Along with the crazy March weather we've been having, it's also been ridiculously windy.
Add that to the fact that I also wear gloss on my lips and it's a recipe for sticky disaster. My hair right now is about chin length, which is just long enough to blow around and get caught up in the gloss on my pucker.
I pretty much spend the time pulling hair out of my mouth and/or trying to hide my lips by sucking them in. Kinda weird, but it almost works.
That's what makes this gloss different.
It's not sticky at all, but still delivers that gloss shine that I adore.
The concept behind the product is actually pretty interesting...it's meant to be a lip plumper without the tingly-stinging some find that other plumping glosses have.
So how does it plump?
Each shade has a special ratio of shine to shimmer that works to create the illusion of fuller lips.
The other cool part is the container itself, it totally resembles a test tube...allowing you to look all cool-sexy-scientist when you reapply on the go.
Even the box has been upped in the cool factor scale. All Big Bang Theory - Illusion Gloss package illustrations are based on arts and crafts fabric textures and Copernicus and Nan Goldin photographs from the 80’s. Each one was hand drawn by James Bernard, who designs all of Lipstick Queen’s original package designs.
Plus, the gloss is available in the following eight shades:
Expansion – shimmery pale pink
Space – shimmery grey pink
Infinite – shimmery pinky peach
Black Hole – shimmery deep wine
Creation – shimmery rose
Cosmos – shimmery ruby
Energy – shimmery bright red
Big Bang Theory - Illusion Gloss ($20) is available at all Barneys New York stores, Space NK, Henri Bendel and online at lipstickqueen.com.
