Gloss Fixes

April 22, 2010

Glosses are wonderful, and can be irritatingly easy to collect, I should know.  But isn’t it terrible when you find a perfect gloss, but it’s too drying, sticky, or doesn’t last long enough?  Although the thrill of the hunt for that holy grail gloss can be fun, you can still make use of what you’ve got now.  The trick is to take part in some gloss mixing.

Gloss mixing allows you to stretch out your favourite glosses, lengthen the wear on those short wearing glosses, and allieviate some of that stickiness in those uber sticky glosses.  You can mix your glosses carefully several ways, particularly if you’re concerned about cross contaminating.  You can dab them in seperate globs on your lips, then smooth together when you purse your lips, or you can swipe one layer and then dab and apply the second layer with your finger.  Or any other method you can devise.

One of my favourite combinations right now is pairing Korres Cherry Oil Lipgloss in Naked Beige 30 with MAC Dazzleglass in Rags to Riches.  You get the best of both worlds here, with the long wear of the Dazzleglass and the non-stickiness of the Cherry Oil Lipgloss.  I really love the muted effect of the sparkly Dazzleglass, it extends the wear of the Cherry Oil Lipgloss to up to 8 hours!
