Stepping into the shoes of a beauty editor
and reviewing makeup loot for a living has always been a dream of mine.
Since joining the Svelt office, this dream
has become reality- much like many other dreams of mine… feeding tigers anyone?
For my second product review, I test drove
a new lip-gloss by SAX- #37 Peony.
To be honest for the past few years I
haven’t been much of a lip-gloss girl, I usually use a lipstick or stain on my
lips, but I was pleasantly surprised at how great my lips looked after applying
This is a great pale pink shade that added
freshness and glamour to my light daytime make up look. It also compliments the
hot 60’s cat-eye style or smokey eye that I have been rocking at night.
The package mentioned that the gloss had
plumping properties, but I did not feel any tingling or swelling effects that
usually signals that the gloss has plumping power. That said, a slick of this
gloss does make my lips look juicer and fuller.
One of the great things about the packaging
of this product is that the shade of gloss is clearly visible through the
transparent windows, and so is great for digging out of overstuffed bags.
I also loved the sponged application wand that
came with the gloss as it ensured precision application with no sticky fingers!
From this experience I have joined the
gloss gang once again- thanks SAX!
