Time To Revive Your 5th Grade Beauty Regimen: Estée Lauder Is Selling Roll-On Lipgloss
9:30 am, March 7th | by Colette McIntyre
Remember the good ol’ days, sharing a bedroom mirror with your five best — well, four best friends and Katie (ugh), getting ready for the graduation dance, listening to Kevin Lyttle’s “Turn Me On,” fighting over who was going to get to talk to Mike Patakie first, adjusting the straps of your fluorescent pink halter top, swapping a Dr. Pepper Lipsmacker between all of your gurlz (except Katie…ugh), spreading Bonne Bell glitter gel on your eyelids, waking up the next morning with a stray butterfly clip lodged in the back of your hair and a stye from sharing eyeliner with Madison behind the bleachers? Those were the best days of your life.
While Estée Lauder can’t get a fifth-grade version of Mike Patakie to actually dance with you, the famed beauty line is bringing back another coveted component of your ’90s heyday: the roll-on lipgloss. This month, the company is introducing their Pure Color Sheer Roller Gloss in two shades, the tangerine Succulent and the pink Squeeze. NY Mag reports that “while both colors look punchy in their lucite, there isn’t much color payoff.” Color, shmolor; what’s really important is that your lips will look as wet and melty as they did on the summer camp bus back in ’99 when you got kissed for the first time. More importantly, with Estée Lauder Roller Gloss, your lipgloss will be both cool and poppin’ — and isn’t that what you really want?
