[unpaid/affiliate/sample/ad] If you haven’t worn gloss for years because your hair gets caught in it if the wind blows, it’s stickier than sellotape and it slides off, time for a re-think. New formula glosses are such a long way from the glorious gloop of the Bonne Belle years and these newbies from Origins are best in class in being softening, no-tackiness, light-bringers.
Now, as is the way at the moment, stock has yet to make it to the website but I thought I’d flag anyway in case anyone feels like a mid-month treat because I’m sure they’ll be live in the next week or two. (NB: Just found them on Look Fantastic HERE) What’s lovely about them is that they’re quite low pigment but very lightful so you get a hint of colour but a lot of shine which makes lips look smooth and dewy. I quite often find that older women aren’t so keen to try a gloss – I once gave a Bobbi Brown gloss to my friend’s mum and it was a revelation and is now her ‘signature’ look. I think it was a shade called Ballet Pink which doesn’t exist now, but Petal (HERE) is along the right lines if you want a starter gloss. In the Origins range, Bare Petal will have you in the right direction.
There’s a tiny bit of sparkle in some of the shades (there are 10) and the red shade, as you can see, is more pigmented than the other shades that I have here but go lightly and it’s a super-charged wash. So, from bottom to top: Daring Dahlia, Honey Bloom and Scarlet Rose. They’re £18 each and you can sign up for notifications for when stock arrives HERE. Oh, I forgot to mention that the formula contains 12 flower extracts although I’m not sure what benefit that might bring, as well as essential oils (in case you’re averse) and has a little bit of a minty kick. While I was browsing the Origins website, I came across a new Lauder box – Fresh Beginnings – with £79 of product for £28. See below:
While I feel that these have got rather ‘samey’, there are some favourites in there that I’d be really happy to have such as Origins Mega Mushroom Relief & Resilience Treatment Lotion and Clinique Moisture Surge. There’s also a MAC eye shadow in there too which seems a bit different.
