Shortly I’ll be off to my local counter to browse the newly released Double Dazzle collection. A lot of hype surrounds these reflective goodies, but I must say that as an owner of four (Pleasure Principle, Miss. Dynamite, Get Rich Quick & Date Night), I do enjoy them in moderation. Moderation seems to be a contradiction to the ultimate in glitter for your lips, but that’s how they work best for me. All I can manage is a thin layer, or I get the dreaded white ring of death.. which is never, ever cute.
So while the collector in me, would love nothing more than a full collection to use as a decorative flair.. I won’t be going crazy, with these new colours. In fact, I’ll be taking my four with me.. to swatch in comparison to the new colours. Lately, I’ve been focused on finding colours that are different to what I already have.. and since these glosses are mostly glitter, I think that quite a few are too similar to justify buying more than one in a particular colour family.
When I was in the other day, I was lucky enough to get to look at them before they went on sale.. and came up with a list of colours I’m interested in, which should help bring down the excitement and in turn the dreaded impulse buy. I’ll be looking at: Love Alert, Smile, Utterly Posh, Moth to Flame, Funtabulous, Money Honey and the legendary Baby Sparks. There are also a few others, but I think that these will be my main focus, which hopefully I can pare down with my currents in tow.
I’ll be back later with photos, when I can find my camera charger..
