My lipgloss be poppin’ … sorry, I had to do it to break the blogging “ice.” I was stuck on an opening line, and it’s the best I could think of. Shameful, I know.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, I’d like to focus on the real point of this post – Smashbox Summer 2012 Shades of Fame Collection Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss Set. The lip gloss set retails for $29 and contains 5 shades ranging from fuchsia to pearlescent shine.

I’m normally just a chapstick gal, as I get antsy with glosses/lipsticks and smudge them off with my hand. I fear that if I don’t do it, they’ll smudge on their own without me noticing and I’ll look like some sort of druggie. A bit extreme, I’m aware. However, I’m proud to announce that I’ve added each and every one of these travel size glosses to my purse makeup bag. I’ve even been wearing them on days when I feel particularly frisky!

Here is me in Hibiscus, my favorite color:

And Candy, my second favorite:

The glosses are thick without being tacky and give an all-over color and shine without being overbearing. And while I still prefer to go with bare lips or sport only chapstick most of the time, I’m on the verge of becoming a lip gloss addict. Trust me, if I can wear these glosses without having a freakout – they’re good!

I would absolutely recommend these glosses to anyone, regardless of their lip-product expertise/savvy. Go forth and purchase, my beautiful readers!

What have your experiences with Smashbox products been like? Have you used these glosses yet?
