A phrase like that could mean a few different things. It could refer to the billboard down the street from my brother’s apartment in SF that reads, “Touch Our Junk.”
(I’m pretty sure it doesn’t mean junk of the discarded/reused/recycled variety.)
It could also refer to eminently wearable nude glosses — the kind you’ll happily wear over and over.
I nude gloss…
This time of year, I love it even more than usual because it’s just swipe and go. You can’t get much lower maintenance than that.
If your boo comes home from work early one random afternoon and says, “Eff this workaday crap, babe! Let’s go be beach bums in Hawaii,” nude glosses are good for times like that… Matte red lips just don’t go with that scenario.
Christina Aguilera could probably pull off matte red lips, a retro tankini and water wings, but me? Not so much. I’d look like the main event in an underwater circus.
Yet another of the many benefits of nude glosses…
A few days ago while rifling through my bag for the chocolate I keep stashed “for emergencies” (don’t front, I you know you do this too), the only nude glosses in my purse were the new Cremesheen Glasses ($20 each) from MAC All About Orange.
In less than a week, they muscled my regular rat pack of beige and pink glosses out of the way.
If you’ve ever worn coral and/or peach glosses and thought, “Ooh! That’s cute,” I bet you’ll also like these.
Double Happiness is the lightest, most distinctive and probably the nudest of the three. Imperial Light and Rising Sun are darker, but for some reason look very much alike on my pigmented lips.
Doesn’t take anything away from them, though. I think they’re still juicy and delicious.
As for wear time, if I slick one of these on after my morning coffee, I have to reapply well before lunch, but that’s not a big deal. They feel straight-up awesome on my lips — moisturizing, non-sticky, smooth, and they have MAC’s signature vanilla flavor and scent.
That’s some kick-@ss comfort right there.
