How to get it for free?
Go to CVS anytime before coming Sunday, buy the Amazemint lipgloss in your choice of color to get Extracare savings coupon worth the cost of your gloss - $5.50! Its as good as getting it free!!! Now invest that$5.50 in buying anything you please!!! That for me would be more makeup...I really wanna try Maybelline AgeRewind Concealer.

So, yeah ..the gloss. According to CG - "CoverGirl Wetslicks Amazemint isn't just a lipgloss, it's a smile treatment! Crest Peppermint Oil provides a minty breath sensation while the gloss itself gives a dazzling high-shine without all that "sticky"."

I got the gloss in Everything's Rosy, its a rose shade with a little bit of dual colored effect. The gloss as mentioned above has a strong minty flavor and comes in 13 shades. It didnot do much in ways of brightening my smile but did make my breath feel minty fresh. The staying power of the gloss is poor and the pigmentation is only a little better than that. If its meant to be a sheer gloss then thats what it is. The color I got was very good in giving a pink nude effect to my lips. The pigmentation is just about enough to get my upper and lower lips in the same tone without looking all made up in the process. It gives a natural shine to the lips, nothing gawdy hence making it perfectly usable for work too.

The applicator is sponge tip ...which I personally dont like at all. I prefer the brush type. I also am not a big fan of the blue packaging...but hey I got it for free...so I am not gonna complain any more :)

Finalwords : this would be the gloss I would reach for when I dont know what else to wear. Its a safe bet for work/play. It would have been a much better buy if the staying power was better...

RKD: I agree...the color is less n so is the staying power...my store didnt have the red one...so I could not check it out. SOmehow I have never been a big fan of CG...

Hi Roopscoop,
For me a good lipgloss is one with decent pigmentation, not sticky/ heavy on my lips, gives a good amount of shine and can stay put for at least 2 to 3 hours :)
