Shall We Begin? LOTD 1-01-10

Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Primal (purchased for $28)

My lips have been super crazy dry here since we've had a cold stretch for over a week now. I pulled out a gloss that I've had for a while and often reach for when my lips are asking for some moisture. This gloss is almost like putting actual butter on your lips- it's quite luxurious and feels fabulous.

As with most glosses, however, the color payoff is just not there and it doesn't last long. On the positive side, when it wears off you are left with lips that are back to normal and no longer dry. Pretty amazing for one application.

Would I buy it again? Nope, not likely. It's very pricey and the color wasn't what I expected. I am a berry girl, and this leans more red than berry- which is different that what Sephora's swatch shows.

Hopefully I'll come up with some sort of a rating system to use for my Lip of the Day posts. I am thinking rating based on color, formula, wear, smell/taste, price, and would I buy again. Other ideas?

I probably wouldn't buy it either if it doesn't last.
