I gloss collagewas in the hospital recently.  Of course, you  may know from experience that it is never fun. Hospitals are cold and the lighting is so bleh.  I ended up there and in such pain that I was on morphine through an IV. Once the pain started to calm down, mostly in part due to the medication, I decided that my lips were hurting.   It felt more like burning really. And what cures a sad sore lip better than my trusty friend, lip gloss?

I knew I had at least 5 of them lurking around in my purse, if only I could just get to it.  No luck.  I would have to enlist the help of my husband.   He did not want to indulge me in this request which resulted in my yelling down the hall to a nurse to demand that he give it to me.  (Indulge me in my recounting of this story as I was on morphine at the time).  When she said it would be fine, I thrust my hand at Bobby to get it from my purse. To the rescue: a Yankee Candle Black Cherry Lip Balm.  I held on to it all night through an MRI, an ultra-sound, and even when I thought the lights in my room looked like stars.

Sephora Gloss WandOk, new everyday favorite. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new lip gloss wand from Sephora.  6 mini pots of gloss.  Sparkly and natural colors.  Yummy mango flavor.  Um, hello heaven.  Have we met?   It’s also a life saver for me when going to Bobby’s shows because I’ve got everything I need for a work day and then to zip over to a show all on one wand.

Thank you France.  Aside from croissants and Degas, you gave us lip gloss paradise with a giant silver ‘S’.  BTW, did you know they are owned by Louis Vuitton?

Cherry ChristmasLast up, I received Philosophy’s Cherry Christmas lip gloss as a gift this year, and I adore it.  Of course, cherry+lip gloss= happy me.  The cherry flavor has the prefect sweetness balanced with just the right amount of tang and sour notes.  There is a slightly spicy finish which does make it a perfect holiday cherry fragrance.  But I’m going to keep it around as my little reminder to keep the holiday spirit year round.

On to the next one.
