Recently, I was in the Victoria's Secret store and, on my way to the checkout counter, I spotted a display of these .46 oz. tubes of lip gloss. Normally $7.00 each, they were on sale for 2 for $12.00. Like most everything in the store, this still seemed overpriced to me, but I love lip gloss, and I was feeling impulsive, so I picked up a couple of tubes. I chose Strawberry Fizz and I Want Candy - I thought the colors would look nice with my skin tone. In the tube, the Strawberry Fizz appears to be sort of glittery, but they both look pretty much the same on my lips. (Even the colors look about the same, once they have been applied). These lip glosses both smell and taste fantastic (the Strawberry Fizz is my favorite). They provide just the right amount of shine with a hint of color, and they are long lasting. However, they are kind of STICKY, which I do not love. I also do not like the long list of chemical ingredients, including dyes and BHT. They do contain 'flavor (aroma)'. Mineral oil appears to be the only decent ingredient listed. These are not going to become a "must-have" item for me.
