I think I need a nap.
My butt is dragging. I’ve been getting up an hour early so I can play Arkham City, yeah, I’m a little addicted. What’s your gaming pleasure at the moment? I also have the Sim’s Pets I need to install, gawd another corny expansion pack? Someone save us.
I think a review of the new Benefit Ticket to Glossytown should get me back in gear as I need all the awake time I can get, there simply aren’t enough hours in my day to deal with my office, my life, and my blog. Phew!
Ticket to Glossytown is Benefit’s traditional Holiday Lipgloss Set. It includes six mini glosses in a range of shades for $24. Formula wise the gloss isn’t too thin nor is it too thick so it falls right in the middle of perfect for me. It glides on lips beautifully without applying patchy or dry and has a slick, glossy finish and in some cases you’ll find many of the shades in the set offers full color payoff! I like the formula since it wears comfortably well and long.
It does have a few little quirks that you have to jump over though. You get six glosses here but I only found three of them wearable. This isn’t a bad thing as it’s all about your personal color preferences.
- Lipgloss in So Frisk Me (gilded berry)
- Nudie-Tude (goldspun twist)
- Spiked Punch (vibrant coral)
- Kiss You (clear fuchsia)
- Life On The A List (bubble gum pink)
- Foxy Lady (diamond rose)
My problem was Kiss You wasn’t a shade of purple I could rock and the cream finish on it plus Life on the A List and Spiked Punch wasn’t entirely flattering on me sadly. Which left me with three wearable shades. If you can’t wear shades like these the kit might not be for you. The other shades in the collection I enjoyed but I was down nearly 50% of the set once I weeded through the wearable shades. I do think these shades are kinda difficult to pull off for many in my opinion.
My second beef with the collection is the smaller 0.1 oz size of each gloss. In a sea of Holiday Lipgloss Sets, Ticket to Glossytown can get lost among contenders that have similar price tags and either offer more variety in their sets or bigger sizes.
Benefit Ticket to Glossytown will prove a must have for Benefit girls I’m sure however it does have a few hurdles to jump over to gain the interest of hardcore beauty junkies!
Did you snatch it up?
