|Left to Right: Stripper, Retox|
I got a pack of four of these forever ago for like $20 bucks (yes, full sized!), but they were priced at $18 a piece on their own. Don't get me wrong, these are some of my favorite glosses, but at $18 each, while I fully intended to buy more colors, I always wound up opting for more pigmented options from other brands in the same price range. I had Stormy, a gorgeous purple that fell out of my pocket one fateful day (insert super-mega-sadface here). There was also a red called Strutter, but I'm not a huge red gloss girl, so I may review that gloss separately someday.
Moving on, let's talk about why I really like these glosses. In two words? Great texture. There's glitter in this, but I can't feel it! Moreover it's what I'm going to call semi-non-sticky: not sticky and thick enough to stick to my hair constantly, but not greasy or thin enough to wear right off. I get about four hours of wear with this even when I lick my lips.

On to the colors:
|LtR: Retox, Stripper|
Stripper is a light gold with gold shimmer.
I don't necessarily think these look so different on me when I'm actually wearing them that I'd really need both.

- Beautiful packaging.
- Great texture.
- Sheer, but not too sheer (at least for me).
- Long wear: 4 or 5 hours on me!
Nothing on this one.
- It looks like it could be being discontinued, unfortunately.
Retox is currently available at Sephora for $5.00. I can't find Stripper, but Hustler's there. Ha!
