I'm in the US and it's so dry here it's unreal. Okay, it's not that dry, but my lips are really noticing and begging for some moisture. I hit the local drug store and picked up a few lip products to try. One of them was Maybelline's Shine Sensational Lipgloss which I hadn't heard of before. I randomly picked out no. 70 Mad About Melon based soley on the colour - I wasn't sure if they tasted like the name or not.
I'm pretty happy with my purchase. My lips feel much better. Ah, moisture! I like the colour as well. Light colour that's barely noticeable on the lips, but tonnes of shine and sparkle. And, these do taste/smell. So while I'm not actually mad about melon myself, I like melon, but I don't really wanna taste it all the time, it is a neat idea. I'd especially recommend it if you like flavoured glosses. I got this for just under $6, but apparently Target has it for as little as $4. If I can find it for $4, I may be tempted to get a few more. I'm not massive on flavoured glosses, but all in all, I'd give another a try especially with names like: Minty Sheer, Cherry Bloom, Freshly Sliced, Glamourous Guava, Mad About Melon, Crazy for Caramel, Cocoa Fever, Berry Dazzle, Cranberry Crave, Crushed Candy, Peach Sorbet, Treat Me Sweet, Cherry Kiss, Watermelon Punch, Berry Bella, Sweet Indulgence, Sparkling Grape, and Tempting Toffee.
Have you tried it? Are there any flavours or colours that tempt you?
