Perhaps you survived Monday without losing any teeth; maybe you made it out of the door this morning wearing two matching shoes, or you managed to avoid flashing anyone in the grocery store — no matter how small the accomplishment, I believe with the utmost conviction that a tube of pretty pink lipgloss always, ALWAYS makes a fine reward.
Allow me to introduce Illamasqua Sheer Lipgloss in Electrify ($19).
One of 10 colors in the company’s permanent line, Electrify kisses lips with just a hint of cool baby pink color.
Unlike some sheer glosses that shall remain nameless (ahem, Benefit Lipgloss!), it doesn’t disappear in a flash. It’s sheer, but not so sheer that it’s invisible. As for the shine? Oh, the shine… Mr. Clean wishes his bald head was HALF as shiny as Electrify.
I’d love to shine a light on Illamasqua and ask them to reduce the price a few dollars ($19 is a little spendy), but it feels like a great deal. You get a texture that doesn’t stick, wonderful wear time for a non-sticky gloss (about four hours), and you don’t get any funky-a*# flavor or scent.
The smoochable pink stain Electrify leaves on my lips after the bulk of the color disappears is like a gift that keeps on giving.
I think it’s SO PRETTY!
When I did some surfing to see what others have said about it, I noticed a couple complaints that called it drying. I didn’t feel that way about , but if it’s a problem a moisturizing balm applied before bedtime should help (Clinique makes one I really like called Super Balm).
Pink lipgloss? Small victories? I say go for it. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A

Congrats, class of 2010!
Graduations are one of my favorite rites of passage, and I thought the one I went to on Sunday for my bro’s girlfriend was really inspiring, and hella entertaining, too. There were a series of cultural performances put on by the Filipino-American student union on campus, and I left the gym feeling energized and happy.

To everyone who walked across the stage this year, a big congrats to you. Count me in as someone who’s proud of what you’ve accomplished. Way to go!
