I saw that you didn't like the Nars lip gloss. I have 2 that I REALLY love! MAC Viva Glam VI (Any MAC with the sponge tip applicator rocks!) They are usually $15 and well worth it! Also, I got a Bare Minerals deal a couple months ago and I've found myself reaching for their Marvelous Moxie lip gloss ALL the time. It smells great and kind of peppermint. It's $18 at Ulta. Just my .02!
I'm 45 and have noticed A LOT of aging in the past 2 years. It's the SUN, people! Wear products on your face with sunscreen!!
