I have been going back and forth on the new Maybelline Lip Gloss Palette since I first saw it weeks ago. I didn't buy it the first two times I crossed it's path, mainly because of this. How messy must gloss be in palette form? If it's not too thick, then it can't have much color. It seems like a good waste of $12, not to mention a gooey mess, which is why I didn't grab it from the get go.

After another week of just staring at it, I opted to wear the fourth pink from the left, the bright one, to a big lunch meeting. When I had swatched this earlier in the morning, the swatches were pale. (Which is probably why I reached for the bright one, first.) However, upon actual lip application, the color was stunning. Like a lip jelly, with more staying power and pigment. Or maybe it's more like a lip lacquer with a touch of jelly?
|Me, at the very end of the day, like midnight. I reapplied the lipstick, but nothing else.|
I haven't seen this in stores since. If you see it, grab it for around $12.
