Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Afterglow

Smashbox Lip Enhancing glosses come in three different finishes. Sheer Color, True Color and Full Color. The names pretty much speak for themselves. You can read more on the finishes here. I like their shade selection for the fact that the nudes are totally wearable and don't make you look washed out.

Afterglow is a sheer, shimmery cool pink that leans towards the pinkish, nude spectrum of colors. I know, I can never get bored of such shades!

Afterglow is great worn alone or on top of any lipstick. It looks quite sheer while on alone and adds a great dimension to your lips when applied over a lipstick because of the reflective glitter. The gloss is non-sticky and stays on for a good 2-3 hours and also has no wacky flavor or taste. The slim packaging makes it easy to just pop it into your purse and travel with ease.

The only downside would be the price($18). Yep, they are much more expensive than a MAC lipglass, but, the color selection(especially the nudes) is just top notch. I totally love these glosses and would love to try out more when I come across a great deal.
