You read the title correctly, I did in fact say lip gloss lovin'. I know, I'm just as shocked as you are. I have never been a gloss fan until now thanks to the newly purchased Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in 01 Naked.
I have lip products scattered around the house, in my drawer at work and in every bag I am guaranteed to tote around several lip balms and lipsticks. Yes, plural. But glosses? I'm not normally a wearer of lip glosses, remembering them as being sticky, gloopy, hair-stuck-to-lips affairs. The gloss/balm hybrid of the Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors is as far as I'll go.
I bought the shade 01 Naked which is a pinkish toned nude with subtle golden shimmer. Being the lip gloss newbie that I am, I don't have anything to compare it to. I generally shy away from anything that has shimmer or sparkle but this is so fine it is barely detectable and just adds a little something to it. Pigmented and super smooth to apply. I find this the creamy texture means that it is very comfortable to wear it feels moisturising and is long lasting on the lips. Equally beautiful worn alone or paired with a lipstick. Like the lipsticks it has a slight vanilla scent.
I wanted to hate this. I'm not even much of a gloss wearer. In my defence, I was at the Tom Ford counter buying a present so I bought myself something too, naturally. The price is insane. But hey, it's Tom Ford.
