Jane Iredale PureGloss for Lips, $19-$24.99 for .17 oz.

What: Angela puts Jane Iredale’s PureGloss lip color to the test.

The Lowdown:  The Jane Iredale website description of this product, which contains grape seed and pomegranate extracts, claims “a tingly mint and ginger flavor”; while providing moisture and staying power. The mint is prominent, but not in the best way possible, coming off smelling just little bit medicinal. The gloss is sticky going on, but becomes slightly less so once it’s on your lips; ” however, might be a misnomer – it looks more like a frosted lipstick, with less shine and more shimmer.  The upside?  It did have staying power, even through a couple cups of coffee. A side note: apparently this was the lip-treatment-of-choice for Best Actress nominee Abigail Breslin at the 2007 Academy Awards. She was 10 at the time. ” Nuff said.

Yea or Nay: Nay for me. Too much like sticky kids’ stuff, for a price that’s a little over the top.
