I purchased Gloss Bomb back in March in New York and promptly lost it. Every time I reached in my purse, I was disappointed to remember it was gone. I was so mad at myself, I didn’t repurchase until I spotted it in Kansas City in June. I had missed it so much that I bought a replacement for myself and one for my friend who was celebrating her birthday because I knew she’d love it as much as I did.
There isn’t one quality alone that is so good about this gloss, but its full effect together. It has a brilliant shine over a universal rose shade that adds just a hint of color. The formula hydrates with shea butter. The finish isn’t sticky but also doesn’t end up everywhere – I can’t stand it when gloss comes off on glasses and cups. And the vanilla scent is subtle enough to be sophisticated while still making me nostalgic for Vanilla Lip Smackers.
