It is extremely hard to find gloss with no parabens in it, or even brands that care to divulge their ingredients.
And I think it's totally f**ked up that they don't. Ingredients are on my lotion, my food, my conditioner, etc. What makes my face so different? And ladies, why are we using products by companies that want to keep secrets from you? Ugh, don't get me started.
Anyway, in the lipgloss arena, NYX provides. I'm probably going to go to Ulta and haul, or slowly start replenishing my collection with them. I think some of their glosses are a bit oversexualized, but that's all in good fun. They've got pots, tubes,...pocket rockets. And a good selection of colors. I prefer glosses that look like jelly, with no shimmer, although that's not always true.
NYX is also making me consider their Glitterati palette. The first time I saw it I was like "Ugh wtf is THAT'...but you know? The looks you can get with it pack a punch, and I'm in to that on my eyes. HowEVER the palette is cremes, and apparently they haven't figured out how to put the preservative from their lipgloss into that, because it has parabens. I'm not so hot on that.
Anyway, CherryCulture is having a 25% off sale on NYX, an already affordable brand. Do check it out!
I probably won't participate...I dunno, maybe. But they have a huge display in my Ulta.
In other news, we're getting a camera soon! Which is good because I have a few new polishes...
