Last week, we asked you to share how your lip gloss addiction began. We really enjoyed traveling down memory lane with you all, but there can be only one winner for the entire collection of Avon Glazewear Lip Glosses, and it’s thesirensong for her comment that shows the value of traditions and friendships:
“I’ve known my best friend since we were in grade 4, at the height of lip smackers’ glory. So for my birthday, she included a stick with my present – and then again at Christmas. It’s not lip smackers anymore, but it’s been 12 years and I still get lip gloss twice a year, without fail. She actually hid it one year, and laughed hysterically when I looked confused and slowly thanked her, thinking she’d forgotten. I’m pretty sure I’ll get lip gloss from her on my 90th birthday!
Over the last 12 years, I’ve probably tried every kind of gloss there is; expensive, cheap, tasty, glossy, glittery. She’s never gifted me with the same line twice, but she’s usually inspired me to go out and buy most of whatever line she chose that time. There’s never a day I don’t have at least five tubes on my person.
To me, lip gloss is a reminder of my friendship with her. I pick up a tube and I can think of all the memories associated with that year, even if it’s one I bought myself, it’s always about her.”
Thanks for commenting, and don’t forget to enter this week’s contest!
