So about a month ago I was running late (what else is new?) and realized I left my cosmetic bag at home halfway to my appointment. Now, for those of you who don't know me…I can't live without gloss and/or lipstick on my lips 24/7. I stash it everywhere around the house, but this time I had none in my bag and as I said, my makeup bag was on my dresser.
Thankfully I was a few minutes early (imagine that) and luckily there was a Bath & Body Works a few doors down from where I needed to be. So I took a little detour.
I headed straight for the checkout counter which I have learned is where one can usually find lip glosses and travel size testers of products at most beauty stores. I immediately spotted C.O. Bigelow® Mentha Lip Tint in Violet Mint which looked pretty close to my usual lip color and the best part? It was on sale for $5! I slapped down my 5 spot and left the store relieved.
Can I just tell you how much I love this little tube of heaven? For one, it has the slightest touch of color (you can try others if Violet Mint doesn't work for you…there are 6 shades in all). Two, the texture is perfect! It's not too sticky. Three, and this is the best part, the mint flavor is divine and tingles just slightly. Added bonus? If you are trying to watch your diet, this gloss kills your appetite. Who wants to eat when all they smell is mint? Fabulous! I don't think they intended to market this gloss as an appetite suppressant, but hey, why not? It beats pouring water on your plate.
I had forgotten about my new fave find until I was out to dinner last Saturday night and saw a woman show her tinted tube of C.O. Bigelow® Mentha Lip Tint to a friend and swear I overheard her say the same thing…which reminded me to write about it!
