Welcome to another edition of "TJ-maxx Has the Best Crap". As I am getting older, I am doing an active attempt to cut down from toy purchases. While I have been doing well at the drugstore front, I have been letting my guard down a little more frequently at Marshalls and TJ. At least I have been putting on a more stringent rule: Buy what I actually use and "If it's cheaper than an order of fries, hell yeah just buy it".
Our office building cafeteria now charges 3 dollars for fries. One more reason to save my lunch money for more worthy causes (like lipstick addiction).
Korres Cherry Lip Gloss is something that I haven't seen at Sephora due to their shrinking presence. The retail price is somewhere in the upper teen, which I suppose is the reason nobody buys them/they ended up at discount stores.
Applicator is standard doe foot. The gloss has an almond/glazed cherry scent from presumably the cherry oil. I am not sure if that's a great choice for ingredient because...cyanide has similar smell?
The gloss has a slightly creamy gel texture that's non-sticky moderately hydrating and comfortable. It's nice but there isn't anything unique about it. Even though the pigmentation is decent, it takes me a few dips to get an even and plush coat for my entire mouth.
25 Natural Purple is (obviously not remotely purple but) a warm rosy brown that's natural and easy to wear. I like it but I prefer a bit more impact (deeper or in a rich chocolate tone) for me to bother putting it on.
It was 2.99 so I am not going to complain.
