OK, I’m just going to say it . . . I’m addicted to lip balm. In fact, I’m so addicted that, last year at BJ’s, I purchased the HUGE packages of 2 of the major brands. I have a tube at my desk and in my purse at all times. Oh, and in the van too. Quite often, there’s also a tube in my pocket! I know it’s not a healthy addiction; but, quite frankly, I don’t care.
I’m not a fancy girl. Lipstick isn’t my thing. It’s too heavy. I do own a few tubes of lipstick; but I really only wear it on VERY special occasions. My favorite shade is actually one that I got from Mary Kay®.
With Mary Kay® NouriShine Plus™ Lip Gloss, you can kiss those dull lips goodbye—it’s time to shine! Its lip nourishing formula delivers an instant boost of hydration, with a Hollywood-ready polished, stay-put shine.

Here is a bit more information about this line of lip gloss:

So, what did I – the lip balm freak – think? Well . . .
Because I’m not a big fan of HUGE color on my lips, I tried the Cream & Sugar first. I really liked it. It gave me just a hint of color, which was very nice for everyday.
Ashley wanted to take one to try and knew that I would also lay claim to the Café Au Lait, since she knows I go for the more neutral, warm tones. So, she took the Pink Parfait.
I tried the Mango Tango on Sunday morning, thinking it might be nice for church; but it was just way too dark for my taste. I love wearing red clothing, but considering the darkness of the Mango Tango, I know I can’t even try that Rock ‘n’ Red!
Therefore, for me, I like the lighter shades. They stay on quite nicely and they feel ok, though they are definitely a lot more sticky than lip balm. The light vanilla flavor is nice.
