Fictionary is a column showcasing beauty-related words that don’t exist, but should.
A sultry smile in one fell super-sized swoop of gloss. Why shouldn’t you be a size queen about your lip accoutrements (or accoutreMA as the Winnebago Man famously said)? If you want a gleaming pout pronto, you need to go coGLOSSAL with your application, and that requires an absolutely enorm gloss moment. Start lifting finger weights; you’ll want your lip gloss hand ready for this madness. I’ve got two larger-than-life glosses for you to get involved with. Ready?
Avon SuperShock Liquid Lip Shine in Popsicle ($5) at avon.com. It comes in other colors as well, but my favorite is this fruit-punch shade that goes on sheer and makes a solid or neutral outfit infinitely more exciting. It’s also a fave of Avon Global Creative Color Director Jillian Dempsey. Plus, you can’t beat the price-point with a STICK. She suggests you rock it with a bronze eye–I suggest you foil that eye (wet your shadow brush first before applying a metallic powder shade like Urban Decay’s Eye Shadow in Baked).
Flirt! Big Flirt Lip Gloss ($15.50) launches this August and will be available exclusively on kohls.com. The collection boasts eight huge-as-hell glosses have enormous sponge-tip applicators and sheer, shimmery shades in varying hues of pink. Each would go most excellently with my Sparkle Neely, Sparkle! MAC Cosmetics eye shadow, if I do say so myself. BT dubs, it’s sold out, but there will be a second run. Stay tuned. The colors: Big Pink Sunshine, Coral Me Fabulous, Berry Bombshell, Big Blush (my personal fave), Bigger Than Rose, Big Time Nude, Big On Beige and Big Pink Kisses.
