Finally, the day just came and it's this week that I decided to run a week-long event of my favorite lip products. When I said "week-long", I mean week days only because we really need the weekends to recharge. Again, I do want makeup overdose here. Before I go any further, I just want to say none of my favorite lip stuff is more than $20 USD. So if you're wishing to see any Chanel or Yves Saint Laurent or Lancome, I'm sorry there will be none of those. However, the ones I write about are really good quality and worth to be mentioned.
Are we ready? Let's start with day 1 and favorite lip product #1: Sally Hansen Line Smoothing Mineral Lip Treatment
I said it before and I'm saying it again: Sally Hansen beauty products are the most understated products at the drugstore! Before I wrote this review, I searched around to see what the world's reaction to this product is and sadly I did not get a lot of information. And I'm wondering what happened because this mineral lip treatment is the best lip product I've ever tried from Sally Hansen.
I got 2 colors that were buy 1 get 1 free: Rose Quartz is the permanent color and Limited Edition shade #1 is their LE color. Jeeze, everyone and their pets make LEs these days! At first, the golden cap really reminds me of Estee Lauder lipstick case and I was hoping for the brush applicator per Diamond Lip Treatment. Although this is a gloss, Sally Hansen folks really love to use the term "lip treatment" in their glosses.
So what's so special about this gloss? According to Sally Hansen, this is the "first ever mineral based lip treatment that replenishes distressed lips" using retinol, tourmaline, and vitamins. Retinol is the ingredient that's proven to reduce wrinkle so there's actually hope in this gloss. Also, I find Sally Hansen glosses to be more moisturizing and less sticky than MAC lip glasses. So if you don't like the stickiness of lip glasses, this one is for you. Also, it is minty fresh, which is suitable to tote around just in case of special occasion happens.
The lip treatments have doe-foot applicators instead of brush applicators
