I’m still crushing big time on red lipgloss (sorry, pink), and yesterday I got my fix with Shu Uemura’s Gloss Unlimited in RD 165N ($22).
Hot, yah? The color makes me look like I just ate a whole bag of red Jolly Rancher candies, but I think it even looks brighter in the tube than it does on my lips.
Gloss Unlimited RD 165N has a light orange scent and feels thinner than Clinique’s Cherry Bomb. Despite its consistency, Gloss Unlimited didn’t dry out my lips when I used it on Friday. I had to apply it a few times throughout the day, but because of how moisturizing it is, I didn’t mind.
The sponge applicator deserves mentioning. It’s long compared to MAC and Clinique lipgloss applicators and has a pointed tip, not a slanted one like regular doe foot applicators. The design made gloss a little easier to apply on my lower lip and into corners.
To get this look, I lined the edges of my lips with MAC Subculture lip liner before applying two coats of RD 165N.
And it’s a versatile color, too. A girl can get away with wearing it in many different situations. It’s a natural enough shade to wear during the day but still has enough pizazz to work at night.
What do you think about this shade?

Yay! Aren’t you glad it’s Saturday? This morning I slept in and caught up on some glorious REM sleep! Today’s gonna be a mellow veg day for me, and I’m totally cool with that. If I’m feeling ambitious, I may hit up Trader Joe’s (love you, TJ!), but that’s about all the effort I’m willing to expend. What are your plans for today?
