Since I've been buying myself some new makeup I thought it time to get rid of some old. Again. I cleaned out pretty hard when we moved back in January. But some pieces made it to the new place and I still haven't used them.

This is a gloss you never see used or ever hear mentioned anywhere. And for good reason.
The packaging is a plastic cylindrical tube. Your standard lipgloss container. It has a screw cap with the bog standard doefoot applicator. The scent of it reminds me of one of those candy stores they have in old buildings.
The shade I've got is 110 Keep A Secret. The shade itself is really pretty. It's a light dusty pink kinda color with blue, siver and golden microglitters in it.When there's still the pink under it looks really subtle but when that wears off and it's just glitter, you look like a discoball. Something about it is really 90's. Except that it isn't sticky in any way. It's really hard to get any product out of the tube. I get the feeling the formula rather sticks to itself rather than cling to the applicator. This particular shade doesn't have that much of colorpayoff and it wares off almost immediately as well. If you're really young or like to top it off every 15 minutes, this is perfect for you. But if you want something that is low maintenance I would skip this. I bet Rimmel does better lipglosses than this.

The packaging is a metal pink can with a nozzle which looks like that of a hairmousse can. The formula is light whipped mousse and it smells a bit of water/honeymelon. It doesn't smell anything like fake tan or suncream. It smells and looks delicious. It took all my will to not taste it.
It says on the can that it's a 1 hour tan mousse. On the back it says to moisturize and exfoliate and all that jazz really well beforehand. Which comes as no surprise. I've done that mistake before. And it says to leave it on for one hour for a light glow, 2 hours for a medium tan and 3 hours for a deep color. Rinse off with just water, no soap. Which was a good thing in my case, because I might've used soap.
I moisturized with a borrowed The Bodyshops satsuma bodybutter. I don't get the hype round this product. It smells weird and nothing like satsumas! Yuck!! I let that sink in for a minute or two, being the eager one. Then I used the mitt that you can buy with it and spritzed out some mousse. It was the weirdest thing ever seeing eatable stuff coming out of a nozzle and on I went. You can easily see where you've put it on or not. I noticed i had to put it on in even strokes and go over some areas again where I'd been a little too eager. I then let it sit put for about an hour and a half. The result of my pale Scandinavian legs being slightly more bronzed. Nothing glittery or glowy. Just a bit more color and it looks super natural. Straight off I couldn't really tell if there was a difference or not. But now, the day after I can really and honestly tell you there is a difference. I will use this later on today or tomorrow and let it sit for two hours and see what happens. I also noticed that crossing my legs with this on was a bad idea, it rubbed off on the back of my other leg. So one leg is slightly paler than the other. Staying of furniture and wear something that you don't care too much for might be a good idea.

I had a perfect schedule panned out and then this happened. I've been m.i.a for over a week now. Well, life happened. I am truly sorry if you miss action in this little space of cyberspace.
Fun fact, I somehow managed to get some of those pescy boilingbubbles in an Essie polish. How? I was in a hurry and just slapped a thick coat on. Lesson learned. I can screw up anything! Otherwise Essie polishes are foolproof and gorgeous!
How's life been treating? Have this heatvawe hit you too?
