When I get bored, I shop (as you can tell, it seems I am bored all the time lol!). I find myself in search of a new lipgloss that isn't MAC and before you know it, I am cruising down the No.7 and Botanics aisle at Target. I am swatching like a madman, and lo and behold I found a nice nude, subtle brownish-pink lipgloss I subconsciously was looking for!
I bought Botanics Lipgloss in "Star Anise". I am absolutely in love with this color! It looks dark in the tube and on your hand, but it's not at all, it's a gorgeous nude color perfect for every look. It's a tube lipgloss with a sponged wand.
What I loved about it: The awesome perfect color AND it was very moisturizing and it actually stayed on a lot longer than some of my other lipglosses. It also has really subtle shimmer which I like because it makes it perfect for work. I hate lipglosses with huge chunks of glitter and you end up looking like you ate a chicken leg full of grease, but with this lippie it's the perfect amount of shimmer.
What I hated about it: The SMELL and TASTE! Seriously, it is just an awful smell and taste, it's like a cross between rotten fruit and armpit. No joke! I am assuming because it's purely organic and is made from plants such as Ginko Biloba and Coconut Extract that it smells and tastes the way it does. I was this close to returning it but I just love the color so much! I think I am just going to buy some scented oil and add a drop of it because I really can't stand it, or maybe after awhile I will get used to it...whichever comes first!
Overall: I really like this lipgloss minus the smell and taste, it feels so nice on my lips.
Would I buy it again? Definitely, the color is awesome.
This was taken with flash an this is how it looks like in person, a nude pinkish brown.
