There are two schools of thought when it comes to flavored
tastes and scents in lip gloss. You either love it or
you don’t. Never one to leave a stone unturned,
I tasted and sniffed out the market’s most delicious
and nutritious glosses.
Lucky Chick’s Lucky Lips Mimosa Jasmine &
Violet Lip Shine is enriched with soothing Vitamin
E. While this exciting floral combination produces
a smooth high-gloss and a rosy hint of color. But
it’s hard not to lick at the sweet taste. Gloss
on Vanilla Shine for a delicious, sheer shimmer. $12
to find a store near you.
A Hint of Mint
Keeping a tube of minty-fresh Hint of Mint super-shine
gloss on you at all times is must. From Boston’s
fabulous make-up artist Debra Macki, with one app,
you’re fully glossed and your breath is freshened.
We’re not sure how that works, but it does.
A soft palette of colors works well alone or over
lipstick. Color pick: “Juicy”, a rich
red. $16 at www.debramacki.com.

Curling Up with a Good Book
We’re hanging on every word of AlleyKats Lip
Gloss Book. An adorable gift for the teen set (especially
if her name is Alison), the notebook opens to reveal
a mirror, mini lip brush and two tasty glosses, light
pink’s watermelon-strawberry and dark pink’s
grape-strawberry. Yum, perfect for when you can’t
chew gum in class. $9.50 at www.allykats.com.

In a Rush
Beauty’s Beauty Rush gloss takes the cake literally
for a rainbow of lickity-split flavors. From Latte
Love and Toasty Almond to Peach Buzz and Piece of
Cake, these are as tasty as they are shiny, and at
a nice price, you can afford to splurge all your faves.
Color pick: Grapefruit Blast. $7 each, 3 for $15 at
here for beauty store locations.
Kick those cravings and that oral fixation with Hard
Candy’s Lollipop Lip Gloss. In a bevy of flavored
swirly combos (we love Raspberry Kiss with Chocolate)
we’re reminded of those long-lost Lifesaver
swirl suckers we once loved. With creamy textures
and moisturizing shine, we’re quite satisfied
with this treat. $6 at www.sephora.com.
Wear it, then share it
In Bubble Gum, Cotton Candy, Butterscotch Toffee,
Banana Split, Cotton Candy, Lollipop and Creamsicle,
these kissable goodies from Dessert Treats don’t
disappoint. And there’s even a plumping component
for a perfectly sweet pout.
Flavor pick: Bubble Gum. $11.99 at Walgreens stores
and at www.walgreens.com.
