I don’t know about y’all, but up until a day ago I was experiencing some serious holiday withdrawal. I missed lavishly decorated Christmas trees and the twinkle of holiday lights. And I especially missed the decadent gold boxes of Godiva chocolates the hubs kept coming for my December birthday, wedding anniversary and Christmas.
January just seemed so cold and bland.
Fortunately, the solution to my post-holiday blahs was inside my local Sephora.
I crossed the threshold, and it didn’t take long for the bounce to return to my dragging footsteps. Mascara. Lipstick. Blush. Perfume. Honestly, who can be sad around all of those goodies!?!?
With my budget still feeling the strain of holiday splurges, I had to find a single item (yep, just one) that would keep me smiling beyond Sephora’s magical doors.
My choice? Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss Reflect lipgloss. I opted for Lurex Plum, which comes off as a soft, shimmery mauve on my lips.
Note I said shimmer, not sparkle. Being fortysomething, I’m wary of lipsticks and glosses with chunks of glitter that settle into the fine lines of aging lips and look awful as the color wears off.
Great shine. Good color payoff.
This impulse purchase has made its way to the front of my lip gloss rotation and just might overtake my precious Bobbi Brown Ruby Shimmer as my YLBB favorite!
