Wearing the Troy Surratt for Juicy Couture Lip Tin in Strawberry
To dip or not to dip — that is the question. Whether ’tis nobler on the lips to suffer the slings and arrows of bacterial infection, or to take arms against a tin that contains the tastiest glosses I’ve worn in a really long time…
Even though I’d prefer tubes to a tin, my taste buds are like, “We don’t care!” The new glosses in the Juicy Couture Troy Surratt Lip Gloss Set, a collaboration between Juicy Couture and celebrity makeup artist Troy Surratt (whose resume reads like my iTunes workout playlist, and includes the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Mary J. Blige, Fergie and Janet Jackson), smell and taste just like my movie theater Achilles’ heel…
Yup, gummy bears. The white, red and purple ones, as a matter o’ fact.
The lightly tinted, non-sticky glosses go by the names, Vanilla Shake, Strawberry and Raspberry, and all three feel more like hydrating lip balms than straight glosses to me, which I like.

They aren’t the longest lasting lippies in the world, but that’s not a huge surprise for a balm. I’d say they last about an hour or two on my lips.
Pricey? Most definitely, yes. But they taste like gummy bears!!!
