I Love Samples! Smashbox Fame Lip Gloss

Good morning everyone! I can't believe I have 1,000 followers on my blog! Wahoo!! I need to think of a giveaway. I have a few ideas, hopefully by the end of the week I will have a give-away posted. Let's see if I can finalize one of my ideas.

In the meantime today I bring you another sample. This sample I have had for a while. I think it came with some stuff I ordered online. This is Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss in Fame. I'm not a huge gloss fan. If I wear a gloss, I wear Victoria's Secret Very Voluptuous Lip Plumper. Not that I need a lip plumper, but I just like that gloss, I have been wearing it for years when I want a gloss. As many of you know, once I find something that works, I tend to stick with it. No need to change it if I love it as it is. So this little Smashbox sample has sat there since December. Doing this little sample preview on the blog has got me going through my samples and trying ones that would have probably just sat there.

Smashbox Lip Enhancing Gloss retails for $18. The description on the Smashbox sight says:

Drench your lips in luminous color and shine with LIP ENHANCING GLOSS. This gloss keeps lips soft and smooth. In 3 color formulas for a range of dazzling looks. Enhance your lips like never before. Winner of Allure Magazine''s Editor''s Choice Award for Best Lip Gloss. SHEER COLOR - Full of shine polymers with a hint of glistening color for gorgeous reflective shine. Brush wand flawlessly coats lips.TRUE COLOR - Vitamin E and sunflower seed oil nourish with a touch of creamy color and soft radiant shine. Velour wand perfectly contours lips. FULL COLOR - Saturate lips with high-impact color and brilliant, three-dimensional pearlescent shine. Velour wand ensures color precision and control.

Experiment with color! Wear sheer shades alone for a glossy tint or over lipstick for extra glamour, and true and full shades in place of lipstick for long-lasting color and luminosity.

I have to say I like this gloss. It feels light and not as thick as some other glosses I have tried. I like that it gives a subtle color to my lips. It is a soft pinky plum color and it suits my skin tone quite nicely. Would I buy a full size of this one? Yup absolutely! I just wish I tried this one sooner, it would have been perfect for the summer! I have a feeling trying all my samples is going to end up costing me a lot of money! 


  1. This color looks great on you!

  2. Very pretty on you. That's a nice sized sample too.
