A few weeks ago, I obsessed over finding the perfect lip gloss. I was tired of how lipsticks dry my lips and how unpleasant some brands taste. I checked out practically every single make up store to find the perfect lipgloss but apparently, finding that one that best suits you is like finding a life partner: the search is hard!

But like love stories, as long as you keep trying, you will eventually find the right one-- and boy did I find my perfect match:

Smashbox Limitless Lip Stain & Color Seal Balm in Sangria (PhP1,150.00)
I went to the Beauty Bar to buy O-gloss because I thought "okay, fine, I'll settle for lip plumper-slash-gloss instead" but instead of getting O-gloss, I discovered Smashbox' Limitless Lip Stain & Color Seal Balm. I tell you, the first swipe was remarkable! It was truly like finding the right guy for you-- it just felt right. 

The gloss has two sides. You apply the lip stain first before topping it with balm. I like the consistency of the lip stain because it's not too "watery" like other lip stains. Also, it doesn't run and because it has thick tip, you can line your lips easily with it just like usual lip liners.

 After putting the lip stain, you top it off with lip balm. Voila! Perfect lips! Yehey! (haha)

The best part about it is even if the color looks so striking at first, it doesn't feel thick at all. You'd even forget you're wearing lipgloss co'z it feels so natural. Also, don't be alarmed at the color, it gradually lightens into a natural reddish tint after a while :)

If you follow me on twitter, you'd probably seen me tweet about getting the wrong shade of lipgloss. Well, that's true. Even if I am in love with Smashbox' lipgloss, I actually got the wrong shade. I'm wearing Sangria in the pictures but the color I first fell in love with is Guava. That was the was the color I tried on at the store but for some reason the word "sangria" stuck to me so I bought the wrong one. Tsk! With that said, I am looking forward to finishing off this tube and getting myself a new one SOON!

 Still, hooray for the beautiful color!
 I'm ready for my kiss now :P
