"I hate lipstick!" my friend Jess proclaimed through crunches of popcorn while gesturing at a lipstick ad in a magazine. Lipstick was so bold, drying, frosty, and made her think of something her Granny would wear. No thanks, she was a gloss girl only.
While the conversation went on I quietly disappeared into The Beauty Room, grabbed a box I was sent and rejoined the group.
I opened the box like it was full of chocolates. These lipsticks were inside:
"Oooh! What's that?" "Is this new?" began the chorus. Since I had given them free reign through my monthly beauty discards, this new box of items grabbed their curiosity.
So what are these lipsticks?
Blurred Lines by It Cosmetics, and they're for those of you who aren't into lipstick.
You will love them. And they're new!

I like how the shades range in very natural (like Love) to those with more pigmentation (like It Girl). Two of the shades have a bit of sparkle in the tube but it doesn't appear on lips (Ruby Slippers).
My fave feature--the hydration and slickness/shininess of gloss without the stickiness. Just natural. Perfect for the cooler months, too.
So how did my friends like them? They're fans, even Jess! She liked how fast it was to apply, the fact that she got moisture but with pigmentation and shine. She said it's kind of like a lip stain in how it looked, but it didn't stain the lips. Yes!
Have you tried It Cosmetics?
