I picked up one of the new Salma Hayek Lip Gloss colors at the drugstore last week. I got the glittery/shimmery color Strawberry. I have to say when they put Ultra Shine in the name of this gloss they were not kidding. This color really sparkles on the lips! The shimmer isn’t gritty or uncomfortable on my lips which is a huge plus. I hate gritty gloss. The gloss is a little sticky and tacky to me though unfortunately. That’s the only reason it’s not a must have for me. It’s like a Mac gloss, a bit too sticky but such a gorgeous color. I’m not sure I’d get another one but I really like this one. I think it would look great over a few lipsticks that I have.
The gloss is moisturizing and has a pleasant smell to it. It’s not too overpowering. The taste is interesting, its got a slight taste to it that is kind of good. I say that because it’s not like they went overboard trying to make it taste good it just does. The ingredients include mimosa extract, and mango oil. There are several good vitamins in the mix like A, C, & E. The formula is hypoallergenic, paraben free, and not tested on animals so overall it’s a good for you lip gloss! It retails for about $8 at CVS.
Disclosure: I purchased this item myself!
