I love nude lipglosses and red lipsticks. I rarely step out of my comfort zone with those colors. Oh, I may wear a pinky nude, or a coral nude lipgloss. But you will never see me in a purple or loud color. It’s just not me. I don’t even wear red lipgloss. Until now.
I was sent one of SheaMoisture’s new Lip Glosses to review and low and behold, it was a beautiful red. I threw my prejudices to the wind and put that baby on. And I love it. Not to mention all the compliments I received on it as well.

My first reaction was to the beautiful packaging with the SheaMoisture Lipgloss. “Wood” tube with a clear insert for viewing the color of the gloss. How many times have you purchased a lip color without being able to see it and when you opened it were totally disappointed? Well, you don’t have to worry about that with this smart, pretty packaging. One dip is all you need—and I have full lips!
A generous amount of gloss comes out of the tube on a wand with a brush. Love that. No having to dip in and out of the gloss a gazillion times to get enough product. The brush wand makes application precise and seamless.
The color is the same on your lips as it is in the tube — true color. SheaMoisture Lip Gloss feels amazing and looks amazing too. Sheer with medium color. And the big plus is that this lip gloss is just tacky enough! Not so sticky that your hair sticks in it, but tacky enough so that it lasts awhile. You know that’s a hard one with lipgloss!
