The topic of finding a sticky, clear gloss came up the other day when a reader wanted to know if I had found one to use to stick glitter to my eyes.
I had found one (Miss Sporty) but only just.
It occurred to me then….some things should exist but are might hard to locate….
For example, here are 3 things I was looking for recently -
1. A clear, non scented, non plumping, sticky gloss.
Because nearly all the companies have bought into the lip plumping nonsense, and because non-sticky is supposed to be the desirable lip gloss texture.
Found: Miss Sporty Clear Gloss
2. A foundation with no SPF
Yes, these DO exist but its still hard to find one because most women want sun protection in their foundation. I was looking for one for a specific upcoming tutorial (and you know I like my high end foundations…its easier to find a SPF free cheapo base). Its amazing how hard it can be finding one. Some people are allergic to SPF so it should be an option.
Found: Good selection from Clinique
3. The perfect beige liner for the inner eye
Buttery from MAC is ideal (discontinued), there’s one I like from Illamasqua (I forget the name) and Shu Uemura beige lip pencil works but both are matte. I’d prefer a bit of shimmer.
Everywhere I looked, the pencils were white or silver.
Found: In the end I settled for Champagne Aqua Eyes pencil from MUFE but if it had a tad more beige it would be ideal. (Review coming up – I am not a fan of this pencil at all)
So Tell Me….
Is there anything you are trying to ‘find’ but struggle with?
