A little while ago a new beauty based social networking site launched under the name of Baobella. It featuresloads of makeup and beauty inspiration from the members of the website in the form of makeup looks, swatches and hairstyles. There's even a built-in forum! After trialling the site earlier this year the lovely ladies at Baobella sent me out a little gift - the Bev Ridge and Friends "Distracted By Shiny Things" Lip Gloss Trio.
First and foremost I love with the Hawaiian-esque packaging. It's bright, colourful and would sit pretty on display. I'm not the biggest lipgloss fan around, so I was slightly apprehensive about these as I hate the sticky feeling that is often paired with them. I was pleasantly surprised, though. They are ever so slightly sticky, but they're more on the smooth side than anything else. My favourite is the deep pink shade, it's definitely a "my lips but better" shade on me and it pairs nicely with a lot of my lipsticks. My least favourite however is the baby pink shimmery shade, it washes me out - such a shame as it's a beaut of a colour!
I'd really recommend this little trio as a gift for someone who's starting out in makeup, it's nicely packaged, contains versatile shades and is friendly on your purse.
