G’morning and happy Wednesday, cutie. We’re almost over the hump! If you’re in the mood for a mid-week drugstore splurge/reward, what do ya think of Sonia Kashuk’s new Beautiful Berries Lip Quad ($12.99)? It’s one of three in SK’s new spring collection, and it looks like a perfect pick-me-up to me.
The pigmented colors and sleek packaging first caught my eye — so cute, right? — but the interesting ingredients sealed the deal. Sonia added myrrh resin extract to supposedly reduce the signs of aging and the depth of wrinkles, and antioxidant-rich pomegranate fruit sterols to moisturize and protect against environmental damage (the juice has been shown to be good for the heart, so there may actually be some real benefits to its use here).
The quad comes with two unscented, unflavored lipsticks and two glosses. I was surprised not to find a flavor or scent, considering the berry theme, but I figure Sonia felt it was better to be safe than sorry about adding an artificial scent. The non-drying lipsticks, which last about three hours on my lips, feel soft, creamy and non-sticky. The glosses last just about an hour.
