am a total gloss addict. Will you let me know what you think of the Dior gloss once you spend a little time in it? Thanks!

      Oh, I LOVE the Dior gloss. I’ve had it for a week now, and I want it in every color. It’s gives really good coverage for a gloss and it’s not sticky and doesn’t taste funny like other glosses. even without any other make up on, it makes me feel like I’m dressed up. I L-O-V-E it and can’t recommend it enough. Completely worth the price, you’ll never need another gloss again (although does that stop us from continually purchasing more gloss than we’ll ever need?)

    I am very much in love with them too.
    They made my lips look so 3 dimensional and shinny BUT not sticky at all!
    Amazing.
