The Lipgloss Junkie

I've always had a fascination with makeup and all things beauty.  I remember as a kid, sitting at my grandmother's big, white, vanity and playing with her many silver tubes of Clinique lipstick and admiring her Pond's cold cream.  And I shudder at the thought, when my grandfather caught me, around 12, wearing bright red Wet n Wild lipstick ( I won't tell you what he called me...use your imagination).  My first kiss occurred only after applying one of my many (this is an understatement, I swear I had every flavor they made) Lipsmacker lip balms.  And I can still smell my mom's Fashion Fair Brown Sugar lipstick.

While my beauty love started with lipstick and lip balm, I believe my love affair with lipgloss started with Oh! Baby by MAC.  And it has continued to this day. I am always looking to try new or resurrect old shades and formulas.  One could say I'm kind of obsessed with my gloss. Recently, fed up with never being able to get the last drop out of the tube, I did a little surgery.  Maybe a little extreme for some, but not for the lipgloss junkie.   What are your lip loves?
