I am a lip gloss junkie. My willpower sinks when I come across those pretty little tubes of sultry berry, cool coral and bashful pink, each so tempting that I usually can't walk away without taking at least one home.
I already own more lip glosses than I care to admit; still, I bought two more tubes last week. If I counted all the lip gloss I own (and I won't, because some might think I am in need of an intervention), it would number in the dozens. That's plural. I'm not loyal to any one brand, either. Drugstore brands such as Neutrogena and L'Oreal share space on my vanity with NARS and Bobbi Brown. Current faves are MAC, Clinique and Bare Escentuals Buxom. Next month, I'll probably be reaching for something else. This thirst for glossy lips creates several problems. I rarely use up a lip gloss, so I keep adding rather than throwing away. For the first time in a long time, I recently tossed two empty tubes. I practically sucked out all the color.
