Today's post is just going to be a quick review of something AWESOME I spotted at the drugstore recently.
And that would be the Jesse's Girl Glowstix Lipglosses!
Seriously, as a I walked by these glosses, I stopped dead in my tracks, and knew I needed to have all three shades that were available. They're $4.99 each at my local Rite Aid. While the way they looked in the packaging drew me in, I was curious as to how they would apply, and how they would look on the lips.

While they all look very similar in the light in their packaging, you can really see the difference in the colors when swatched, or when worn on the lips. They give such a neat holographic effect!

When applied, Tangerine gives off a slight orangey sheen, with hunts of greens and other colors. Probably the most variety in shades is found in this one. Wicked, is clearly the most interesting color. It gives off a green glow, and literally looks like you've cracked open a glowstick, and smeared it all over your lips! (Hey, maybe not for everyone, but Halloween IS ONLY 95 days away.) And Red Dawn is the most neutral of the bunch. Mostly clear, but gives off a pretty reddish/pinkish glow.
On their own, very interesting, but these could be paired with ANY lip color or lipstick to take it to a whole new dimension! For $4.99 a pop, I would definitely recommend picking at least one of these up and giving it a try. If anything, it looks interesting on your makeup desk or in your purse!
