Lipgloss Cleanse

Hiya all!

Long time no blog...It often happens to me in April that I feel like doing something de/reconstructing something, like changing a piece of garden. Or, in this case I had a food-change by going glutenfree. Long story, but it involved lots of delicous cooking so the blog was slightly on the sideline.

So we know our detoxes and cleanses with food etc, and it was about time to cleanse some of my lipgloss-stash from many moons ago.

  • Babypink lipgloss 3

So I basically compiled this list for my readers who had trouble falling asleep ; ). 

But seriously, I still like to discuss a couple of these that I found difficult to let go of.  

 The one from Brazil:

What to do in Rio de Janeiro? I think most people would sit on the beach with their Caipirinha checking out Brazillian bodies in their element. The beauty addicts among us would still like to shop, especially checking out the national brand. The Makeupartists at Contem were such dolls and they picked this gorgeous lipgloss for me. Boohoo, I don't wanna part from this one.

The one for THAT concert:

2010: I was all about Rihanna and her 'Rated R' album (also 'Good Girl Gone Bad'). She came to Holland for a concert and I had to wear my brightest, longlasting colour in Romantic Rose. I picked up my Korean Etude House LUCIDdarling lipstick in Romantic Rose (original review here).

And the fan-club lippies:
These have been from Kanebo Lavshuca line: cute, pretty girly cases and a good quality for its price.

More about the pretty case:

 My Besame lipstick! It had been quite difficult for me to get at the time being so I treasured it, but actually seldom wore it...

I think lots of women out there buy more than a pretty colour: we buy an emotion as well, or it symbolises a kind of feeling we had that day, a particular occasion, or that precious Limited Edition that was so hard to get our hands on. Or, in my case I did some swaps with people from other countries to get a specific gloss.
Also, I used to sample all colours that were either rosy pinks or MLBB (my lips but better). These days I have more variety: not just lipglosses and subtle lipsheers but full on colours like NARS Audacious and other fun hues. 

Discovering my older stash again makes me appreciate the beauty of a subtle accent again! I already bought a couple of new lipsticks from Coffret d'Or & Shiseido Maquillage, because they excel in beautifullly balmy lipsticks with the right amount of easy colour.

So do you agree that 'parting is such a sweet sorrow' for your lipglosses as well?

Haha, I just think parting is sweet after I have them for a few years...I did a dump last fall (a lot of my favorite glosses just went bad during summer)and it kind of give me an excuse to do a fresh start and get a more tailored (maybe not, I just buy whatever that's on sale or has pretty tube) collection...
